Love this song. As for the trivia question...

Crosby - Byrds
Nash - Hollies
Stills and Young - Buffalo Springfield.

Aaahh - the late 60s - my college years. Seems like yesterday.


Neil Young also played with Rick James. The "Superfreak" Rick James.

Adam Turinas

Now that's a good bit of trivia. When?


I can hear Artie now in this song since you mentioned it!
