Published Jun 21, 2012Graham Nash has been in the music business for a good 50 years, and now the songwriter, known for his work with the Hollies, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and as a solo artist, will be telling his fans all about it with a new memoir. The as-yet-untitled tome is due out in fall 2013 via the Random House/Crown Publishing Group imprint Crown Archetype Books.
The book will cover Nash's childhood and lift the lid on his time in the spotlight. He told the New York Times, "I've had an incredible ringside seat to the last 50-odd years of rock'n'roll. I think people will be very interested to know what the British Invasion was like, what Woodstock was like, what my friends are like, what trouble we got into, what heights we scaled. I think they'll be interested in all of it."
This means Nash will most likely be talking about everything from his friendship with the Beatles to exposing the sordid details of his drug use. "I've been as honest as I can be," he said in regards to his recent talks with publishers. "If they ask me a question about drugs, I answered them. You ask me a question, you're going to get an answer. Whether your like the answer or not is your problem, but you'll get an answer."
So what eventually led him to sign with Crown Archetype? "They were all more than kind to me," he said in regards to his meetings with publishers, "but it was the people at Crown and Random House who gave me over seven figures."
Look for the book to arrive next year, and if you happen to be in the U.S., catch Crosby, Stills & Nash on tour this summer. See the schedule here.
