"Neil Young is descended from the Gods"
So when we came across this line that "Neil Young is descended from the Gods" on a BBC blog by Steve Lamacq, we were quite amused. Until we realized that it was linked to Thrasher's Wheat?!
Just for the record, we've never, ever said that "Neil Young is descended from the Gods." He is God. ;) Or maybe he's just a healer? OTOH, he just might have an hotline to the great spirit in the sky. Irregardless, show me the way and I'll follow you someday.
But seriously, Steve's blog is quite an amusing read.
What's impressive though, aside from the sometimes distorted, disaffected sound he wrings from his guitar, is the vengeance still etched across his face. His contorted expressions, relayed rather scarily on the big screens either side of the stage, reveal a man still haunted and unsettled by the emotions of his own songs. I even get quite cosy with the fact that he can't end a song without three minutes of re-iterating what he's just done for the past eight. He is Neil Young. He is Premier League. He can showboat as much as he likes.
