Gov’t Mule does Down by the River at Christmas Jam

Gov't MuleGov’t Mule were joined by plenty of special guests as they paid tribute to Neil Young during Warren Haynes’ 26th annual Christmas Jam at the US Cellular Center in Asheville, North Carolina, according to a report from Jambands.com and Glide Magazine.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Warren Haynes Presents The Christmas Jam is a fundraiser for Habitat For Humanity and  a celebration of a longstanding southern musical community. Announced headliner Vince Gill was forced to back out due to the recent death of longtime backup singer Dawn Sears.

Gov’t Mule treated fans to a very special performance, which saw the group honor Neil Young (as well as Faces and Led Zeppelin) with a number of special guests. The set began with Jackie Greene joining in for takes on Young’s “Cinnamon Girl” and “Tonight’s The Night” before drummer Matt Abt and bassist Jorgen Carlsson put down their instruments for “For The Turnstiles.” Greene stuck around for Young’s “Old Man,” which was then followed by a cover of “Helpless” that featured Jason Isbell and Neal Casal. Next, trombonist Danny Louis took the stage to help Jackie Greene through a solo rendition of “After The Gold Rush” before the band returned for “Cowgirl In The Sand” and “Down By The River.” Greene finally made his exit as Audly Freed and Caleb Johnson appeared for a cover of Faces’ “Stay With Me” that was dedicated to the late Ian McGlagan, and the pair stayed on stage for the take on Led Zeppelin’s “Trampled Under Foot” that brought the show to a close.

The jam was all  played out in front of huge inflatable replica amplifiers made to honor Young’s equipment shenanigans of lore.

No Hidden Path

Neil Rocking Rio 2008Throwback Thursday…

No Hidden Path ….WOW.

Rock In Rio Madrid, Argranda del Ray, Madrid, Spain.  2008.

“How you change, how you change,  how you rearrange everything that touches me.”

Thanks to the HH  German list for the reminder of this gem.

 

 

Rock in Rio is an event originating in Brazil. It is a series of music festivals held in three cities: Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, Lisbon in Portugal and Madrid in Spain. In 2015, Las Vegas will be the fourth.

Five incarnations of the festival were in Rio de Janeiro, in 1985, 1991, 2001, 2011 and 2013, six in Lisbon, in 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014, and three in Madrid in 2008, 2010 and 2012.  In 2011, Rock in Rio returned to its original location, Rio de Janeiro, with a new line-up of singers and groups.

Rock in Rio is one of the largest music festival in the world, with 1.5 million people in the first edition, 700,000 in both the second and fourth editions, about 1.2 million in the third, and about 350,000 people in each of the 3 Lisbon editions.

BNB is Back

“This all starts (again) with you and me.”

 

Rainer-Albert

The Baron & Albert the Lighthouse.

BNB is back up and running, thanks to a team  dedicated to keeping the work of The Baron, and others before him, alive – years of collecting Neil Young-related news.

BNB is a vast warehouse of Neil’s music, tour dates and setlists, videos, reviews, projects, activism, awards, benefits and more.

A lot has happened since our last post in April, 2104.  The Baron (Rainer) left us too soon, on a new quantum journey through the universe. Neil was just finishing up a solo performance in Chicago.

None of us could have known all the changes that were coming.  Neil’s actions since then have drawn a rollcoaster of controversy, debate and differing opinions. Never a dull moment.

Stay tuned. It will take us awhile to catch up. As always send Neil news our way. We welcome critiques and updates from roving reporters.

Drop us a line. We will stand up.

 

 

Neil Young confronts heckler at Dallas show

shutupThis was posted at JamBase:

Neil Young played a two-set solo acoustic show in Dallas April 17, 2014 and towards the middle of the second set Young was telling the story behind his Martin D-28 guitar when an audience member cut him off by repeatedly yelling “Play it!”

“I don’t think I’m going to play it,” Neil said.  “I’m trying to remember the last time I did what somebody told me to do.” Neil continued to get into it with the fans, exclaiming “what is this, a job?” and “How about you talk, and I’ll listen?” He then offered a biting take on “Harvest Moon” after which he noted, “Funny — that song is not supposed to be angry, You get what you demand.”

Take a listen to how it went down:
