It seems to have gone largely unnoticed but Neil Young's ex-wife Pegi died on Tuesday of this week, New Year's Day, of cancer. She was 66.

Pegi was actually a talented singer/songwriter in her own right and I have video to prove it. The fact that Spooner Oldham was in her touring band speaks volumes.

Pegi did lots of good in the world. She co-organized the annual Bridge School Benefit. The long-running but now defunct annual Festival here in the Bay area raised funds to educate disabled kids.

Here's some video. Sure enjoyed your show two years ago Pegi..........

Here is what Neil said about her:

Neil Young paid tribute to his ex-wife, collaborator and Bridge School co-founder Pegi Young in a post on the rocker’s Archives site.

“Thanks Pegi, for being such a wonderful mother to our children,” Neil wrote Saturday, his first public comments since Pegi’s death. “You live inside of them and the many you have touched.”

Pegi Young died Tuesday at the age of 66 after a yearlong battle with cancer. “[She was] surrounded by her friends and family in her native California” at the time of her death, according to the singer-songwriter’s Instagram.

On Saturday, Neil also reposted the lyrics to his Harvest Moon song “Such a Woman,” one of the many tracks inspired by Pegi.

“You are such a woman to me / And I love you / Our love will live / Until the end of time,” Young wrote in the 1992 song. “No one else can kill me like you do / No one else can fill me like you do / And no, no one else can feel our pain / Love is a healer / And I love you.”

Lyrics from an album that came out in 1992. Neil loves her so much now that he bailed on her a few years ago for a flaky mermaid.
