Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young performed at Woodstock, and it was only their second gig together. Drummer Dallas Taylor stated that the band was not well-rehearsed, and Neil Young skipped most of the acoustic part of their set.

In addition, Young refused to be filmed for the electric performance, and he went as far as to threaten the cameramen. Young said about Woodstock, “Woodstock was a bulls**t gig. We played awful. No one was into the music.”
