    Great musician, and a great career doing his own thing.

    LOVE electric Neil
    LOVE acoustic Neil

    * I know he is a 'love or hate' performer, but I personally think he is one of the most inspiring guitar players on the planet- solid/consistent/prolific/inventive and knows how to just pull great tone out of a guitar

    It took me a long time to “get” Neil. His unique voice always put me off. And he’s the original Crazy Eyes. But then in my early 30s, a coworker burned me a copy of “Live at Massey Hall” (it had just been released), and the clouds lifted.

    At that point, I became obsessed with Neil. For a solid year, I was downloading every bootleg I could find. Neil, CSNY, Buffalo Springfield... so much great stuff in that musical family.

    Oh yeah, many brews enjoyed on a dirt road watching the moon, and listening to Neil.

    Neil has no pretences, no rhythm and no moves, but dang - he can jam and tell a story, like no other!

    Neil, like Willie and a few other's, does his own thing.

    They're old "road dog's" traveling around the country in the bus, playing their music for us.

    And, imo...

    ya can't beat that!!!

    I’m proud of my 9y/o son for many reasons, but one of the biggest reasons was hearing him say “I love this song. Is that Neil Young?”

    Very cool! A Proud Moment!

    I'm failing with my boys on the Neil Young front.
    This morning, I was force-feeding them Bob Dylan's Freewheelin' album while they were getting ready for school, but my 6 year old changed it to ZZ Top when I wasn't looking. So there's still hope!

    My only question was - who put the puppy uppers in his coffee? I got tired just watching him!

    People bang on about'technique' in music. To my mind, this is about as good an example as you can get of the technique of communicating profound truths through music. Miles would be another like that.

    Compare and contrast the abomination that is the Satriani version of 'Rockin' in the Free World'.

    I've been a fan since Buffalo Springfield. But I wish he and his other former bandmates would get over their petty little feuds and make music together again.

    I'm thinking that what Neil's doing here beats the hell out of jogging or using an elliptical machine...

    Guitar aerobics?
