TORONTO — Neil Young has confirmed he’s most definitely married to Daryl Hannah.
The Toronto-born musician addressed the rumours Wednesday in a message on his website, the Neil Young Archives.
Young refers to Hannah as “my wife Daryl” in an introduction to a live clip of him playing “Ohio.”
It’s the first time Young has addressed months of speculation that he and Hannah tied the knot over the summer.
Rumours began circulating in August when Hannah’s Instagram page filled with comments congratulating her on the ceremony.
Young’s post also reflected on how “Ohio,” which he wrote as part of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, was inspired by the Kent State shootings in which Ohio National Guardsmen shot and killed four students in 1970.
“It was a pivotal moment for me,” he wrote.
The message urged his U.S. fans to vote in the midterm elections, particularly in support of gun reform. He praised students who are “brave, demanding change in violent times.”
“Support our children. They want protection. Not more guns,” he said.
“Give us common sense gun laws that protect our people, in schools, in places of worship, in the workplace and on the streets.”
