I've seen Neil Young in some form or another about 15 times. I'd never seen him as energized as he was this past Monday night in Cleveland on this latest Crazy Horse tour. Michael Heaton of The Plain Dealer reviewed the show, Neil Young and Crazy Horse rock Cleveland State University's Wolstein Center: Review.
And speaking of friends at the show, it felt like a homecoming. Everywhere I looked were old pals. Some I'd seen recently and for others it had been awhile. What is it about Neil Young and the people I gravitate toward? I can't think of many other musical acts that garner such a mutual admiration society amongst my friends and fellow music freaks.
The new Crazy Horse album, Psychedelic Pill, doesn't comes out until October 30. From what he debuted Monday night it'll be much more a treat than a trick. Here's a review from British music magazine Uncut, Neil Young & Crazy Horse: "Psychedelic Pill".
Finally, here's the second song to surface from that album. And just like the first, "Walk Like A Giant", he played it Monday and it's over 15 minutes long.
I read a comment on Facebook wishing he'd played more oldies. Lady, if you want to hear that there's plenty of acts that have nothing new to say, milking fans of nostalgia every summer at places like Blossom.
