1969 SONG OF THE DAY–‘LONG TIME GONE’- CROSBY, STILLS AND NASH

1969 Song of the Day- “Long Time Gone” by Crosby, Stills and Nash. Long Time Gone was written and sung by David Crosby- and was on Crosby, Stills and Nash’s self-titled debut album. It is probably the most famous CSN song that Crosby wrote and sang. Here is what he said about the song–“It was written the night Bobby Kennedy was killed. I believed in him because he said he wanted to make some positive changes in America, and he hadn’t been bought and sold like Johnson and Nixon – cats who made their deals years ago with the special interests in this country in order to gain power. I thought Bobby, like his brother, was a leader who had not made those deals. I was already angry about Jack Kennedy getting killed and it boiled over into this song when they got his brother, too.

  1. Powerful spokespeople for the flower power generation and you’re not going to get any better musicians than these guys. I watched a documentary about a month ago that covered their traveling around the country in more recent times, trying to stir up some fever with Neil. The Kennedy boys’ murders, along with King, Evers, and X, took good people out of the positive energy, power from, with, and to the people side of things.
