[Longhorn Review] Shakey: Neil Young’s Biography

Material Type: All, books — Tags: biography, Music, Neil Young, rock — Posted on November 10, 2008, 3:00 pm

I’m a huge Neil Young fan. I grew up in the 1970s and remember listening to so
many of his songs on the radio. A few years ago, my favorite cousin Joey was
visiting for SXSW and brought Shakey with him. During the day, he sat on the porch
and could not put it down (at night he was downtown rockin’ out). He said the book
was really interesting, especially if you like Neil Young and music from the 60s and
70s. We had a copy at the Fine Arts Library and I checked it out. What an excellent
biography. Young is very private and this is the first in depth account of his life.
I highly recommend this account of Young’s life.
