The Barn story revisited

more BarnAlthough the “More Barn” story has been repeated countless times it’s worth retelling for all the new Neil Young fans.

The story is brought to life again by Graham Nash in his new book: “Wild Tales: A Rock & Roll Life.” 

As Nash tells it, Young introduced his classic 1972 album “Harvest” to his friend in a “Big” way. Nash recently told the story to Terry Gross on her NPR show “Fresh Air.”  (click to listen to the interview)

Dan Coleman shares this great story on his blog: Open Culture. Nash calls Young the “strangest of my friends.”

Nash says: “The man is totally committed to the muse of music. And he’ll do anything for good music. And sometimes it’s very strange. I was at Neil’s ranch one day just south of San Francisco, and he has a beautiful lake with red-wing blackbirds. And he asked me if I wanted to hear his new album, ‘Harvest.’ And I said sure, let’s go into the studio and listen.

“Oh, no. That’s not what Neil had in mind. He said get into the rowboat.”

Nash says Young has two faucets: “Hot and cold”

In an interview with Hillel Italie of The Associated Press that appeared in the Calgary Herald, Nash said: ““I love him to death. I’ll make music with him for the rest of my life, but he’s a very selfish man. Part of me admires the fact that he has the strength to follow his muse, but he doesn’t realize that there are other people involved in this world.”

Italie writes: “Few were so profoundly changed by rock ‘n roll and the 1960s as Nash, a child of working class, Second World War-era Britain who first became a star as a grinning harmony singer for the Hollies and, just as he feared he was locked into a life of screaming teenagers and two-minute love songs, let his hair down as part of Crosby, Stills and Nash.”

The article goes on to state that  Young is the book’s enigma and fatal attraction,. Nash sees his time with Young as a “long, strange trip” with a man whom he regards as having a heart with two faucets: hot and cold.

One tale from the cold side: Young’s memoir, Waging Heavy Peace, which came out in 2012.

“My ego got in the way,” Nash said during the interview when asked about the book. “When he talked about his wife’s dog more than he did about me and Stephen and David it pissed me off. I’ve made music with Neil Young for 40 years and I don’t deserve a better mention than as an appendage to his dog?”
