I suppose if possible I would give the book 2 12 stars but mostly because of the era described and certainly not for Graham s writing As someone else noted on Goodreads I actually think I like Graham Nash less now after reading his book At times severely sanctimonious yes he did drugs and cheated on his wives but others did far drugs and cheated times and almost always self aggrandizing Graham Nash seems to think every event in his life was deserving of him immediately putting his pen to paper so we would be fortunate enough to get his thoughts And woe is the critic or so called critic as described by GN who doesn t give Graham Nash a glowing review In one particularly odious passage GN bashes the Rolling Stone critic by saying a trained monkey might have brought to the game and that the review lacked insight and any kind of value for the reader Wow sensitive much I can t help but think an authorized autobiography would have been so much better for both GN and the reader If nothing else someone could have told GN how laughable the phrase I dug the bread we were making about an 80 s tour really was We get it you are still a true hippie You re really groovy manbut sorry I just didn t dig it

As a long time fan of Graham Nash s work first with The Hollies and then as part of Crosby Stills Nash and sometimes Young I came to the reading of Wild Tales A Rock Roll Life with a bit of apprehension Would it be another self indulgent memoir from an aging rocker Regrettably it is Would it offer wise counsel to would be rockers from the current generation Sadly very littleWould it shed light on the reasons for the spotty output of music in the post Deja Vu era Yes it does Will I have to ignore the unnecessary use of far beyond salty language Yes and then some While I appreciated aspects of the book it probably would be far satisfying as an audiobook for its 300 pages strike this reader as having been spoken into a recorder transcribed and re assembled as a manuscript From a literary point of view it s uite a disappointment And how many times do we need to hear about CSN member David Crosby s sores from his rampant drug useGraham Nash wrote some of the most beautiful songs in the CSN corpus Our House Just a Song Before I Go and Cathedral among others But this book does not live up to his reputation as a songwriter of substance and grace
