Rock Hall of Famer Stephen Stills set to play Cache Creek
BROOKS, Calif. – Stephen Stills is one of the most influential and enduring figures in rock and roll, and the only artist ever to be inducted twice in the same night into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame – for both The Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills & Nash. Stills' work spans four iconic groups (Manassas and Crosby Stills Nash &Young in addition to the two already mentioned) two era-defining anthems – "For What It's Worth" and "Love The One You're With" – and a rich canon of solo material. Fans of the artist can hear him perform some of these rock classics on Feb. 13 at Cache Creek Casino Resort’s Club 88 at 8 p.m.
Stills launched his illustrious solo career with 1970's “Stephen Stills,” of which allmusic.com's Bruce Eder wrote, "listening to this album three decades on, it's still a jaw-dropping experience.” Featuring all-star musical friends Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Rita Coolidge and others, the disc delivered the stone-cold Stills classic "Love The One You're With," one of the most important solo hits from any CSN&Y member. Solo highlights also include 1971's “Stephen Stills 2,” adding the classics "Change Partners," "Marianne" and "Know You Got to Run" to Stills' catalogue. Billboard Magazine wrote, "His spectacular vocal style coupled with outstanding lyrics and music make this a must for every pop music fan."
In 1975 Stills introduced "As I Come of Age," a poetic mid-tempo groove boasting harmonies from David Crosby and Graham Nash and Ringo Starr on drums, and '78's “Thoroughfare Gap” added another fan favorite with its title track. 1991's exquisitely spare “Stills Alone” prompted allmusic.com to write, "Stills has put out a spectacular solo effort in the true sense of the word."
Ranked #28 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time, Stills also has a trio of album masterpieces on their compendium of The 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time: “Buffalo Springfield Again,” “Crosby, Stills & Nash” and “Déjà Vu.” Still recording and touring as a solo artist 40 years later, Stephen Stills has become a Rock icon and his timeless music is remembered and enjoyed by a legion of fans spanning four decades.
