Stephen Stills: "I'm a little like Taylor Swift"

Stephen Stills has compared himself to pop superstar Taylor Swift.

Interviewed in the current issue of Uncut, Stills is asked whether he ever felt he uncomfortable revealing so much of himself in his love songs.

“No,” replied Stills. “I’m a little like Taylor Swift in that regard. Wear your heart on your sleeve, then just write about it. Fuck ‘em.”

Stills also revealed that Neil Young is his closest musical compatriot, far more so even the other two CSNY members.

“By about five miles…I think it’s probably because we both have a taste of autism,” he explains. “…It’s like we bonded so deep that he’s actually going to be pissed if I don’t call him soon.”

In the interview Stills also discusses his recording session with Jimi Hendrix, writing “For What It’s Worth” and reveals the details of how he, David Crosby and Graham Nash started singing together.
