From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Graham Nash (born 2 February 1942) is a British singer-songwriter.

Nash was born in Blackpool, England during World War II. In the early 1960s was a leading member of The Hollies, one of the UK's most successful pop groups ever. Although recognised as a key member of the group, he seldom sang lead vocals, although he did write many of the band's songs, most often in collaboration with Allan Clarke.

In 1968, after a visit to the USA during which he had been introduced to David Crosby in Laurel Canyon and had begun experimenting with drugs, Nash left The Hollies at the height of their fame, to form a new group with Crosby and Stephen Stills, Crosby, Stills & Nash. With them, he went on to even greater worldwide success.

In 1979, Nash cofounded Musicians United for Safe Energy.

Nash started collecting photographs in the 1970s, and eventually sold the bulk of his collection in 1990 to fund and co-found the creation of Nash Editions, a digital fine-arts lithographic firm that used some of the most advanced scanning and printing equipment in early days. The company continues to operate today.
