Got Neil? Contact Thrasher's Wheat

So you've got Neil?

We always love to hear folks' Neil stories, reviews, links, photos, videos, etc.

Here's how to contact us here at Thrasher's Wheat.

But first, it's come to our attention that some folks who have written us never received our reply. It seems that some of our out going mail is ending up in folks junk mail or spam folders.

So if you've written to us and didn't get a reply within 48-72 hours, check your junk mail or spam folders.

Also, we return a lot of mail with requested info and never hear back as to whether useful. Or folks who say they'll share a story, link, photo, video or whatever and we never hear back from them. So please don't ask a bunch of questions promising us stuff that never comes through.

As an fyi, if you are trying to contact Neil Young, we are in no way, shape or form affiliated with Neil's organization. Try his record label, Warner Bros. + Reprise Records.

And if you would like us to answer a question, check the Neil Young FAQ. Or search Thrasher's Wheat (the search box is always in the right sidebar).

If you want to keep up with Neil, here's a few suggestions using Twitter, E-Mail, etc..

We like to hear suggestions too, so drop us an email: (REMOVE "X") (Sorry for hassle but we get too much spam.) If you do write us and don't hear back, check your spam folder first. If still no response, feel free to give us a gentle reminder.

If you have something to say, but don't want to send an email, use the Guestbook for Thrasher's Wheat.

Keep On Rockin' In The FREE World!!!

Hi Guys,
I expect you have been asked this a million times already, but can you please tell me where the place for an exact copy of the white dove strap can be bought from?
I need one badly,
Peace to all

Hi Trhasher, do you know any news about Neil touring in Europe this summer? We read yesterday in a Greek website that he's there on the 9 July at the Rockwave festival with Crazy Horse!!!(as far as we understood in Greek).Is THAT TRUE?

Many thanks to Thrasher for helping me get this Olympic ceremony closing by Neil in perspective. It brought tears to my eyes to see this performance. Great song, sung sincerely by the artist, and offering a most heartfelt close to the event. That is trifecta greatness! Thank you Neil and thank you Thrasher for your role in bringing this event to those of us who missed the event in real time.

I also love Neil Young's music through the decades. I recreated (covered)his Cortez the Killer in my home recording studio (GibbyOMB one man band thing)from his days with Crazy Horse and think I came pretty close to paying tribute. See what you think

I love Neil Young's music through the decades. He is so different. I recreated his classic Cortez the Killer in my home recording studio and think it's does a pretty good job of paying tribute to Neil Young from his Crazy Horse years. See what you think.

I saw csny in cleveland ohio 40 years ago,just after kent state. the stadium was jam packed and no music ever tied together the feelings like neil singing ohio. nothing in my life has ever came close to duplicating the feeling there and never will. i have seen this man play many times and love him like my brother. long may you run. j rose

After listening to the acoustic side of 4 way street and faced with a future of a changing way of life, I cannot help but think that Neil Young represents the peak of creativity and music skill that was a key part of life that is slowly fading into the past....

Why isn't the Trunk Show released on DVD/Blu-ray yet?

I was at the 2nd night of that show at the Tower Theater in Upper Darby, PA and would love to see this on film.

Anyone know what the hold up is? Is there a legal issue? A creative issue? Its been way overdue for release on DVD/blu-ray.

Just want to make sure you've heard the Nils Lofgren interview on World Cafe from January: He talks in detail about meeting and working with Neil.

According to the largest morning paper in Sweden, Dagens Nyheter, Neil and CH will come to Sweden next summer. The article (containing an interview with Neil on Waging Heavy Peace) ends with the words "Fans of Neil won't have to wait long to see him - he and CH will play in Sweden summer 2013".

Hi everyone, I recently got a copy of After the Gold Rush on Vinyl on Reprise Label # MSK 2283 I believe released in 1978 . I had been told the mixes on the songs were slightly different than on other earlier versions of the album. Does anyone have any info they may be able to share?

Could anyone help me get a nice MP3 of "Blowin' In The Wind" from the boxed set? I didn't know it existed and love the album, but don't necessarily want to drop a hundo for one song.

Thank you in advance.

Hi folks

The format of the BBC quiz show 'Mastermind' is that four contestants have to answer two sets of questions each at speed.

With the first set of questions (the specialist subject)contestants must answer as many questions as possible within two minutes.

Contestants then have two and a half minutes on 'general knowledge'.

'Neil Young' was the specialist subject of David Kisilevsky, a retired advertising executive.

See how many questions Mr Kisilevsky got right below. The show was broadcast on January 30:

Just woke up after a journey to see Lukas and POTR last night in Valley Center, CA.
The show was everything I imagined and more. Fantastic, great, inspirational, etc.etc.etc.
To all out there. Go see this show! Lukas blessed us with a nod to Neil by playing an acoustic "I Am A Child" and a blazing, "Cortez." Everything else blew our minds as well!
Thanks Lukas and POTR.

Hi there. I've been off Neil for a couple of years (absence makes the heart grow fonder) and have been trying to find a video on YouTube of him playing A Day in the Life with Peggy on I guess xylophone? Anyone have a link? Thanks on advance.
