Thanks Frank! Looking forward to your review and blog on meeting Neil backstage.
In the meantime, over on It's Not The Band I Hate, It's Their Fans by Bob:
"Well it turns out that my prediction that Friday night's Neil Young show at the ACC would be the concert event of the year was 100% accurate as both Neil and Wilco put on a show that will go down in the annals of personal concert going history as nothing short of legendary.
Although he was quite far away from me, the unmistakable frame of Mr. Young was obvious, and as he wailed away to Love And Only Love on, what I believe was his classic Les Paul, I knew that this night was going to be special. Prior to this show, I only half understood why the term 'Godfather of Grunge' had been appointed to him. However, seeing him rock out all hunched over while his guitar made that familiar high pitched whirr that will forever be associated with only this one man made it obvious to me as to how he has been able to influence an entire generation of plaid wearing angsters. The level of hard rockin' euphoria continued to escalate with each passing song, culminating in Cortez The Killer and Cinnamon Girl, which had even the people in my crappy section plugging in their air guitars and putting on a little performance of their own. Cortez The Killer was the best performance of the night in my opinion; chill inducing to say the least."
Thanks Bob and for h/t of the CW pix! So, how does Frank Y. get these shots??? Incredible.
