Neil Young and Daryl Hannah tie the knot

Recommended Posts

The singer-songwriter Neil Young and actor Daryl Hannah are said to have married during a small ceremony in California at the weekend. 

The couple reportedly wed on Saturday in Atascadero, after a ceremony on Young’s yacht near the San Juan islands.

The guitarist Mark Miller appeared to confirm the news on Facebook when he congratulated the couple. He later clarified that he had not attended the ceremony. “I only knew about it because one of my friends attended the ceremony in Atascadero and announced it on his page,” Miller said.

The administrator of Young’s blog also congratulated the pair, and referred to comments from attendees, who described the event as “a shindig.”

Hannah posted a cryptic image to her Instagram account the following day. She captioned the picture of an owl: “Someone’s watching over us … love and only love.”

Young and Hannah had reportedly been dating since 2014, when Young filed for divorce from Pegi Young, his wife of 36 years. On the media scrutiny surrounding his relationship with Hannah, Young said: “We didn’t pay any attention to that. It doesn’t matter. We don’t give a shit. We don’t care, because they don’t know what they’re talking about. And if they do know what they’re talking about, we still don’t care, but we’re happy for them. It doesn’t matter. What matters is us, not the press.”

This year, Young appeared in the Netflix film Paradox, a fantasy western musical directed by Hannah.

At 72, it marks another chapter in Young’s life and work, as he continues to press on with new music. He has released six albums in the last four years, including two with a new backing band, Promise of the Real, who feature Willie Nelson’s son Lukas among their number. Long irritated by what he perceives as low quality digital music from Apple, Spotify and others, he has also recently created an ambitious online archive of his work in high-resolution audio. In December 2017, he sold off 418 lots of his possessions at auction, raising over $300,000 from his model train collection alone.

Hannah continues to act – her most high profile recent role was Angelica Turing in the sci-fi Netflix series Sense8, a show whose cult popularity was so strong that fans successfully lobbied for a final “goodbye” episode after it was cancelled, which aired in June this year. But she is also a high-profile activist, having long campaigned against the Keystone oil pipeline system in Canada and the US. She has been arrested numerous times for her protests – including twice in front of the White House – and she and Young led a Washington-based march together in 2014.

I wish them well.

I do feel a little sympathy for Pegi.

 I'll always think of her as the Mermaid.

Phew... Saw that when it came out. I was 12... To say she was quite attractive to a 12 year old boy in that movie would be quite the understatement. :)

I'm sure they are if they tied the knot.  Neil was married for 33 years, can't see him doing it again at his age if it weren't for sheer happiness. 

I wish them well.

You never know, I'm up in the San Juan Islands right now, and on July 26th, I was docked on the same pier as the yacht they got married on the very next day... 

Damn, prolly walked right by them and being oblivious as I am, I never even noticed.

Love them both, great artists, great people.

Mitigating factor: I had a great day on the day they married, I drove down and saw X and the Psychedelic Furs in Portland.

Amazing. Just as good, perhaps even better than the early 80's. I saw them last December too... they are (still) fantastic live, which is why I skedaddled down to Portlandia.

I can’t tell you how many times impromptu jams like that have broken out in my living room.
