It was 43 years ago today (May 14th, 1970) that Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (CSNY) released their single “Ohio” as a tribute to four students killed by National Guardsmen on May 4th, 1970 during anti-war protests at Ohio’s Kent State University.
David Crosby and Neil Young were together in the days following the shootings, and were both distraught over the senseless killings and found themselves discussing, arguing, and replaying the tragic events, until Young took a guitar and sat alone and composed “Ohio.” The song, which was recorded right away, was rush-released only ten days after the shootings.

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, who’s beginning the trip back to Earth today (May 13th) after spending five months at the International Space Station, marked his imminent departure by doing an in-orbit cover of David Bowie’s classic song, “Space Oddity” — probably familiar to more people as the “Major Tom” song.
The song was mixed with the help of staff at the Canadian Space Agency and others, and features lyrics that were modified to refer to the Soyuz capsule that will return Hadfield to Earth.
John Fogerty sat in with the Rolling Stones for a bit at their concert Wednesday night in San Jose, CA.
