Neil Young, others, send message to Obama: Stop the Keystone Pipeline

Now that the Oscars are over, Hollywood is turning its attention to the controversial Keystone XL pipeline.

A slate of actors and musicians, including Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin, Robert Redford, Willie Nelson, and Neil Young called on President Obama on Tuesday to put an end to the oil-sands project once and for all, according to keystone-pipeline

“Rejecting Keystone XL is the kind of the principled choice leaders need to make. There is no way to reconcile this pipeline with a serious climate policy,” the high-profile activists wrote in a letter to the White House signed by more than 100 environmentalists, elected officials, and progressive leaders.

You can sign the letter here: http://350.org/unityletter/

The cadre of celebrities has a history of opposing the pipeline. But the latest Hollywood push arrives ahead of an expected presidential veto of legislation approved by the GOP Congress to build Keystone XL, a pipeline that would haul crude oil from Canada to the Gulf Coast.

Obama’s veto could land as early as Tuesday, after Republicans send the bill to the White House.

Young has said that the record will be released in March on the Third Man Records Label owned by Jack White.
The record is described as: “An unheard collection of rediscovered songs from the past recorded on ancient electro mechanical technology captures and unleashes the essence of something that could have been gone forever…”.
Young previously told Rolling Stone that recording the album was “one of the lowest-tech experiences I’ve ever had”.
A prospective tracklist of the album features Bob Dylan’s ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’, Tim Hardin’s ‘Reason To Believe’, Gordon Lightfoot’s ‘Early Morning Rain’ and Ivory Joe Hunter’s ‘Since I Met You Baby’ as well as ‘Needle Of Death’, originally by the late Bert Jansch

LA Weekly celebrates shows with “Best Album” pick

American-Stars-n-Bars-thumb-500x500“Neil Young Is Coming! This Is His Best Album Ever,” the articled starts out in LA Weekly review.

“When we were good and drunk, we would put Neil Young’s American Stars ‘n Bars on the record player,” writes music critic Kai Flanders. He talks about his favorite  album in celebration of Neil Young’s threeupcoming  shows at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, March 29 and 30, and April 1.

He’s a great storyteller, you will enjoy this one.

“Often, the melancholy waltz of American Stars ‘n Bars would soundtrack our drinking sessions. Stars is Young’s eighth studio album, which came out in 1977 on the heels of Zuma and the Ditch Trilogy. Upon its release Rolling Stone declared, ‘Right now … it would be just about impossible to overrate Neil Young.’ The storied guitar work on “Like A Hurricane” is balanced by the earnest yearning of ‘Hey Babe.'”

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.
