With Neil Young's 70th birthday coming up next week on November 12, what better way to celebrate than to immerse oneself into a richly detailed tribute to that little musical giant of a man -- Neil Young.
We just finished perusing over author Harvey Kubernik's new book "Neil Young: Heart of Gold" which spans more than 50 years of Neil Young's career in making rock music history. From Buffalo Springfield, collaborations with Crosby, Stills & Nash, his solo years starting in the late 1960s, and subsequent tours and albums as a singer-songwriter, Kubernik covers Neil's uniquely shifting musical styles over five decades, including rock, punk, electro-pop, and the retro vision of Americana.
Kubernik, explores every aspect of Young's remarkable life and career with exclusive interviews with fellow musicians, record producers, engineers, music journalists, film directors, and loyal fans combine with a wealth of photographs, many previously unpublished, to create a unique tribute to a true rock legend. In addition, there is a complete discography, and photographs and memorabilia from throughout his career.
Among those featured are musicians Randy Bachman, Graham Nash, Clem Burke, Nils Lofgren, Peter Lewis, Don Randi, Rick Rosas, Chris Darrow, Jim Keltner, Steve Wynn, Ian Hunter, Jonathan Wilson, Robbie Robertson, Bill Mumy, Dan Kessel, Howard Kaylan and Richie Furay; filmmakers Jim Jarmusch and Stanley Dorfman; record producers Denny Bruce, Kim Fowley, Elliot Mazer, Jack Nitzsche, and Niko Bolas; sound engineers Stan Ross and Bill Halverson; artist managers/producers and promoters Brian Stone, Bill Graham and Andrew Loog Oldham; and photographers Henry Diltz and Nurit Wilde, in addition to previous Young chroniclers from Canada, America and England, along with many more contributor voices.
The book references Rusties such as Sharry Wilson and her seminal research "Young Neil: The Sugar Mountain Years".
Neil Young: Heart of Gold is yet another essential volume for Neil Young library and a very timely celebration.
