Neil Young: ‘We should impeach President Obama for fracking’

Young releases his second album of the year - 'Storytone' - on November 3

Neil Young has called for US President Barack Obama to be impeached because of his involvement with fracking.

The legendary rock frontman made the statement last night (October 14) on Stateside talk show The Colbert Report, writes Rolling Stone. “I think we should impeach him for fracking,” said Young when asked by host Stephen Colbert if he thought Obama should be impeached over Iraq. “It’s not in the interest of the American people… I am part of the free world, and he is the leader of the free world!”

Young will release his new solo album, ‘Storytone’ on November 3. The LP is his second of the year following ‘A Letter Home’, which was recorded in the vintage vinyl booth at Jack White’s Third Man Records store in Nashville.

The release will be a double album with a second disc seeing the iconic rocker performing the same songs but backed by a 92-piece orchestra.

Meanwhile, Neil Young recently said that he will never tour as part of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young again. David Crosby subsequently responded to his to former bandmate and said: “I hear Neil said ‘there will never be any more CSNY shows’, that’s like saying there are mountains in Tibet we know Neil… we already knew.”
