Sue Baker's view...

If you check out The Hollies website there is a fascinating “genealogical” chart which shows the beginnings of The Hollies with Graham Nash’s pairing with Allan Clarke through various names as they became established, a long hard slog to the first big hits. Graham Nash is good on these early days, the working class upbringing a thousand miles from where he is today. Then came the split and the move to America and composing and performing with CSN & Young. A long career that has taken in the cheerful rock of The Hollies and the grander ambitions of CSN & Y, written with candour Graham Nash reveals his Wild Tales.

Synopsis

Wild Tales by Graham Nash

Wild Tales by Graham Nash - a classic rock memoir of the legendary Hollies front man and member of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. In this candid and riveting autobiography Graham Nash tells it all: the love, the sex, the jealousy, the drugs, and the magical music-making. This is one of the great rock and roll stories: growing up in poverty in postwar Manchester, where Nash founded the Hollies with schoolfriend Allan Clarke and the incredible success that followed, friendships with all the great British bands of the 60s including the Beatles, the Stones and the Kinks, decamping to America and becoming the lover of Joni Mitchell (for whom he wrote 'Our House') and achieving superstardom with David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Neil Young. This book will be adored by Graham Nash fans and takes its rightful place in the pantheon of classic music memoirs alongside Book Dylan's Chronicles, Keith Richards' Life and Neil Young's Waging Heavy Peace. Graham Nash was born in Blackpool in 1942 and brought up in Salford. He was cofounder with his schoolfriend Allan Clarke of the Hollies - one of the most successful British pop groups of the 1960s for whom he was lead-singer and one of the principal songwriters. In 1968 he left the UK to live in California, where he became part of the supergroup Crosby, Stills & Nash (later, after Neil Young joined, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young). Unusually he has been inducted twice into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, for the Hollies and for CSNY, and in 2010 he received the OBE. He is noted for his political and charity work (he played Occupy Wall Street in 2011), is a serious photographer, and has homes in California and Hawaii.

A fascinating memoir tells of life on the other side of the ampersand... optimistic, charming and terribly British - Mojo

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
