Stephen Stills says that The Rides adhered to band ground rules


Stephen Stills is currently out on the road with his supergroup, the Rides featuring blues guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and Electric Flag keyboardist Barry Goldberg. Stills told us that he made sure that the trio avoided the pitfalls that seem to plague bands getting together from different environments to make music.

Stills explained the ground rules for a successful collaboration in the studio: "If we have one rule, besides 'be on time -- please' and 'quit early -- please,' is that all of those considerations and debates that bands have, can we dispense with that, please? And check your ego at the door. And we're gonna sit down and get in a circle and play. And it's going to evolve naturally. So, we recorded very, very old school. Analog tape -- two-inch tape. The amplifiers with top notch microphones on them and there's bleed and stuff, which can get problematical, but everything worked."
