Neil Young filed for divorce from his wife of 36 years, Pegi Young. She was a musical collaborator, background singer, guitarist, and the muse for some of Young’s most popular songs including “Such a Woman,” and “Unknown Legend.” The latter tells of the time Neil met Pegi while she was a waitress at a diner. “I used to order just to watch her float across the floor,” is one of the lines in “Unknown Legend.” Over those 36 years, Mr. Young’s net worth flourished and is now estimated at $65 million.
Mrs. Young is expected to continue pursuing her solo career as a musician. Since 2007 she has released three solo albums. Her latest album is appropriately titled Bracing For Impact. Songs included on the LP include “Lie,” “I Don’t want to Talk About It” and “Gonna Walk Away.”
