Neil Young's first memoir, Waging Heavy Peace, was an international bestseller and critical sensation. The Wall Street Journal wrote that it was ';terrific: modest, honest, funny and frequently moving,' while The New York Times found it ';as charismatically off the wall as Mr. Young's records.' Now, in Special Deluxe, Young has fashioned a second work of extraordinary 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. With his ferocious devotion to clean energy, 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.Special Deluxe captures Young's singular lyrical, almost musical, voice. Witty, eclectic, and wonderfully candid, Special Deluxe is an unforgettable amalgam of memories and political ponderings from one of the most genuine and enigmatic artists of our time.

Desde sus primeros recuerdos en la estepa canadiense, al pinaculo de la gloria pasando por algunos infiernos, muy pocas santidades y muchas patologias: la narracion de una vida inenarrable. cidos, copas, escndalos, mujeres, acordes inextinguibles, desacuerdos Regresos, vueltas y revueltas sas son las claridades, pero qu hay detrs o debajo de las sombras?Neil Young es una leyenda en ejercicio, una figura clave del canon roquero desde los ya lejanos sesenta y adems un enigma.

Ese improbable experimento confesional es este libro: una voz cantante escrita de puo y letra (no hay fantasmas por medio) que nos presenta el calidoscpico panorama de una vida y una msica ejecutadas hasta la mdula, que nos conduce desde las nieves de Ontario a los edenes hawaianos pasando por las calles de Los ngeles en los albores de la gran turbulencia. Estamos, pues, ante el "e;relato definitivo"e; (tpico por una vez justificado) de un viaje obstinadamente inenarrable

Waging Heavy Peace A Hippie Dream

Author: Neil Young Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 06/06/2013

Waging Heavy Peace is the remarkable memoir of rock icon Neil Young Neil Young is a singular figure in the history of rock and pop culture in the last four decades, inducted not once but twice into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Reflective, insightful and disarmingly honest, Waging Heavy Peace is his long-awaited memoir. From his youth in Canada to his crazy journey out to California, through Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills & Nash, to his massively successful solo career and his re-emergence as the patron saint of grunge on to his role today as one of the last uncompromised and uncompromising survivors of rock 'n' roll - this is Neil's story told in his own words. Young presents a kaleidoscopic view of personal life and musical creativity; it's a journey that spans the snows of Ontario to the LSD-laden boulevards of 1966 Los Angeles to the contemplative paradise of Hawaii today. Along the way he writes about the music, the victims, the girls and the drugs; about his happy family life but also about the health problems he and his children have experienced; about guitars, cars and sound systems; about Canada and California and Hawaii. Candid, witty and revealing, this book takes its place beside the classic memoirs of Bob Dylan and Keith Richards. 'Wryly funny, deeply moving, painfully honest' Guardian 'He's talking to you, not at you, unravelling himself as well, and you don't want it to end . . . You see rock and roll history from the inside out, and in the present tense' Independent 'Young appears bounteous and joyful, a genuinely happy hippy . . . Unusually for a rock memoir, this one is almost completely angst-free' Sunday Times 'Dryly hilarious . . . poignant . . . Waging Heavy Peace shows that Young is still in full possession of that stubborn, brilliant, one-of-a-kind instrument' Rolling Stone 'A real treat . . . he writes openly and movingly abut the key figures in his life...you feel you know Young better for reading it' Metro

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, Dej 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.
