Graham Nash In London

DC Editor Adam writes…


To mark the 50th anniversary of the first Crosby, Stills & Nash album (released May 1969), here's a self-guided tour through Graham Nash's London.

I'm posting this particularly for the folks on the Rock'n'Roll London Pub Walk with LIVE Music last light – we ended up discussing Graham Nash and Joni Mitchell. Thanks for joining me guys!



Nash, born in Blackpool, moved to London with his band The Hollies in 1963 when they signed to the Parlophone label.


Only The Beatles had more chart hits than The Hollies here in the UK.


Nash left the band in '68 and went on to found one of the first supergroups with David Crosby of The Byrds and Stephen Stills of Buffalo Springfield.


The first Crosby, Stills and Nash album was released on Atlantic on 29th May 1969.




Here's your self-guided tour of the London places where Nash lived, played and recorded. Have fun!






For those new to Mr Nash, here's a starter guide playlist…
