    Neil Young and his wife of 36 years, Peggi Young, are divorcing. In 1986, the couple co-founded Northern California’s Bridge School for children and young adults with severe speech and physical disabilties. The Young’s have two children, Amber and Ben -- who suffers from cerebral palsy. Neil and Peggi have been frequent collaborators over the years as well, with Peggi branching off, releasing three solo albums and touring both with Neil and on her own. Rolling Stone reported, "A petition for dissolution of marriage was filed by (Neil) Young in their hometown of San Mateo, California, on July 29th. A hearing is scheduled for December 12th." The Young’s were originally announced to share the bill on September 13th at Farm Aid in Raleigh, North Carolina, but Peggi’s name has since been removed. There's now word yet whether she'll also sit out next month's Bridge School Benefit. The couple met in 1978 when she was a waitress at a diner near Neil’s home, with Young immortalizing her in the 1992 Harvest Moon song "Unknown Legend." "I used to order just to watch her float across the floor/She grew up in a small town/Never put her roots down." Neil Young tour dates (subject to change): September 13 - Raleigh, NC - Farm Aid at Walnut Creek Amphitheatre September 27 - Neligh, NE - Harvest The Hope - Oil Pipeline Protest Concert Tanderup Farm October 5, 6 - Boston, MA - Wang Theatre - Citi Performing Arts Center October 8, 9 - Philadelphia, PA - Academy Of Music October 25 - Mountain View, CA - Bridge School Benefit at Shoreline Amphitheatre

Rick and Pam first married in October 2007 but split four months later. She told Ellen DeGeneres last October that they had become "best friends with benefits" but revealed in January that they actually remarried.

  • WSU Cougars To Battle Rutgers Scarlet Knights In Seattle Thursday
    Posted: August 26th, 2014 Listen Live! Pregame Starts @ 5p.m. on KPQ 560am! A big win in the season opener would show that the improvement at the end of 2013 was for real, and the catastrophic finish in the New Mexico Bowl was inconsequential to the Cougars’ long-term goals. From top to bottom the Pac-12 is arguably the toughest conference in the country this season, and if the Cougars drop a winnable game against Rutgers they will have to make it up against a tougher foe down the road. What it means for Rutgers Not much is expected of the Scarlet Knights in their inaugural Big Ten season with many analysts projecting Rutgers to get one conference win, if any. But this team should be an improvement over last year’s young bunch, and with highly-respected coach Ralph Friedgen at offensive coordinator, Rutgers may be capable of a surprise. Beating WSU in Seattle would be a big step toward proving the doubters wrong. Key matchup Cougars QB Connor Halliday vs. Rutgers defense. Pass defense was Rutgers’ Achilles’ heel a season ago and the early indications are that it will again be the biggest weakness for the Scarlet Knights. Early injuries have decimated what was already a struggling unit, so much so that the team moved running back Justin Goodwin to cornerback even though he was Rutgers’ second-leading rusher last season. The Scarlet Knights gave up more than 4,000 passing yards last season, and they could be well on pace to beating that figure after the season opener if Halliday’s command of Washington State’s Air Raid offense really has improved.
