Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young – “Ohio” (1970) Kent State University
Neil Young wrote and composed “Ohio” after seeing a picture of the Kent State University shootings of May 4, 1970. He performed it with his band mates David Crosby, Steven Stills and Graham Young. Crosby, Stills Nash and Young aka CSN&Y received critical acclaim for standing up to the Nixon Administration with their song. It was banned from some AM radio stations because of the challenge to the Nixon Administration in the lyrics. The video has some heavy duty photos from that incredibly painful day for America.
So not much in the way of “Soothing the Beast” this week but it’s an important song even to this day…Enjoy…DJPJ.
