Happy 68th Birthday Neil Young

On Neil Young’s 68th Birthday American Songwriter looks back on a 2011 Cover Story “Neil Young & Daniel Lanois Love and War.”

It’s a well-written, thoughtful Q & A with the legendary songwriter, and a nice issue for collectors of Neil memorabilia.

Does he really look like Gregory Peck?

Meanwhile fans are looking forward to Young’s 4-day acoustic concert series at Carnegie Hall in New York come January, with hopes for a U.S. Tour.

“Serious, intense, with hooded blue-gray eyes that always seem capable of pinning you to the wall, Neil Young looks like a man who has forged an uneasy peace with himself and the choices that he’s made.

“Gone is much of that early restlessness and ire; the kind of discontent that found him pitching televisions out of third story windows into southern California canyons, or scowling onstage amid a 15-minute version of “Down By The River,” without ever acknowledging his audience.

“Two months from his 65th birthday, there is an air of quiet acceptance about him as he sits with perfect posture in his smart white Panama hat, trimmed beard and green military jacket. His lived-in features – chiseled and defined – give him the air of an aging leading man, and as you take a step back and squint, he resembles no one so much as Gregory Peck, with the same mixture of obsession and righteousness.”

I\\\'m really turned on by the new music I\\\'m making now, back with Crazy Horse. Today, even as I\\\'m talking, the songs are running through my head. I\\\'m excited. I think everything I\\\'ve done is valid or else I wouldn\\\'t have released it, but I do realize the last three albums have been a certain way. I know I\\\'ve gotten a lot of bad publicity for them. Somehow I feel like I\\\'ve surfaced out of some kind of murk. And the proof will be in my next album.
