Neil Young: Heart Of Gold movie trailer - starring Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Ben Keith, Spooner Oldham, Rick Rosas, Karl Himmel. Theatrical Release Date: 2/10/2006
This documentary is filmmaker Jonathan Demme's intimate musical portrait of legendary singer/songwriter Neil Young, filmed on the occasion of the world premiere of Young's Prairie Wind concert at Nashville's hallowed Ryman auditorium last summer. Young's music provides an emotionally rich view into this unique artist's relationship to family, friends, mortality and the passage of time. Young is accompanied on stage by many long time musical companions, including country star Emmylou Harris, Neil's wife Pegi Young, and band leader/ steel guitarist Ben Keith.
After 36 years of marriage Neil Young and his wife Pegi Young are reportedly going their separate ways. According to Rolling Stone magazine Young filed for divorce in California in July this year. As well as having two children together - they have also frequently collaborated musically. Some of Young's greatest hits such as 'Once an Angel' and 'Such a Woman' were inspired by Pegi - and she also appeared on stage with him, providing backing vocals.
Neil Young is bailing on his wife after 35 years of marriage, but he's not turning his back on their son, an adult with special needs. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer filed to divorce singer-songwriter Pegi Young, citing irreconcilable differences. In his divorce docs, Young makes no mention of paying Pegi alimony, but says they've agreed that both will continue to support their adult son, Ben, who has cerebral palsy.
