#63 - Allan Clarke of The Hollies (Interview Show)

Allan Clarke, the original and longtime leader singer of The Hollies, chats to Tom about his incredible career and life. In this wide ranging interview, he reveals The Hollies' relationship with The Beatles, how he felt about Graham Nash leaving the band to form Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, and how Elton John Band legends Nigel Olsson and Dee Murray came to play with him in the studio for an Allan Clarke solo album. NB - This episode was originally recorded as part of Tom's Greatest Music of All Time Podcast, which organically evolved from its inception in early 2020, from a focus on the discussion of music to also exploring pop culture, comedy, entertainment, entrepreneurship, philosophy, science, politics and current affairs commentary. It was renamed as the Tom Cridland Podcast in January 2023.
