I'm not a great fan of CSNY, or even of Neil Young (owning Harvest on CD and no others doesn't qualify me, I fear) but this was intertesting. Seems Mr. NAsh has a new autobiography out. The interview contained interesting stuff about his relations with Neil Young. Seems he's a hard man to get along with, but we hear that a lot about the very famous, don't we.

It was a great interview. I have a very soft spot for Mr Nash. The book just joined my wish list on Amazon.

He was doing readings from this during CSN's recent tour. Sadly we had to miss the reading in Bath as we had an appointment in Bristol, to see CSN, the same night (Graham must have legged it from one to the other!) . I'm told the reading at Bath was excellent entertainment.  Cheesy

The book is already purchased and  hidden away somewhere as a Christmas present  Cheesy

I knew GN was English, but didn't know of his origins -- Salford, Greater MAnchester. And a hard early life, apparently.He still sounded perceptibly English, too.

Interesting little interview on Danny Baker on Radio 5 this morn. based on Baker playing tracks and asking what emotions they produced, e.g leaving the hollies, meeting neil young, splitting with Joni, muted response to first CSN album from other musicians etc.
About an hr in for listen again.
For those of you at Cropredy this yr, Nash is trying to get Graham Gouldman into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his songwriting.
