Neil Young: Long May You Run: The Illustrated History

Front Cover
MBI Publishing Company, May 6, 2010 - Music - 224 pages

Neil Young has been described as brilliant, cantankerous, enigmatic, and vexing. Regardless, his generation-spanning fan base and his profound musical influence cannot be denied. While a number of narrative titles have chronicled Neil Young in one manner or another, this is the first illustrated history to span his 41 studio albums, 6 live releases, and 40-plus years as a recording and touring musician. From Young's earliest days in the Canadian rock scene through his tenures with Buffalo Springfield and CSNY and on to his varied solo career, each aspect of the musician's career is covered. Photography from rock photographers of the 1960s to the present, as well as concert posters and memorabilia from around the world, are complemented by commentary from notable musicians around the world and a discography.

Review: Neil Young: Long May You Run: The Illustrated History

User Review  - David Becker - Goodreads

Thin on narrative and even worse as far as insight into Young's work and thinking. But some nice images of career ephemera. Read full review

Review: Neil Young: Long May You Run: The Illustrated History

User Review  - Simon Sweetman - Goodreads

It's a light read, but it does an okay job of putting down the chronology. Some great photos too. A nice book to dip in and out of. Read full review
