One of the greats... just stumbled across this, and had seen clips, but not the whole thing. Rock solid.

And on the other end of the Neil spectrum, I present to you one of my absolute favorite live performances by him, or anybody. Video quality is utter shit, but still: this is a historical record.

Saturday Night Live - 9/30/1989. Before the performance, Neil worked out with a personal trainer to ramp himself up to peak levels of intensity, as if he had just played a 2 hour show.

YOUNG: 'Yeah, well I was. I don't like TV. Never have. It always sucks and there's nothing you can do about it. You can't just walk on and do 'Rockin' in the Free World,' or you'll look like a fuckin' idiot. To perform that song the way it's supposed to be performed you have to be at peak blood level, everything has to be up, the machine has to be stoked. To do that I had to ignore Saturday Night Live completely. I had to pretend I wasn't there.'

Thank you for posting that bbc video.

I give most the money in our bank accounts to have been at one of those shows.


Old man take a look at my life
I'm a lot like you
I need someone to love me
the whole day through

Gets me every damn time.

Where the eagle glides ascending
There's an ancient river bending
Down the timeless gorge of changes
Where sleeplessness awaits
I searched out my companions,
Who were lost in crystal canyons
When the aimless blade of science
Slashed the pearly gates.

It was then I knew I'd had enough,
Burned my credit card for fuel
Headed out to where the pavement turns to sand
With a one-way ticket to the land of truth
And my suitcase in my hand
How I lost my friends I still don't understand.

Fuckin' NEIL

Right? Neil of any era is gold, but man... 70s Neil - forget it.

I'd also put "I Am A Child" in that same ballpark as "Old Man" and "Heart of Gold", and would submit "Long May You Run" is damn close too.
