Rust Never Gets Old

I don't need to say much to introduce Neil Young. The Canadian loner is simply one of the most important rock songwriter ever, and one of the few musicians of his generation that doesn't seem to have lost much of his energy and inspiration, despite his age. No one is as good as him in playing both intimistic/acoustic perfomances and electric/powerful concerts. So here are two live clips showing both sides of his art. This version of Heart Of Gold, one of his most successful songs, included on the Harvest album, is taken from a 1971 BBC concert. He was only 26 years old and he sang "...and I'm getting old...". 25 years later we meet him at the Phoenix festival with his faithful companions Crazy Horse, for an outstanding version of another classic song: Like A Hurricane. He certainly got older but he's still in great shape.
Now I'm waiting to see him on Jonathan Demme's concert movie Heart Of Gold.

See you next time

ciao Mirco,
confermo, come ti dissi in un commento sul video dei Doors, che mi piace molto il tuo blog e la scelta dei pezzi; purtroppo però ho notato ultimamente che in media per un post su tre, la password non mi funziona, e quindi, niente video
Ho provato ad attendere 24 ore e a riprovare, ma stesso risultato; che si può fare?
in ogni caso, ottimi post !
a presto, Luc

Non so che dire, io per inserire la password faccio copia ed incolla con l' URL del sito e poi controllo sempre che funzioni. Uso winrar che si scarica gratis da internet...
Grazie dei complimenti ma io comincio ad essere un po' stanco, non so quanto continuerà ancora il blog...
A presto.
