Crosby, Stills, Nash music was removed from Spotify after they had requested the streaming service for the same in February as per the reports of Billboard. It was done in a stance against Joe Rogan, who is a podcaster on the streaming service.
Crosby, Stills, Nash returned to Spotify
The music supergroup — featuring members David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash — announced their intention to leave Spotify after friend and fellow band member Neil Young pulled his music in January.
The band members, in a joint statement, said they agreed with Young’s concerns of Rogan spreading “dangerous disinformation” about the pandemic through his podcast.
“While we always value alternate points of view, knowingly spreading disinformation during this global pandemic has deadly consequences,” the band wrote. “Until real action is taken to show that a concern for humanity must be balanced with commerce, we don’t want our music — or the music we made together — to be on the same platform.”
The band’s music was back on Spotify as of Saturday, Billboard said. The three members have decided to donate streaming proceeds to the charities for the cause of the pandemic for at least a month as per the magazine. Crosby, Stills & Nash formed its folk-rock supergroup in 1968 and, one year later, Young joined them to form Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.
The band has been dormant since 2015 and, in recent years, members have been critical of one another. Past critical remarks, however, didn’t stop band members from coming together over their feelings on Rogan earlier this year.
