Neil's Newest Song
Neil Young showed up at a small club in the northeast two nights ago with his wife Pegi's current band. He did a set with them that featured a nice bluesy jamming new song. "Ain't going home to mama..." Rock it, Neil. Nice guitar work. That's Spooner Oldham on keyboards and Rick Rosas on bass, both of whom worked the CSNY 2006 Freedom of Speech tour (among several other recent albums by Neil) which Jennifer and I caught in Atlanta. Find out more here.
CSNY has a long-awaited live release of their 1974 tour which is being delayed for various reasons until 2014, the 40th anniversary of the tour. David Crosby, for one, hopes Neil will meander back toward the historic foursome and tour a bit next year to promote the album's release. That would be awesome but you can never predict what Neil will do next.
Neil is filling in some time since Crazy Horse had to cancel their remaining tour. Neil and the Horse recently ranked Number 5 on Rolling Stone's list of Top 50 Live Acts Right Now. Not too shabby for the 67-year old rocker. Too bad they had to cancel the final leg of their tour. But, as you can see, nothing stops Neil, he keeps on driving...
