Randomly Quoting SHAKEY

"One thing I could never tell Neil--or even talk to Neil about--is what he should record. I've never in twenty-six years suggested the kind of material he should be writing. It doesn't work like that. If I thought it did, maybe I would, frankly. It just doesn't. If you just say, 'Boy, that's a hit single' to Neil, not only is it not released as a single, it's off the album."

Elliot Roberts, Neil Young's long-time manager, as quoted by Jimmy McDonough in Shakey

And that's why Neil is and always has been one cool mofo.

One of the best biography-type books ever. Should be required reading for all cool people.

Of course, most cool people have already read it!

He'd never make it as a rapper!

Beth: Agreed.

KK: Agreed.

Rob: Agreed (although, of late, he has been issuing a lot of alternate takes/mixes...somewhat akin to "remixes" in the rap world).
