Neil Young is one of the few artists who successfully, and in his own unique way, has mix sensitive and delicate songs with electrified and distorted rawness. His mission for finding new expressions have sometimes resulted in turning the sounds in new directions that have made him hard to reach for some. After tons of albums, it is undoubtedly that his legacy have become huge.
In 2012 Neil Young wrote his biography Waging Heavy Piece in which he tells us about his life as a man and an artist. He also mentions his ongoing project with Pono – a new music format that will let us hear music as the musicians heard it in the studio – and Lincvolt – an automobile driven by alternative energy, but still looks like a classic car.
Neil Young has always been noted for high integrity, he refused all ideas to make use of his music in commercial situations. Although he does not get involved in politics as a person, he did take a clear stand against the George W. Bush administration with the album Living With War and the following tour.
