Neil Young Nation


Neil Young is one of the most consistently popular musicians of our time. A craggy, cavern-browed hippie in a buckskin jacket, his electric guitar chugging along like a steam engine, Young is a figure who straddles divisions: he's Canadian and American, folkie and rocker, an old guy who's relevant enough to be quoted in the suicide note of a younger musician like Kurt Cobain. Young's brilliant, gnomic, lyrical music has earned him fans of all ages and persuasions: ivory tower intellectuals and guys in trucker hats; punk rockers and hippies; yuppies and farmers; ironic young folks and their earnest elders. Novelist Kevin Chong counts himself among them. Neil Young turned 60 in 2005. Kevin Chong turned 30. To read more
