Stephen Stills: "Neil Young and I are both kinda dorky…"

Stephen Stills looks back over his musical career, recalling his work with Neil Young, David Crosby and Graham Nash, among others, in the new issue of Uncut, out tomorrow (February 28).

He discusses his friendship with Jimi Hendrix, hanging out with Peter Sellers and Ringo Starr and plucking up the courage to sing in front of Joni Mitchell.

Stills also recalls hooking up with Neil Young in Los Angeles to form Buffalo Springfield.

“I see the Ontario licence plate. Wait, that’s a hearse from Ontario. I know who that is.

The new issue of Uncut is out on Thursday, February 28.
