Hey Rusties,
Neil didn't play with Pearl Jam last night. Several reported sightings though. PJ did do Fuckin' Up as an encore. Not bad, but not Neil.

Subject: No Neil Winnipeg Folk. AGAIN!!!

As you may have heard, the "Neil at the Winnipeg Folk Fest" rumor was once again only a rumor. Being a long running attendant, many hopes were high. But only for a huge letdown. Many of us were sure he was coming out, especially after Ani Difranco only played a six song set to close the four day festival (which was still the best ever). Hopefully we'll see him out next year.

OK, OK, this is third hand at best, but.... I drop by my favorite wrecka sto on the way home from work and my store friend sez, "Hey, I hear that CSN&Y could be touring soon."

WHAT!!!!! Where the heck did you hear that?

"The guy who was just in, said he heard it on the radio this morning."

Get outta here. Stop jivin' me.

"No, no really. He was serious. Heard it on the radio."

Sheesh, what do I know? One more thing. He'd also heard about Stills visiting Neil at the ranch (these guys are not on the net, so they didn't get it there, at least not directly).

So who knows? What the heck, it's summer, no Neil news, lets start a rumour...

I played in a senior tour pro-am golf tourney today, and Jerry Hightower (Steve Cropper's father-in-law) was there. I asked him where Steve was and he said he was at home in Nashville, but that he and his wife had seen Steve in Nashville the day before. I asked him if he knew of any plans for Booker T and the MGs to tour Australia with Neil. He said that Steve had told him that there had been some talk but nothing came out of it.

Pearl Jam announced a benefit to be played at Memorial Stadium in Seattle on July 21. Tix go on sale Saturday. Special guests will be announced later. A friend of mine said he knows someone in the Parks Dept. that told him he heard Neil would be there. Just a rumor, but we can hope!

"I better mention reak quick that Big Ben Keith is still Neil Young's steel player. I was driving a bus for them and we were on a Lionel Trains Tour. Neil owns some or maybe all of this company.

Neil is not planning to tour this summer, except for the trains shows. They are all in Calif. recording tonite, and Ben is with the crazy horses. You can look for me on the HORDE Tour after June 1.

Subject: Neil in Malmö rumour

Hi everyone!
Please take this for what it is. The only thing this article states for sure is that it may be just a little premature to rule out that the Youngs won't have a European vaction this summer. And it's these rumors that forces Lookout and the arrangers to adopt a "Trust no-one" & "Deny Everything" attitude. But then again, "The Truth is Out There"... ;-)

What follows is an arcticle stolen, slightly cut down and loosely translated from Sydsvenska Dagbladet, this morning, 98/04/16. (Note that "Brofästivalen" is a festival.)

Neil Young to Brofästivalen?

According to persistent rumours he'll repairing last years cancelled European tour with one this year.

Rumours say Malmö and Brofästivalen, confirms a representative of Young's swedish record company, but adds: There isn't any papers on this yet.

Neil Young could be the third rockveteran - dare we say legend? - to visit Malmö 5-6 june, when KB and Radio NRJ arranges the first Brofästival. Bob Dylan and Lou Reed are both already confirmed.

Among the Norweigan fans, there has been talk for some time that Neil was ready for the Down On The Farm festival outside Oslo, that takes place a couple of days after the Brofästival, that will feature most of the artist already booked for the Malmö festival.

Rumour about Young participation at Down On the Farm has been eagerly denied by Young's camp as well as the organizeres, who have made an offer.

According to Totte Lundgren from KB there will be no Neil in Malmö this summer. But he said the same thing for Bob Dylan.

Subject: Neil in Winnipeg?

The unconfirmed Neil Young rumour that I speak of is the 25th Anniversary of the Winnipeg Folk Festival. Neil spent some of his formative years in the city of Winnipeg and is very familiar with the Folk Festival - In fact when playing the surprise gig at the Blue Note Cafe June 1987 Neil expressed serious interest in playing the Fest. This will be the 25th Anniversary and Neil's old buddies from Winnipeg are hinting at a surprise appearence!!!!

