STATEMENT (via Pegi Young's official Instagram account):
With great sadness, we confirm that on January 1st, after a yearlong battle with cancer, Pegi Young - mother, grandmother, sister, auntie, musician, activist and co-founder of the Bridge School - passed away surrounded by her friends and family in her native California.

Thanks Pegi,
for being such a wonderful mother

You live on inside of them

INTERVIEW - Pegi Young: Charitable Work and Songwriting Help the Healing Process | Guitar Girl Magazine :
Pegi Young: I was surprised to reflect on that myself. I came into the game late in life, according to some rulebook. I’ve been able to continue recording, and I’m quite pleased that I’ve been able to carve out this time in my life to do this. When I went into the studio to make my first solo record [Pegi Young, 2007], I’d been doing backgrounds and some professional stuff with Neil.

But I was very shy and not at all self-confident about my ability to carve out a career for myself. Even in the later years, when people asked why I didn’t do this earlier, I didn’t know how, first of all, but I did not have the confidence. I was terribly shy and I still am, but when I get onstage I let my other side come out.

Interview: Pegi Young & The Survivors - New Album 'Raw'
"We looked at all the songs we had and I just put together this initial sequence and, you know, it was perfect," Young says. "It told a story. I kind of look at it as a soundtrack to the seven stages of grief. You've got anger, then shock and disbelief. As we go through the album, the later songs show my growth and ... I can't say total acceptance, but I think the last song, that wonderful Don Henley song ["The Heart of the Matter"], talks about forgiveness. That's really where it's at, you know?"

Neil Young - "Unknown Legend"
"She used to work in a diner
Never saw a woman look finer
I used to order just to watch her float across the floor
She grew up in a small town
Never put her roots down
Daddy always kept movin', so she did too."

"I came into my own, you might say, in terms of putting out my first record quite late in life," Young says. "And yet there's some authors and photographers and even probably recording artists that didn't really hit their stride until their mid-50s. Some people write a lot more and put out a lot more product than I do, but I'm pleased with what I've been able to do in the last decade, and I don't see this as my last record by any stretch.

In some ways it's like a new beginning, even."

Pegi interview in 2017:
“I hope that others who have gone through loss, who have gone through heartbreak — be it divorce, death or other forms of loss — will be able to connect with it,” she said. “I’m not the only one to go through late-in-life divorce; I’m not the only one to suffer a major heartbreak.

And I won’t be the last.”

Pegi, you will be missed by so many.

The Bridge concerts are your enduring legacy and you brought so much joy to so many children and their parents and teachers. Those standing ovations at the end of each night we'll always remember. You have been a tireless advocate for kids with special needs. We saw and felt the love at the Bridge concerts we attended over the decades and feel very blessed to have been part of those special moments with you and the large extended Young Family.

And now she Sleeps with Angels -- Ben "Long Grain", L.A., & Rick.

Peace & love forever,

More on .

How about making your own breakfast Senor Keksalot rather than wanting someone to make it for you?

Maybe Neil was making her miserable; maybe she was making him miserable - only they know the truth. You cannot guarantee anything Senor.

All I know is that she was the inspiration for a great many of Neil's best songs and his muse for many years.

As Neil said recently ' I am just doing what I do and letting the chips fall; everyone in their lives has ups and downs.' You do not live with someone for more than 30 years without mourning their passing. Neil and his family have my deepest sympathy.

Such a lovely woman with so much talent and I had truly wished she had got her happy ending. All the great things she has done for children with special needs, the BSB, and trying to carve out a career for herself after so many years taking care of others. I have no idea what went wrong in the marriage, but my condolences go out to her immediate family, and for her friends who loved her. She will be missed.

LA Johnson was politely removed - he or she made comments regarding Neil's dreadful albums of the last decade - I don't recall any rude or personal remarks and it's not a time to resurrect any of that. This site is for personal opinions and TW didn't agree with them. A sad day for all Neil fans.

"Surprised" does not begin to cover my reaction when I read this news. As others have said, thoughts go out to Neil and most especially to their grown children. It is, undoubtedly, devastating for all of them.

This is the first time I have commented on TW for some time. One reason is that I lost my own father last spring, not yet eight months ago. His death was sudden, so not the same thing as a prolonged struggle with cancer, but heartbreak is heartbreak, no matter how long you had or didn't have to prepare yourself. As I'm sure many folks can attest, losing someone can alter your focus and leave less time--and energy--for other parts of life. Some situations (and some people) require longer than others to begin picking up the pieces, to reach a stage of grieving at which you can get back to some of the things you used to do. It's partly because the news of Pegi Young's passing resonates with my own recent experiences of loss that I feel compelled to take the time to speak again.

From one grieving family to another, the grieving and the pain are real, and unlike anything else I've experienced. Just trying to process the permanence of it can overwhelm you to the point of numbness. Even in cases of lengthy terminal illness, I think there is a sense of "here one day and gone the next" that is utterly shocking to the system. Things can't be the same, but with determination, love, patience, and strength, it's possible to carry on with a fulfilling life. Look for ways to remember the good times and celebrate the life that was. And most of all, be there for one another--do your best to communicate. It's not always easy, but it's important to establish patterns that serve your emotional health and that of your loved ones, whatever those patterns may be for your particular situation.

Thanks, lastly, to Thrasher for judiciously keeping this thread clean and respectful. To be thoroughly honest, I was dreading reading some of the comments as soon as I saw this headline, given some of the discussion we've had in the past on Neil and Pegi in combination with the internet's general propensity for bringing out the worst in some people. I'm pleased to see the troubling comments posted earlier are now largely gone.

All best to my fellow Neil Nuts. We've hit a terribly sad note on which to open 2019, but I feel there is still love to burn.

A word here from your moderator hosts.

To say that these have been difficult days here @ TW is an understatement. Of course our hearts go out to the Young families. Our sincerest apologies for some of the highly inappropriate comments which appeared above before being removed.

We heard from many who were grieving that were made even more upset by coming here and reading those comments. We are deeply saddened that those who would come here for comfort, consolation, and fellowship over Pegi, ended up despairing even more.

This isn't the time or place for us to get into how comment moderation works here @ TW. Most of you know the drill.

Finally, we have gone back and done a major update above by including interviews, video and rare photos.

Please. Show Pegi and The Youngs the respect that they have earned and deserve.

It is so good to read of the many heartfelt thoughts , feelings , and to see the pictures of smiles .

I'll share a strong memory ...... A special night in the summer of 93 , a warm August evening in Toronto at the CNE . A lineup for the ages with plenty of love in the air .
Blues Traveler....Sound Garden ... Pearl Jam ...Booker T and the MG's .
Neil Young .
In between songs , to the stage on the right I caught a glimpse of Pegi , with her camera taking pictures of the crowd , I gave her a holler and flashed a peace sign and welcomed her to Canada . She lowered her camera , and shared with us ... that beautiful genuine smile .

Thank-you Thrasher , for allowing us to share memories in the celebration of a wonderful spirit .
