Neil Young and Stephen Stills will once again share the stage on April 10th for the Light Up The Blues – Benefiting Autism Speaks concert at L.A.'s Greek Theatre. Stills and wife Kristen launched the charity gig back in 2013 to benefit and support Autism Speaks. The organization is near and dear to Stills' heart with his adult son Henry on the autism spectrum.
Also slated to perform are Willie Nelson, Willie's son Lukas Nelson and Promise Of The Real, Stills' sons Chris & Oliver Stills, Lucius, Fantastic Negrito, Will Breman — with Jack Black serving as the night's emcee. The event was originally scheduled to play last May 30th, but postponed due to the pandemic.
Stephen Stills and Neil Young's musical connection goes back to the heady Sunset Strip days. Stills told us that Buffalo Springfield self-destructed after only three albums, because they were simply too hot to last: “It was so laden with talent, this bunch, that we just hit the track going so fast that we went into the wall with no skid marks. Y'know, we spun out, but we spun out because we didn't realize how hot the car was.”
