Default Simple Man, Graham Nash 1970

Graham Nash wrote this heartbreaker on June 7, 1970, just hours before his show with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young at the Fillmore East in New York City, where he performed it for the first time. The day before, he broke up with Joni Mitchell, whose life together he sang about in the 1970 CSN&Y track "Our House." It was devastating for Nash. "My whole world fell apart," he said.

Dedicated to all our heart-broken fellow men and women.
Time heals. Love is the greatest!!!
Hope, peace and love to all peoples!!!

Whew! Sad song, Rene! But great job on this!

The breakup between Joni Mitchell and Graham Nash was very sad. I can really hear the pain in that song.

Hi Glenn,
Truly a sad song.
And he was feeling this just before their concert.
What a moment to write this classic.
That's the blues.
Thank you, Glenn!
Rene
