Happy season of the spirit of peace and goodwill on earth.

To Zumans and Rusties and all who enjoy Neil Young’s music and his activism, as he tries to leave a lasting imprint on Mother Earth.

Let’s keep on rockin’ in the free world, and help others to do so as well.

“Went looking for faith on the forest floor, and it showed up everywhere. In the sun, and the water, and the falling leaves, the falling leaves of time.”

~N.Y.

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.”

An ‘Old Man” mini-essay

Nice, relaxed read at  “Something Else Reviews”  about Neil Young conversations, getting old and the song “Old Man.”

“Old Man”  peaked at No. 31 in June of 1972

harvest_reprise_recordsWriter JC Mosquito opines about coming across someone who will  “shoot the shit” about Neil. All fans know how great it is to unexpectedly meet someone else who will discuss Neil as a common interest.

He writes: “Of course, sometimes you get seated next to someone who shares no common interests with you whatsoever, which is a whole different problem. But odds are that even this albatross of a human being seated beside yourself probably knows something about Neil Young. And if you can turn the conversation in that direction, odds are that their knowledge is probably centered on the “classic” version of Neil Young as a king of folk-rock Trinitarian god composed of the performer (Neil); his offspring, the #1 album (Harvest); and the intangible yet all pervasive holy spirit of the airwaves, the #1 single (Heart of Gold).

Was Neil always an old man?
