After Berlin – 50th Anniversary Of The Berlin Wall


at the occasion of the 50th anniversary of building the Berlin wall, we found this brilliant cover version of “After Berlin” by Bozzrock:


After Berlin – 50th Anniversary Of The Berlin Wall from Roland Schaller on Vimeo.


Roland says: “Some impressions of the Berlin Wall in 1961 and 1989. These pics should never be forgotten! I hope such political madness will never come back to Europe. The song “After Berlin” is an old Neil-Young-Song, interpreted by Bozz Rockband in 2010 live at the Rock-The-Garden-Festival. bozzrockband.de

It’s a stunning documentary. Never to forget that we have to stand up and fight against dogmatic willpower, tyranny, dictatorship and the like.

Thankfully, the wall has been torn down since and people could reunite. There should be no more walls forever.

Take me take me take me just the way I am…

AFTER BERLIN
Just like a young boy running down the road
I'm singing out the same old song
Can't go back the way I started from
The road goes on and on
Won't you help me, help me, help me, help me,
Help me, help me, help me, help me,
Make my way on home
Help me make my way on home
After Berlin.

Lights are shining in the German sky
Clouds make walls between the moon and I
Don't know where I started from
So won't you take me, take me, take me, take me,
Take me, take me, take me, take me,
Just the way I am
Ah, take me, just the way I am
After Berlin.

I'll be cruising down the corridor
Seeing things I never seen before
Tomorrow morning in old Berlin
Where they lock you out or lock you in
Won't you save me, save me, save me, save me,
Save me, save me, save me, save me,
From the final day
Save me from the final day
After Berlin.

Just like a young boy running down the road
I'm singing out the same old song
I can't go back the way I used to go
The road goes on and on
Won't you help me, help me, help me, help me,
Help me, help me, help me, help me,
Find my way back home
Won't you help me make my way on home
After Berlin.

Help me, help me, help me, help me.
Help me, help me, help me, help me.

10.000 Photos of Neil Young

 

Neil Young CSNY by Henry Diltz

photo by Henry Diltz

update: here are some more examples of Joel Bernstein’s and Henry Diltz’ b/w splendid pictures of Neil: “Henry Diltz and Joel Bernstein: Neil Young“.

You think you know Neil Young, eh?

Nobody knows Neil Young quite like Joel Bernstein.

Bernstein, a respected rock and roll photographer and Young archivist, estimates that he has snapped some 10,000 photos of Young over the years. Bernstein also reckons that he spent “19.5 years – and one day” in his task of archiving Young’s recordings.

“Neil is like a lighthouse beam. He has an incredibly intense focus in a very narrow area to the exclusion of all else,” Bernstein told me one evening last week at a well attended exhibit of photos by Bernstein and Henry Diltz at the Morrison Hotel Gallery.

Neil and Justin Vernon

The Guardian has an interview with Justin Vernon, of Bon Iver, and he says:

“I think the easiest way to explain it is that before, when I had other jobs or whatever, all I ever wanted to do was play music all of the time. So now whenever anything comes along – a Peter Gabriel cover, or recording Hadestown with Anaïs, it’s like yes! Of course! And then you get tired, and you think, ‘Well, I’d better say no to everything from now on.’ But then the Kanye [West] thing happens. Or … Neil Young called two days ago, and I’m almost like: ‘Oh fuck,’ because whatever he’s going to say I’m going to want to deal with, you know?

When you hear his voice, you can imagine that:

Bon Iver performs the song Flume from his album For Emma, Forever Ago live:

In this town

Sharon advised this:

August 6 – Pegi Young at Pabsttheatre.

bh responded:

Won't you be pissed if you don't go?  It's only $15.
Bite the bullet.

R.I.P. Clarence Clemons

CC, a Big Man has left us. We will miss him. Now he plays for that big band above.

some audio:

Clarence Clemons, Bruce & The E Street Band – Jungleland

another one...

and Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen – “All along the watchtower” with a bow to Clarence.

whispers, they are gone… One of the greatest sax solos of all times…
