So Mr Young and me have history. Much of which is in this impressive slab of a book. Impressive because there's no attempt at a chronological run-through of his life. He starts now, goes back, meanders around and then brings us up-to-date. Sort of. In fact, the last chapter's terrifying, but I'll leave that for you to discover. And please do.
A lot of books by famous people are mere hagiographies. Neil Young is no saint, as he'd be the first to admit and he makes no attempt to portray himself as one in this entertaining glimpse of his very successful career, even though he is the devoted father of two severely disabled sons. He references Bob Dylan a few times and it's probably Dylan's book 'Chronicles Volume One' that comes closest to this book in terms of character and style. Just a man talking about his life in a voice that comes across as being honest and genuine. If you're a fan, then you can spend your money with confidence - you'll enjoy what you read. If you're not a fan, then this will be a very idiosyncratic book, full of stories and anecdotes of people and events that won't mean that much to you.Read more ›
This is a deeply yet absobing read, Neil has an amazing gift as a writer maybe learnt somewhat from his father who was an emminent writer way back.This is certainly no ordinary story but written from the heart,mind and experience in a way very few books of this type ever are.The years and music with Crazy Horse,Crosby,Nash and Stills, the amazing musicians he's worked with,his passion for railroads,his archives,his cars,oh I could go on and on about this book.You may not be a Neil Young fan but I can't believe anyone would not enjoy this wonderfull book.Very highly recommended indeed!
