A Memoir of Life & CarsBook - 2014
In this follow-up to his memoir "Waging Heavy Peace" Neil Young Young has fashioned a work of reminiscences about his Canadian boyhood, his musical influences, his family, the rock 'n’'roll life, and one of his deepest, most ebullient passions: cars. Through the framework of the many vehicles he's collected and driven, Young explores his love for the well-crafted vintage automobile,and examines his newfound awareness of his hobby's negative environmental impact. He recounts the saga of Lincvolt, his specially modified electric car, and his efforts to demonstrate to lawmakers and consumers how viable non-gas-guzzling vehicles truly can be. Witty, eclectic, and wonderfully candid, this is an amalgam of memories, artwork, and political ponderings from one of the most genuine and enigmatic artists of our time. The son of sports journalist Scott Young, Neil Young was born in Toronto. From his early days with Buffalo Springfield through his solo career and collaborations with Crosby, Stills & Nash, Crazy Horse, and dozens of other musicians, Young is acclaimed for both his musical talents and his artistic integrity.
