Charlie Rose in conversation with Neil Young

Canada’s elder statesman of folk-rock strips his soul–buck naked–on his Living With War album, his latest film, creativity, ecology, love and more:

Young doesn’t use set-lists in his performances; he proceeds naturally and organically, as the feeling takes him. He repeatedly emphasizes the notion of creativity as a gift, a mysterious impulse to be followed as it strikes: “Respect the source. Be there for the source.”

Words to live by, whether you’re talking about creative impulses, or anything else.