I'll tell you...if Neil did indeed play the Festival this summer it would be THE biggest, most exciting moment in the Winnipeg Folk Festival's history!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Winnipeg Folk Festival dates are July 9, 10, 11 and 12. It's 4 days and nights and has a crowd of approx 30,000+. Other rumours and confirmed acts are Richard Thompson, David Lindley and Ani Difranko.

I think the Sturgis rumor goes around every year. I was there three years ago and heard the same thing, and spent the week scoping out Neil in every nook and cranny to no avail. I did see lots of buffalo, bison, and those wicked cool sheep with those huge curly horns. What a cool place South Dakota is. They make seeing a moose no big deal!

I'd just thought that I'd let you know that the program for the Molde International Jazz Festival was publicly announced today, and unfortunatly Neil Young was not on the list.

I hope that he will appear somewhere in Norway this summer, but I doubt that it will be on Down On The Farm, although it is listed as a rumored show in Tour Watch. The main reason I say this is because the venue is very small, probably too small to pay the price that Neil wants.

Subject: Neil in Norway?

Norwegian festivals Down On The Farm and Molde International Jazz Festival both state that they are "in negotiations" with Neil´s management to include Norway on the European leg of his 1998 tour. Down On The Farm, which takes place in Oslo early in June, was scheduled to host Neil last year, but as you probably are aware of, Neil cut his finger, and thus the European tour was cancelled.

Normally, one would guess that Neil would visit DOTF to "make up" for last year´s cancellation. MoldeJazz, however, have given a bid of approx. two million NOK (275,000 US$), about twice the amount offered by DOTF. If Neil agrees to play at MoldeJazz, the gig will probably take place sometime between July 10 and July 20. The MoldeJazz program will be made available for the public on March 16, 1998.

Subject: NL Benefit (Saturday)

It rocked.

Totally overwhelming though...was supposed to run from 8 to 11, I got there about 8:15 and they were finishing their first number (Lotta Love). My seats weren't bad (on the left side) although I couldn't believe that people were smoking up at this concert. It just didn't fit, even if people really wanted to recapture the 70's or something.

Anywayz Little Feat came out next and rocked pretty damn hard (Bonnie Raitt played with em). Bonnie can play, but whatever that guy's name is from Little Feat was awesome. I totally can't remember the order of bands but somehow in there Joe Walsh (rocked!) and Dan Fogelberg (a bit mellow) got in there. Personally I'm not a huge Carole King or Linda Ronstadt devotee but their sets were long and crowd-pleasing. Emmylou Harris did something called Even Cowgirls Get The Blues which was pretty cool.

However my highlights were definitely Jimmy Buffett & Stills. Buffett played If the telephone doesn't ring, it's me (we were just talking about that song!) as well as Brown Eyed Girl and...well my memory is gone... but it totally rocked. I would definitely go see a solo show of his, even if he's not exactly the same genre as Neil.

Stills stole the show (after hiding behind the curtain for the whole show, the opposite of Nash who danced to every song) when he came out on a song (that I don't recognize, I'll be frank) ... and did an awesome electric solo. Unfortunately I swear it wasn't loud enough and the guitars and mics weren't amped right (Crosby kept signaling to someone offstage to boost his output I think) ... but Stills windmilled. I mean he windmilled. It was totally awesome, though maybe he did that because of someone back in the rafters who yelled "NEIL YOUNG" right before the song (culprit out there?) ... (Why doesn't Stills do more real rockin' stuff?)

CSN then covered the Beatles (I can't believe I can't remember the song title) .. it was kind of strange, but well done.

I was dissappointed by CSN's setlist I have to admit though. They could have done a couple more recognized classics; they didn't compare to the other rockin acts (I didn't forget Jackson Browne, whose Runnin on Empty was awesome) ...

Oh well. It was fun (even with no Neil) :(

Subject: Lotta Love, Lotta Music

Just got back from the Nicolette Larson Tribute. Absolutely fantastic!!

I walked in with my wife Kathy and two young boys when my wife noticed Zeke standing in the front lobby, so I walked up and said "Hi Zeke, is Neil here?" and he very quickly replied "No. ... No. ... I don't know." I still thought that since he was there maybe Neil would be, but no.

