Stephen Stills

Stephen Stills is an American singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. He is best known as a founding member of two of rock’s most enduring bands: folk-rock ensemble Buffalo Springfield and vocal supergroup Crosby, Stills, Nash and (occasionally) Young.

Stills wrote “For What It’s Worth,” a top-ten hit for Buffalo Springfield in 1967, and one of the defining anthems of the era. In 1969, Stills joined forces with Graham Nash (from the Hollies) and David Crosby (from the Byrds) and their convergent harmonies produced one of the most successful touring and recording acts of all time. Stills also maintained a thriving solo career—his 1970 debut included the hit single, “Love the One You’re With,” and is the only album to feature cameos by both Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton.

In 1997, Stills was the first person to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice on the same night for his work with Buffalo Springfield and CSNY. He is a multiple Grammy Award winner, a member of the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, and a BMI Music Icon.
