Quick Book Review: “Wild Tales: A Rock and Roll Life” by Graham Nash

"Wild Tales: A Rock and Roll Life" by Graham Nash

An excellent memoir.  Nash takes you through the heady, exciting times of his first band, The Hollies, through CSN, CSN&Y, and his solo career.  He talks about his deep friendship with Mama Cass, his many romances (including, of course, Joni Mitchell), detailed accounts of his good friendships with Stephen Stills and David Crosby, and his rocky one with Neil Young.  He spares no details in describing the horror show of David Crosby’s drug addiction.   The stories behind some of the specific songs are interesting, and I admire the many humanitarian causes he pursued later in his career.  A very candid account and an easy read.
