Brian "Nasher" Nash (born 20 May 1963, Liverpool) is a British musician. He was the guitarist for the 1980s band, Frankie Goes to Hollywood.[1]

Nash was an electrician when he formed the band "Sons And Egypt" with Peter Gill and Holly Johnson.[2] In 1980, Gill and Johnson left the band to form Frankie Goes to Hollywood, and Nash joined later. The group's first single, "Relax" reached No 1 on the UK Singles Chart in 1984. The group disbanded in 1987 after Johnson's departure.[citation needed]

Nash released a solo album, Ripe, in 1999. He has released a second album, Le Grande Fromage in 2002. He declined to take part in a 2004 Frankie reunion.[3]

Nash later agreed to a reunion when VH1's TV show Bands Reunited approached him. The band reunited but would not perform together. Former Lead Singer Holly Johnson refused to perform. In 2010 he released his third album, A Lo Minimo and is currently working on a new album "Four on the Floor". Nash recorded a version of "You'll Never Walk Alone" at his father's funeral service in July 2009.[citation needed]
