from Wiki:
Stephen Arthur Stills (born January 3, 1945) is an American singer and multi-instrumentalist best known for his work with Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

Beginning his professional career with Buffalo Springfield, he composed one of their few hits "For What It's Worth," which became one of the most recognizable songs of the 1960s. Buffalo Springfield also recorded "Mr. Soul" which became a very popular song covered by numerous bands including the Grateful Dead. Other notable songs he contributed to the band were "Sit Down, I Think I Love You," "Bluebird" and "Rock & Roll Woman." According to bandmate Richie Furay, he was "the heart and soul of Buffalo Springfield."

After Buffalo Springfield broke up, Stills began working with David Crosby and Graham Nash on their debut album. Stills, in addition to writing much of the album, played bass, guitar, and keyboards on most of the album. The album sold over four million copies and at that point, had outsold anything from the three members' prior bands: the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, and the Hollies. The album won the trio a Grammy Award for Best New Artist.

Neil Young, formerly of Buffalo Springfield, joined CSN months later for their second concert at Woodstock and subsequent album Déjà Vu. Stills played bass, guitar and keyboard on the title track, and electric guitar and piano on Helpless. The album became a huge success and sold over eight million copies. In its wake all four members of CSNY released solo albums that reached the top 20.

Stills' first solo album Stephen Stills went gold and is the only album to feature both Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton. Its hit single, "Love the One You're With" became his biggest solo hit peaking at No. 14 in the Billboard Hot 100.[3] A string of solo albums, and a band with Chris Hillman called Manassas followed in 1972. In the summer of 1974 Young reunited with CSN after a four-year hiatus for a concert tour which was recorded and released in 2014 as CSNY 1974. It was one of the first ever stadium tours, and the largest tour the band has done to date. CSN reunited in 1977 for their album CSN which became the trio's best selling record. CSN(Y) continued to have platinum albums through the 1980s. Stills' solo career and bands have combined sales of over 35 million albums to date.

Stills was ranked #28 in Rolling Stone's 2003 list of "The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" and #47 in the 2011 list. Stills became the first person to be inducted twice on the same night into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his work with CSN and Buffalo Springfield. According to Neil Young, "Stephen is a genius."

Solo years
In the wake of CSNY's success, all four members recorded high-profile solo albums. In 1970, Stills released his eponymous solo debut album which featured guests Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Cass Elliot, Booker T. Jones and Ringo Starr (credited only as "Richie") as well as David Crosby, Graham Nash, Rita Coolidge and CSNY drummers Dallas Taylor and Johnny Barbata. It provided Stills with the hit single "Love the One You're With." Stills followed this with Stephen Stills 2, which featured "Change Partners." Even though the song was written before CSN formed, Nash saw it as a metaphor for the many relationships in CSNY. In 1971, Stills played guitar for the Bill Withers album, Just as I Am, including the Grammy-winning song, "Ain't No Sunshine".

In late 1971, Stills teamed up with ex-Byrd Chris Hillman to form the band Manassas. Their self-titled double album was a mixture of rock, country, blues, bluegrass and Latin music divided into different sections. All of Stills' albums after Buffalo Springfield had gone either gold or platinum; the Manassas follow-up album the next year Down the Road was his first LP that did not. After the CSNY reunion tour in 1974, he signed to Columbia Records for three albums: Stills in 1975; Illegal Stills in 1976; and Thoroughfare Gap in 1978. Also in 1976, Stills played percussion on the Bee Gees' song "You Should Be Dancing".

In 1979 he traveled to Havana, Cuba, to participate in the Havana Jam festival that took place between March 2–4, alongside Weather Report, the Trio of Doom, Fania All-Stars, Billy Swan, Bonnie Bramlett, Mike Finnigan, Kris Kristofferson, Rita Coolidge and Billy Joel, plus an array of Cuban artists such as Irakere, with whom he toured the US after the Havana concerts. His performance is captured on Ernesto Juan Castellanos's documentary Havana Jam '79.

In 1984, Right by You would be the final Stills album to make the Billboard 200 album chart, with Stills Alone issued in 1991. In 1997, Stills became the first person to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice in the same night for his work with CSN and the Buffalo Springfield. Fender Guitars crafted a custom guitar and presented it to Stills to commemorate the occasion, a Telecaster-style guitar bearing an inscription on the neck plate.

