Here’s a musical interlude for a Sunday afternoon: In this wide-ranging recent interview, Howard Stern talks to Neil Young about how Young started as an artist, as well as his struggle with polio, his Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young years, and the causes he supports these days. Young touches on some of his greatest hits and tells the stories behind them.

The legendary troubadour was also on Stern’s show in his new capacity as a tech innovator, promoting the PonoPlayer, a digital music player designed to optimize sound quality that drummed up interest and funds on Kickstarter. Have a listen below.
