Publisher's Summary

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Neil Young’s Waging Heavy Peace, the rock music memoir of the year. Read by Keith Carradine.
"I felt that writing books fit me like a glove; I just started and I just kept going." Neil Young is a singular figure in the history of rock and pop culture generally in the last four decades. Reflective, insightful, and disarmingly honest, in Waging Heavy Peace he writes about his life and career. From his youth in Canada to his crazy journey out to California, through Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, & Nash, to his massively successful solo career and his reemergence as the patron saint of grunge on to his role today as one of the last uncompromised and uncompromising survivors of rock & roll - this is Neil’s story told in his own words.
In the book Young presents a kaleidoscopic view of personal life and musical creativity; it’s a journey that spans the snows of Ontario to the LSD-laden boulevards of 1966 Los Angeles to the contemplative paradise of Hawaii today. Along the way he writes about the music, the victims, the girls, and the drugs; about his happy family life but also about the health problems he and his children have experienced; about guitars, cars, and sound systems; about Canada and California and Hawaii.

Shame about the lost credit

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Keith Carradine?

This guy sounds more like a brainless cheerleader reading out loud a self help book than someone with balls to narrate Neil Young's autobiography. I cannot get over the pretended enthusiasm and complete lack of style and presentation, even after a couple of hours listening that usually does the trick. It just kills the story.

Maybe the book is an enjoyable read, though, I'll give it a try some day.
