By The Side of a Northern Sea
Graham Nash was born in Blackpool, Lancashire,
England, on 2 February 1942, during World War II. In the early 1960s he 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. Nash was pivotal in the forging of a sound and lyrics showing an obvious hippie influence on The Hollies'
album 'Butterfly' a collection that brought differing opinions concerning the band's musical direction to the fore.
