Graham Nash certainly keeps busy. He is a solo artist, a photographer, a painter, a partner in a major fine arts printing concern – and oh yeah – he’s been in some of popular music’s biggest and most influential bands – The Hollies and Crosby, Stills & Nash (and sometimes Young). He is currently on tour with Crosby and Stills -but he still took time earlier this week to stop by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland to do a presentation on his new book Eye to Eye. (Check out Ann’s July 7th post.)
I was fortunate enough to be able to speak briefly with Graham about his new book, and his new CD with David Crosby. Nash told me, “It’s a double album – me and David Crosby – my partner of course. Twenty songs – all brand new. I’ve never been one to brag about anything that we’ve done. But I must tell you that I’m incredibly proud of this record. I think it’s a great piece of work.”
The new release, titled simply Crosby-Nash, is the first release from the two Rock and Roll Hall of Famers in 28 years. It’s the fourth set as a duo. CPR member Jeff Pevar is featured on guitar, and Crosby’s son, James Raymond, plays keyboards on 15 of the cuts.
