70-year-old Graham Nash has spent the vast majority of his life as a musician, and now that he’s inked a deal with Crown Archetype he’ll get to tell that story in print form.
Nash and Crown Archetype, an imprint of Random House’s Crown Publishing Group, made the announcement yesterday. The book is currently untitled, but is expected to hit shelves in the fall of 2013.
Nash promises that the memoir will pull no punches, and will be an accurate depiction of his life spent in rock n’ roll — the good and the bad.
On meeting with the publishers, Nash said, “I’ve been as honest as I can be. If they asked me a question about drugs, I answered them. You ask me a question, you’re going to get an answer. Whether you like the answer or not is your problem, but you’ll get an answer.”
He continued, “I’ve had an incredible ringside seat to the last 50-odd years of rock & roll. I think people will be very interested to know what the British Invasion was like, what Woodstock was like, what my friends are like, what trouble we got into, what heights we scaled. I think they’ll be interested in all of it.”
The book deal is reportedly worth 7-figures.
