Waging Heavy Peace A Hippie Dream Free download À eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Neath the floorboards; leaving Canada on a whim in 1966 to pursue his musical dreams in the pot filled boulevards and communal canyons of Los Angeles; the brief but influential life of Buffalo Springfield which formed almost immediately after his arrival in California He recounts their rapid rise to fame and ultimate break up; going solo and overcoming his fear of singing alone; forming Crazy Horse and writing “Cinnamon Girl” “Cowgirl in the Sand” and “Down by the River” in one day. A very interesting book by Neil Young For one it is not really a memoir of sorts but of an open ended series of short essays on the nature of getting old some music hardcore car culture and an obsession with the sound uality of digital recordings and the nature of how music has been affected by technology All of it is interesting to me because he s Neil YoungHe repeats himself a tad much the book could use some extra editing in this regard but still its nice to get inside his head and this is what the book is really about And what concerns Young is the writing of the book itself in many ways it reads like a private journal to himself and he is sort of in a wonder how he can write a book He is also doing this sober which is totally new to him He writes about not writing a song for a year due to what he thinks is the lack of drinking and smoking pot But he s totally open to new possibilities and one feels that this book is just another avenue for him to dwell in The various health issues that run through his life and his family s is uietly depressing to me This is very much a book by a 65 year old man in many ways he s inventorying what s important in his life and he looks back not as a nostalgic trip but to see how things could have been different or changed if possibleAlso a large part of the book really goes into his obsession with car collecting and he has a strong aesthetic with respect to a certain type of American cars from the 60 s and 50 s Young is without a doubt is an otaku Meaning that he collects things that are important to him and can obsessively discuss or write on that subject forever For him each car has a certain narrative or history and it sounds like if he does another book that will be the subject matter He also collects toy trains and he has a firm understanding of its history that is impressive I am not a fan of Neil s music I like some of it but it doesn t move me the way it moves other people But still what I find interesting is his love of the sound of a guitar or amp His writing style is very simple but he waxes poetry when discussing sound in a certain type of environment The beauty of the hum of an electric guitar or the sounds the amps make when turned on but not in use All of this is important to Young s aesthetic and how he makes his music Without a doubt he loathes the sound of CD s as well as the MP3 It seems he has invented a new version of the MP3 where the sound is recording studio uality And this book is almost an info commercial with respect to his company that he started for the purpose of making a better sound uality Waging Heavy Peace is not a major memoir by any means But it is an interesting piece of work by an artist who is still thinking things out

Characters Ì eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ☆ Neil Young

Waging Heavy Peace A Hippie Dream Free download À eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF For the first time legendary singer songwriter and guitarist Neil Young offers a kaleidoscopic view of his personal life and musical creativity He tells of his childhood in Ontario where his father instilled in him a love for the written word; his first brush with mortality when he contracted polio at the age of five; struggling to pay rent during his early days with the Suires; traveling the Canadian prairies in Mort his 1948 Buick hearse; performing in a remote town as a polar bear prowled be. Not the best biography I have ever read In fact honestly not really a biography at all If you re looking for a bio of Neil Young this is not the book to read I found it incoherent in the sense that it did not stick together I am not sure if this was the effect the author wanted to create a lot of random mini stories thrown together If so he succeeded If he was going for a biography he failed He says at one point he didn t want a ghost writer I think it actually needed one or perhaps a firm editorial hand I also felt there was way too much about Puretone Neil s pet project to improve the uality of sound in distributed music a project with which I have a lot of sympathy I hate MP3 sound but he refers back to it in many separate chapters We get it Neil OK Now can we get to the biography part So in terms of actual biography we get a fair amount about his roots in Ontario which is interesting though fragmented He spends time with other Canadian luminaries like Randy Bachman and Jodi Mitchell but then when he comes to the USA we hear almost nothing about Buffalo Springfield and even less about CSNY We do hear a fair amount about his various illnesses traumas like early childhood polio later onset of epilepsy and even an aneurysm which are all things I learned about him We hear a lot about his hobbies again very interesting but can we hear about CSNY too Then we hear a lot about his children s various problems for which he again deserves a lot of sympathy and respect But again I felt all these stories could have been organized and presented in a coherent manner So I don t recommend the book Sorry Neil The music still great though
