Subject: DEAD MAN revisited

Salon has a COOL article (by Greil Marcus, no less) called Dead Again, subtitled "Here are 10 reasons why Dead Man is the best movie of the end of the 20th century". Within the article there's a second list of "Ten reasons why Neil Young's Dead Man is the best music for the dog days of the 20th century." The first couple of items from that list:

  1. For a film set more than a century ago, an electric guitar, playing a modal melody, surrounded by nothing, sounds older than anything you see on the screen.

  2. The modal melody is never resolved, never completed. It feels less like a song than a fanfare, a fanfare for a parade no one ever got around to organizing.
Go read it for the rest...

The Gavin Report is the "Radio Airplay" rating service, and they compile all of the radio-play charts. In the "A3" category (I think that's "Adult Album Alternative") of stations, the Looking Forward album remains at position #6 on the chart after over a month now. Nice to see it's still getting airplay...

Subject: Extensive CSNY Article

The longest version of the recent San Francisco interviews that I've seen is on the Gavin Report web site. It includes a lot of talk about the album, and mentions that they did some filming on the streets of San Francisco for use in a video. Croz says "We have an in-house film company called Shaky Pictures and the director is brilliant and internationally known."

Here's an exchange about how the songs were picked for the album:

STILLS: ... we got some mice with the names of the songs on the back of the mice, put them in a box, and whichever One ran to the other side of the room, we used them.

CROSBY: And the reason Stephen's song was first was because Stephen cheated and used a cat.

NASH: That's why the opening track is Our Mouse.

YOUNG: Very, very bad.

Subject: REM gives fans some Neil

According to SonicNet:

R.E.M. Fan-Club Single Features Neil Young
The 12th annual fan-club single from R.E.M. features collaborations with Neil Young from 1998's Bridge School Benefit, according to a spokesperson for the band. The first-ever CD version of the Christmastime treat eschews the vinyl format from years past to accommodate nine-minute-plus acoustic versions of the band's song Country Feedback, featuring a solo by Young, and Young's tune, Ambulance Blues. Both performances are from the second night of Young's annual all-star event, which benefits a Hillsborough, Calif., school for children with severe physical and speech impairments.

Subject: Hart quotes Neil

Grateful Dead percussionist Mickey Hart is about to put out a book called Spirit Into Sound -- The Magic of Music. It'll feature lots of quotes about music from a plethora of sources (Confucius, Ayatollah Khomeini, Louis Armstrong, Leonard Bernstein, Ice-T, etc, etc). There's a partial list of "contributers" on the web, and it includes Neil.

Here's a Neil quote from the book:

Rock íní roll is like a drug. I donít take very much rock íní roll, but when I do rock íní roll, I fuckiní do it. But I donít want to do it all the time ícause itíll kill me. When youíre singing and playing rock íní roll, youíre on the leading edge of yourself. Youíre tryiní to vibrate, tryiní to make something happen. Itís like thereís somethiní alive and exposed.

Subject: How Neil got Hank

As a preview to this last Farm Aid, I did a feature on Neil for TNN's website. In my attempt to make the Neil-Nashville connection, I contacted Tut Taylor, the guy who reportedly sold Neil his beloved Hank guitar.

According to Tut, and confirmed by Grant Boatright (who worked with Neil some), Hank Jr. had traded the guitar for some handguns at a local gun shop here in Nashville on Murfreesboro Road. Tut bought the guitar from the gun shop owner and had it at his guitar shop here. Grant was a collector of fine old vintage instruments and Neil was reportedly in the market for a new old guitar.

So he contacted Grant, who took him down to Tut's place (they road there in the big ol' bus, no less). According to Tut, Neil strummed around on a few instruments and eventually inquired about the Hank guitar. "Neil made a couple of chords, one of them being a good country E. When he heard it, his eyes kinda rolled back in his head and he said, 'This is it. It's got that soul.' He wasn't wrong, it did," says Tut.

A couple of weeks ago I received a preview copy on video of the new Under The Covers - An Album Cover Story show! It's by Gary Burden & Henry Diltz.

This excellent 90 minute movie will eventually be released on both DVD and video, sometime next year. But first The Learning Channel will air the documentary on February 26, 2000.

