    Neil Young 14-11-2011 01:59 PM bsnub His politics are well known assclown.

    So, you didn't know him at all and you base your assumptions on hearsay.

    Profound.

    read his book "waging heavy peace".

    likely late 60's, he moved to california to try and find a band, or some decent gigs....can't remember. anyways, he was still a struggling dirt poor artist.

    he writes were he met this guy and some girls who were with him. strange people, very quiet. he gave the guy his guitar who played and sang some songs, said the guy wasn't too bad.

    guess who?

    charles manson.

    Never heard of them.
    Just like you apparently haven't heard of Todd Rundgren.




    Were they anything like curved air?

    I saw the old Canadian Neil Young at Hyde park, London on Saturday night, He played with Crazy Horse. A fantastic set by them which blew the warm up band, The National - a very poor U2 cover band, back to nursery school - where they belong.

    You had to be heavy into rock and roll guitar to really appreciate Neil Young. He developed a finger pricking style that really good up and coming guitarists had to perfect before they could consider themselves more than journeymen (I never did consider myself more than a journeyman). He also had a mean rock and rock guitar sound when he chose to, Problem usually was he also into folk and country and most fans aren't into every aspect of his repertoire.

    In honor of his birthday:

    Koojo a whiny prick.. sounds about right. Woof! Now I'll get redded..waaa


    I wouldn't say Neil was country, but rock and folk for sure. One of the classic legends imo.

    Great song by the way! Dad and bro's play a mean rendition of that song.

    Heart of Gold and Damage Done mentioned in this thread are my favorites.

    Heart of Gold


    Damage Done



    Other faves include,
    -Harvest Moon
    -Old Man
    -Keep on Rockin'
    -Hey, Hey, My, My (Into the Black)
    -Cinammon Girl
    -Down by the River

    And a more recent tune.. Angry World.

    Bastard Spicks.


    "Cortez The Killer"

    He came dancing across the water
    With his galleons and guns
    Looking for the new world
    In that palace in the sun.

    On the shore lay Montezuma
    With his coca leaves and pearls
    In his halls he often wondered
    With the secrets of the worlds.

    And his subjects
    gathered 'round him
    Like the leaves around a tree
    In their clothes of many colors
    For the angry gods to see.

    And the women all were beautiful
    And the men stood
    straight and strong
    They offered life in sacrifice
    So that others could go on.

    Hate was just a legend
    And war was never known
    The people worked together
    And they lifted many stones.

    They carried them
    to the flatlands
    And they died along the way
    But they built up
    with their bare hands
    What we still can't do today.

    And I know she's living there
    And she loves me to this day
    I still can't remember when
    Or how I lost my way.

    He came dancing across the water
    Cortez, Cortez
    What a killer.
