Neil Young took a break from his ongoing tour with Crazy Horse today to answer fan questions via Twitter. This was hardly a re-do of his famous 1975 Rolling Stone interview with Cameron Crowe, but there were some great moments. Among many mini revelations, Young affirmed that his long out of print 1973 album, Times Fades Away, will be re-released at the same time as his PONO project surfaces. He also said he might record with Dave Grohl, he didn't read his Shakey biography before writing his new memoir, Waging Heavy Peace, and he'll one day release his 1991 live album, Weld, on DVD. The last album he bought? Jimmy Reed's Rockin' With Jimmy Reed. New band he's into these days? Foster the People. When asked why big rock stars like him and Bono are Foster fans, Young joked: "Who's Bono?"
Here are some of Young's best exchanges with fans:

Neil: Why did you wait until you were sober to do "Psychedelic Pill?" I enjoy talking to myself on Twitter. Good bye. Thanks for listening.— Neil Young (@neilyoung) October 24, 2012
