Alfred distributes Neil Young: Waging Heavy Peace, the Los Angeles Times No. 1 best-seller and  first memoir of the legendary singer, songwriter, and guitarist Neil  Young. Astoundingly candid, witty, and as uncompromising and true as his  music, Neil offers a kaleidoscopic view of his personal life and musical creativity.

Perfect  for Neil Young and classic rock fans alike, the book details events  throughout Neil’s life, from his childhood in Ontario where his father instilled in him a love for the written word, to  falling in love with his wife, Pegi, and the birth of his three  children. Neil fills the text with descriptive tales including his first  brush with mortality at the age of five, his struggles to pay rent during his early days with the Squires, performing in a  remote town as a polar bear prowled beneath the floorboards, leaving  Canada on a whim to pursue his musical dreams, and much more. He also  recounts his rapid rise to fame with Buffalo Springfield and what it was like going solo after their ultimate break-up;  forming  Crazy Horse and joining Crosby, Stills & Nash; and the writing of  several song classics such as “Cinnamon Girl,” “Cowgirl in the Sand,”  “Down by the River,” “Ohio,” and more.
“Waging  Heavy Peace” is a convoluted road map to that life,  drawn on cocktail napkins and pinned up with refrigerator magnets,” said Howard Hampton of the New York Times. “Part  free-form blog, part liner notes to some future hundred-disc anthology  and part loopy travelogue through one aging hippie’s expansive  backyard.”
Neil Young: Waging Heavy Peace (74-0399159466) is now available for $30.00 at music retail stores and at alfred.com.
