Rock Talk With Carter: When Neil Young’s Record Label Sued Him For Not Sounding Like Himself

by Alisha Jackson

On December 1st of 1983, Neil Young was sued by Geffen records, who claimed that his albums were “not commercial in nature, and musically uncharacteristic of his previous albums.”

The suit came on the heels of Young’s Everybody’s Rockin album – his least successful release since 1969. Despite his own record label trying to sue him, Young ended up recording three more albums for Geffen.
