A Little Light Summer Reading

Neil Young has been in the spotlight quite a bit this past year with the release of his long-awaited box set, the mystery behind his entirely rebuilt electric car, his acoustic/electric solo tour and his recently recorded new studio album. But, one of the greatest things to have come out this past year was a book entitled Neil Young - Long May You Run: The Illustrated History. A 224-page hardcover gateway to the life of Neil Young. The book is filled to the brim with pictures as far back as his childhood all the way to present day.

It covers his time in The Squires, Buffalo Springfield, CSNY and more. It talks about his favorite guitar, how he came to write the classic song "Ohio" as well as comments from other artists like Joe Perry of Aerosmith.

One of my favorite things is that this book shows is his concert posters throughout the years, as well as the covers of the different albums and singles he released in different countries. This book contains Neil Young's entire discography, including any guest appearances he made on other albums.

This exceptional book was written by Daniel Durchholz & Gary Graff and released through Voyageur Press. For more information on this book, please visit Also check your local online bookstore to purchase the history of one of the most outstanding and innovative artists to have ever performed.
