YES, it IS Rock!
For those who question if this is "rock", rock music has always been a fairly broad category, including a wide variety of sounds and textures. This is what has kept the genre, as well as all other genres, alive and vibrant for several generations. And, hopefully, variety is what will keep it going forever. Remember, when the Rolling Stones did several songs with acoustic guitars and pedal steel guitars on their two greatest albums, Let It Bleed (1969) and Sticky Fingers (1971), they were still one of the greatest rock bands on Earth. No one decided they were a country band! And previously, when George Harrison and The Beatles wrote and recorded songs using traditional instruments from India, listen to Within You, Without You from Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967), Tomorrow Never Knows from Revolver (1966), and several others. They were still then and to this date (2011) considered the Greatest Rock Band of All Time. NEVER to be surpassed! We need to remember where "rock" music came from. First, there were Negro spiritual songs sung in the fields. Then, early Negro "gospel music". This developed into two branches, Religious music of the early 1900's and acoustic blues formed in the Mississippi Delta during the '30s, such as the works of Robert Johnson. By the '50s the blues became electric and the capitol was Chicago. By then, Elvis and a few other white people picked up on the music, popularized it, a famous radio DJ named Alan Freed termed it Rock and Roll, a term blues musicians previously used instead of the word "sex". The rest is history. In other words, this song by Crosby and Nash is, in fact, very closely linked to the original sound of early rock music. (listen to Robert Johnson, Bob Dylan, or any other acoustic based rock or blues and you can hear it.)
