A nice perceptive book review of 'Waging Heavy Peace' by Neil Young on LikeTheDew.com "The Book On Neil Young: You Gotta Tell Your Story Boy" by Jeff Cochran:
Some things never change
They stay the way they are
-Neil Young, from “Opera Star,” 1981
Some people never change, but don’t count Neil Young among them. To both the delight and consternation of his fans, particularly over the last three decades, there’s been much about Young’s career that has screamed change. If one liked his most recent album at any given time, it was a sure bet one wouldn’t think as fondly of his next album. Neil Young would be into something else. He has been – and is – into a lot of things.
Readers of his new memoir, Waging Heavy Peace, will learn a lot -perhaps more than they ever wanted -about what inspires and moves Neil Young. They’re also likely to feel frustrated with what they thought would be a standard autobiography. For example, he devotes more space to Pono, the audio system he’s developing (to “save the sound of music”) than he does to his brain surgery and subsequent close call with death. But despite the book’s curious passages, readers should also come away newly impressed with the storyteller.
There is nothing standard about Neil Young.
