Well, this is very interesting. Rolling Stone:
In an interview with Music Radar, Graham Nash revealed that the recent Crosby, Stills and Nash recording sessions with legendary producer Rick Rubin were “not a great experience.”
“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,” said Nash. “You can suggest anything you want, but you can’t tell us what to do.”...
Nash described the Rubin sessions as “irritable” from the start. He recalled a particular flare-up between Rubin and David Crosby over how many Beatles songs would be included on the record: “Rick said, ‘There will only be one Beatles song,”’ recalled Nash. “Crosby said to him, ‘There’ll only be one Beatles song if we decide there will be one Beatles song.’ You know, like, ‘Who the fuck are you to tell me…’”
