Thrasher -

thanks for posting my videos to your main page. Those videos sat buried on VHS tapes for decades until I finally took the time to convert to DVD (a laborious process to say the least).

I hope your viewers enjoy them as much as i enjoyed making them.

Any interviews with Neil are entertaining, and usually illumnating as to where it all comes from. I still think he'd be a good stand up comic

.."it's not hero and support"...
.."scream the big scream"..

he's a riot. I guess you do have time. Thanks Rusty.

@Rusted - thanks again, sincerely. Sorry on the little blowup the other day. all apologies.

you've assembled a nice collection of vids on your channel and would like to highlight more.

feel free to drop a comment anytime to alert us of anymore faves.

indeed, this Kurt Loder interview is one of the most candid ever.

Neil's quote of 'don't rock the boat' and the following comments made me look up the lyrics of 'Days that used to be'. Never paid too much attention to them, but I should have… really some wise words in there
And btw: I agree, Neil should try stand up comedy!

any chance Neil had done a bump or two prior to this interview ala 'Last Waltz' fame? I can't remember ever seeing him this jovial...

Second night , Neil did this incredible version of 'Cinnamon Girl' I don't know how deliberate it all was, whether Neil knew or not—I was talking pictures in the middle of the centre aisle (believe it or not, on all four nights, I was never approached to move on, though I was sitting on my haunches, smack dab at the front of the centre aisle!), Suddenly in the middle of Cinnamon Girl. This beautiful blonde, in a vivid yellow mini-dress, came down the centre aisle dancing, very raunchily. Neil was weaving away at the front of the stage when he caught site of her. He went absolutely on fire. Talk about ants in his pants. He went absolutely wild, responding to her movements with movements of his own on both guitar and body! Absolutely exhillerating and incrdible guitar playing!. It only happened on the one night and I don't believe that Neil was expecting it, not according to his reaction! Tony Fahy
