However, Stills suggested that there were other problems with the sessions and he was pessimistic about the chances of ever releasing anything new. Graham Nash has now revealed that there had been problems in the studio, specifically with producer Rick Rubin, but he does believe that the album will be finished.
Nash tells Music Radar: "Two things are happening. One, Stephen doesn’t know the big picture. Two, Stephen is very deaf. He may have misheard or he may have been answering the question he thought you asked.
"Crosby, Stills and Nash will do another record. We’re right in the middle of one, Songs We Wish We’d Written.”
Nash says: "After almost 50 years of making records, we think we know what we’re doing, so it’s very hard to tell Crosby, Stills and Nash what to do. You can suggest anything you want, but you can’t tell us what to do.
"First of all, he pissed off David Crosby. David said we wanted to do Blackbird and another Beatles song. Rick said, ‘There will only be one Beatles song.’ Crosby said, ‘There will only be one Beatles song if we decide there will only be one Beatles song.’ You know, like, ‘Who the f*** are you to tell me?’
"You can’t tell us what to do. Rick is a brilliant man - but we rubbed each other the wrong way. Where’s the heart? It wasn’t there. I mean, who the f*** is Rick Rubin? I know he’s sold millions of records, but who the f*** is he to tell Crosby, Stills and Nash what to do?
"Guide us, yes. Make suggestions, fantastic. ‘Try it this way,’ no problem. But don’t tell us what to do. You can’t.”