The movie is jam-packed with interviews and old archive material (much of it never seen before!) by such artists as America, Jackson Browne, CSN&Y, Doors, Eagles, Joni Mitchell, Poco, Jimmy Webb and others.

Be sure not to miss this beautiful documentary, as it is by far the most impressive music documentary I've seen in several years!

Subject: Mercury Rev covers more Neil

Mercury Rev's Deserter's Songs CD comes with a bonus 6 song EP that includes 2 live covers: Motion Pictures from On The Beach, and Philadelphia. You can get it at Best Buy for only $9.99. That is a great deal for 2 awesome CDs.

Jonathan Donahue, guitarist and lead singer for Mercury Rev, played with the Flaming Lips around the same time the Lips played After The Goldrush on the The Bridge tribute CD. Wayne Coyne, leader of the Lips, and Jonathan Donahue both sound a lot like Neil (that nasal voice). They are both very overlooked bands that have had a big impact on the altenative scene since the early 80's.

Subject: ICE retraction

This is from the Dec. 1999 issue of ICE:

"More of the new CSN&Y album may have been recorded live in the studio than we indicated, probably three or four songs with all four principals present. We also suggested that all four members have home studios, but in fact only Neil Young has a complete home recording set-up. And although early press materials had Stephen Stills sharing a songwriting credit with Bob Dylan on Seen Enough, that was reverted to a simple "Inspired By" nod to Dylan's Subterranean Homesick Blues instead.

"PS - The album cover's photo is that of three year old Henry Stills (yes, that's Stephen's son), taken by Young's wife, Pegi."

Dear Rusties,
Last nite, November 12 of course, L.A.'s songsters paid tribute to Neil with 4 hours of some of Neil's best music. Rusties Rick Rentler, Richie Hand and I had such a great time celebrating/enjoying the music and singing along (Richie couldn't resist, and added his fine harmony with the other back-up singers).

There were fine, fine versions of all those songs {see below} done by really fine performers, musicians and back-up singers. Sorry to say, the taper guy was MIA. Jimmy Muffin, who puts this fabulous show together demonstrates so much heartfelt love for Neil's music that this annual performance is as much of a lovefest as the Bridge School Benefit! Hope to see more Rusties at next year's show. Love, Ellen


Here's a set list, courtesy of Jimmy Muffin, via Rick Rentler:
  1. ?
  2. ED TREE & TARAS PRODANUCK: Mr. Soul / On The Way Home
  3. EDDIE CUNNINGHAM: Are You Ready For The Country / Heart Of Gold
  4. BARRY HOLDSHIP: Burned / Like A Hurricane
  5. JIMMY MUFFIN w/CRAIG EASTMAN: Roll Another Number / Dance Dance Dance

  7. CHRIS LATERZO: Hold Back The Tears / Ride My Llama
  8. JILL GUIDO: You and Me
  9. ?
  10. JAMES C. SMITH: A Man Needs A Maid / Lookin For A Love
  11. DEVITT FEELEY: Comes A Time / Walk On / Harvest Moon / I Am A Child / (more in finale)
  12. FARMER TAN: Powderfinger / 4 strong winds
  13. DAN JANNISCH: Old King / (can't remember the second song)
  14. JUDY TOY w/PAUL INMAN: Cowgirl In The Sand / Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere
  15. TIM ARNOLD: Out On The Weekend
  16. JOE WERNER w/MUFFIN (trombone): After The Gold Rush / Birds

  18. ?
  19. MARTY AXELROD: Albuquerque
  20. SEVERIN BROWNE: I Believe In You / Needle And The Damage Done
  21. K & T HOLDENHILL: Old Man / Harvest

Rick sez: Ohio was in here somewhere. Anyway it was a great show. Ellen, Richie and I were the only Rusties there. Too bad the taper didn't make it.

Graham Nash did a phone in interview on KFOG today and it lasted only a few minutes. Very cordial and friendly. He described the boat accident, mentioned how well everyone seemed to work together on the record, etc.

As a last question, the DJ asked, since it was Neil's birthday today, did he get Neil a present. Graham wished Neil a Happy Birthday over the air and said he had not gotten him a gift. After thinking for a moment he said he'd get him something next year after the tour was finished. Pressed to name something, he said he'd buy Neil an antique car.

