I don't read a lot of biographies, but I have always thought Neil Young was one of the most interesting artists I had ever encountered. I had heard a few of the stories of Neil's life, but hearing them in his words was great. I liked that he jumped around a lot - like a stream of consciousness conversation. The connections he has had over the years, and the way he was at the heart of the 60s and 70s culture makes his story very interesting, as it is also part of my story.
I really enjoyed how open and honest he comes across in the stories. I am sure some were hard to write.
Keith Carradine's narration was a little wooden, but it seemed to work for me. He would not sound good at all reading fiction in that style, but for this story, it didn't bother me, and I am often critical of the readers.
I felt how strongly Neil loves his family and friends, and how important they are to him. Once I started it, I didn't want to get out of the car.
He talks quite a bit about his audio project, and his electric car project, but these are a lot more than money-making projects to him, and I didn't get tired of hearing about them, although a couple of my friends did.
