Crosby, Stills & Nash: Folk Rock Supergroup 4 Decades of Rolex

Crosby, Stills & Nash
Amazing Folk Rock Supergroup
with Rolex Keeping Their Time

Crosby, Stills & Nash is one of the most popular folk rock supergroups of all time, and as we will soon see, they have been wearing Rolex Submariner watches for four decades. They are pictured below in this first photo in 1969 just before they played Woodstock, and Stephen Stills (center) is wearing his trademark Rolex Submariner which you will see better later in this story.

Crosby, Stills and Nash are best known for their trademark sound which fuses magnificent vocal harmonies with amazing lyrics. All three band members have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and their music literally defended an era.

Judy Blue Eyes
Live at Woodstock 1969
Rolex Submariner

Crosby, Stills and Nash blew everybody's mind when they performed live at Woodstock in 1969, and their version of Judy Blue Eyes is just amazing!!!! As a matter of fact, Woodstock 1969 was the first time they ever performed together as a band.

Notice Stephen Stills sporting his trademark Rolex Submariner while giving this seminal performance at Woodstock in 1969!!!!. This is one of the best songs of all time!!!!

An interesting point is that in Judy Blue Eyes, Crosby, Stills and Nash sing the last chorus in Spanish, and they sing:

Que linda me la traiga Cuba,
La reina de la Mar Caribe.
Cielo sol no tiene sangre alli,
y que triste que no puedo vaya,
Oh va, oh va, va.

Translated from Spanish to English they are singing:

"Oh, what beauty Cuba brings me,
The queen of the Caribbean Sea,
Sunny Sky has no blood over there,
And how sad that I cannot go,
Oh go, oh go, go."

The band members from Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young came from 1960s rock bands, The Byrds, The Hollies and Buffalo Springfield. They introduced their first album in 1969 to critical acclaim.
