Legendary singer-songwriter and guitarist Stephen Stills is the only artist ever to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame two times in one nightin 1997, for Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, and Nash (CSN). In 2011, Stills performed high-profile dates with both iconic acts, in addition to touring on his own. One of rock music's most enduring figures, Stills is also a member of the Songwriter's Hall of Fame, a BMI Music Icon (with CSN), and has a career now spanning six decades, multiple solo works, and four hugely influential groupsManassas and Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young (CSN&Y), in addition to the two already mentioned.

As renowned for his instrumental virtuosity as for writing era-defining anthems including "For What It's Worth" and "Love The One You're With," Stills is ranked #28 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. They noted, "in Springfield and CSN&Y, Stills challenged and complemented Young's feral breaks with a country-inflected chime. And a continuing highlight of CSN&Y shows is Stills' acoustic picking in Suite: Judy Blue Eyes' a paragon of unplugged beauty." Three of Stills' albums are also among Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time: Buffalo Springfield Again, Crosby, Stills & Nash (on which he played almost every instrument) and Dj Vu.
