Subject: Take a look at his life...

There is an interesting, long Neil Young article/interview in the Austin American-Statesman. Here's an excerpt:

Though he may have looked old that afternoon in the hallway, he was hardly a ghost of his former, youthful, noisemaker self. He hung on to that image throughout the '90s, but now seems content to let it go.

"I went to Hawaii after finishing the CSN&Y album, and I had time to think about [Silver & Gold]," he says. "I thought about it, and when I got home, listened to the record. It all sounded great, and I haven't changed it since. I don't know what it is, but this record is me at this point."

It's a review of Silver & Gold, and it's the headlining review. They gave it just a 1/2 a star short of being a classic. That's the highest rated new labum I have seen in RS for a long time. I've heard some of the songs from the album live, and a few web clips, and now I'm stoked.

Perhaps her favorite guests are musicians, including Elvis Costello and Neil Young, who have performed on her show and discussed their composing process. "I love songs. Songs are my favorite things," says Gross, who confesses that she yearned to be a lyricist when she was in high school.

Cowgirl in the Sand was used hauntingly in a key scene (taking place in a hospital) in Alison Maclean's new film, Jesus's Son, about the drug culture in the 70's. The movie follows one such character called FH (short for fuckhead) and his various adventures and misadventures. The film stars Billy Crudup and Samantha Morton (recently nomonated in a best supporting actress role in Woody Allen's Sweet and Lowdown). There are also cameos by Denis Leary, Holly Hunter and Dennis Hopper. The film, based on a book of linked short stories of the same name by Denis Johnson, Jesus's Son is due to be released in June 2000. It is quite funny given the dark nature of the film and it is also extremely well acted. It may remind you of Drugstore Cowboy.

Subject: Neil checks out Lou

Had my first Neil encounter after many years of following the man. I went to all three nights of Lou Reed's shows at the Knitting Factory, and last night (Sunday) just before the show started someone planted a hand on my shoulder and asked if he could get by. I was about to make a fuss when I turned around and saw Neil. Couldn't see who he was with (a group of 3 or 4 women) but he just smiled when I said "Hi Neil", and he stepped over the seat into his reserved seats. He stayed for most of the set, then his group went back to the dressing room. Neil followed a few minutes later and then left before the show ended.

Neil seemed to really enjoy some of Lou's new songs, leaning forward and tapping away on his knees, especailly when the guitar got real fuzzy and distorted.

By the way, Lou was great. The new album should be fantastic judging by the new songs he played. Lou seemed very relaxed and easy-going for a change, especially the first night. Over the three nights, behind the reserved seats we saw Laurie Anderson (of course), Willem Dafoe and half the cast of the Sopranos. Basically three fantastic nights of music, topped off with my first Neil encounter. As good as it gets.

Subject: Weirdness at the Walk

Acting on a last minute tip from my friend Dave, I managed to arrive at the Royal Alex theatre just as the Walk of Fame ceremonies were starting. Actually, I missed the bagpipers and the opening speech by the president of the Walk of Fame committee. The participants were already seated in a row in front of the theatre, and a large section in front of them was gated off for VIPs. Behind them was another gate for the scant public (including me). There were not a lot of people there - probably due to the fact that it wasn't well advertised. A couple film crews (CTV, some online website, someone else) were set up.

Our beloved (?) Mayor, Mayor Mel Lastman (the clown prince of Mayoral politics) gave a funny speech welcoming Donald Sutherland and Neil Young back to Toronto. As reported on the online news reports, he said something like "(reading from notes) ... and Neil Young, who has given us his music and poetry (stops reading, looks back and Neil) Poetry? (looks back at crowd) This guy doesn't look like he writes poetry. I was talking to him for a few minutes and he didn't say anything poetic!".

Later in his speech he mentioned that Neil's biggest seller was Heart of Gold. "(looks back at Neil) Is that right? Is Heart of Gold your biggest record? (Neil shrugs). It isn't? (Neil says 'I don't know'). Oh you don't know. Well I just wanted to make sure my information was correct".

