Le Noise

Nobody plays distorted guitar in the absence of Crazy Horse the way Neil Young does it – Long May He Run.

    This may not be a popular thing to say, but I have never liked Neil Young – not in the 60s, not ever. However, the one thing I DO like and have always liked about him is his absolutely demented approach to the electric guitar.

    Yes, Barry, nobody plays distorted electric guitar the way Neil Young does it. The poetry in his dark lyrics combine perfectly with the dark chords he plays in this movie to create artifact of our strange and troubled times. Leave it up to Neil Young to nearly kiss the angel of death, then come back with music like this. Bravo.

    This is a sin, and you will go to hell, right around the corner from Ben Watson’s kitchen!

    I saw Neil at the Kalvøya festival in 1993 (20 years after Zappa played there). I tell you – he almost saved the world there and then. You could feel the benign global waves streaming out from the epicentre of Neil’s right hand when he attacked his guitar for the solo in All Along The Watchtower. (Not his song, I know.)

    Eddie Vedder was sitting on the side stage digging it, by the way. I can’t remember if Pearl Jam were playing before or after old Young.

    So, yes, you’r etotally out of line, Johnny! (Glad you like his guitar molesting, though. Have you heard the soundtrack for Dead Man?)

    Dark Clothes sends his regards.
