My Hero – Neil Young | Culturedeluxe
A quite substantial must read tribute from Culturedeluxe | My Hero – Neil Young by Kevin Burgess:
There was never any doubt in my mind. In a tabloid-driven world the idea of the hero seems so frivolous that the term is almost a throwaway remark embossed upon the least deserving of people for a variety of bizarre and frankly insane reasons. It’s all a part of the social decay of the modern zeitgeist I suppose. But for me, one man in modern history stands head and shoulders above all others. My hero. One Neil Percival Young. Always the troubadour, always the mutineer, often obtuse in the most pleasant of ways but ultimately, and most importantly, the one man on this entire planet who in my cynical eyes, embodies and protrudes the most primitive and primal of human ideals: soul.
Neil Young is soul personified.
