Neil Young Talks Sobriety, Signs Books For The Bridge School

Young tells writer David Carr that he’s stopped smoking pot and drinking, and has been straight for a year. “He decided to do it sober after talking with his doctor about a brain that had endured many youthful pharmaceutical adventures, in addition to epilepsy and an aneurysm. For someone who smoked pot the way others smoke cigarettes, the change has not been without its challenges.” Carr offers this excerpt from the book: “The straighter I am, the more alert I am, the less I know myself and the harder it is to recognize myself.”
