Uncut Magazine Puts Neil on The Cover

uncut-mag-cover-12-2004-old uncut-mag-cover-12-2004-young

UPDATE 11/10/04: A comment is posted below indicating that the original info below on the Uncut interview is incorrect. Thrasher's Wheat report came from a BNB post which appears may be inaccurate. Since the issue is not actually out yet, it is hard to say exactly what the article includes. From the comment : "The Neil interview in Uncut is with Nigel Williamson and took place in mid-Oct 2004, not 1992." More comments below. Please keep those corrections and updates coming! Thanks!
***
On the cover of this month's Uncut magazine, Neil Young is featured not once but on two different cover versions. One could be called the "young Young" (below) cover and the other the "old Young".

The article is titled "The Classic Songs & Secret Histories" and focuses on the upcoming Greatest Hits album scheduled to be released Nov. 14.

Surprisingly, the Uncut article provides more background detail than the actual CD release itself. With recording location information and brief descriptions of the songs, the article captures Neil's personal recollections on the era and provides context for his career evolution.

In the exclusive interview, Neil tells writer Nigel Williamson about blazing the electric guitar interplay between Young and Crazy Horse's Danny Whitten (who died of a heroin overdose in 1972) on "Cowgirl In the Sand":

    "Nobody played guitar with me like that. That rhythm, when you listen to "Cowgirl In the Sand" he [Danny] keeps changing. Billy and Ralph will get into a groove and everything will be going along and all of a sudden Danny'll start doing something else. He just led those guys from one groove to another, all within the same groove.

    So when I played those long guitar solos, it seemed like they weren't all that long, that I was making all these changes, when in reality what was changing was not one thing but the whole band. Danny was the key. A really great second guitar player, the perfect counterpoint to everything else that was happening."

More on "Cowgirl In the Sand".

This is incorrect and a most sloppy piece of reporting The Neil interview in Uncut is with Nigel Williamson and took place in mid-Oct 2004, not 1992. The only piece by Allan Jones in the mag is his regular monthly 'Stop Me If You've Heard This One Before' column.

No, poster, I don't think the article is incorrect. It is a misunderstanding. I went to B&N to get the UNCUT issue described, but could only find the OCTOBER issue with REM on the cover. This issue DOES have an article in it about Neil, his thoughts on GREENDALE and making films. It also has some neat photos. The issue Thrasher is talking about isn't out yet in the USA.

No, it is totally incorrect. The story says:
Neil Young is featured with an exclusive interview by Allan Jones -- from 1992?! Says Neil:
"Success categorizes you. Luckily, I haven’t had that much success."

This quote is from the interview conducted by Neil with Nigel Williamson in Oct 2004 after the Vote for Change dates. It appears in the Dec issue of Uncut and has noting to do with Allan Jones interviewing Neil in 1992!

the piece you refer to about Neil's films is by Adam Sweeting and appeared two if not three months earlier.
