Watch an Inspiring Conversation Between Patti Smith and Neil Young


What are you doing to cleanse your mental palette after months of constant election coverage? Taking a nap is a great option — that’s what we’re planning to do the minute we get home from work. But if you’re longing to immerse yourself in the cultural realm, what better way to do that than with an hour-long video of Patti Smith chatting with Neil Young? The conversation took place back in June at BookExpo America. Smith and Young go deep into the music on Americana, the first of two albums he released this year, talk about the similarities between writing books and albums, reminisce about the ’70s, and just generally indulge in a lovely exchange of ideas. Dig in after the jump.
