David Crosby, Stephen Stills request Spotify pull music from platform
The two join their Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young bandmates in opposing Joe Rogan's content
Two more rock legends have joined the Spotify boycott.
David Crosby and Stephen Stills have joined their Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young bandmates and asked that the platform remove their music.
The move was made in opposition to the coronavirus-related content published via Joe Rogan's podcast, which is exclusive to the streamer.
"We support Neil [Young] and we agree with him that there is dangerous disinformation being aired on Spotify's Joe Rogan podcast," Crosby, 80; Stills, 77; and Graham Nash, 80, said in a joint statement shared on Twitter on Wednesday.
Nash had already removed his music from Spotify.

"While we always value alternative points of view, knowingly spreading disinformation during this global pandemic has deadly consequences," the rockers continued. "Until real action is taken to show that a concern for humanity must be balanced with commerce, we don't want our music – or the music we made together – to be on the same platform."

Young was the first artist to pull his content from the streamer over the information in Rogan's podcast and was followed by several others, including Nash, in the days since.
Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young formed a supergroup together in the late 1960s and reunited a number of times throughout the following decade. Each of the performers has had successful solo careers.
