Legendary singer-songwriter Graham Nash was born 72 years ago today. He told us to “love is the reason” he made it this far, so let’s show him some love!
The classic rocker has had an illustrious career – beginning with his time in The Hollies during the British Invasion.
Nash further made his mark on rock history by uniting with David Crosby of the Byrds and Stephen Stills of Buffalo Springfield fame in 1968 to form the iconic supergroup Crosby, Stills & Nash. The folk titans wrote and performed timeless hits like “Teach The Children,” “Marrakesh Express,” and “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,” and later added Neil Young to turn their trio into a quartet.
In the ‘70s, he also had a string of successful records on which he partnered solely with Crosby to form Crosby & Nash.
Nash is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, first with The Hollies in 2010 and again with Crosby, Stills & Nash in 1997. In 2009, Nash was also inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
In addition to his music career, he also published a successful autobiography last fall titled Wild Tales: A Rock & Roll Life.
According to his official website, Crosby, Stills & Nash will tour the U.S. for a number of concerts this spring, beginning March 4 in Virginia. Not only will the trio perform from their collective works, but Nash and the rest of the group will have the opportunity to show off new solo material as well.
Though he once sang “Just a Song Before I Go” with Crosby, Stills and Nash, we have a feeling that Graham Nash will continue to rock for a long time to come.
