Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: The Hollies

Graham Nash of the Hollies told me that they wrote “Stop Stop Stop” in a taxicab. They were told to Stop Stop Stop playing in Milwaukee when they were here in 1966. They’ll explain why. Allen Clarke tells how the group got started in 1962, how they decided on their name, and where their unique sound came from. You can view the outtakes from this interview here. The photo was taken backstage and includes two members of local group “The Skunks,” Jack Tappy, and Paul Edwards.
