1968 - Das Jahr des Erwachens

Sergeant Pepper had done a good job: The pop music that followed in 1968 ignited a firework of new styles and genres, the effects of which can still be felt today. All this unfolded against the background of enormous political and social upheavals. The peaceful utopias that had made the hippies the leading force of the younger generation in the previous year seemed to have worn off and overtaken each other in a very short time. A look back at a musical year that became a symbol.

GRAHAM NASH - Two divorces at once

The news comes unexpectedly - and has something of a drumbeat: At the beginning of March Graham Nash announces the end of his friendship with David Crosby and the end of Crosby, Stills & Nash (and sometimes Young). After forty-eight years, fourteen albums and seventy million sold records, the great old men of folk rock have finally quarreled. What Nash, whom eclipsed meets shortly afterwards in Berlin, does not actually want to discuss, but does. His first solo album in fourteen years finally dealt with a further separation. He can hardly avoid the subject.
