David Crosby and Stephen Stills have joined their Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young bandmates in demanding that their music be pulled from Spotify in protest against misinformation spread about Covid vaccines on the streaming service.
It was Neil Young who first made such a request to his management team and record label last month, accusing podcaster Joe Rogan of spreading misinformation about the Covid vaccine.
Spotify agreed to remove his music from its platform.
Graham Nash followed suit this week, seeking the removal of his solo recordings from Spotify.
The remaining two bandmates joined them on Wednesday.
Expressing solidarity with Young, all the CSNY members issued a joint statement urging their labels to remove the band catalog from Spotify along with their solo works.
“We support Neil and we agree with him that there is dangerous disinformation being aired on Spotify’s Joe Rogan podcast. While we always value alternate points of view, knowingly spreading disinformation during this global pandemic has deadly consequences. 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,” the statement says.