Anyway, I went for the total experience and to give myself what little bit I could toward Nicolette.

They "all" opened up with Lotta Love, then Little Feat, Joe Walsh, Jackson Browne, Carole King, Bonnie Raitt, Dan Fogelberg, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, then CSN, all did thier short pieces to add to the unbelievable mix of talent at this tribute to Nicolette. "The Section", a bunch of talented musicians played behind everyone usually. Nicolette's husband Russell Kunkel played drums with them. I have not mentioned some others probably, but it was an experience to remember.

I don't think adding Neil would have really mattered. I just think it would be nice of him to show his respects. Maybe tomorrow.

My favorite of the evening was CSN doing Dark Star. Steve Stills shined, and with percussion and bass added by "The Section", it was great.

KLOS did mention tonight as I was driving home, that there would be an "unpromoted" guest tomorrow, saying "could you quess who might be as big as the rest", of something like that..

Subject: Nash on radio/mum about Neil

Graham Nash spent an hour with Jim Ladd on KLOS last night. Russ Kunkel came along too. They chatted for an hour amongst themselves and with listeners about Nicollette (RK said she sang all day long at home) the show (RK has put together a 9 piece backup band and they're rehearsing 24 songs), the environment (its going down hill, help save it) land mines (bad - he's working with someone to push for the agreement) Crosby (recovering nicely from hernia surgery), Stills (he and Nash are at the house of Blues this coming Monday for a Carl Perkins benefit), CSN (they're gonna be electric, they're gonna rock, backed up by Gerald? Jones, Joe Vitale, Michael Finnegan), Jimi Hendrix (GN shared an apartment with Mitch Mitchell back then, said Hendrix was shy, humble, and generous and that he thinks about him daily), Lifesize (his multi media computer based one man show), Nash Prints? (a business he has that reproduces original artwork as I understood it) and where the concert money is going (to UCLA Children's Hospital to create a Nicolette Larson room where pre-op children will stay before anestesia, nicely decorated with art and an original portrait of her by Peter Max) (there will also be Peter Max concert posters for sale at the venue).

Nash played two songs live on the radio, Lost Another One ( on piano) and These Empty Days on guitar. He requested and Jim played Motorcycle Mama by Neil and Nicolette. Jim Ladd also played Marakesh Express and Wasted on the Way.

Absolutely no Neil mention at all, like nothing. Not even when they played Motorcycle Mama did they actually talk about Neil. It seems as though they purposely avoided talking about him.

Nash is spearheading two concerts in Larson's memory Feb. 20 and 21 at the Santa Monica Civic Center. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.

"The concert's going to be fabulous," Nash says. "All the funds will go to the UCLA Children's Hospital, which is what Nicolette wanted. And it's a great bill of people, with Crosby, Stills and Nash, Linda Ronstadt, Carole King and with walk-ons by Neil Young, a walk-on Saturday night by Jimmy Buffett, and a walk-on by Emmy Lou Harris and a walk-on by Dan Fogelberg.

He then said there'd be a mystery guest but he couldn't say who. He said "look at the list of performers and imagine who it is".

He also said Graham Nash would be on his show Thursday night with his guitar for you Nash fans. Jim is on from 6 to 10 pm. He didn't say what time Nash would be on.

This morning on Arrow, Uncle Joe also mentioned the concert after playing Heart Of Gold, and said "I don't know if Neil will be there or not, but he worked a lot with Nicollette".

It is my understanding (not yet verified) that at least a portion of the net proceeds are to be placed into trust for Elsie, Nicolette & Russ Kunkel's daughter. Performers as of this time are Crosby, Stills & Nash, Carole King, and Linda Ronstadt. Sounds like a great show with possible suprises.

In the new Rolling Stone with Mariah Carey on the cover, there's an obituary for Nicolette Larson. Somewhere in there it says CSN will do a benefit to raise money for her family. They say it will be in February, but not where or precisely when. They say they are inviting Neil also, but it won't be CSNY. They quote Nash (if memory serves) as saying, (sort of a quote) "I don't see it as a CSNY thing. I see Neil on stage by himself doing just one number: Lotta Love.
