If you’re a Neil Young fan, you have a lot to be thankful for lately. The singer-songwriter published a memoir this week called Waging Heavy Peace. And Young’s band Crazy Horse released a new song from an upcoming album. But if you’re a reporter -- well, the famously reclusive Neil Young might make you a little nervous. David Carr recently visited Neil Young at his Broken Arrow ranch in California. In the profile that resulted, Carr wrote that reporters are not Neil Young’s “favorite species of human.”

Carr gives the story behind the story, admitting he was "sweating bullets" on his way to Young's famous ranch.

Check out a video for the new Neil Young & Crazy Horse song, "Walk Like a Giant."
