'Wild Tales' — Graham Nash

SCAN0113 copy

I bought this book used and only noticed the wonderful placement of the barcode sticker on the cover after I was well into it.

Rock star memoirs vary tremendously in readability — like all memoirs — and this one's in the top tier.

Nash was a founding member of the Hollies before leaving in 1968 to become part of the first supergroup, Crosby, Stills & Nash.

Anyone who reads this autobiography will not fail to be as amazed as I am that all four Crosby, Stills Nash & Young members are still alive (Crosby's 81 next Sunday; Stills is 77; Nash is 80; Young is 76).

Why?

Because of the (to me) almost unbelievable, nearly incomprehensible frequency of use of quantities and varieties of drugs (all of the best quality obtainable as money was no object) and alcohol over decades by all four principals.

I think David Cosby got a replacement liver as he had worn his original out. If not for that....... They are still one of my all time favorites.
