Neil Young – Photo of the Week!

Neil Young – Photo of the Week!

Neil Young – Photo of the Week. What can you say about this guy? Well, he definitely beats to own drum when it comes to his music. But, he’s also one of the most influential songwriters and guitarists of his generation. Known for recording such favorites as “Old Man,” “Harvest Moon” and “Heart of Gold.” Why this picture? Well, because it looks like he taking out his angst on the guitar. Which we love! Also he’s known for going against the grain on a variety of things. After writing songs for almost fifty years, you would think he’s take a break but nope! Neil Young & Crazy Horse are recording a new album.

New Crazy Horse Album Arriving!

According to the archives, Crazy Horse recording is under way. The Horse is back in the barn now, shaking off the rust. We have the world’s best crew with us for these sessions! Larry Cragg is tending the instruments and amps, while Jeff Pinn maintains amplifiers and the electronics inside them. Bob Rice is caring for the pianos and other keyboards. Paul Davies is handling of Ralph’s drums. It has been a long time since we have been together and more than a few tears have been shed. We’re so happy to be back in the barn, a barn built to replace the 1850s barn that had collapsed in exactly the same place, high in the mountains of Colorado! It’s an exact replica of the original, built with Ponderosa pines by Ted Moews and his great crew of artisans. It is magic inside.

Mark Humphries is doing our monitors, continuing a near fifty year tradition. Mark notes that this is our “new barn” to replace Plywood Analog on Broken Arrow Ranch, where we did Ragged Glory, Freedom and other albums. These are new times, with new songs and feelings after what our world has been through and continues to face. This music we are making for our souls. It’s like fresh water on a desert. Life is going on. We’ll keep you posted here at NYA regularly. – ny  To hold you over until the album arrives, you can check out Neil Young and Crazy Horse – “Country Home” (Official Live Audio). 

In the meantime, check out the archives – this site is pretty rad!
