Happy Birthday to the great Stephen Stills, who celebrates his 76th birthday on Monday, January 3rd. The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer will forever be remembered for his legendary work with Buffalo Springfield; Crosby, Stills, & Nash; Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; Manassas, and on his own. Stills last grabbed headlines for his string of sold-out shows with former girlfriend Judy Collins, along with the pair's critically acclaimed 2017 joint album, Everybody Knows. In recent years, Stills successfully rebounded from prostate cancer.
Earlier this year, Stills teamed up with entertainer Billy Porter to motivate voters by releasing their recent collaboration, “For What It’s Worth (Something Happening Here Remix).” Proceeds from the song went to benefit Michelle Obama's When We All Vote, a non-profit, nonpartisan organization that closes the race and age voting gap by shifting the culture around voting.
Aside from his brilliant ability to play nearly every instrument he's ever touched, Stills is above and beyond one of the key songwriters of his generation as well as a groundbreaking acoustic and electric guitarist. His songs came to help define his times starting with the Springfield's “For What It's Worth” and “Bluebird,” CSN and CSNY's “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,” “Helplessly Hoping,” “49 Bye-Byes,” “You Don't Have To Cry,” “Wooden Ships,” “Carry On,” “4+20,” “Dark Star,” “See The Changes,” “Southern Cross” — along with his signature solo anthem, “Love The One You're With.”
