Neil will be on Howard Stern Show tomorrow(10/14). His first interview ever on the show. Howard is a Neil nut.
Go to Sirius/XM to tune in.

I saw Neil play in Philadelphia last week in a beautiful theatre.
I consider myself very lucky to have gotten tickets since I didn't know about the show until 2 weeks after it went on sale. The place only seats 2800 I think. One intoxicated night I checked and found two separate ticket which were close to each other. I couldn't resist. Neil solo acoustic is a holy grail show for me so I snagged them.

The show was stunning. Neil can hold a stage all alone like very few can. He opened with From Hank To Hendrix and set the bar high right away. There were audible gasps of excitement when he started songs like Harvest and Heart of Gold. Someday on piano was amazing. The few new songs mixed in were decent but not anything too mind blowing.

The thing that stood out was Neil's passion for life, the environment and his music. Knowing about his personal transition right now made some old lines take on new meaning.

'Now were heading for the big divorce, California style'. I don't envy him there.

In summary: Neil = fucking amazing

Nice, I opted out for his solo show in Toronto due to being expensive... and also finding out two weeks after tickets went on sale... and it was sold out. But I do hope to check Neil solo. Saw him two years ago with Crazy Horse and it was fantastic.

Thanks for the review of the show.

And yet another Neil album, called The Monsanto Years out in june.

Looks like he's going all enviromentalism:

Quote:
The Monsanto Years are here and we are living them. Monsanto is the poster-child for what is wrong with corporate controlled government in our world. Our upcoming record, “The Monsanto Years”, encompasses several associated subjects that millions of people world - wide are concerned about and active in.

No One Owns the Sacred Seed
GMOs & Toxic Farming*: dangers of GMO pesticides killing bees and other critical life forms by being bred into seeds, making food poisonous, how the main function of Monsanto and some other GMO products is to create plants that can endure more pesticides, the dangers of pesticides, how GMO & industrial agriculture squanders water, how unsustainable farming intensifies climate change, how GMO & pesticides are linked to Autism, Cancer & many more health problems, the crime of patenting genes & controlling the global seed supply, butterflies, birds, soil life, and more.

The Worldwide Solution to Climate Change
Sustainable Agriculture*: How organic farming practices conserve water, especially compared to Corporate Agriculture, rebuilding topsoil, protecting heirloom seeds, farmers markets, 'Carbon Farming' for sequestering co2, 'Green transportation', solar & wind power, stopping Tar-Sands, Fracking & Mountain Top Removal, Ending the Age of Fossil Fuel.

Separation of Corporation and State
Corporate Justice*: The Trans Pacific Partnership, Citizens United, corporate accountability, Government
subsidizing of Big Ag, Big oil & Big chemical companies, civil rights laws &
living wages.

The Age of Extinction
Protect Life on Earth*: extreme extinction rates, protecting forest &
ocean biodiversity, protecting national wilderness areas & indigenous sacred lands.

Corporate Media and the Disinformation Trends
News You Can Trust*: displaying magazines, journals & websites that
provide reliable news about these issues, which FOX News and many national newspapers ignore or deny.

World-Wide Water shortages.
Water & Drought*: How Chemical and GMO based Agriculture used by multi national corporations is wasting and poisoning billions of gallons of Earth’s precious water, the crime of privatizing water, the western US drought crisis, bottled water scams, using better water conservation techniques.

Local Solutions
Going Local*: Urban farming, supporting regional family farms,
supporting local businesses, protecting regional wilderness.

I find this very painful to say, but if he keeps making albums ate this pace, he'll never hit the high regions anymore...

Apart from Psychedelic Pill, all his albums from the last few years are mediocre at the best...

I'm afraid to listen to Storytone. That Who's Gonna Stand Up song is terrible. And now a whole album about Monsanto? barf. It's made especially embarrassing that he comes off like a total ignoramus about these issues. He's clearly not well-informed, but has a new girlfriend (Darryl Hannah) who's got him all fired up on this stuff.

And I can't quite figure out what Farm Aid actually does. It "helps American farmers"...but now they (& Neil especially) is all about organic farming and anti-many commonplace farming techniques. So does Farm Aid actually exist only to help that 5% of US farmers who are organic?

Corporate Media and the Disinformation Trends, is that a song title? Are those all the song titles?

I'd love someone at a Neil show to yell that one out as a request.

Here is a preview of a new tune that will be on the new album.
I like the country sound coming from this... but the lyrics... well, he's had better.


Rock Starbucks :roll:

Neil is the exact opposite of Tom Waits. Tom has a certain standard. Neil has none. When Neil is good, Goldrush, bits of Harvest, On the Beach, he is good, but after 1974 you are lucky if you get one song per album. Neil Young live at the cellar door is a good live album, On the Beach is probably his best studio album. But unlike Tom, you really have to pick and choose with Neil.
