As a three-time Academy Award winner, Meryl Streep gets to do things most ordinary people don’t. Case in point: In preparation for her latest film, Ricki and the Flash, Streep received guitar lessons from Neil Young.
In the film, which hits theaters on August 7th, Streep is a grocery store cashier by day, aspiring rock star by night. Streep of course went all out for the role, learning how to play guitar. And who better to teach her than one of rock ‘n’ roll’s greatest shredders?
