Rock & Roll Woman

With intertwining acoustic and electric guitars, and Buffalo Springfield’s effervescent backup harmonies, Stephen Stills paid tribute to a “Rock & Roll Woman” who epitomized cool hipness. The lyrics were inspired by one of the biggest female rock superstars of the age, Jefferson Airplane’s Grace Slick. The idea for the music, Stills confirmed, “came from jamming with David Crosby at his house. We got hung up on the F to D change in D-modal, which is mountain minor tuning. We kept playing it over and over and over again.”
