Neil Young Cover - August, 2016
(Click photo to enlarge)
Neil Young is on the cover of the new issue of Uncut magazine, dated August 2016 and thanks to the good folks there, we have a few copies to giveaway in a contest. Details below.
Young is on the cover, and inside he discusses his time on the planet, his new live album Earth and his future. “I don’t guarantee anything,” he tells Uncut's Jaan Uhelski in Malibu Canyon.
Meanwhile, Stephen Stills, Graham Nash and Promise Of The Real pass judgement on the current state of their capricious friend. “Where do I think Neil is at this point in his life?” says Lukas Nelson. “I think this is where the space ship is taking off in ‘After The Gold Rush’.”
“I’m the same as I was,” says Young. “I know what I want and I won’t accept less… I still do see the vista. I feel good. That’s my way of knowing that I can still continue. There’s no reason to not continue, because I can still see where I’m going. Can’t see it clearly, but I know it’s out there.”
has discussed the future of Crazy Horse
in an exclusive interview in the new issue of Uncut
, out now and available in shops and digitally
In the feature, the songwriter, who released a new live album Earth last week – read Uncut Magazine review here – explains that his oldest group are still a going concern.
“Crazy Horse is still out there,” he explains. “There still is a Crazy Horse. Billy [Talbot] is doing great. Playing with them? That’s in the future, we’re all lucky.”
Currently, Young is performing with Promise Of The Real. “They’re an unbelievable band,” he enthuses. “They go as far as I want to go. They don’t have to be taught anything. They already know it. They know the same things I know, they speak the same language. They are the real deal.”
Discussing ‘making peace’ with the tragic death of early Crazy Horse guitarist Danny Whitten in 1972, Young denies that, for him, the loss is resolved.
“I don’t have to make peace with anything,” he says. “Danny’s unresolved. Such a great waste. Sad. But not resolved. Everybody has ghosts like that. It’s part of life. It’s ok. Just have to let them be. Some things you can’t change. You don’t want to try to change, but they’re everywhere. There’s no escaping them.”
Also in the extensive cover interview, Young discusses his live album Earth
, the future of his music and the state of the planet, while old friends and collaborators including Stephen Stills
and Graham Nash
pass judgement on the current state of Young.
