For the first time, legendary singer, songwriter, and guitarist Neil Young offers a kaleidoscopic view of his personal life and musical creativity. He tells of his childhood in Ontario, where his father instilled in him a love for the written word; his first brush with mortality when he contracted polio at the age of five; struggling to pay rent during his early days with the Squires; traveling the Canadian prairies in Mort, his 1948 Buick hearse; performing in a remote town as a polar bear prowled beneath the floorboards; leaving Canada on a whim in 1966 to pursue his musical dreams in the pot-filled boulevards and communal canyons of Los Angeles; the brief but influential life of Buffalo Springfield, which formed almost immediately after his arrival in California. He recounts their rapid rise to fame and ultimate break-up; going solo and overcoming his fear of singing alone; forming Crazy Horse and writing “Cinnamon Girl,” “Cowgirl in the Sand,” and “Down by the River” in one day while sick with the flu; joining Crosby, Stills & Nash, recording the landmark CSNY album, Déjà vu, and writing the song, “Ohio;” life at his secluded ranch in the redwoods of Northern California and the pot-filled jam sessions there; falling in love with his wife, Pegi, and the birth of his three children; and finally, finding the contemplative paradise of Hawaii. Astoundingly candid, witty, and as uncompromising and true as his music, Waging Heavy Peace is Neil Young’s journey as only he can tell it.

Synopsis:

From Neil Young, the iconic musician and New York Timesand#150;bestselling author of Waging Heavy Peace, a second installment of his memoirs.

Synopsis:

Neil Young--reflective, introspective, insightful, brutally honest--discusses his life and career. From his youth in Canada (where his father was a well-known journalist) to his first band's travels across the U.S. seeking fame (and girls), to his forming of the Buffalo Springfield, his massively successful solo career highlighted by After the Gold Rush, to his joining with Crosby, Stills & Nash, to his roll as one of the last uncompromised (and uncompromising) survivors of rock 'n' roll--this is Neil's tale. Told episodically, with great detail, and intermingling his current obsessions with musical sound quality and the environment with his recollections of the way things were, this is a memoir that will stand beside those of Bob Dylan and Keith Richards as exemplar of the genre.

This beautiful limited edition will be signed by Neil Young and repackaged in a slip case and linen cover. Only 1,500 copies will be printed, making it an essential addition to every music lover’s collection.

About the Author

NEIL YOUNG's music and songwriting-which span forty years and thirty-four studio albums of rock and roll, folk, and country, with shadings of blues, techno, and other styles-are among the most enduring and popular in modern times. From his early days with Buffalo Springfield through his solo career and collaborations with Crosby, Stills and Nash, Crazy Horse, and dozens of other notable musicians and groups, Young is acclaimed for both his musical talents and his artistic integrity. With a major hit in every decade since the sixties, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice. A well-known political activist, environmentalist, and philanthropist, Young has been involved in several causes, notably cofounding Farm Aid and the Bridge School, which assists children with physical impairments and communication needs.
