Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Neil Young has been described as brilliant, cantankerous, enigmatic, and vexing. Regardless, his generation-spanning fan base and his profound musical influence cannot be denied. While a number of narrative titles have chronicled Neil Young in one manner or another, this is the first illustrated history to span his 41 studio albums, 6 live releases, and 40-plus years as a recording and touring musician. From Young's earliest days in the Canadian rock scene through his tenures with Buffalo Springfield and CSNY and on to his varied solo career, each aspect of the musician's career is covered. Photography from rock photographers of the 1960s to the present, as well as concert posters and memorabilia from around the world, are complemented by commentary from notable musicians around the world and a discography.

While a number of narrative titles have chronicled Neil Young in one manner or another, this is the first illustrated history to span his 43 studio albums, 7 live releases, and 40-plus years as a recording and touring musician.

Synopsis:

Since his first recordings with Buffalo Springfield in 1967, Neil Young has been described as brilliant, cantankerous, confounding, ruthless, mercurial, and vexing. Regardless, his profound musical influence and his status as a critical favorite cannot be denied. Now the first illustrated biography to span Young’s 40-plus years as a recording and touring musician (and nearly as many forays into divergent musical genres, some wags might say), is updated through 2012.
 
From Young’s earliest days in the Canadian folk and rock scenes through his tenures with Buffalo Springfield and CSN&Y and on to his varied solo career backed by bands including the Stray Gators, the Ducks, the Bluenotes, Booker T. & the MGs, Pearl Jam, and, of course, Crazy Horse, every aspect of Young’s long and varied career is covered. The book features the work of rock photographers from the 1960s to the present, as well as concert posters and ephemera from around the world, including picture sleeves, LPs, ticket stubs, pins, T-shirts, backstage passes, and more. Notable musicians from around the world chip in with commentary, and the book is further complemented with a discography and sidebars examining topics like Young’s involvement with Lionel toy trains (of which he is a part owner), Farm Aid, and San Francisco’s Bridge School.

Synopsis:

Neil Young has been described as brilliant, confounding, ruthless, mercurial, and enigmatic. Here is the book that dares to document his legacy.

Offering visual and critical tribute to the man and his music, this completely illustrated biography overflows with more than 400 photographs and collectibles, including rare posters, 7-inch picture sleeves, backstage passes, and ticket stubs. Veteran music journalists Daniel Durchholz and Gary Graff trace Young’s life from his Canadian boyhood to his latest releases, offering exclusive commentary from admiring musicians and a discography that spans sixty-plus albums.

The result is a visually stunning portrait of an artist whose profound musical influence cannot be denied.
