Original article by Alec Wilkinson

I was a little surprised when Neil Young published his memoir, “Waging Heavy Peace,” because he is the only artist I have ever encountered who is proud of not reading. Reading would distract him from writing songs, he once told me, meaning interfere with whatever mechanism supplied him with his melodies and lyrics.

Shar comments:

“One of the most insightful, genius writings on Neil I have ever read. Things I never thought about.”
