Graham Nash – om opløsningen af The Hollies og hvordan Crosby, Stills & Nash blev Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young19. oktober 2012
"I’d written a song called King Midas In Reverse. I thought it was pretty decent, and we made a pretty decent record out of it. It didn’t do so well commercially, and after that they started to not trust my musical direction. It all started to crumble after that song. At the time that I felt a pulling away from The Hollies, David came into my life and took up that slack."
"When we finished the first record, we realized two things: One, that we had a big hit on our hands, because everybody was just wiped on the floor with it, and two, that we would have to go on the road. Stephen played every instrument on that record except for the drums and the acoustic guitars that David and I played on our songs. He played bass, he played organ, he played lead guitar, he played rhythm guitar, he played everything. Captain Many Hands we called him.
"You can’t do that live. You need help. So who would we get to help? We talked to Hendrix, we talked to Stevie Winwood, we talked to a bunch of people who we thought might want to join. They didn’t want to do it. Ahmet [Ertegun] said to Stephen, ‘Hey man, maybe you should get Neil.’ Stephen is ready to strangle Ahmet, like, ‘Ahmet, I’ve just been through two years with this crazy fucker. What do you mean we gotta get him back?’ But Ahmet said, ‘Hey man, it might work, it might work."
