Neil - We are ALL in serious need of a life! Why do you think we log in here day after day, hour upon hour, and attempt to impress, entertain, or convert one another with obscure political harangues, wordy song analyses, and humorous BS? Would people with a life be doing this? Hell no! I was in the "3rd world" a while back, and nobody I saw was doing this, and they had a healthy, lively attitude that I envied. Not a friggin' computer or a McDonalds in sight! Good home cooking at every meal. And get this...the poor suckers all want to come to North America and eat microwaved shit! Unbelievable. The propaganda seems to be working all too well...

Hey, man, we pampered corporate slaves in North America can't all be major achievers like you, and still have that half-crazed look in our eyes as we stagger onstage, and get paid big bucks for it, and have fictional mental institutions named after us. Have some compassion! :-)

By the way, I loved "Comes A Time" and "Thrasher"!

Cheers,

Well, when I hear of Neil Young I think of an odd encounter I once had... I was giving my worm colony to a woman who had answered my ad, and I sang her a song I had written about worms. This woman's boyfriend was present and listened to the song.

After the song I learned that the boyfriend was a professional guitar player, working in some blues and jazz bands. He proceeded to make a speech - entirely unsolicited and virtually uninterrupted - for about forty-five minutes straight while I smiled and nodded; it was an indepth analysis of my strengths and weaknesses as a singer and guitarist, and some recommendations for the future. (Just sober enough to speak coherently, but just stoned enough to make intense speeches to virtual strangers, I suspect.)

Anyway, his main two points were that I should, one, throw away my classical guitar and get a steel string, and two, listen to early Neil Young.

As for Neil Diamond, I believe that some of his early tunes, ie Thank the Lord for the Nighttime, Cherry, Solitary Man were great acoustic rock songs. When he entered the Sweet Caroline, Brother Love's Traveling Salvation Band, Cracklin' Rosie phase, you could see trouble coming. I Am I Said, You Don't Bring Me Flowers, and the god-awful Jonathan Livingston Seagull album turned him into some kind of nightclub parody of himself.

You're right, Swan. I like a great deal of what Neil Young has recorded in his lengthy career, loved the early albums, and some of the later ones too.

As for Neil Diamond, I dislike his more melodramatic stuff, but he has done some genuinely good songs too, from my point of view.

Confessions first. I've enjoyed Neil Young for thirty years or so and part of the attraction is that you never know what he is going to do next.

What worries me about some of the entries in this thread is that people have never heard him and are avoiding doing so because other people have said they don't like him. What sort of narrow minded conformism is that?

There is only music. The categories are jsut what we put onto it. There are people whose whole output I have disliked and then they just do one great number and it makes the other listening worthwhile. You don't have to like Neil Young but I do think he deserves a listen. Ditto Neil Diamond.

Let's not forget how committed he was to ths plight of the American (and Canadian) farmer when he did a number of Willie's Farm Aid concerts.

I've always found Neil to be inconsistent. I think he has written some fantastic songs, but he's also done a lot of drivel. He sure is an energetic performer. I get a sense that he absolutely loves playing music.

I saw him live more than ten years ago. Got into a big venue for free and expected a kind of nostalgia show. He REALLY ROCKED!! A musician with integrity, who has never been afraid to change.

Played in a NY tribute band for a couple of years, between celtoid gigs and singer/songwriter excursions. Great fun and great tunes. Our "Neil" was pretty convincing when he wanted to be. Our favourite jokes involved the confusion some folks have with Young and Diamond and dare I say it Neil Sadaka (sp?). Bikers loved us. Old folks danced to Transformer Man. Chicks love Heart of Gold. I quit the band last year, but I still do Mansion on the Hill and I'm the Ocean myself, one's too short, the other too long, but both worthy.

Yeah, I wish I had Neil's collection of guitars too. Put me in the "love 'im" side of the ledger. Mooh.

i think that neil youngs long and varied career has something for alot of different types of people ,he does lots of quiet acoustic singersongwriter songs (harvest old man ,only love can break your heart,heart of gold,harvest moon etc) he does long electric guitar workouts (cortez the killer,like a hurricane,down by the river,cowgirl in the sand) he does wierd off the wall expermental albums (trans,everybodys rocking,arc,re-act-or) and he does some great straight ahead material (powderfinger,dont cry no tears,keep on rocking in the free world,big time) also protest stuff (ohio,this notes for you,albahama,southern man) and also one of the greatest so called concept albums of all time "tonights the night" . he continues to vary his approach from album to album and tour to tour without ever allowing his music to grow stale ....plus he is a good guitarist maybe that is part of the reason people hold him in high regard .................but then there are those who dont so what you gonna do???

The short version is that Rosalie Sorrels is an old friend and was a client for a couple of years (about 20 years ago) when I had a small company representing artists.

Hunter and Oscar were old friends of Rosalie's and she told me some stories about her adventures with them.

I never saw the movie, but to carry on the connection...

The Rosalie Sorrels album for which Hunter Thompson wrote the liner notes was "Travelin' Lady."

The album on which Rosalie recorded the Sylvia Tyson song was "Travelin' Lady Rides Again."

The liner notes for "Travelin' Lady Rides Again" were written by Oscar Zeta Acosta.

Oscar Zeta Acosta (aka the Brown Buffalo) was Hunter Thompson's "attorney."

Why I know all that is another story.

The most incredible live rock performance on TV (since the Beatles on Ed Sullivan) was Neil Young doing "Keep on Rockin' in the Free World" on Saturday Night Live a while back. Talk about crazed!!! He had THAT LOOK in his eyes and he was playing to save his life and our soul. And you could tell that the rhythm section and second guitarist were right there with him. In that one performance you could see the magic and mystery of Neil Young. Completely submerged in the music and pulling everyone in with him. If you get the chance to see it - SEE IT. And turn the volume up. Then listen to him do "Harvest Moon" a couple of years later. How can you not love the guy?
