Biography

Graham William Nash (OBE) (born 2 February 1942) is an English known primarily for his light tenor vocals and songwriting contributions in pop group The Hollies and band Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

Nash was born in Blackpool, England, during World War II. His mother was evacuated from the Nashes’ hometown of Salford (now in Greater Manchester ), where Graham grew up. In the early 1960s he was a leading member of The Hollies, one of the UK’s most successful pop groups ever. Although recognised as a key member of the group, he seldom sang lead vocals, although he did write many of the band’s songs, most often in collaboration with Allan Clarke. Best known in the US for their 1965 hit “Bus Stop”, the Hollies also scored with “Look Through Any Window” in 1965, “Stop, Stop, Stop” in 1966, “Carrianne”, and “On a Carousel ” in 1967, among others. Nash was pivotal in the forging of a sound and lyrics showing an obvious hippie influence on The Hollies’ album Butterfly, a collection that brought differing opinions on the band’s musical direction to the fore.

In 1968, after a visit to the US during which he met David Crosby in Laurel Canyon and began recreational drug use, Nash left The Hollies at the height of their fame to form a new group with Crosby and Stephen Stills.
