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!”

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.

Neil bopped down Yonge Street. Very thin, very tall, with a greased-back D.A. on the sides but a crew cut on top. He had a transistor radio, white bucks, a nice sweater, black pants. Very slick-lookin’ guy.
