The latest issue of Broken Arrow Magazine, published by the Neil Young Appreciation Society just arrived and we're now finishing up reading the issue. As always a nice read -- especially as we look back while looking ahead.

And -- thanks to the generous support of NYAS and editor Scott Sandie -- we're pleased to be able to offer a copy of the latest issue of Broken Arrow Magazine to a Thrasher's Wheat reader. Details follow below.

Issue #122 (May 2011) of Broken Arrow Magazine - as usual - has some fine articles, commentary and nice photos.

In particular, a very extensive chronology of Neil Young's live performances in London, England by Scott Sandie. With many rare photos and detailed notes, it's an essential reference for Neil Young collectors.

Also in the issue:
  • Twisted Road Tour 2011 Reports
  • Don't Kill The Machine: An Analysis of "Hippie Dream" by Guy Haslam
  • Juno Awards 2011 report by Sharry Wilson
  • Some of Neil's Father Scott's Letters

Also, note the final article "Last Dance" and the NYAS editor's call for submissions to Broken Arrow.

Act now. Seize the day. Your society needs you!

So check out the Neil Young Appreciation Society page for more info on how to join.

Don't be denied!

Thanks Scott and everyone who is supporting the NYAS & BA!

Seems like the photo exhibition went to the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville.

WARNING: If you don't want to cry don't watch the video!

One of the few good things left about Rolling Stone is that they still cover Neil faithfully despite all the other crap they put out.

This video you pointed me to BSM got me to thinking - after I wiped away my own tear. It's as if Neil truly is letting his guard down and giving fans a genuine insight into his persoanl thinking about his legacy. I'm so glad that he is opening the vaults and finally releasing one gem after another - gems that we all knew were in there but that he didn't release for numerous reasons. It's fantastic that he is setting the pace for his Archives releases - not someone else who may have other motives other than the music itself - think Hendrix.

Hey Jonathan - Don't bag on Rolling Stone... I've been a regular reader since 1971, and I think that the magazine is the best it's been in ages, especially the last 2-3 years. Their political and environmental investigative reporting is some of the best out there, every issue.
Sure, they cover the bands of the day, and whatever is going on in current youth culture, which you may not be at all interested in, but some of their profiles lately have been amazing. Great profile a couple issues back of Paul Simon.
Also, an extremely long and very interesting piece on Jimmy Carter too. You should really check out the print magazine. I think they are doing great, great work.
Online, David Fricke's review of the first Springfield show was spot on... better than anything else I saw or read. I was at the show, and he captured the vibe of the night to perfection.

Why is it we can't just "make a donation" to become a member in the US? It makes it a little difficult because we would actually have to own a stamp to become a member the way things are set up now. Can't this system be revised?

@6/16/2011 09:16:00 PM - good question.

Just so there's no confusion here, the donation on this post is to support TW. NYAS supports TW by offering a free copy as an incentive to support TW.

And of course TW supports NYAS by providing the free display ad on right sidebar.

Feel free to followup if still unclear.

Keep on rockin'!
