Watch an Inspiring Conversation Between Patti Smith and Neil Young
by Judy Berman. Posted on 4:30 pm Wednesday Nov 7, 2012

What are you doing to cleanse your mental palette after months of constant election coverage? Taking a nap is a great option — that’s what we’re planning to do the minute we get home from work. But if you’re longing to immerse yourself in the cultural realm, what better way to do that than with an hour-long video of Patti Smith chatting with Neil Young? The conversation took place back in June at BookExpo America. Smith and Young go deep into the music on Americana, the first of two albums he released this year, talk about the similarities between writing books and albums, reminisce about the ’70s, and just generally indulge in a lovely exchange of ideas. Dig in after the jump.

Thanks for posting and sharing.. I am about 3/4 done with Neils book Waging Heavy Peace.. I am a devourer on autobiography's about people , artists, musicians that I am interested in.. Neil Young has long been a favorite of mine and I was truly immersed in his music in the 70's.
Reading his book has been an emotional journey for me.. with his time periods that I can connect too on many levels being from this generation . I find it mystical but also in his telling of his early career how approachable they all were back in those early days late 60's and very early 70's.. Except of course for artist's like the Beatles.. but Neil with Buffalo Springfield, The Doors , Jefferson Airplane, the Dead.. most were living out in Ca. in a very happening environment for the music explosion and amongst the fans.. It was Hippie heaven in many ways.. the music was such an extraordinary and major component of communication at it's finest..Neil comments alot about that in his book and is looking and refining ways to make the music more enjoyable to listen too . He has an ambitious approach and is looking for help with his Puretone project.. you'll read about it in book.. I may have to re read this book over, there are lots of pages in all our lives, Neil has alot more going on.. He spreads himself out and is passionate about all his interests.. He is an interesting individual with many layers.. all surprising.. I hate that we are all getting old.
When I say it was an emotional read, well if any of you decide to read it and I do encourage it, Neil has had some huge personal hurdles in his life ( as I am sure we all do ).. many have left a few scars but not on his heart only losing people he loved.. amazing man with an inner vision that keeps him creating in many art forms..

I will watch the youtube later.. it looks to be about and hour or so.. Looking forward to it

I enjoyed his response to the question, "What inspired 'Heart of Gold'?".

i like what patty smith said at the end of the interview about songwriters "you're not making product, you're delivering feelings to share with the people". Great Quote.
