Neil Young files for divorce from his wife of 36 years: Rolling Stone

TORONTO - Canadian rock legend Neil Young has reportedly filed for divorce from Pegi Young, his wife of 36 years and frequent musical collaborator.

Rolling Stone magazine reports on its website that a petition for dissolution of marriage was filed by Young in San Mateo, California on July 29.

The magazine says a hearing is scheduled for Dec. 12.

Pegi Young is the inspiration for some of Young's love songs, including "Such a Woman," "Unknown Legend" and "Once an Angel."

She began as his background singer in the 1990s, sharing the stage with him at the 1994 Academy Awards and numerous tours over the past 20 years.

Pegi Young has released three solo albums since 2007 and she's toured extensively on her own, occasionally with Neil on guitar.
