Neil Young featured on new Bachman song “Little Girl Lost”

Bachman Heavy BluesWeeks after announcing his new “Heavy Blues” Randy Bachman has unveiled the title track — a guitar-heavy number that lives up to its name with assistance from special guest Peter Frampton, according to Ultimate Classic Rock.

The song list includes Neil Young featured on song 4 “Little Lost Girl.”

UCR writer Jeff Giles says Bachman’s new project began with a conversation between Bachman and his friend Neil Young, who spurred him to dig deeper for his next solo effort.

Bachman said:  “He said, ‘Take some advice. Don’t do the same old crap and call it something new.’ I said, ‘What do you mean?’ He said, ‘Don’t do the same thing and say it’s a new album … Stop, get out of the box, do something fearless, be fierce, be ferocious, reinvent yourself.’ And I go, ‘OK, great advice.’”.

In addition to Frampton and Young, Bachman’s joined on ‘Heavy Blues’ by Joe Bonamassa and Robert Randolph, and makes use of an archival performance from the late Jeff Healey. The album isn’t scheduled to arrive in U.S. stores until April 15, but it’s available for pre-order now.

R.S.’s Greene revisits “Alabama”

Ronnie-Van-Zant-Neil-YoungRolling Stone’s Andy Greene posted a flashback to 1977 when Neil Young covered “Sweet Home Alabama,” just weeks after Lynard Skynard’s tragic plane crash.

Green wrote: (According to legend, Ronnie Van Zant was buried in a Tonights the Night T-shirt, though this remains a hotly disputed topic.) Just weeks after the accident, Young played a show in Miami to raise money for a children’s hospital. Near the end, he played a medley of “Alabama” and “Sweet Home Alabama” as a tribute to the band. There’s no video, but you can hear an audience tape right here.

Young has not played “Alabama” a single time since that night. “‘Alabama’ richly deserved the shot Lynyrd Skynyrd gave me with their great record,” Young wrote in his 2012 book, Waging Heavy Peace. “I don’t like my words when I listen to it today. They are accusatory and condescending, not fully thought out, too easy to misconstrue.”

Young says Pono is a “Movement”

NeilYoungCESNeil Young’s high-definition audio startup Pono just started selling its Pono player, but he told an interviewer  (with a great accent) at CES in Las Vegas  that he sees Pono getting out of the hardware business sooner rather than later.

Pono is “A Movement,” Young says.

“I know when I listen to it, it makes me feel great.”

 

Bradley Cooper plays air guitar to “Down by the River”

 

 

Bradley CooperThis has certainly been making the rounds in the Neil Young community.

Actor Bradley Cooper performs on  ‘The Tonight Show,’ playing air guitar to a Neil Young classic while wearing an Afro wig.

The whole thing happened thanks to host Jimmy Fallon, who not only outfitted Cooper with his ridiculous headgear — in honor of Cooper’s 40th birthday on Jan. 5 — but fed him a question about how the actor has “a little” musical talent.

As it turns out, that talent only goes as far as the air guitar, and Cooper’s mastery of the invisible instrument is mainly centered around his prowess when fake-playing the solo to Young’s ‘Down by the River.’

“Neil Young’s guitar solos are all sort of off, and oddly,” Cooper laughed to Fallon. “So the fact that some kid was memorizing it … it’s something to memorize how to play, but just to air guitar it? It’s so meaningless!”

Merry Christmas, Xmas, Ymas

xmas-NeilDear BNB followers,

We wish you all a great fest and thanks for being here. Also many thanks to the BNB team that makes all this possible.

It’s been a  Neil Young year of change — many awards, a European tour finished up with Rick Rosas,(unfortunately Rick’s sudden passing this year), two new albums “A Letter Home” and “Storytone,” a solo acoustic tour, a new book “Special Deluxe,”  Neil’s activism, and numerous guest appearances, a new girlfriend and pending divorce from his wife of 36 years….so many Zumans and Neil fans meeting around the world.

Personally there has been the loss of The Baron, our leader on BNB and HH, and the resurrection of all he created by his dear friend Albert, the Lighthouse, with a little help from friends.

Have a peaceful outcome of this year and a colorful outlook for next year, 2015.

We’ll be back

and there will always be comets in the sky….
