A "... just needs this helping hand"

R "... wasn't old, but he was a man"

L "... was down again"

R "... never learned to read or write so well"

A "... had come, equipped with a gun"

6. His very first car, an old hearse, baptised the young Neil Young on the name...

N "Allen"

A "Mortimer"

O "Dylan"

R "Lennon"

7. After which silver screen-Travis did the Glasgow-Travis name themselves?

N Robert DeNiro as "Travis Bickle" in "Taxi Driver" (1976)

T Meat Loaf as "Travis D. Redfish" in "Roadie" (1980)

R Harry Dean Stanton as "Travis Henderson" in "Paris, Texas" (1984)

and that's it :)

maybe put your answers in spoiler tags so that other people can still try to solve it by themselves

What do you mean by that? 3-word solution to what?

I got all the answers and the corresponding letters don't spell out any words.

Oh, and the reporter used the word 'hairstyle', not 'hair-do', for Question #3.

Ok, I stand corrected.

I should have said the corresponding letters don't spell anything of the English language.
