Broken Arrow Magazine: November 2011 - Win a Copy and a NYA Boxset
Photo by Nurit Wilde
The latest issue of Broken Arrow Magazine, published by the Neil Young Appreciation Society recently hit the streets 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 #124 (November 2011) of Broken Arrow Magazine - as usual - has some fine articles, commentary and rare photos.
It includes Part One of a fascinating memoir from Vicki Cavaleri, originally a waitress at the Whisky A Go Go who was there at the very start of the Buffalo Springfield story in LA in 1966 and who spent much of that year in the company of Neil Young. This article is accompanied by some vintage posters and photos from 1966. The cover is a stunning 1966 photo by legendary rock photographer and friend to the NYAS Nurit Wilde.
Once again this issue sports a colour centrefold, this time of Farm Aid and Bridge School Benefit photos sent in by members, and there also is a long, detailed article on the premiere of Neil Young Journeys at the Toronto International Film Festival. News editor Guy Haslam catches up with ex-Crazy Horse sideman Matt Piucci in London for an interesting interview, and there are all the usual features, including a detailed letter from Pete Long on the ongoing Old Ways saga.
Finally the sad recent passing of Bert Jansch and Jackie Leven – and their relationships to Neil Young – are noted with obituaries.
