Bucket of water, collection of harmonicas, a few guitars and a stage. That guy is money!

His newer stuff is even genius. Listening to "Chrome dreams II" right now.

A few beers after a long day at work, and a good tv dinner... It hits the "spot"

Thank god! I thought I was on the moon for a little while...

I have a very eclectic music taste, but I remember a radio show years ago called "Desert Island Discs" where musicians were asked what they would want if stranded somewhere.

I'm all over the map most days but anything with Neil in it is like a pain pill.

"Rust Never Sleeps" is the best music dvd I've ever seen :thumbsup:

Other than the two albums, Live Rust and Rust Never Sleeps, I've never really listened to him.

I like Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.


Does that count?

I've seen the needle and the damage done.


Ten soldiers and Nixon's coming


That guy has a embarrassment of greatness in him.

Ronnie Van Zandt said in an interview that his reference to Mr. Young in that song had been a joke, and that he admired Neil Young as an artist and as an individual.

The man has made his own way in the world, doing music exactly as he pleased.

In his book "Since Then", David Crosby wrote that what most people never understood about Neil Young is that his (N. Young's) sole focus is making music, that he has never cared anything at all about fame, being "a rock-n-roll star", or the rest of it.

Everything's a "joke" when you realize you've stepped in it. Lynyrd Skynyrd really foot-in-mouthed that song. HH

No doubt.

Neil Young wrote two scathing songs about the American south..
Both were written when he was just an idealistic kid.

I said a lot of stuff at 20, 21 years of age that I wish I had not..

"Ronnie and Neil" by the allmighty Drive By truckers



"Church blew up in Birmingham
Four little black girls killed for no ******* good reason
All this hate and violence can't come to no good end
A stain on the good name.
A whole lot of good people dragged threw the blood and glass
Blood stains on their good names and all of us take the blame

Meanwhile in North Alabama, Wilson Pickett comes to town
To record that sweet soul music, to get that Muscle Shoals sound

Meanwhile in North Alabama, Aretha Franklin comes to town
To record that sweet soul music, to get that Muscle Shoals sound

And out in California, a rock star from Canada writes a couple of great songs about the
Bad **** that went down
"Southern Man" and "Alabama" certainly told some truth
But there were a lot of good folks down here and Neil Young wasn't around

Meanwhile in North Alabama, Lynyrd Skynyrd came to town
To record with Jimmy Johnson at Muscle Shoals Sound
And they met some real good people, not racist pieces of ****
And they wrote a song about it and that song became a hit

Ronnie and Neil Ronnie and Neil
Rock stars today ain't half as real
Speaking there minds on how they feel
Let them guitars blast for Ronnie and Neil

Now Ronnie and Neil became good friends their feud was just in song
Skynyrd was a bunch of Neil Young fans and Neil he loved that song
So He wrote "Powderfinger" for Skynyrd to record
But Ronnie ended up singing "Sweet Home Alabama" to the lord

And Neil helped carry Ronnie in his casket to the ground
And to my way of thinking, us southern men need both of them around

Ronnie and Neil Ronnie and Neil
Rock stars today ain't half as real
Speaking their minds on how they feel
Let them guitars blast for Ronnie and Neil"

"Southern Man" had nothing to do with geography. HH
