CSNY’s Graham Nash Addresses Retirement Plans At 81

Having released his latest album, ‘Now,’ in May 2023, Graham Nash recently talked about the possibility of retiring. Despite approaching his 82nd birthday, the singer has no plan to stop yet, as he said on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs:

“I love what I do. That’s the thing, you know, don’t give up. I love what I do, you know, don’t let anybody stop you. If you have something that you love, get to it, do it! I can’t do anything about the past. You can’t buy a second of time. Even Bill Gates and [Mark] Zuckerberg can’t buy a second of time.”

The Singer’s Decades-Long Career Has New Works In Line

Nash achieved dual inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during his career: the first in 1997 as part of Crosby, Stills & Nash, and the second in 2010 with The Hollies. Additionally, in 2010, he was honored with an OBE for his noteworthy contributions to music.

Looking ahead to 2024, Nash is poised for another artistic chapter, marked by an Australian tour set to commence on March 1 in New Zealand. As indicated in the singer’s past interviews, there are also plans for the release of new songs in the coming years.

His Ongoing Career May Bring Along New Collaborations With Former Bandmates

At the beginning of 2023, the vocalist experienced the loss of his partner of almost six decades. With David Crosby’s passing, the Crosby, Stills & Nash trio came to an end. However, Graham is receptive to working with the surviving members of the band for forthcoming projects. In October, he conveyed this sentiment to Noise11:

“That would depend on the music. Right now, all three of us know that without David, it is never going to be the same, and no matter what we did, people would always miss Crosby, of course. Who knows? It all depends on the songs.”

He continued, “If Neil comes up to me like he did way back when we did that album in Miami with the boys. He says, ‘I’ve got three songs here, and I’ve got three of Stephen’s. What do you think and he played me the songs, and they were wonderful. My point is, if Neil or Stephen come up with songs that we need to do, we will try and figure it out.”
