Do not have time for this. Must make time for this.

Neil Young Archives

Have not done more than dip a toe in, but apparently there's everything there...everything, including home videos of him going through old papers and photos. Not to mention plenty of Grandpa Simpson-style rants, aging hippy that he is.

But damn, he could rock back in the day!

I spent last night going full 90s flashback. Jesus Christ even the pop and light rock songs were great back then. Len, New Radicals, Duncan Shiek, Space Hog. Back then I thought then were blah but compared to today's crap it is absolute magic. Social media and Auto-tune was really the beginning of the end. Holy crap.

He's Canadian.

Didn't make a lot of Southern men (including, famously, some guys from Florida that for some reason wrote a song about Alabama) very happy by pointing out some pretty bad shit has gone on down there.

Yep, pretty much sums up how I feel as a southerner tbh. Blackfoot were a good band, as were Skynyrd I suppose, but the Confederate flag waving nonsense at some point became more a part of it than the music. If we're talking 70s southern rock, they're all playing for very distant second behind the Allman Brothers imo.

The irony of this is that Ronnie Van Zandt and Neil Young were actually friends, and the song was a bit tongue in cheek. They actually supported Young's anti-segregationists views.

Yes, but many of their fans didn't (and don't) see it that way at all. There was an urban legend that Neil was one of RVZ's pallbearers. I wouldn't say they were actually in agreement with Young's views, but they weren't segregationists either. I think the general consensus is that the song's about condescension toward the region by people who have their own dirty laundry (hence the George Wallace and Watergate allusions.)

They actually hated Wallace but I do think they so most of their fellow Southerners in overly flattering light.

Ok, so I am rediscovering the Smiths and trying to work out whether or not Morrissey being a complete prat detracts from their music.

Johnny Marr is one hell of a guitarist, that much is certain. Some of those hooks and that jingle-jangle style of his are magical

Watched the Glastonbury on a Sunday , Kylie wow what a body for a 50+ year old , she was ok , better than Madonna at the Eurovision , but she doesn’t have the hits required to be show stoppers.
Robert Smith , whilst age has taken his svelte figure his voice was really pretty good , and well worthy of being the top appearances at the Farm.
I find it more strange the Groups who never played Pink Floyd, Queen ( and with Brian Mays condemnation of badger culling - I agree with him , doesn’t look they’ll be asked to appear .Black Sabbath The Jam ,Jimi Hendrix and Bananarama ......and yet a 25 year old Stormzy get a headline billing

Watching Glasto last night - that Billie Ellish was amazing, 17 years old, brilliant! I enjoyed Miley Cyrus as well, she has grown up a bit, but to many 'bitches' and 'mother fuckers' for me, one or two adds a bit of edge but she went right over the top.

The only man who could get away with recording the same song twice on the same album (with slight variations, of course).
