Nash has now spoken with Billboard about his rift with Crosby, and his feelings about the situation don’t seem to have softened at all.

“Right now, I don’t want anything to do with Crosby at all. It’s just that simple,” he tells Billboard. “In my world there will never, ever be a Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young record and there will never be another Crosby, Stills & Nash record or show.”

While he doesn’t go into specifics about his falling-out with his old band mate, Nash says, “I was letting Crosby be who he is. I let people play their hand in front of me, and I let him do it and then I make a decision.”

Speaking with Lust for Life, Nash complained that Crosby had “been awful to me these last two years.” He added, “I’ve been there and saved his f****** ass for 45 years — and he treats me like I’m dirt. You can’t do that to me. You can do it for a day or so, until I think you’re going to come around. But when it goes on longer, and I keep getting nasty emails from him, I’m done.”

On how he’s feeling about his rift with Crosby, Nash tells Billboard, “How can I not be sad? Look at the music we probably lost. How can I not be sad about that?”

Next month, Nash will be releasing his first solo album in 14 years, This Path Tonight, and he has tour dates lined up in support of the record in the U.S., Australia, the U.K. and Europe. In the years between the release of his previous album, 2002’s Songs for Survivors, and This Path Tonight, Graham has overseen a variety of archival projects focusing on the music of CSN and CSNY, and on the solo work of Crosby and Stephen Stills, but he’s ready for a change.

“The truth is, after being totally immersed in me and David and Stephen and Neil’s music, I’m done,” Graham tells Billboard. “I’ve had 10 years of it. Leave me the f*** alone. I need to concentrate on me now.”
