About this Neil Young memoir…

Posted by Jason Diamond

I eagerly await the Blue Rider Press release of Neil Young’s memoir, tentatively titled Waging Heavy Peace.  But until I can get my grubby hands on a copy, I will wonder about a few things:

1.  Will he dedicate an entire chapter to discuss the recording sessions for his 1982 album Trans?

2. Will he talk about his time playing alongside Rick James in the Motown Records band The Mynah Birds?

3.  Will there be any discussion about the infamous “coke booger” that Martin Scorsese edited out of The Last Waltz?

Obviously there’s more, but for the time being, those are the first three things that come to mind.
