  •  Neil is 67 years old, a survivor of MAJOR (8+ / 0-)

    health problems such as a brain aneurysm in 2006,
    (the same type that killed my brother and business
    partner many years ago),
    and dealing heroically with a son Ben Young who was born quadriplegic.  He and his wife Pegi have been together, through tragedy, since 1977.

    I admire him VERY greatly.

    But mainly I just REALLY like this music, always have, amazed to see how much I like the 2012 stuff.

      someone from Omemee, Ontario, where Neil grew up. There's a movie called Neil Young's Journeys where he takes you back there and relives his boyhood, interspliced with scenes from an acoustic concert he gives.

      Looking forward to the new autobiography, which is on my Xmas list. Thanks for the heads-up about the CD.

        it, I predict.  It's said he spurned editors and ghost writers and wrote it all himself.  His father Scott Young was a famous Canadian sports writer and the author of 35 books (including Neil & Me, a wonderful book about Neil).  Writing is in the family.  I'm finding the book to be a delight to read.  But it's about 500 pages long, so I'm just getting into it.
