Year of the Neil: Episode #1

First off, I’d like to apologize for not keeping up on the blog much over the past few months. I’m hoping to get back on track over the next few weeks. Over the past several weeks, I’ve been preparing for my new blog series, “Year of the Neil: The Story of Neil Young.” For those that have followed BDWPS for the past year, you are probably familiar with the podcast I tried out last year about David Bowie’s life. Over the course of the year, the podcast would receive over 10,000 downloads, which is a pretty big deal considering I do it for free and did very little promoting of it. I suppose Bowie’s death drew people to it organically, but I’m also proud that many of those random visitors listened to all nine episodes.

Despite the amount of work I put into that series, I felt compelled to continue the “Year Of” project by continuing with a new artist in 2017. The first name to come to mind was Neil Young, one of my all-time favorite artists. After researching on his life, I knew I had to tell his wild story. Below you will find the first episode. You can also listen and subscribe to the series on iTunes and Stitcher (search: Year of the Neil). I hope you enjoy the first episode that takes a look at Neil’s upbringing.
