A helicopter with Graham Nash on board makes it way into South Philadelphia, headed  for the Spectrum Arena parking lot. Nash is wearing a white jump suit; he’s visible near the left window. I and a few other Spectrum Changeover crew members were asked to meet and escort him to the dressing rooms. When we approached him, he said, “I beat the fuckers [Crosby and Stills], they didn’t want to fly. Nash was extraordinarily friendly, posed for photos and signed items for us. The group arrived early for a sound check, sans David Crosby. © Roger Barone 2015.
