“I think I will have to use my time wisely and keep my thoughts straight if I am to succeed and deliver the cargo I so carefully have carried thus far to the outer reaches.”  --Neil Young, from Waging Heavy Peace
Legendary singer and songwriter Neil Young’s storied career has spanned over forty years and yielded some of the modern era’s most enduring music. Now for the first time ever, Young reflects upon his life—from his Canadian childhood, to his part in the sixties rock explosion with Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, through his later career with Crazy Horse and numerous private challenges. An instant classic, Waging Heavy Peace is as uncompromising and unforgettable as the man himself.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Great Book by a Great Musician
January 20th, 2015
This is a very non-convectional biography. Neil writes short chapters that take you back and forth through his time starting in Canada to the present. A great read.

Waging Heavy Peace
July 23rd, 2014
I've always enjoyed Neil Young as a musician and as a sixties icon who set his own agenda and didn't cave to record companies and the corporate agenda - however, his writing style is banal, disjointed, and laced with simple sentences. While, I enjoy reading about the creative process of songwriting with Stephen Stills and others, I'm less enamoured of his endless diatribes on his cars. It would have been better if he focused more on his songs and his role in the music industry and expressed himself better with some better vocabulary.
