Earlier this month, Neil Young revealed that he quit booze and drugs one year ago. He gave up drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana in order to write his memoir, Waging Heavy Peace, which comes out in the UK on October 11.

"I did it for 40 years. Now I want to see what it's like to not do it," said Young to the New York Times. "It's just a different perspective."

Neil Young And Crazy Horse release their second album of this year, Psychedelic Pill, on October 29. The album follows June's covers LP Americana.
