If more people had seen his outstanding concert in Lörrach, Germany, on July 22, he would have reached number 1, that's for sure. It was the best concert where I have ever been!

Topic: CSNY "Tour Of America"

Here is the official announcement and planned dates...

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, rock ‘n’ roll’s legendary super-group, has announced plans for their “Tour of America", kicking off February 6, 2002 at the Palace of Auburn Hills in Detroit. The tour will take the group to 35 cities over a three-month period ending April 2002. Tickets for the North American tour go on sale beginning Saturday, December 1st.

Tour of America” follows on the heels of CSNY2000, billed by the LA Times as, “epic – the most memorable outing in recent years.” Seen by over 500,000 North American fans, last year’s three-hour show included such classic hits as Carry On, Southern Man, Almost Cut My Hair, Teach Your Children, Long Time Gone, Woodstock, Rockin In The Free World and Long May You Run. The Boston Globe raved about last year’s tour; “If there’s such a thing as getting your money’s worth, this was it.”

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young has consistently captured America’s most poignant political, sociological and musical movements. Collectively and individually, CSNY have continued to prosper, and remain eloquent and lyrical, innovative and fresh. “Tour of America” will once again capture the musical magic that is and always will belong to Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. The chemistry is back; the music and harmonies have never left.

Concert tickets will go on sale beginning Saturday, December 1st in Toronto, and on December 3rd in New York and Boston. Tickets will be available at three price levels, $39.50, $55.00, $85.00 (plus applicable facility and service fees). In addition, there will be a limited number of Gold Circle seats offered. Additional CSNY on sales will continue in December and throughout January 2002.

Topic: Neil in Big Easy?

This just in...
In an article by The Tennessean staff writer Jim East published in the 11/9 issue of the newspaper, it was written that Neil will be playing at a benefit in New Orleans on November 30. Apparently, the fundraiser, which was to raise money for Hepatitis C research, had Rusty Kershaw and brother Doug slated to appear. But now that Rusty has left this world, part of the benefit will be billed as a tribute to Rusty. The article claims that both Neil and Aaron Neville have been announced as playing the show.

The venue is a place called Howlin' Wolf. The venue's website lists for that date:

Howlin' Wolf presents
Siren To Wail
at Howlin' Wolf
a Benefit for Hepatitis C
Friday, November 30 10:00 PM (9:00 PM doors)
But there's no mention of Neil on the website. Here's who Pollstar says is playing that night: And Neil? Perhaps. We shall see...

There's a short article about the Bridge School Benefit shows on the USA Today site. It has one comment I've not seen anywhere else, and it answers a question I've had for a while: with Ben having long since graduated from the school, and with the establishment of the Foundation to help extend the support for the school, how long will Neil continue doing the benefit concerts? Here's what the article says:

Proceeds cover a huge chunk of the Bridge budget, but the school hopes to rely less on the concerts in time. Even so, Neil Young says the event will go on indefinitely.

"The older I get, the more I like it," he says.

Greetings from the Billy Talbot Band!

As the Bridge School benefit concert approaches, Billy looks back on Farm Aid, and forward to the Bridge...

    It was great playing there in Indiana -- for
    such an important ideal, an endangered species.
    The show was great. I don't have too much to
    say about it -- being on TV you all saw more of it
    than I did (in between the commercials, that is)... 

    I just hope that, in this time when the National
    focus is as it is, we can also focus in on and help
    preserve a very important way of life in America.
    May the days of the family farmer never fade away. 

    It was my pleasure to be there, and to be playing
    music with Crazy Horse. And I'm looking forward 
    with great anticipation to doing it some more at
    next week's Bridge School benefit. Hope that you
    get a chance to see us there.

I have it on good authority that any potential plans for a webcast (either publically or "AOL exclusive" or whatever) of the Bridge School Benefit concert didn't gel. I'm guessing that the combination of Paul McCartney's big New York Benefit show on Saturday and the big benefit show in DC's RFK Stadium on Sunday were too much of a distraction. Or maybe it was hard to come up with a sponsor this year due to our current financial uncertainties. In any case, doesn't look like it's going to happen...

Topic: No stopping Farm Aid

This is a reminder that this is Farm Aid concert weekend. We are going forward with the show. All of us at FARM AID wrestled with the question whether we should cancel this year's show -- how could we celebrate family farmers and rural America at a time of such national pain and mourning?

As we searched for the right decision, we were inspired by so many who encouraged us not to give in to fear and terror, and to get back to what we can do to make this country strong. After much soul searching and consultation with people from across the country, we concluded that the best thing we can do at this moment is to demonstrate to the world the strength and vitality of American farmers and their important role in making this great country strong.

Farmers are always among the first to reach down, dig deep, to do whatever they can, to help a neighbor in need. When a farmer becomes ill, the community mobilizes itself to help with the harvest. When a barn burns down, neighbors gather to raise a new one. American farmers know how to respond to adversity and devastation. They know how to maintain enough hope to plant seeds in the ground and keep going. As all of us grapple with the senseless loss of life and mourn with the families of the victims, we look for signs of hope that this national tragedy will bring forth the best of what it means to be an American.

The bombing in New York also hurt family farmers. On Sept. 11 several farmers markets operating at the World Trade Center and lower Manhattan were destroyed or displaced by the WTC bombings. Farm Aid is asking viewers to make donations directly to a special fund set up by the Farmers Market Federation of New York that will restore these markets. Checks can be made out to "Fund for World Trade Center Green Market Farmers," and mailed to:

Farmers Market Federation of New York

Topic: Billy's home

Greetings from the Billy Talbot Band!

Here's the latest from Billy...


  Well I'm finally home, after the tour and then hanging
  in S.F. for a  week or so. I got to visit with a few
  friends there, and play some tunes with the boys in
  the BTB. I spent a day with Matt playing some acoustic.
  Heard his new songs, he heard mine -- it was a really
  good time. 

  I'm in a very good place - musically speaking - after
  playing with the Horse live for the last couple of
  months. There's so much I'd like to do... That I'm
  going to do... 
  The tour ended on a fine note in Japan at the Fuji
  Festival, as we played a super version of Tonight's
  the Night. It felt great to be playing with the Horse
  right then... I mean it almost always does feel great,
  but rocking in Japan after 25 years of not playing
  there, with the crowd really into it -- well it was
  good, dammit. 

  I have to say that this year's touring has been our
  best yet. I hope that a lot of you have had a chance
  to experience it with us.  And that a lot more of you
  will still be able to, on down the road...

Topic: Fuji re-webcast

The Fuji Rock festival people are running webcasts of performances from the festival. Apparently they're planning a webcast of Crazy Horse's performance there. I don't know whether it is the same as the original partial webcast or not. Probably not complete. But much better than nothing. :-)

You can find details of the webcast, which is scheduled for this Saturday, August 18, here.

I'm looking forward to searching for myself going nuts, on my PC screen. :-)

Topic: Fuji on Satellite TV

BBC Choice channel has a show from the Fuji Rock festival that Neil played in Japan, coming up this weekend. It airs on Saturday evening at 9pm GMT. Don't know if Neil will be on, or if he nixed the TV cameras (as he did the webcast). Sounds like it's worth the watching even sans Neil.

Topic: No double booking

Pearl Jam and REM will play in Seattle on Monday, October 22nd, not the 21st as I previously reported. So there is no conflict with the Bridge School Benefit Concert. I could swear that GroundWork2001.org had the 21st up yesterday morning, but it now shows the 22nd.
