The never-ending soap opera that is Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young carried on recently when Graham Nash appeared on SiriusXM’s Ron and Fez show, where he refused to completely rule out the possibility of more CSNY activity in the future. “You can never say never in this business,” he said. “You’ve got to understand: Neil Young knows what we bring to this music. He’s not a fool. He’s just a little upset right now. And I understand it.”

For those new to to the saga, David Crosby recently labeled Young’s girlfriend Daryl Hannah a “purely poisonous predator” in an interview with The Idaho Statesmen. Crosby’s comments infuriated Young, causing the singer to refer to Crosby as “whatshisname” when he spoke to Howard Stern last month. “I wish him the best with his life,” Young said. “[A CSNY reunion] will never happen. Not in a million years. If you make a mistake, you have to fix it right away.” Crosby refused to back away from the comments, saying on Twitter that he had “no regrets.”

Despite all that, Nash still holds out hope. “It would be sad to me if the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young didn’t go forward because of an inappropriate statement by David to Neil about his relationship with Daryl Hannah,” he said. “If we’re not more grown up and if we’re not more realistic about what the true value of our friendship is, it would be very sad to me.”

CSNY last played together at the Bridge School Benefit in October of 2013. Their last tour was in 2006 in support of Young’s politically charged LP Living With War, though CSN tour heavily every year. In recent Tweets, Crosby has said that CSN are planning on touring the UK next year and he plans on hitting the road for a solo acoustic run.
