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 #123 (August 2011) of Broken Arrow Magazine - as usual - has some fine articles, commentary and nice photos.
This issue concentrates on the Buffalo Springfield reunion tour, the release of ‘A Treasure’ and two fascinating insider reports on the Joel Bernstein/Henry Diltz photo exhibition ‘Two Takes on Neil Young’. It’s once again packed full of photos, and there is also the bonus of a 4-page full-colour centre section consisting of several previously unseen historic photos from the 1984/85 International Harvesters Tours. These really have to be seen.
Amongst the many other articles is a surprising Spotted! of Susan Young in the 1970s and one fan’s ongoing (and expensive!) search to re-create Neil’s guitar sound. In a busy letters section find some interesting comments on last issue’s ‘London Calling’ feature and see another picture from Joe Stevens, the photographer who took the famous ‘cream pie’ photo in 1976.
And as usual, a news section edited by Guy Haslam, with lots of innarestin' items.

OK, here's how and why...
In the last issue of Broken Arrow Magazine: May 2011, in the final article 'Last Dance', NYAS editor Scott Sandie and esteemed colleague (and pint consuming connoisseur) Guy Haslam issued a call for submissions to Broken Arrow from all Society membership.
So have a look at this article list below and use it as a prompt. Why not write that article that you’ve always thought about, either on one of these topics or anything else that you have in mind? Set yourself a target to write one, or at least have a go. At worst it won’t be published. At best you’ll see yourself in print in your own magazine. And earn a NYA boxset, to boot.
