In 1966, an aspiring singer-songwriter drove a battered funeral car 2000 miles from his native Canada to Los Angeles, California, to seek his fortune in the music business. Thirty-five years later, Neil Young is still going strong, the survivor of an astonishing career which has taken in Buffalo Springfield, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, numerous collaborations and 30-plus solo albums. Featuring new and previously unpublished interviews with close friends and musicians, this book provides new insights into Young's music, shedding fresh light on his family life, behind-the-scenes relationships and health problems. It also uncovers new facts about his friendship with murderer Charles Manson, and closely examines his schizophrenic 1980s output and musical return to form as Godfather of Grunge in the 1990s.
