Crosby, Still, Nash & Young - Almost Cut My Hair

The musical partnership of David Crosby (born August 14, 1941), Stephen Stills (born January 3, 1945), and Graham Nash (born February 2, 1942), with and without Neil Young (born November 12, 1945), was not only one of the most successful touring and recording acts of the late '60s, '70s, and early '80s -- with the colorful, contrasting nature of the members' characters and their connection to the political and cultural upheavals of the time -- it was the only American-based band to approach the overall societal impact of the Beatles.

  1. was this the last time the youth of america were as united as they have ever been? has anything really changed? is this a song of past, present and future? a song of the inability to defeat a system and organization as strong as mankind? is this a song about vietnam, about the draft, about not conforming? or is this song about almost killing oneself, about taking oneself to the edge and turning back. you decide. regardless the song is one of the most powerful, prolific and purely emotional songs i've ever heard
