Crosby, Stills and Nash vs Rick Rubin

“After almost 50 years of making records, we think we know what we’re doing, so it’s very hard to tell Crosby, Stills and Nash what to do. You can suggest anything you want, but you can’t tell us what to do… Rick said, ‘There will only be one Beatles song. Crosby said to him, ‘There’ll only be one Beatles song if we decide there will be one Beatles song.’ You know, like, ‘Who the fuck are you to tell me…’… We felt like we had this guy who was telling us what to do all the time. I mean, who the fuck is Rick Rubin? I know he’s sold millions of records, but who the fuck is he to tell Crosby, Stills and Nash what to do? Guide us — yes. Make suggestions — fantastic. ‘Try it this way’ — no problem. But don’t tell us what to do. You can’t.”
