Neil & Petro Producers did not meet

B821505985Z_1_20140119135831_000_GT215KFDJ_2_Content“It is like a war zone, a disaster area from war, what’s happened up there,” Young told a news conference ahead of his Winnipeg concert.

Thespec.com is reporting that Neil Young did not accept an invitation from a petroleum producers group to meet before his final concert to raise money for opponents of Alberta’s oilsands.

The Hamilton Spectator is located in  Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers issued a statement today (Sunday Jan. 19)  saying it offered to “have a balanced discussion” Young and the chief of a first nation that is fighting oilsands development, according to Thespec.com.

But a representative of Young and Athabasca Fort Chipewyan First Nation Chief Allan Adam offered an alternative that was unacceptable, CAPP said.

“Young’s representative suggested oilsands producers participate in Neil Young’s media conference today, but when CAPP requested a neutral moderator and equal representation, the organizer said this was not acceptable,” the CAPP statement said.

His tour wraps up tonight in Alberta, the province with the most at stake in the debate over the economic and environmental effects of oilsands development.

Young remained unbowed throughout the week of benefit concerts for the Athabasca Fort Chipewyan First Nation and warned on Thursday that Alberta could end up looking “like the moon” if land isn’t preserved.

Neil Young: “You can’t worry about what people think. I never do…” — UNCUT

Neil Young and Crazy Horse were due to return to the UK this week, but have cancelled their European shows after Frank ‘Poncho’ Sampedro reportedly broke his hand. So to salve the disappointment, in this week’s archive feature, from our August 2012 issue (Take 183), Uncut is granted a rare audience with the remarkable Young, busier than ever.

To be discussed: the return of Crazy Horse, Americana and what would become Psychedelic Pill; his autobiography; his new movie; Archives; his family. What motivates an inexhaustible genius? “I spend money as soon as I get it…”

Uncut reviews Year of the Horse

The October 2013 issue of Uncut features a DVD review of  Jim Jarmusch concert documentary “Year of the Horse”  shot in 1996.

Yoth_dvdThey write: “This isn’t older musicians trying to sustain some delusion of youthful potency;  this is a bunch of middle-aged men, led by a surly, stomping guitarist in baggy  knee-length shorts and a nondescript T-shirt.

” But the very lack of  self-conscious stagecraft carries with it the implication that what you’re being  given is something purely musical, unmediated by modern digital strategies that  demand everything be a multi-platform, multi-media, interactive experience. It’s  pure rock’n’roll, as the introductory tagline explain:

“Made loud to be played  loud. CRANK IT UP!”.
It’s far from the ideal Neil and Crazy Horse setlist, Uncut opines,  with only a handful of  classics – including a version of “Tonight’s The Night” following a segment  about the deaths of Danny Whitten and Bruce Berry – sprinkled  parsimoniously through the show.

But it barely matters: as Young maintains,  “It’s all one song,” an ongoing flow of music hewn into eight-to ten-minute  chunks. And any technical effects are kept to a minimum, and used subtly, as  when stage footage of the band playing “Slips Away” is blended with a tour bus  shot of passing sky and landscape.

I\'m a very wealthy person. I\'ve been managed very well. I\'m not greedy to the point that I need to get paid for every little thing I do. I\'m an artist. I should be ***** doing art, not standing up for artists\' rights. We got Sheryl Crow and Don Henley -- it\'s covered. I don\'t have to do it.
