Subject: Neil on Fresh Air

Woohoo!!! Just heard the end of Terry Gross' public radio show Fresh Air, and she said tommorow afternoon (Friday, August 24) they will be reviewing the Buffalo Springfield Box Set, and Neil will be in conversation on the show!!!

Set your timers -- Fresh Air is on your local public radio station but the time varies from city to city. Be sure to check the schedule for your station, since some stations shuffle the time they transmit it.

Neil in real conversation!

Subject: Interesting Collectible

Rhino Handmade will release in November (pre-orders now) a limited edition (3000 copies) CD of obscure/unreleased Jack Nitzsche stuff.

The only indirect connection between the music there and Neil is that the orchestral work (makes up about 1/3 of the CD) was composed by Jack with the London Symphony directly after working with them on Neil's A Man Needs A Maid and There's A World for the Harvest album. However the web page referenced above does talk a fair amount about Jack's work with Neil and with the non-Neil version of Crazy Horse. Interesting reading if you're not too familiar with that background.

For those who weren't around at the time and didn't see the news reports, Neil sent 1000 roses to Jack's funeral, with a card that read "For all the thousands of people who loved your music but never knew your name." RIP Jack...

On Monday night I saw the Cowboy Junkies in Kansas City. After the show I got to talk to Margo Timmins (lead singer) and gave her a Neil Young and Crazy Horse keychain. She seemed to love it. Anyway, last night in Indianapolis they opened the show with POWDERFINGER. I'm pretty sure they hadn't done this one on this current tour until last night (though I could be wrong about that).

Subject: Neil and New Order

In this month's MOJO feature on the band New Order, guitar player/singer Bernard Sumner says:

"I started listening to Neil Young when I was in Joy Division. At that time I was really into guitars. What I like about Neil Young is that he does a lot with a little. He made me realise that you can play solos on one string. Neil Young's got this thin, reedy voice and I suppose in some ways it's not quite right, but it sounds just beautiful."

Subject: Don't include Neil

There was a good Neil mention in today's Observer newspaper here in the UK. Last week, some sad-sack called John Strausburgh went on and on about the 'dinosaurs of rock'... 'sold out'... '60s idealism and revolution'... you know, the usual stuff. In fact, I tend to agree from a musical point of view that most of the big names of the 60s / early 70s have sold out - but only in the sense that their music's been no good in the intervening 25 years or so: stand up the Stones, the ex-Beatles, the Who, ex-Zeppelin etc etc. I know other Rusties feel differently, but I do know that Neil simply can't be put in this same bracket. So it was good to see the following defence of Neil in today's paper...

"Strausbaugh rants against stars with a 'pathological-professional need to continue to pretend they're young and sexy': the most dynamic gig I saw this year was by Neil Young and Crazy Horse, who make no pretence of being either, and whose deconstruction of one old song, Like a Hurricane, is as experimental as anything served up by rock's young avant-garde who weren't even born when it was written. Young wrote one of the most urgent protest songs - Ohio - but it was a bulletin of its time, not a manifesto for life. On stage this year, with a bare minimum of lights or stage trickery, no catwalks or preening, Young and his band were happy to look their age but to sound fierce, primal, often tender, and always timeless."

Subject: Tech Aid

A guy at SmartMoney.com (Robert Hunter, but not that Robert Hunter...) has come up with an idea for a follow-on to Live Aid and Farm Aid, for the benefit of the much trampled-upon lately Tech Stock companies.

He proposes a list of performances, including a bunch of CEOs giving pep-talks, a public reconcilliation of Bill Gates and Larry Ellison, and a number of musical sets (eg, ELP playing from Tarkus, Styx playing from Mr. Roboto, Rush playing from Test For Echo, etc).

For the 9pm performance during the concert, after the Gates/Ellison tickle-fight, he proposes:

Neil Young, performing songs from Trans. (FYI: Neil released this industrial/electronica record back in '83; it included the song Computer Cowboy.)
One interesting observation from this mythical benefit schedule is that the Neil set is the only one (other than a set by some band called "Enid") where the guy felt he had to explain it...

