“Old Man” rap cover

By RedLight King: ” Musically, Something For The Pain blends these pensive musings with a decidedly rock sound punched with rhythmic undertones. “Old Man”, the first single from the upcoming CD is not a cover but rather was written as an ode to his own father while paying homage to musical icon Neil Young’s song of the same name and, for the first time ever, contains an approved sample of Young’s original song. Done with great respect, the song carries a deeply personal message with a thoroughly modern and original twist.”

From Yahoo-new-music:

Music icon Neil Young is notorious for resisting the use of his work by others. He has steadfastly–and somewhat refreshingly–avoided any commercial use or sampling of his vast catalog. He even wrote a song about his views called “This One’s For You.”

So it comes as a surprise that Young has given the go-ahead to Redlight King, a little-known rock group whose song “Old Man” heavily references Neil’s original from 1972.

In a brilliant story of perseverance, the band managed to get the track to the source of the matter after all other options were exhausted. His managers, lawyers, and everyone in-between had initially denied the request. Yet after the song was passed to Neil himself, usage was approved for what became the ultimate personal stamp of approval.

Random Quote

Neil Young\'s new musical novel - it\'s far too linear and literal to be called a concept album - is underproduced, overconceived, and equal parts annoying, intriguing, and gratifying. In other words, vintage Neil Young.
