Annotation

Using the framework of all the cars he's ever owned, the author talks about his life and career, exploring how memories are attached to objects.

Publisher Description

Quirky and candid, Neil Young's wildly-acclaimed book of reminiscences is as compelling as his first. He returns with more unforgettable stories about his six decades in the music business - and his wonderful lyrics - but this is not your average rock biography. He centres this new work on one of his life's passions, cars, using the framework of all the cars he's ever owned to construct a narrative of his life and career, exploring how memories are attached to objects.

Author Biography

A major hit in every decade since the Sixties, Neil Young's music and songwriting span forty years, and his 38 studio albums are among the most enduring and popular in modern times. Born and raised in Canada, long resident in California, he has, uniquely, been inducted twice into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He is also well-known as a political activist, environmentalist and philanthropist, co-founding Farm Aid and The Bridge School for educationally impaired children.

Review

Its biographical insights, career anecdotes and generous quotations from his lyrics make it an ideal present for Neil Young fans. And even those who don't know his work will find it endearingly wacky and oddly wise -- Blake Morrison Guardian Starting from his time in Omemee, Ontario, to the present day Special Deluxe relates the stories untold in Waging Heavy Peace Q Magazine Not your average rock-star autobiography .... Young is a natural obsessive and a bit cantankerous, which makes an interesting combination -- Richard Williams Guardian Waging Heavy Peace is as charismatically off the wall as Neil Young's records -- Janet Maslin New York Times