Mel then handed the out the 'keys to the city' to the Donald and to Neil. He read out the inscription, which mentioned 'Heart of Gold'. Something like 'We give you the keys to the city for showing the world that Canadians have a Heart of Gold'. Actually I hope it wasn't as corny as that. Donald Sutherland strode up to Mel Lastman and kissed him as he took his keys. Neil barely got up off his seat, and just sort of leaned towards Mel and stuck out his hand! (which I thought was pretty funny).

Then Heritage Minister Sheila Copps gave a speech in which she tried to include a bunch of Neil Young song titles. Yes it was that corny. She said something like "Most Americans wouldn't know about Ontario, or even a small town in North Ontario ... etc." She said something weirder like "As Canadians, we are proud that you and your three illustrious partners (i.e. CSNY) have shown the world that Canada can Rock in the Free World ...". What did that mean?

And then to end the speech she said "But the most important thing is that you've taught us all to 'Teach Our Children Young'!". I'm still confused about that one. She then handed each of them star-shaped trophys commemorating the Walk of Fame unveiling. They, too, had inscriptions -- of which I now forget.

Then Donald and Neil pulled the covers off their stars, and photos were taken. Neil scurried off inside the Royal Alex and Donald stayed out for a while signing stuff.

I saw Ben, Zeke and Elliot in attendance. Didn't recognize anyone else.

Subject: Neil gets his star

Previously it was reported that Neil would be added to the Canadian Walk Of Fame in June. I guess since he's in town with CSNY2K right now, they decided to save him a return trip. Here are excerpts from a Toronto Sun article:

Expatriate entertainment stars Donald Sutherland and Neil Young now have a corner of the homeland to call their own.

The actor and the musical legend yesterday unveiled their neighboring King Street stars -- actually stylized maple leafs set in granite -- on Canada's Walk of Fame.

Singer-songwriter Young, 55, who wore a backwards baseball cap and a CSNY leather tour jacket over jeans, was a man of few spoken words.

"I'd like to thank Canada for giving me my roots and I'd like to thank my Mom and Dad for teaching me the value of free expression," Young said before leaving for a sound check for last night's Air Canada Centre concert.

Sutherland and Young were each given a take-home trophy version of their Walk of Fame star. Mayor Mel Lastman also awarded them keys to the city. On a stage flanked by Canadian flags and Mounties (serenaded with South Park's Blame Canada by a couple of onlookers), Lastman called the two "great ambassadors" for Canada and praised their career achievements, after a fashion.

"Neil has delighted millions with his music and his poetry. He doesn't look like he does poetry, huh? I was talking to him for a few minutes and I didn't hear anything poetic," he said.

Federal Heritage Minister Sheila Copps began her remarks by calling Sutherland "sexy."

"What about Neil?" yelled an onlooking fan.

"Neil gives great music," Copps replied.

The Globe and Mail also covered the story...

What I'm really looking forward to, though, is THIS week's Jarmusch feature, showing on Thursday night at midnight. It's a 107 minute testament to the power of pure rock & roll, and has a title which links a period of 365 days with a large hooved animal...

I have to say that I have never been more emotionally engaged with a Rolling Stone article than with this one. If you get a chance to read the article, you will know what I mean.

Subject: Neil's Formula

A Launch article about Neil's Walk of Fame star, includes this...

In a recent interview, LAUNCH asked Young if there was a particular method or formula to the stylistic diversity he'd practiced from one album to the next throughout his career.

"There's no real logic to it," Young explained. "I may do two rock 'n' roll albums in a row at some point, or I may do two soft ones in a row, or I may do some different kind of album that everybody wonders what the hell I did that for. I mean, I could do that. You know, it just depends, and there's no plan. I'm just going with the songs. The songs dictate the direction."

I emailed Reprise Records to find out the difference between the regular Silver And Gold album and the "Limited Edition" copy, and how many copies would be available. This is what they sent me back:

>  The difference is in packaging, and the limited edition
>  will include a poster.  There are only 15,000 copies of

Subject: Neil on the Walk

Neil is one of this year's recipients of a 'star' on Canada's Walk of Fame in Toronto's entertainment district... I beleive the ceremony date is June 23... Full article is on the Jam Movies site (since the celebs they consider most newsworthy are the movie stars).

Wonder if Neil will show up for this...
