Stills and Collins met in 1967 and dated for two years. Stills wrote and demoed his legendary love song to Collins right after he left Buffalo Springfield and before he joined CSN. Suite: Judy Blue Eyes is a five-section romantic epic brimming with heartfelt sincerity. The song has been ranked #418 in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time Poll.
Stills is known for his work with Buffalo Springfield, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and his solo work. In addition to “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,” Still is best known for the hits “For What It’s Worth” by Buffalo Springfield and “Love The One You’re With” from his solo debut, Stephen Stills. He’s a multi-instrumentalist, composer, and ranked #28 in Rolling Stone’s “The 100 Greatest Guitarists Of All Time.” He also has the added distinction of being the first artist to be inducted into the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame twice in one night (for his work with CSN and Buffalo Springfield).
Collins is known for her eclectic palette as a solo artist, melding folk, rock, classical and jazz into a singular aesthetic. She’s earned five Grammy® nominations including one in 2017 and one Grammy® win. Outside of music, Collins has published two memoirs, one novel and, in 1975, was nominated for an Academy® Award for the documentary Antonia: A Portrait of the Woman. Collins is also a lifelong activist.
