DAVID CROSBY recalls CONCERT 
 
at ROOSEVELT STADIUM Jersey City, NJ
 
The DAY NIXON RESIGNED
 
 
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young fans have waited 40 years for a live album from the band’s legendary 1974 tour — and their patience is about to pay off in spades. Coming on July 8th is CSNY 1974, a three-CD, one-DVD set due which chronicles the band’s most extensive tour to that point and despite being halfway through the 1970’s, to many, capped the end of the ‘60s.
David Crosby recalled the infamous tour, which saw the band performing both group and solo sets within a massive show that often broke the three-hour mark, telling The Wall Street Journal, “Our relationships got better and worse at the same time. After that tour, I realized that cocaine has a terrible effect on everything and that all drugs are not the same. If we had just been smoking pot, we probably would have been the same old band. All of us have done better work since the tour. Individually, we didn’t peak then — but the band did.”
Two major moments happened to the band during the ’74 trek; “Mama” Cass Elliott, the woman who introduced Graham Nash to David Crosby and Stephen Stills died, and Richard Nixon resigned the presidency in disgrace following the Watergate scandal. Crosby recalled the resignation and the show that followed: “The most memorable moment for me was the August 8th concert at Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City, New Jersey. While we were on, President Nixon went on TV and said he was resigning the next day. When we heard backstage, we went bonkers. Graham announced it to the audience and the place went completely up for grabs. It was a moment of complete and utter joy, that a dark cloud was finally lifting and everyone there had somehow been a part of it. We immediately performed my ‘Long Time Gone.’”

We also went to the Top of The EMPIRE STATE BUILDING that day …
 
To get to Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City from Carlstadt New Jersey we had to
first take a Bus to the Port Authority Bus Station in New York in order to catch a
bus to the stadium, so we decided to go to the top of the EMPIRE STATE BUILDING first.
 
It was quite a day for two Teenagers from New Jersey, “to say the least!”
