No other rock & roll biography I've read compares to this one.
As others point out, he DEFINITELY inserts himself into the story too much - this is supposed to be a bio of Neil Young, not Neil Young and Jimmy McDonough.
After reading this book, I became a bigger fan of Neil Young's music and a fan of Neil Young the man.
Good first 3/4 of the book and then it bogs down, between Neil's uninteresting 80s period and the authors opinions. Spoiler: The author doesnt like the lighter side of Neil. Read morePublished 1 month ago by AARON L DAVIS
