There have been a number of books written about the life of Neil Young (most notably, perhaps, Jimmy McDonough’s Shakey), but now Young has put Buffalo Springfield reunion dates on hold to pen an autobiography. Tentatively titled Waging Heavy Peace and due next fall, the book will cover “pretty much everything — growing up, music, life,” publisher David Rosenthal told ArtsBeat, adding: “I am astounded at his memory for detail.” Update: We now have a quote from Neil himself on the project:
I felt like writing books fit me like a glove,” Young said in a statement. “I started and I just kept going. That’s the way my Daddy used to do it on his old Underwood up in the attic. He said, ‘Just keep writing, you never know what will turn up.
In addition to joining Bob Dylan and Morrissey‘s forthcoming memoir club, Young recently premiered footage in which he revisits his hometown for the final film in his Jonathan Demme-directed documentary trilogy. Check out a clip from Neil Young Journeys below:
