In addition to the recently announced split from Neil Young, her husband of 36 years, Pegi Young also had to contend with the death a day earlier of Rick Rosas, the bassist who has toured with Neil and with her in recent years as she has furthered her own career in music.
Pegi Young "Starting Over" filmed at the Tower Theatre in Philadelphia PA. Directed by Jonathan Demme. From The DVD "Love Like Water" which is the bonus disc from Pegi's new album "Foul Deeds." Pegi's band includes Anthony Crawford, Ben Keith and Rick "the bass player" Rosas.
The death of a loved one and divorce always rank at or near the top of the greatest stressers someone can experience, and singer-songwriter Pegi Young had both on her plate as she stepped to the stage Friday to showcase songs from her new album, “Lonely in a Crowded Room.”
Pegi Young is best known as the wife of Neil Young. But she has been a music contributor for years with her band known as The Survivors. With the release of her self-titled debut album in 2007, and her subsequent full-length releases (Foul Deeds – 2010, Bracing for Impact – 2011), she quickly set herself up as more than the back-up singer that she has been over the years prior to her professional career releases.
