Gretsch fans will note that longtime signature artist Stephen Stills is as busy as ever lately with solo concert dates, a slew of new releases and summer 2010 plans for a Crosby, Stills & Nash tour.

Recent releases from Stills include the 14-song Live at Shepherd’s Bush, which captures a career-spanning fall 2008 performance of solo and full-band sets in England, and Pieces, a collection of 15 unreleased recordings from the sessions for both early-’70s albums (Manassas and Down the Road) by Manassas, the group Stills formed with ex-Byrd Chris Hillman.

One of the rock, pop and folk world’s more astute Gretsch-slingers, Stills was honored with a Gretsch signature White Falcon™ model in 2000, meticulously modeled after his original White Falcon. Stills continues to rely on Gretsch both on the road and in the studio; in a recent review of a March 6 concert in Michigan, website Ann Arbor.com noted that Stills was in fine and fiery musical form on, among other instruments, “a gorgeous Gretsch hollow body.”

Stephen Stills spring 2010 U.S. tour dates, cities and venues are:

3.18 Los Angeles Music Box at the Fonda
3.20 Anaheim, Calif. Grove of Anaheim
3.21 Solana Beach, Calif. Belly Up Tavern
4.16 Live Oak, Fla. Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park
4.17 Miami Fillmore
