Graham Nash LIVE REVIEW: Hollies legend rocks debut solo Salford concert | Music | Entertainment

Nash acknowledges this almost apologetically in the first moments that he comes onstage at The Lowry Theatre for a sell-out homecoming show. For the faithful who followed the Hollies from their days in the pubs and clubs of Manchester and the North to their time as one of the UK’s best-selling record bands (before Nash disappeared into the California sun with David Crosby and Stephen Stills), there are plenty of moments for nostalgia – Nash’s voice, the diamond-sharp trademark it has always been, simply erases the decades as he rolls…

The title track, for instance, sounds like a typically lush Nashville breeze until Lauderdale’s vocal interrupts the flow, his slurring style practically channelling Mick Jagger’s phrasing on the Stones classic Time Is On My Side. Meanwhile, Where The Cars Go Fast, which…
