Neil Young's "A Treasure," documenting his legendary 1984-5 tour comes out today (June 14) and as Young told Billboard he had no proplem taking fan footage from the Internet (reverse piracy?). He also explains why that band rocked like no other, his lawsuit with Geffen, unreleased songs, new formats and his upcoming second and third archival albums.
