If the life of this band was as repetitive and boring as this book, we might never have been treated to their great music. I am a fan of CSNY's music, but like many fans my age, I lost track of the band after the mid-70's. This book fills in all the blanks, more blanks than I really needed to know about. CSNY's story illustrates what happens to many popular bands, with some members seeking solo careers, some or all depending on past popularity to keep up the cash flow they've come to rely on.
It's obvious that a lot of research went into this book. But do we really need to know what happened to these guys every day for 50 years. You'd have to be a diehard, obsessive fan to be want to follow every spat and breakup of CSNY during that time. So, for you diehard fans, this book is a wealth of information. For the rest of us, we could probably skip the middle 200 pages.
