There is a gallery of intimate Neil Young photos from the Buffalo Springfield days up to 2016 posted on Rollingstone.com.
The Photo of the Moment above is titled "Tea Time" with Neil Young and Ralph Molina in Redwood, CA in 2007 by photographer Danny Clinch. Clinch discusses the photo session:
Clinch: "The photo of Neil drinking tea was taken at the Fox Theater in Northern California during rehearsals for the tour."Long May You Run: A Neil Young Retrospective," is an exhibition at the Morrison Hotel Gallery in Maui beginning on January 13th which features images of Neil Young as captured by Julie Gardner, Joel Bernstein, Henry Diltz and Danny Clinch.
It was a mixture of different members of Crazy Horse with Ralph sitting next to Neil and Ben Keith just out of the frame. They were discussing the songs Neil would usually play with his other band, only now they were mixing it up – you didn't normally have Ben Keith playing on some of these songs. They were laughing and going over songs and just having a good time. I love how casual it is – his shoes are off, drinking a cup of tea.
Personally, I'm a little envious that this isn't my job – to sit around with my friends, playing and talking about music and drinking tea. … but it is pretty cool that I get to photograph them doing this."
