ABOUT GRAHAM NASH:  Graham Nash is a two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee — once with Crosby, Stills & Nash and once with The Hollies.  He was also inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame twice — both as a Solo Artist and with CSN.  And, he is a Grammy® Award Winner.  In 2010, Nash was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) respectfully referred to as a "Sir" by Queen Elizabeth II for his contributions as a Musician and Philanthropist.  Graham prefers to be referred to as "Graham." An activist for social and environmental justice, he is also an artist, acclaimed Photographer and Photography Collector.  His company Nash Editions’ original IRIS 3047 digital printer is on display in the National Museum of American History at the Smithsonian Institution in recognition revolutionary accomplishments in the fine arts Digital Printing world.  He lives in Hawaii with his wife, Susan.

ABOUT WILD TALES: A ROCK & ROLL LIFE:  From Graham Nash — the legendary musician and founding member of the iconic bands Crosby, Stills & Nash and The Hollies (Named in Honor of Buddy Holly) — comes a candid and riveting Autobiography that belongs on the reading list of every classic rock fan.  Graham Nash's songs defined a generation and helped shape the history of Rock & Roll — he’s written over 200 Songs, including such classic hits as "Carrie Anne," “On A Carousel,” "Simple Man," "Our House," “Marrakesh Express,” and "Teach Your Children."  From the opening salvos of the British Rock Revolution to the last shudders of Woodstock, he has Rocked & Rolled wherever music mattered.  Now Graham is ready to tell his Life Story: his lower-class childhood in post-war England, his early days in the British Invasion group The Hollies; becoming the lover and muse of Joni Mitchell during the halcyon years, when both produced their most introspective and important work; meeting David Crosby & Stephen Stills and reaching superstardom with Crosby, Stills, & Nash, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; and his enduring career as a solo musician and political activist.  Graham has valuable insights into a world and time many think they know from the outside but few have experienced at its epicenter, and equally wonderful anecdotes about the people around him: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Cass Elliot, Bob Dylan, and other rock luminaries.  From London to Laurel Canyon and beyond, Wild Tales is a revealing look back at an extraordinary Life—with all the highs and the lows; the love, the sex, and the jealousy; the politics; the drugs; the insanity—and the sanity—of a magical era of music.
