Graham Nash And Allan Clarke Of The Hollies Look Back On 63 Years Of Singing Together

Two of the more prominent members of the British group [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Hollies[/lastfm], Graham Nash and Allan Clarke reunited once again for the first time in over 40 years for their first live radio interview this morning right here on K-EARTH 101!

The two life-long friends have been singing and performing together since they were just five years old, and are taking an in-depth look back on their amazing career as one of the biggest British Invasion bands of the ’60s. The duo is premiering their fascinating documentary The Hollies: Look Back Through Any Window 1963-1975, which gives a look inside the band during their hey days, and both will be on site for the special screening tonight!

Graham Nash and Allan Clarke have perfected their gorgeous harmonies that made The Hollies such a distinctive act of the ’60s since they were just young boys.

When Gary asked about the harmonies in the vocals, Graham explained, “It was basically based on me and Allan’s voice. Allan and I have been singing together…since we were five.”

With such history together, the two prominent members of The Hollies continue to look forward on their music career and perform even to this day. The Hollies were recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010, and have created a special documentary on the long career of The Hollies.

The Hollies: Look Back Through Any Window 1963-1975 is screening tonight Sept. 22nd at the American Cinematheque at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica, and both Graham and Allan will be on site for a special Q&A after the movie. For more information and tickets, click here!

Gary talked to the music icons this morning about their incredible career, their first hand experience being part of the massive British Invasion in America, Graham leaving the group to join Crosby, Stills & Nash, plus having movie legend Meryl Streep sing their hit “Bus Stop” at their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony!

    63 years is a very L-O-O-O-N-G time to be friends. I have a friend who lives out in Vancouver B.C. now (he got married four years ago) and I had known him since childhood as well (having met him in Grade 3 I believe). Jude still lives there with his wife Susan, but I haven’t seen him nor heard from him since he left Toronto four years ago. I have been trying to get in touch with him again via Facebook, but so far no luck. Hearing this story makes me want to try again because I would like to see him again one day. I guess I will keep trying because it’s been a while since I last talked to him.

      Such a delight. Graham Nash and Allan Clarke have one of the two greatest friendships in musical history. The other? Graham and David Crosby….. *S*

  • Ouida

    I wish I had been on the West Coast to have gone and seen them. I love these guys especially Allan. They sound so caring for each other … I love the part were Allan says so sweetly to Graham “I forgive you”, Allan was truly hurt by his buddy leaving him to start up with others. Long life to them both.
