So as an ol' dog myself part of me says "do what you want, enjoy."
I can always look away.
Another part of me says "damn man maybe it is time."
I saw Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull on their 50th anniversary tour and it was bad.
I can only wonder what it might be like to be a successful long term recording artist.Does anyone think self reflection is important? Merely the fact that one likes what they do doesn't necessarily make it worthy. Of course no one has to buy it. I just find it odd that as fine a musician as Neil Young is/was has lost his discernment. But again this is just my opinion.
He was a mainstay for my crowd and me in the 70s and 80s. Poetry put to music.I can only wonder what it might be like to be a successful long term recording artist.
He’s been that since he was 20.
Probably a multi-millionaire since then, too.
That has got to be where his chutzpah comes from.
He’s been proven right most of the time, too.
He was only in Buffalo Springfield for a couple of years, and has primarily been a solo artist ever since.
The C,S,N,&Y thing was a half-hearted collaboration at best, IMO.
I am charmed mostly by his songwriting.
Long may he run!
Where have I heard that before?
THIS Is when it was time to stop.
I loved Trans as well. I don't like every album he has made, but I like enough of them to look forward to hearing what he is up to lately. I think the last one that I really liked was Americana, and that was ten years ago now.I loved "Trans". I'm probably the only one who connected with that one.
Saw BB King not too long before he died.
What occurred to me, as he was brought up to the microphone in a wheelchair, is that he was carrying on (at least in part) for his support staff, his employees and such.
Long time NY fan, but it’s become difficult to recognize any differences between one release to the next.