#11 was Dylan, #15 - The Stones, Bruce was #15, #50 - Chuck Berry, #51 - Hendrix, #53 - Beach Boys (remember Brian the way he was!), #55 - David Bowie, #61 - Willie Nelson, #63 - Joni Mitchell, #72 - Kurt Cobain..........

Subject: People says Neil "saved" CSN

In the latest issue of People, there's a picture of CSN & Y, and a short review of Looking Forward. "The Younger the Better" the writer points out. To quote just a paragrahph:

"But Young brought more than just another high register vocal -- plaintive and expressive as his is -- to the group. With his passionate feedback-fed electric guitar playing and his enigmatically vivid lyrics, Young rescued CS & N from encroaching wimpiness. And so he does here, adding muscle to a reunion album that limps at the outset with Faith in Me... ...While his partners tend toward clumsy moralizing (Seem Enough), Young is the alchemist who makes the old magic work."
Answers a lot of questions about the whole story of the album, for me anyway. Neil is my alchemist. I'm getting the cheapie seats for the tour, though -- because I don't have my own alchemist here at home.

After describing and complaining about the contributions by Crosby and Stills, he said "I know, you're going to say that Neil Young is the critics' darling, and that he is the only one I will say anything good about. Well, you're right." He then praised Neil's work and played a snippet of Out of Control.

He then played a Nash snippet (I haven't heard the album yet so I don't know the names of the songs), and said that it is just pretty, like all of the album is just pretty, and he went on to mention the upcoming tour, and concluded by saying that he will be glad when they finish with the tour, "so Neil Young can get back to the studio and make a real rock and roll album."   LOL!

STP hot, CSNY not
By JOHN SAKAMOTO -- Executive Producer, JAM!

The pre-Christmas buying season is heating up, as no fewer than 16 new albums debuted on this week's SoundScan Canada Top 100 albums chart. The highest new entry went to "No. 4", the latest release by troubled rockers Stone Temple Pilots. That album, which some reviewers have cited as their most consistent work, entered at No. 5, selling a healthy 9,755 copies across Canada last week.

Way down the list was the much-publicized reunion album by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Looking Forward entered the chart at No. 55, behind new entries by the likes of country stars LeAnn Rimes and Alan Jackson, metal act Dream Theater, a collection of previously released material by Tribe Called Quest, and a Rob Zombie remix album.

Subject: Q Mag Q's Neil

The new Q Magazine (with Liam Gallagher on the cover) has a page of Q & A's with Neil. Selected Gems:

Q: What was the first gig you ever went to?
A: Les Paul & Mary Ford at El Rancho on Broadway & Winnipeg some time in the late 50's.

Q: What is your most treasured material possession?
A: It's my bag. I've been carrying it for a while ... since 1969.

Q: What's the worst record you ever made?
A: Probably Time Fades Away, but only because it makes me so nervous. That whole tour was a nervous experience. It wasn't really a lot of fun. I kind of got into documenting that vibe. It's not something I want to listen to a lot, and when I listen to it I'm not that impressed.

Q: What was the last record you bought?
A: The last one I actively listened to was Dylan's Time out of Mind.

Q: What's your most unpleasant characteristic?
A: Fear of bad couplings.

Q: What's your culinary speciality?
A: I make great oatmeal. Chopped walnuts, raisins, maple syrup and a little bit of milk and organic oats. Six days a week. You know what it does? It's like a big ballast. It gets you going, but stops you from going too fast. It kinda sits there.

Q: What's your greatest fear
A: Derailments.

Q: What's the greatest film ever made?
A: I have to say that I like Citizen Kane. A contemporary favourite would be Star Wars. I like the first one the best, but they're all good. The new one was grand.

Q: Have you ever been arrested?
A: Many times. I'm wanted in all 50 states. (laughs) Last time I was driving without a licence.

Q: What turns you on?
A: Pegi.

Q: Happiness is...
A: Family.

Q gives Looking Forward 2 stars out of 5, and a fairly poor review ("Is this really the best that four 'legends' can do?")

Went to a BBQ with him on Friday night where he just hung around BSing about trains while sucking down a Rolling Rock.
