Neil Young To Become An American Citizen

"Canadian" Neil Young will become an American citizen next month.

From At 74, Neil Young will finally become an American citizen: ‘We’ve got a climate emergency’ | LA Times by RANDY LEWIS
“I’ve passed all the tests; I’ve got my appointment, and if everything goes as planned, I’ll be taking the oath of citizenship” shortly after turning 74 on Nov. 12. The salient point being, “I’ll be able to vote,” said Young, who has lived roughly two-thirds of his life in the U.S. since arriving in Los Angeles in the mid-’60s and first making his mark on the rock ’n’ roll landscape with Buffalo Springfield.

“I’m still a Canadian; there’s nothing that can take that away from me,” he said. Young was at a studio in Santa Monica where he and his wife, activist-actress Daryl Hannah, assembled their new film, “Mountaintop,” documenting the recording of Young’s latest album, “Colorado,” which arrives Oct. 25.

“But I live down here; I pay taxes down here; my beautiful family is all down here — they’re all Americans, so I want to register my opinion” about this country.

Oh Canada!

FWIW, Neil Young has a word or 2 to say about U.S. politics from north of the border via California ...

more to come ... for sure ...

Saying the oath isn't what makes you an American. Neil's been an "American" since the day he was born.
