Neil is writing a book

actually he already wrote it:

Neil Young taking a holiday from music

After the rapturously received world premiere of Neil Young Journeys on Monday evening at a packed Princess of Wales Theatre, the singer and about 35 relatives, friends, associates and discreet admirers repaired to Canoe restaurant for a quiet (no music!), relaxed dinner 54 storeys above downtown Toronto.

Seated at Young’s table – he kept a white chapeau on through the entire meal – were his wife, Pegi; his long-time manager, Elliot Roberts; Neil’s brother, Bob; and Jonathan Demme, the director of Young’s last three concert films, including Journeys.

Young said he is taking a holiday from music for the time being to concentrate on writing non-fiction, mostly memoir-ish stuff. He has just completed his first book, a 105,000-word epic tentatively titled Cars I Have Known. No publisher as yet.

Buffalo Springfield Tour Cancelled

i.e.:  BUFFALO SPRINGFIELD:  On Indefinite Hold 8/30/2011

Despite earlier reports, Buffalo Springfield will not be hitting the road early next year after canceling plans to tour this fall. And Stephen Stills says they probably won’t tour for a while. He tells us, “Neil [Young] started a book and said, ‘Don’t mess with the muse, man.'” Stills adds that he’ll probably tour next summer with Crosby, Stills and Nash.

Buffalo Springfield reunited in 2010 for Neil Young’s annual Bridge School benefit and then played seven shows this past June — six in California and the Bonnaroo Festival in Tennessee. CSN was scheduled to play shows at New York’s Beacon Theatre tonight and tomorrow, but will perform only tomorrow night, as tonight’s show has been pushed to November 6th with a second show to be announced.

They’ll also make up last Saturday’s canceled benefit on Long Island, New York later this week. Stills will tour this fall with Young’s wife, Pegi Young, as his opening act. David Crosby and Graham Nash will tour Europe this fall. http://www.wmgk.com/music/news/story.aspx?ID=1530078

IMHO, ED2: they talk to much, that’s what might shy others off.

I\'ve written some of my best songs on the move, driving on a long journey, scribbling lyrics on cigarette packets while steering. I like that style, though I tend to get pulled over a lot by traffic cops for driving erratically.
