I was on my way to work and looking for a radio station to listen to.

As I was flipping past the local FM rock station (that I usually never listen to), I heard something that sounded familiar. I went back and it was Neil Youngs acoustic "Out of the Blue/Into the black" from Live Rust.

I thought to myself..."What is THIS station doing playing something good? They usually never do that."

Then, when it was over, they went seamlessly into "The Needle and the damage done."

Then it started to dawn on me. Two Neil Young acoustic songs in a row. Both refer to someone dying.

Oh no. Not Neil. Neil Young has died.

He has pretty much been "1B" after the ABB's "1A" for me for over 30 years now.

You talk about ((((RELIEF))))) when I found out it was just a tribute in honor of his birthday!

"D"

Hey D, I know what you mean about the scare. I have done the same thing, wondered and worried about an artist if I hear more than one song of theirs throughout the day, or two grouped together. We have 'Two for Tuesday' deals here on some stations, so my heart starts beating regularly again when I realize what day it is....

Glad to hear Neil is a year older! And still with us!!!!

great article--this follows his earlier mention of Neil Young in his album(a classic) Time Out of Mind on the song(20 minutes or so of brilliant poetry,phrasing & emotive singing & a great band)--"Highlands"

Thanks alot,Angela

You're welcome. Sometimes I do come across good things to pass along on the net. :-) Saw it on the Philzone and thought it was very sweet that the best living song writer of the past 7 decades appreciates the other best living song writer of the last 7 decades.

I'm gonna see Bob on November 21st. I can't wait.

My sis and an old friend just saw him last week, Angela (for their 32nd and 31st times respectively ) and they really enjoyed the show. I shared this article with both of them and they loved it! Hope you have a great show - let us know what you think!

LOL. Yeah Bob is winning my heart over, MFG LOL.

Thanks Deb. I really am very excited about seeing him. I can't say I ignored his music totally becasue he really had all the hits when I was a young person listening to popular music back in the late 60's and early 70's but I couldn't get into him because of his voice. For many years I really had a somewhat rigid framework about voice and what I thought was good and what I thought was just ok. It really prevented me from opening up to his music. But now after hearing so many Grateful Dead singers I can say I am cured of that rigidity. When I went up to Minnesota last summer for the 10,000 Lakes festival I figured it was time to give Bob a more serious listen. So taking a drive up Highway 61 I did just that. Needless to say I have been a convert ever since and I can't get enough of him. Recently I bought about 25 of his commercial releases and have listened to most of them at least three times. It's been a long time since I wanted to get everything that an artists has produced. I think I have about 20 or 30 more cds to go. I've heard some live shows on discs too. His recent stuff is barely tolerable in audience recordings, but I have a feeling he will be better live and in person on the 21st. I also was a dvd of him with the Rolling Thunder Review and suspect that was probably some of his best live material.

Man, sometimes I wish I could go back in time. I could kick myself for not paying more attention to music all those years in school 1977-85. I missed a lot. I think I was afraid of becoming a drug addict or an unmarried woman with five kids. Around the time I was 20 - 21 I started working in a head shop in the village and even though the punk scene was literally down the block, I just focused on getting some education because I really don't think I would have made it if I pursued my love for music at that time. That is truly the context of my passion for music at this time. It may have taken me 25 years to get to it, but I am (maybe) where I should have been all long.

Ang, who you are is the path you take. I think it's wonderful that you are pursuing your music passion NOW and agree with what you've said about your journey.
