What do Neil Young, Malcolm Young and Lester Young have in common?
They all were huge fans of and heavily influenced by
Originally formed in 1964 in the deserts of Zuni Pueblo, New Mexico,
The Still's revolutionary minimalist style of reducing music to it's purest
until left with raw, palpable emotion brought them adoration far beyond cult
status among the band's fans and peers and led to pianist Glenn Gould's
famous and often repeated qoute: "The Still is the essence of music".
It is believed that the release of the The Still's first album led to a substantial growth in world population.
In the last four decades the band was the inspiration of other musical
milestones such as Whitesnake's "In The Still Of The Night", the Scorpions'
"Still loving You" as well as John Cage's "4'33".
After a year-long spiritual retreat during which the band concentrated on
the traditional native american art of Zuni Pueblo pottery, the original line-up of Steve Heather, Derek Shirley and Rico Repotente are back to provide the unique musical experience that is The Still.
