David Crosby & Graham Nash at Occupy Wall Street; Echoes of Woodstock

First came Willie Nel­son, Pete Seeger, and Arlo Guthrie, and now Cros­by & Nash (sans Stills). Play­ing yes­ter­day at Occu­py Wall Street, their short set includ­ed Mil­i­tary Mad­ness, What Are Their Names, They Want It All, Teach Your Chil­dren (above), and Long Time Gone, which they sang dur­ing their hey­day at Wood­stock more than 40 years ago. A long time gone, indeed.

All of this pro­vides a good excuse to post anoth­er favorite video of ours — CSN’s one-time band­mate Neil Young play­ing Ohio, a now canon­i­cal song from the protest move­ment song­book. The haunt­ing clip was record­ed live at Massey Hall in 1971, and appears on one of the fin­er acoustic gui­tar LPs.
