This segment, from Nov. 1 is part of our Best Of 2013 series, in which we revisit some of our most memorable interviews and performances of the year.

Graham Nash proves himself an entrancing storyteller throughout today's episode of World Cafe, on which the Englishman talks with host David Dye about his new autobiography, Wild Tales: A Rock & Roll Life. The events in the book recall the musician's life while growing up poor in Manchester, England, and takes readers through Nash's journey to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with both The Hollies and Crosby, Stills & Nash.

The singer-songwriter also discusses meeting his childhood friend Allan Clarke, and reflects on their life-changing encounter with The Everly Brothers and the formation of The Hollies.