"But somehow, these Ohio dogs turn their angst into rootsy, bleak and hysterically funny garage rock, topped by lead singer Chuck Cleaver's falsetto, which evokes the sound of Neil Young getting felt up by a gorilla in a high wind."

"It certainly wasn't easy when we looked at the prospect of doing a cover version album," singer Jim Kerr said in the announcement. "There have been so many great songs, so many different sounds, so many artists and acts that have influenced our band... ...David Bowie, Roxy Music, Peter Gabriel and, of course, Lou Reed.

A couple of years later, the first time that we played [Neil Young's] Bridge School [benefit concert], I saw Neil's big black, must have been a '55 Chevy and the license plate says PEARL 10. I think I'm in a dream. I asked Neil how long he'd had those plates, and he said 15 years.

  2. Neil & Jimmy McDonough have settled up (in May, I think) and the once cancelled biography will be out soon.
Speaking of the BS Box, looks like Rhino has put up samples of EVERY TRACK of it on their site. I haven't tried to listen to any of them yet so I'm not sure if those links actually work, or how long the samples are (probably the standard 30 seconds)...

Subject: Neil hot on eBay

This is from today's MacLeans magazine...

Almost anything is available -- for a price -- on eBay, the online auction service. This is especially true for music fans. Want tickets to that sold-out Backstreet Boys concert? No problem. Desperate for an ultra-rare bootleg recording of the Rolling Stones? Piece of cake. Last month, even a "rock star celebrity urinal" -- once located in Vancouver's Little Mountain studio and used by the likes of Aerosmith, AC-DC and Bryan Adams -- sold for $3,037.

Canadian music memorabilia on eBay is also highly sought-after. Gordon Lightfoot's first album, The Two Tones at the Village Corner, recorded in 1962 when young "Gord" was in a duo with singer Terry Whelan, recently sold for $683. And in late June, numerous items -- including a guitar autographed by the Guess Who, a songbook signed by Leonard Cohen and a poster of the Tragically Hip's Gord Downie autographed by the entire band -- sold on eBay for $903, $302 and $200, respectively, in an auction to benefit the Children's Miracle Network charity.

But the holy grail for many Can-rock collectors is the first recording made by Neil Young and his Winnipeg band, The Squires -- a 45 r.p.m. recorded in 1963 featuring two of Young's earliest compositions: The Sultan and Aurora. A copy of that record became the source of a fierce bidding war on eBay in June. The winning bidder paid the princely sum of $1,514 for that precious piece of vinyl. Keep on rockin' in the e-world, Neil.

It is that of musicians, like Neil Young, who can follow their own vision with the blessing of their fans. And whether that vision leads them to mediocrity or excellence on a particular song or album, it does nothing to diminish the level of respect they have earned, because it is known that their intentions were pure, their decisions were true to themselves, and their talent did not disappear with youth."

Stills: "The fact that I was the leader of the band was probably what led to its demise, Neil Young not being the type to be led."

Furay: "Did I think Neil was manipulative? No, but I think he had more of a sense of direction about what he wanted to accomplish. At certain points if that didn't include the Springfield he'd move ahead at any cost. He was on a mission, and he'd move with reckless abandon."

The article concludes with Stills telling of a 14 year old coming up to tell him that Buffalo Springfield is his favourite band of all time.

A couple of weeks ago, I read somewhere that Mojo-writer (and sometime Creem-writer, etc) Sylvie Simmons was writing a Neil Young biography. I see now that it's listed at Amazon with a September 6th publication date.

This could be a good one, as I've always admired her writing for Mojo, and she's just done an excellent biog of dishevelled French crooner Serge Gainsbourg, called A Fistful of Gitanes (great title!).

Plus she's a big Neil fan. I remember her writing that she got over her disappointment with Road Rock by listening to her CDRs of the Warfield warm-up. So she's obviously not into blind hero-worship. I think she's clearly a proto-Rustie... one to watch, I think.

You can check out the details and synopsis on Amazon.
