Neil Young on the cover of this month's Mojo Magazine (February 2011).

A 25-page tribute of stars (Paul McCartney, David Crosby, Metallica, MGMT, Rush etc) choose their favorite Neil Young compositions, Phil Sutcliffe tells the story of Harvest, Nils Lofgren explains how to play with Shakey, while the Neil tells Sylvie Simmons about the ancient mystic art of songwriting.

Fascinating interview with Daniel Lanois on Blogcritics Music by Donald Gibson:
Blogcritics Donald Gibson: Experience must dictate a lot of this, but when do you know when to say, “This isn’t working?” or “This other idea is better?” How do you know when to switch gears to reach some common ground?

Daniel Lanois: Well, I usually encourage all ideas to be brought to conclusion, if you have the time, especially if you’re with a group of folks who want to experiment. Somebody’s got an idea, see it through. It just costs time. And then a few days from the work, everybody listens and it becomes clear what rises to the surface, what the strongest ideas are, and go from there. People are smart so they’re not going to be supporting a weak result. You never know about an idea until you bring it to conclusion. I try to say yes to everything, but in the end my commitment and my care — I think people really feel that I care about them and their music — so I might give some ultimate advice on content, as I did with Neil.

We had an excess of material. I said, “Neil, believe it or not, I think this should be an eight-song record. It should be 39-minutes long, just like the vinyl days. You’ve already got your two slow songs; the rest should be rockers.” So we had to put five or six songs into the coral that he loved, and I loved too. It would have weighed the record down. It would’ve made it a soft record, which I felt served him badly. So in the end he said, “You’re the man. You’re my editor. You’re my curator.”

Alternate Ending of Neil Young's 'Walk With Me'

From Spinner, interview with videographer Adam Vollick, who filmed Le Noise videos:
"Vollick captured each track as it was committed to the hard drive, and his 38-minute black-and-white film 'Le Noise Film' is perfectly suited to the raw intensity of Young's performance.

If the film connects on any level, Vollick credits his subject.

'Neil's a force. You feel his conviction in everything he says and in every note he plays,' he says. 'You just have to rise to the occasion.'

Neil Young is back rebuilding Linc-Volt after the fire. A report from Jalopnik: "Determined to rebuild the LincVolt, we saw Young on webcam this week visiting the remains of his charred dream."

Jimmy Fallon, as Neil Young, covers "Tardy for the Party" by Kim Zolciak.

The alternate ending of 'Walk With Me' video is a very cool peek inside the process of recording Le Noise. I could watch Neil making noise with his guitar and amps for hours...

that is happening. a 6 minute outro and playing along with the feedback, that's real nice. a bit of electric solo arc/weld.

Man Jimmy Fallon apparently does not subscribe to the notion that too much of a good thing isn't a good thing. The impression was old a while ago now - give it a LONG rest dude.

How lucky is Mark Howard? Wow - that sure looks like the moment that they used for the picture insert inside the album/cd cover. I could watch hours of outtakes from the sessions just like this one...

That version of Are You Ready for the Country by Phosphorescent sounded great! Saw them live in September last year and they are really good! Matt Houck is a genius and Here's to Taking it Easy is really worth checking out, as is to Willie. Will pick up this month's issue of Mojo for sure!
