Recently Read: Neil Young, Waging Heavy Peace
I dont know if I expected more or less from this book, but it beat my expectations. I have always loved Neil’s music, but this rambling book made me realize why: the man is almost embarrassingly honest. From addressing and thanking dead (and living) friends for the impact on their lives, to talking about the music he is listening to, his candor is endearing — even to the point of admitting that he wrote the book for the money. He discusses his financial hardships, drug use, and the times he has been hard to work with, all with a plainspoken delivery. Loved that the book wasn’t chronological either — kept me reading to find out what era was coming next. I have read better autobiographies before, but few have been so geniune.
