I've got tickets to see Neil Young and Crazy Horse this coming Monday with my dad. Neil is the patron saint of DadsRecords.net. He's my dad's favorite artist and one of my favorite too. Needless to say, I'm pretty excited about this.
So, in honor of Neil and my dad, this week is going to be to NEIL YOUNG WEEK on DadsRecords.net. That means all Neil, all the time. At least until Monday. Consider yourself warned.
I just finished Neil's autobiography, Waging Heavy Peace, and one thing that he kept repeating was, "you can't tame the Horse." Basically saying that when working with Crazy Horse, Neil cannot dictate where things are going. Instead, he must follow the muse. This probably accounts for their recent album, Psychedelic Pill, leading off with a track that's over twenty-seven minutes long. And probably has something to do with the almost seventeen minute "Ramada Inn."
I'm sure we'll hear a lot of the new album, but I'm confident there'll be some old ones in there too.
