Rolling Stone Interview with Neil Young
Rolling Stone has an online audio interview with Neil Young on a variety of subjects. Young discusses the main difference between the students of the ’60s, who rabidly protested the Vietnam War, and the apathetic students of the ’00s:
“It’s more important for them to get a job than it is to worry about the war. Because the economy is in shambles. Because no one is coming to the campuses and taking them over to Iraq. But as soon as they start doing that, you’ll see everything change immediately. It would be like night and day. These students are ready to rock — but nobody’s pushed the button.”
The posting is also attracting a few Neil-bashers but Neil fans are fighting back.
