From Graham Nash—the legendary musician and founding member of the iconic bands Crosby, Stills & Nash and The Hollies—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 and 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 and rolled wherever music mattered. Now Graham is ready to tell his 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 Stephen Stills and David Crosby and reaching superstardom with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; and his enduring career as a solo musician and political activist.  Nash 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 Stones, Hendrix, Cass Elliot, 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.

Wild Tales

Great story, well told.

Note: the description said videos and music are included in this ebook - where is it and how do I check it out?

Wild Tales

Really enjoyed the book. Wonderful insight into a great career and his life and times, especially the Hollies and CSNY! Was VERY disappointed that the promised video and audio was NOT included (I use latest IOS and iBooks version so should work!).

Another heartfelt Nash Edition

Wild Tales captures Nash's life experience with honesty and clarity. The book's 3-star meandering focus and puppy-dog tone are balanced by the 5-star sincerity, heart and musical and social impact he's maintained over the course of his rich and wild life. I defy any reader not to love this guy by the conclusion of the book, which is a page-turner in the best sense.
