NPR Interview with Neil Young on "Prairie Wind"
An interesting interview on NPR Radio with Neil Young on "Prairie Wind".
NPR's Scott Simon discusses Neil's brain surgery, recording in Nashville, his father's recent death, and singing with Pegi among other topics.
Young wrote some of the songs on Prairie Wind in 15 or 20 minutes, he tells Scott Simon. "It doesn't take me very long when I get started. I just try to remain open."
There are two versions of the interview - short and long. If you have time, listen to the full, unedited interview. You can hear Neil expound on an ice machine in the background, his imitating Bob Dylan, and even Elliot Roberts asking to wrap it up.
