While the nickname never really made much sense, the simple fact that Neil Young was called the “godfather of grunge” in the 1990s proved the influential and staying power of an artist who first came on the scene in 1966. In the upcoming Waging Heavy Peace ($17), a 66 year-old Young talks about his early days with bands like Buffalo Springfield, Crosby, Stills & Nash and Crazy Horse along with an incredibly successful solo career. He’s calling the tome more of a diary than a memoir, which should be fascinating, but you’ll have to wait until the October 2 release date to read his witty, insightful prose. And by that, of course, we mean the endless amounts of hot groupie action.
