None other than esteemed singer/songwriter John Wesley Harding, née Wesley Stace, has reviewed Neil Young’s new autobiography for the Wall Street Journal. Stace says Young’s book, Waging Heavy Peace, is in line with Young, the person:
“Waging Heavy Peace” is typical, in structure and tone, of a man who has seemed at times to be consistent only in inconsistency, both in his artistic output and in his views: a songwriter who once scrapped album after album and now releases everything, a guitarist who creates unearthly random noise yet is annoyed by minor mistakes on the recording of “Like a Hurricane.”
The book looks to be a great read and Stace’s review definitely is. Read the whole thing at WSJ.
