Beam me up! Young writing sci-fi?

rust-never-sleeps-road-eyes“Sometimes what I love is not what other people love, but that’s okay. It doesn’t matter. That’s why I’m still here.” ~N.Y.

In an interview with Spin Neil Young says he is penning a Sci-fi story.

After listening to Neil’s keynote address at SXSW on March 11, 2014, SPIN sat down with Young in a suite at an out-of-the-way hotel in Austin to talk music, sound, saturation, retro-tech, new albums, and writing.

And then I’m writing another book right now, which is a science fiction book. I’m well into it, maybe 100 pages.

When do you like to write? I write on airplanes and in hotels. It keeps me off the street.

What’s the science-fiction book about?

Hmmm.

Do we have to wait? It’s great. I think it’s better to wait. It’s crazy to talk about. Too fucking weird. But it’s great, I love it. I love writing sci-fi. I’m enjoying the hell out of it.

Wow!

Snowden & Young together?

tech_neil_young_pono_2Where else can you find NSA leaker Edward Snowden, talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel, rock legend Neil Young, Chelsea Clinton and genetics expert Anne Wojcicki all under one roof?

(Snowden & Neil Together? The Baron’s Dream!)

It’s the 27th annual South by Southwest festival, which gets under way Friday in Austin. The 10-day event is expected to attract more than 30,000 to its tech, music and film segments, according to USA Today.

SXSW, as the conference is known, kicks off with the tech portion, targeted toward emerging start-ups and hard-to-get-into sessions that feature panelists pondering the latest tech trends.

Most attention is headed toward Monday at 11 a.m. CT, when Snowden address the crowd via video-conference, in his first public chat since fleeing for asylum in Russia. He will appear via satellite, in a session moderated by the American Civil Liberties Union.

There are parties galore, and those hard-to-get-into panels. Astronomer Neil deGrasse Tyson (Cosmos), Snowden, Chelsea Clinton and TV’s Adam Savage are some of the big draws, along with Young, who will be talking about his new Pono hi-resolution audio service, in a panel hosted by USA TODAY’s Mike Snider.

USA TODAY will be hosting a live show from SXSW Saturday, Sunday and Monday each day at noon ET, so be sure to go to tech.usatoday.com for the latest.