2005 saw Stills release Man Alive!, his first solo offering in 14 years. Man Alive! was released on the small English independent folk rock label Talking Elephant, and was not widely reviewed. The record did not chart on either side of the Atlantic, and was received lukewarmly by the few critics who did review it.

Throughout 2006 and 2007, Stills toured regularly as a solo artist with "the Quartet", which consisted of drummer Joe Vitale, either Mike Finnigan or session player Todd Caldwell on keyboards, and either Kevin McCormick or Kenny Pasarelli on bass. On May 28, 2007, Stills sang the National Anthem for Game 1 of the 2007 Stanley Cup Finals between the Anaheim Ducks and Ottawa Senators in Anaheim, California.

On December 17, 2007, Graham Nash revealed on Larry King Live that Stills had been diagnosed with early stage prostate cancer and that his operation would take place on January 3, 2008, which is Stills' birthday.[19] Stills said later in January 2008 that he had come through the operation with "flying colors."

Stills toured Europe as a solo artist for the first time during October 2008. In 2011, Stills contributed a song, "Low Barefoot Tolerance," to the soundtrack of a documentary produced by J. Ralph, Wretches & Jabberers.

On August 27, 2013, Stephen Stills released the album, Can't Get Enough with Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Barry Goldberg as the blues band the Rides. The band toured to support this release in 2013.

On August 12, 2014, Watsky released the album "All You Can Do", featuring a song with Stills, "Cannonball".

On May 6, 2016, Stephen Stills released anothe album, Pierced Arrow with Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Barry Goldberg as the blues band the Rides.

Billboard 200 Chart Moves: Van Morrison Celebrates 50 Years on Chart as 'Roll With the Punches' Debuts
By Keith Caulfield | October 05, 2017 10:41 PM EDT

— Stephen Stills & Judy Collins, Everybody Knows – No. 195 — The former lovers join together to sing on an album for the first time, as Everybody Knows debuts at No. 195. The set earned 5,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Sept. 28, with nearly all of that sum coming from traditional album sales. The effort also starts at No. 9 on the Americana/Folk Albums tally. It’s Stills’ first chart entry outside of super groups Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young since 1984’s Right By You (No. 75). In total, Everybody Knows is Stills’ 12th entry (again, outside of his super group collaborations). As for Collins, the new album is her 18th charting effort, and second this decade, following 2015’s Strangers Again (which peaked at No. 77).

Stephen Stills, Judy Collins Set 2018 Tour
http://bestclassicbands.com/stephen-sti ... r-2-15-18/

When Stephen Stills and Judy Collins toured together in 2017, we wrote: “The only lingering question is what took them so long, and will they perhaps consider doing it again.” The pair even recorded a 2017 album, Everybody Knows, their first together.

They enjoyed themselves so much, they’re doing it again in 2018, with 22 dates already scheduled for May and June. (Last year’s tour numbered well over 40 dates.) The veteran performers have even set up their own website.

In 2011, Collins published her memoir, Sweet Judy Blue Eyes: My Life in Music. The title was, of course, a pun on the song “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” which appeared on Crosby, Stills and Nash’s 1969 self-titled debut. The classic rock song’s title famously refers to Stills‘ then-girlfriend, the aforementioned Miss Collins. When the song was officially released, Stills was just 24 years old; the blue-eyed Collins was 30.

Collins, who turns 79 on May 1, first gained attention in 1967 with her Top 10 single “Both Sides, Now,” written by Joni Mitchell. She’s earned two other Top 20 singles: a 1970 version of “Amazing Grace” and a 1977 re-release of Stephen Sondheim’s “Send in the Clowns.” She recently published another book, Cravings, which is described as a “no-holds barred account of her harrowing struggle of compulsive overeating and the journey that led her to a solution.” Stills turned 73 on January 3.

Robbie wrote:Charts Analysis: The Greatest Showman still rules on albums chart
by Alan Jones

Petula Clark is the oldest female solo artist to chart an album of new material, being 83 when From Now On made the Top 75 in 2016 – but it is still a significant achievement for Joan Baez's 25th and final studio album, Whistle Down The Wind to do likewise a few weeks after her 77th birthday. Debuting at No.47 (2,041 sales), it is Baez's first studio album since 2008, when Day After Tomorrow reached No.100. Baez's long time friend Judy Collins is a year older, and misses out on a return to the Top 75 herself this week, as her Everybody Knows album – a collection of collaborations with former (as in the late 1960s) boyfriend Stephen Stills (a mere 73 years old) – debuts at No.148 (877 sales).
