Neil Young will turn 60 in 2005. Kevin Chong will turn 30. To celebrate these two milestones, Chong sets off on a road trip in search of his boyhood hero. Crisscrossing the continent, he visits Winnipeg, where Young formed his first band; Toronto, where Young was a Yorkville folkie; Los Angeles, where he became a star with Buffalo Springfield; and other noteworthy stops before ending up in Seattle, where he finally sees Neil Young on stage. Along the way he spars with rabid Neil fans, talks to people who knew Young as a kid, and puzzles over Young's strange, sometimes contradictory pronouncements on such topics as digital music, the environment, AIDS, and Ronald Reagan. More than just an entertaining account of Chong's journey, Neil Young Nation is a celebration of rock and roll, contrarianism, the allure of the road, being cool, and aging gracefully.

Neil Young Nation

Chong’s novelistic character-building starts us off with reasons for Young’s music to link a listener’s first experience of a Young song to a subscription to ‘Young Nation’. It’s a personal account lacking in formal reference but no lesser read because of it. The obsession makes Chong retrace the route Young took himself on a quest to be a rock star, and Chong’s quest is revealed in the writing of this book. Tidy prose in places, and an interesting take on fandom.
