Neil Young.

Postby nietzsche on Sat Mar 31, 2012 3:21 am

I just discovered him.

I wasn't born in an English Speaking Country so many of the books you all have read, old movies you have watched, awesome rock music that you've hear I have been discovering little by little thanks to the Internet.

This guy is awesome.

Better than awesome. Very close to Dylan.

One of Canada's greatest performers. I have seen him live a couple of times.

His lyrics are awesome too.

YES!! Neil Young is absolutely one of my all time favorite musicians ever! He is SO good! So good it hurts. After the Gold Rush is my favorite album of his, Harvest is good to, also his stuff with Crazy Horse, and the songs he did with Crosby Stills and Nash are amazing. Really there's so much good stuff that if you start digging you can't lose.

Neil's great! I love his music and I hope he's around for a long long time,
but he's no Bob Dylan*. THIS SHOW is definitely worth tracking down...
and here's a few live clips from a Toronto show back in 1971.

*Neil is Neil is Neil.

YES!

That is a great album, I remember as a kid being in the car with my dad listening to this album whilst driving in the rain and shouting NO RAIN NO RAIN NO RAIN NO RAIN! I've seen him live before in Hyde Park and he is was great there too:

Harvest is one of the few albums I keep going back to over the years. It's never been even slightly tiring, and it always feels like I'm hearing something new. Good call, I was due a re-listen.

Interesting, I was kind of the other way round. Needle and the Damage done was the first song of his I heard. Loved it, but now it seems, well certainly not a bad song, not by a long shot, but kind of one of his simpler songs. It got me in to Neil Young, and I still like it a lot anyway. It's kind of like Knockin' on Heavens Door for Dylan with me.

My FAVE-O-RITE artist, period. I have every album he's done and have seen him in concert 11 times. Absolutely phenomenal artist.....very interesting guy too (although I hate his political views....lol). Have several dvd's on him re: real life and this is one serious dude - my buddy got to shake his hand at a pop machine one time....surprised the hell out of him....lol

One of my very favorite tunes is off Trans, his venture into the cumputer age back in the 80's....awesome tune



Best concert I ever saw was the Weld tour.....freaking rocked......if this doesn't make you bang your head, you're freaking dead......lol



Thanks for the thread :D

ps - Neil and Dylan have nothing in common....come on :lol: Dylan's counterpart is Arlo Guthrie (who I am going to see again on Wednesday)....

Love Arlo... got to see him in a perfect setting about 10 years ago. All his music and storytelling was nothing short of fabulous. He's not Dylan's counterpart, but his dad was certainly an inspiration. I've only managed to catch Neil Young once and that was with Crosby, Stills & Nash and I drove a long ways to be there.

Neil and Bob share a creative energy that has always driven them forward.

Ahhh....energy......well Neil has that in spades....can't stand Dylan so I don't know :lol: I was simply saying Dylan / Arlo = Folk genre and Arlo indeed has it in his blood ;o) This will be my 10th Arlo concert!

Not wanting to go too off-topic, but if you like Young and Dylan you might like Nick Drake:

Pink Moon is a fav Nick Drake LP and it freaked me out a bit when ATT used one of his songs in their ads a year or so ago.

KoolBak, pigeon holing Bob Dylan as folk genre just means you don't know his music.

Those are some of the hits. They are great, but I really like Alabama. And Words(between the lines of age), I can listen to that over and over. I love the way he makes the guitar sing during the jams.
