I wasnt thinking of the longevity of any of my songs, but I am extremely pleased with the lasting effect.
If I read or listened to critics of our music, I'd have been discouraged a long time ago. Graham Nas

I only do solo albums when songs are screaming at me to be let out of my mind.
Being in a different band always brings great musical experiences to be able to draw on.
One of the great things about rap music... it leaves a lot to be desired, as far as I'm concerned, musically, but I do recognize the very important place that it has in music and in creating role models for younger kids to emulate, giving them the dream that they can make it out of whatever situatio
Martin guitars have now brought out, you know, on a more traditional level, the Stephen Stills' model of Martin guitars. It's beautiful. I just went inside. I bought one immediately.

People like Beck and Shawn Colvin are some of the people I listen to lately. Graham Nash
I don't have to ask anyone's permission to do anything. It's nice not have to get decisions out of three, sometimes four people, which can be like pulling teeth. So the amount of control that I have over what I'm doing is better for me as a solo artist.
People like Beck and Shawn Colvin are some of the people I listen to lately. Graham Nas
The relationship with Atlantic Records was always a personal one. Our friend and mentor, Ahmet Ertegun, was our main contact at Atlantic and our relationship was based on mutual respect. He is a fine musician, singer and producer.

I'm trying to communicate here. I'm a communicator, I like to communicate, and if a million people buy it then we've touched a million people, if only 10 people buy it, then we've only touched 10, and that's important, because I'm satisfied with only 10. But, I love a million.

We only had enough money really to cut 10 things and be in there for a month because it's expensive, you know. And, singer/songwriters, today are lucky if they can get a deal, you know. So, we actually worked so fast that we really cut 20 things.
I'm curious about life, period.
This digital world is completely fascinating to me. Graham Nas
