Neil continues criticism of KeystoneXL at Farm Aid

Rocker Neil Young continues criticism of Keystone XL at Farm-Aid

Joe Pavia Sep 21, 2013 03:42:22 PM

Neil Young is continuing his verbal assault on the Alberta oilsands.

Young called the oil the dirtiest in the world this weekend at the annual Farm-Aid Concert in Saratoga Springs, New York.

He touched on Fort McMurray while telling a story about a cross-country drive he took in his electric car, bringing up the subject in support of farmers on the front line of climate change.

“The farmer wakes up in the morning and figures out ‘what the hell can I do with this mess now?’” he said. “This fuel is going to be shipped to China and Asia, don’t think this fuel is for America, it’s not.”

“The reason I am talking about that ugly situation is because the farmers again are the solution to the problem.”

Earlier this month, Young compared Fort McMurray to post-apocalyptic Hiroshima.
“They have the dirtiest oil in the world, where the Keystone pipeline is going to originate and cut through our country through our back lawns and through our farms all the way to a free trade zone in Port Arthur, Texas,” Young said.

Premier Alison Redford recently dismissed Young’s criticism, along with those of actor Robert Redford this month, saying it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone and that we need to have a conversation on facts.
“I’ve really got to question how people who are using energy flying on planes can make these sorts of comments and assume that they are going to have any credibility,” Redford said Tuesday.

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

In his new memoir “Wild Tales” Graham Nash recalls

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?”

You gotta keep changing. Shirts, old ladies, whatever, I\\\'d rather keep changing and lose a lot of people along the way. If that\\\'s the price, I\\\'ll pay it. I don\\\'t give a shit if my audience is a hundred or a hundred million. It doesn\\\'t make any difference to me. I\\\'m convinced that what sells and what I do are two completely different things. If they meet, it\\\'s coincidence.
