Neil Young is one of those rare artists that are one of a kind.

An absolute genius of a word smith and truly one of the most VERSATILE musicians on earth.

Who else can bang a Les Paul with Crazy Horse and in the same breath sing "Pardon my heart".

If you don't "get him"....you really owe it to yourself to listen to his early stuff. (please?)

"I am a child" with Buffalo Sprongfield is one of the greatest songs ever written.

LISTEN TO THE LYRICS.......IF YOU'RE A 20 or 30 something dude, even now....you'll freak.

"You're such a stupid girl....LAH LAH LAH LAH LAH LAH LAH LAH"

Thumbs up Neil Rocks

I have listened to Neil Young since he first came on the bar scene. I really saw something then and I STILL see something now. Perhaps it is because I am Over 50 yrs. young, but I'll just "Keep on rockin' in the Free world!"

Hey,

Thinking about it, I happen to like 1 hit wonders !! Even 1 album wonders!

Oooops, I guess I just like MOST music,
As I sit here Humming 867-5309 while I shop Fleabay for Old Muddy Waters Records not yet in my collection,

I think back to the late 60's and early 70's in one of my early garage bands playing many great Neil Young songs.

These days to be a 1 hit wonder, All you need is a bootleg copy of acid pro, A few loops and the 7 dirty words not allowed on TV with " Kill Whitey" sandwiched in.

Somebody told me that's music also, And I suppose that's somewhat true, But, I wont go out of my way to put people down that actually like it.

I think this is a generation gap thing. Every 20 years or so pop music repeats itself (for example mid-late '70 bands like Roxy music using sounds of the '50s and shows like Happy Days.) As there wasn't quite 20 years between early Elvis and early Neil Young, those that like one don't usually like the other. However, it explains Neil's work with Pearl jam in the early '90s and subsequent popularity with a new generation.

Now Elvis' work from the '70s, take Aloha From Hawaii: a drugged-up, slurred and forgotten lyric, sequin-fest. I suppose it IS better to burn out than to fade away, neither of which has Neil shown any signs of doing (Greendale aside).

I don't think anyone has problem with one-hit wonders. Most of my favorite artists are no-hit wonders. I don't rate artists by sales.

What I, and I guess other people, get hung up on is that somebody with virtually no peers in popular music is called overrated. But, yes, it's virtually impossible to talk about artists this way. "After the Gold Rush" and "Everybody's Rockin'" are masterpieces for all I care. The former was a big hit and is considered a classic. The latter did poor business and nobody cares about it today. They are equals, yet not.

Neil: Another fine Canadian. Loved him since I was a child and came to the realisation that Anne Murray was not the best of Canadain music.

I think that there should be a legal limit on tassles, say two feet maximum.

So, up until your discovery of Neil Young, Anne Murray was in your estimation 'the shizzle'?

It was tight between her and Gordon Lightfoot.
