Graham Nash has struck a deal with Random House's Crown Archetype for an upcoming memoir, reports the New York Times. The former Hollies member and partial namesake behind Crosby, Stills and Nash (and sometimes Young) recently met with publishers in New York to discuss the memoir. "They were all more than kind to me," he said, laughing. "But it was the people at Crown and Random House who gave me over seven figures."

Nash plans to start his tale with his childhood in Salford, England, and will be totally open about his life and career. "I've been as honest as I can be. If they asked me a question about drugs, I answered them," he says of his meetings with the publishers. "You ask me a question, you’re going to get an answer. Whether you like the answer or not is your problem, but you’ll get an answer."

The untitled memoir is set for a Fall 2013 release. "I’ve had an incredible ringside seat to the last 50-odd years of rock & roll," said Nash. "I think people will be very interested to know what the British Invasion was like, what Woodstock was like, what my friends are like, what trouble we got into, what heights we scaled. I think they'll be interested in all of it."

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
