a man needs a carrie

legend has it that neil young fell for actress carrie snodgress after watching her in 'diary of a mad housewife.' he wrote 'a man needs a maid' without giving too much thought to what those lyrics might mean to others. then again, neil has gotten away with plenty in the lyrics department.

their union ended as abruptly as her shining career. i only included the magazine page so you can see her and the son she had with neil. he looks like his pa.

she was a magnificent actress, tiny and fragile, yet fierce.

I will never forget her in Diary. She was one of the greats. Thanks for your post.
