Young thought Florence Welch was a man

Flroence Welch & Neil at GrammysIn an interview with Rolling Stone, Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine talks about her performance at the Bridge School Benefit last year and how Neil Young told her that he thought she was a man.

According to the story written by Patrick Doyle, Welch said:

“Yeah. He’s got such incredible energy. He said that when he first heard my record, he thought that I was a man with a high voice [laughs]. He was like, ‘I live in the mountains. I don’t know much media. I just thought you were a man called Florence.’ And I was like, ‘Hey, that’s pretty punk.’ ” I was like, “Thanks, Neil. Thank you so much.”

Crosby talks CSNY 1974 live package, maybe tour?

 David Crosby talks to Rolling Stone about his upcoming tour, a possible CSNY 1974 live package, and wonders about a CSN&Y tour, after a stint at the recent Bridge School concert turned out “so good.”

 The group played their first gig since 2006 at the Bridge School Benefit in late October. Did Young bring up the possibility of a tour at any point?

According to the RS interview:  “No,” says Crosby. “He was, as usual, concentrating on the music. But you know Neil, he’s got his antennas up. He is paying attention. He may not look like it, but he is. The shows felt really good, so that bodes well. We have no idea though. I stress that. I repeat that. We have no idea.”

Crosby goes on: ” It would be nice to know sometime soon, but I can’t torture myself about it . . . I would dearly love for it to happen, but it’s not up to me. I’m not in charge. I do think there is more music to be made, really good music. I love it when it’s just the four of us onstage with acoustic guitars, a piano and a pump organ. That’s because it becomes all about the songs. It really strips it all down.” 

 Crosby is convinced that the long-awaited box set from their 1974 reunion tour will finally come out.

“It should come out in March or April, something like that,” he says. “It got pushed back for good reason. We’re gonna put a DVD with it. We have pieces from about eight separate shows.” There is a complete film of their tour-closing marathon show at London’s Wembley Stadium, but don’t expect that to make it onto the package. “Nope,” says Crosby. “We were a little too jittery that night.”
