Description - Shakey by Jimmy McDonough

Neil Young is one of rock and roll's most important, influential and enigmatic figures, an intensely reticent artist who has granted no writer access to his inner sanctum - until now. Shakey is the whole story of Young's incredible life and career- from his childhood in Canada t the founding of folk-rock pioneers Buffalo Springfield, the bleary conglomeration of Crazy Horse and the monstrous success of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young; to the depths of the Tonight's The Night depravity and the Geffen years; and Young's unprecedented nineties comeback. hakey (the title refers to one of Young's many aliases) is also the compelling human story of a lonely kid for whom inside music was the only outlet, a driven yet tortured figure who controlled his epilepsy via mind over matter, an oddly passionate model train mogul who, inspired by his own son't struggle with cerebral palsy, became a major activist in the quest to help those with the condition. his long awaited, unprecedented story of a rock n roll legend is uniquely told through the interwoven voices of McDonough - biographer, critic, historian, obsessive fan - and the ever cantankerous (but slyly funny) Young himself.
