Iconoclast, innovator, and an influence on generations of musicians, Neil Young has recorded more than 40 albums in an over 35-year career. Nigel Williamson explores Young’s repertoire, from the early days with Buffalo Springfield to the troubadour of After the Gold Rush to Harvest Moon. Who were the Rockets? What was the target of “This Note’s For You?” Why did he sing a song about Johnny Rotten? Who exactly was “The Needle and the Damage Done” dedicated to? With detailed accounts of the creation of his classic songs, this is an essential companion for Young’s devoted fans.
