Neil Young: Legend Of A Loner (part 1)

Adam Sweeting, NME, 7 September 1985

NEIL YOUNG is one of rock's most enduring heroes. From Buffalo Springfield to Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young to his own brilliant, if erratic, solo career, Young has survived all of rock's traditional traumas to emerge as enigmatic and charismatic as he ever was. In the wake of his triumph at Live Aid, Young is back on the road and, in a rare interview, talks to Adam Sweeting about all aspects of his career and the grim realities of life in the Eighties.
