Graham Nash has written a new song about Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young. Nash will release his latest solo set, titled Now, on May 19th, which marks his first new music since David Crosby's death this past January 18th.
Nash spoke about the new song "I Watched It All Come Down," telling Variety, "It was about my emotional feelings toward Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. I reached incredible heights musically with them, and the opposite has been true with them, too — saddened that we didn’t make more music. We do, though, know that the music we did make is the most important part of our relationship. So this is about the thrill of having made music with David, Stephen (Stills) and Neil (Young). I wish it could have continued."
Graham Nash, whose been writing songs for over six decades now, still finds the process both familiar and mysterious: ["The truth is I'll find out what I already know. Y'know, we don't know what it is. I have no idea how it happens. I'm glad that it does, and for songwriters it's quite simple — you wake up in the morning, and you deal with your day, and the stuff that affects you, you write about it. I mean, I must've saved myself millions of dollars in psychiatry fees."] SOUNDCUE (:19 OC: . . . psychiatry fees)
Graham Nash performs tonight and tomorrow (April 18th and 19th) in Alexandria, Virginia at The Birchmere.
