Stills will be accompanied by longtime CSN bandmates Kevin McCormick (bass) and Todd Caldwell (organ), with a new addition on drums, Mario Calire.
On April 5th, Stills and his wife Kristen hosted the 2nd Light Up The Blues Concert to benefit Autism Speaks in downtown Los Angeles at the newly restored Theatre @ the ACE. Proceeds from the sold out concert benefit Autism Speaks' research and advocacy efforts for families and individuals impacted by the disorder. Light Up the Blues, a documentary-style film recorded at last year's concert to benefit Autism Speaks is available now through iTunes
About STEPHEN STILLS: Stephen Stills is the only artist ever to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame two times in one night - in 1997, for Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, and Nash (CSN). One of rock music's most enduring figures, Stills is also a member of the Songwriter's Hall of Fame, a BMI Music Icon (with CSN), and has a career now spanning six decades, multiple solo works, and four hugely influential groups - Manassas and Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young (CSNY), in addition to Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills & Nash. As renowned for his instrumental virtuosity as for writing era-defining anthems including "For What It's Worth" and "Love The One You're With," Stills is ranked #28 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time, calling his acoustic picking on "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" "a paragon of unplugged beauty." Three of Stills' albums are among Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time: Buffalo Springfield Again, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Déjà Vu. In 2013, Stills released Carry On, a four-CD anthology produced by Graham Nash and Joel Bernstein, capturing the remarkable scope of his career using 83 tracks (25 unreleased) to retrace the musical paths he's explored. Most recently, Stills toured with The Rides, his blues-rock trio with Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Barry Goldberg behind their debut album Can't Get Enough. This year, he is on tour, solo and with Crosby, Stills & Nash.
