Biography

14 August 1946, Beaumont, Texas, USA. Graham moved to Oakland, California while still a child and by his late teens had established a proficiency on several instruments. A member of the highly influential Sly And The Family Stone between 1967 and 1972, he was one of the pioneers of the slap-pop style of electric bass that was to become prevalent in modern funk bands. He left Sly And The Family Stone to form Graham Central Station, one of the era’s most popular funk bands. In 1980, he embarked on a solo career which opened successfully with ‘One In A Million You’, a US Top 10 hit. The singer enjoyed R&B hits with ‘When We Get Married’ (1980) and ‘Just Be My Lady’ (1981), while his last chart entry was ‘If You Need My Love Tonight’, a 1987 duet with Aretha Franklin. At the end of the 90s, Graham revived the Graham Central Station moniker for a new studio album.
