Still a class act - 40 years on

It's no surprise that Graham Nash should have become a quarter of the close-harmony super-group Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. For as a founder member of the Hollies, Nash had already been sharing in those sensational harmonies as they racked up hit after hit.

And 40 years on, the band he left behind are still producing that great sound - having become something of a super-group themselves. For their line-up now includes Ray Stiles, formerly of glam rock chart-toppers Mud and they are fronted by Carl Wayne, former lead singer with The Move. 

So it was appropriate that a sell-out and cheering Theatre Royal should have been treated to The Move's Fire Brigade and Blackberry Way and Mud's Tiger Feet alongside over twenty of the Hollies' finest - ending, of course, with their anthem, He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother. A new song for their 40th Anniversary is called How Do I Survive? The answer is simple: They're a class act.
