Rolling Stone reports that Neil Young is filing for divorce…
Neil Young has filed for divorce from Pegi Young, his wife of 36 years and frequent musical collaborator. A petition for dissolution of marriage was filed by Young in their hometown of San Mateo, California, on July 29th. A hearing is scheduled for December 12th. A rep for Neil Young had no comment.
Pegi is the inspiration for some of Young’s most enduring love songs, including “Such a Woman,” “Unknown Legend” and “Once an Angel.” She began serving as his background singer in the 1990s, sharing the stage with him at the 1994 Academy Awards and numerous tours over the past 20 years. They last performed together at the Bridge School Benefit in October of 2013.
The article also mentions that though Pegi was billed for Farm Aid 2014, she’s been removed from the lineup.
