Eleanor Stills Solo Nash
"Just a song before I go
A lesson to be learned
Traveling twice the speed of sound
It's easy to get burned..."
If you're Graham Nash and your pedigree includes membership in rock's first, and still most formidable supergroup, Crosby, Stills, & Nash (and, better yet, Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young), it's only natural that you'd spend at least part of your time reflecting on the past.
After all, Nash's musical legacy stretches back a full five decades, dating from when he participated in the advance guard of the British Invasion with the Hollies. His credence and credibility were already elevated by contributions to hits like "Look Through Any Window," "Just One Look," and "Carrie Ann." Nash's ascent to superstardom was well underway even before he arrived on these shores and connected with David Crosby and Stephen Stills in the recesses of L.A.'s Laurel Canyon.
