In his 1992 song, “Unknown Legend,” Young wrote about that first meeting:
“She used to work in a diner / Never saw a woman look finer / I used to order just to watch her float across the floor.”
She and Young had two children together, Ben and Amber. They were divorced in 2014; Neil Young married actress Daryl Hannah in 2018, The New York Times reported.
In his 2013 book, "Waging Heavy Peace," Young wrote that his ex-wife "Was always organized and methodical in her approach to problems" and that performing songs with her was a thrill.
“Even with all the great singers I have sung with, there is nothing like singing with Pegi,” Young wrote.
Pegi Young sang backup on several of her husband's songs, and in 2007 released the first of her five albums, the Times reported. Her final album, "Raw," was released in 2017.
