Neil Young’s first memoir, Waging Heavy Peace,was an international bestseller and critical sensation.
The Wall Street Journal wrote that it was “terrific: modest, honest, funny, and frequently
moving,” while the New York Times found
it “as charismatically off the wall as Mr. Young’s records.” Now, in Special Deluxe, Young has fashioned a second work of
extraordinary reminiscences about his Canadian boyhood, his musical influences,
his family, the rock ’n’ roll life, and one of his deepest, most ebullient
passions: cars. Through the framework of the many vehicles he’s collected and
driven, Young explores his love for the well-crafted vintage automobile and
examines his newfound awareness of his hobby’s negative environmental impact.
With his ferocious devotion to clean energy, he recounts the saga of Lincvolt,
his specially modified electric car, and his efforts to demonstrate to
lawmakers and consumers how viable non-gas-guzzling vehicles truly can be.
Special Deluxe captures Young’s singular lyrical, almost musical,
voice. Witty, eclectic, and wonderfully candid, Special Deluxe is an unforgettable amalgam of memories, artwork, and
political ponderings from one of the most genuine and enigmatic artists of our
time. Download and start listening now!
