Decided it was a bad idea to take my family. I have three extra tickets and I am driving alone from Mercer County, NJ. Anyone interested?

What the f#!K is the problem? Last year's webcast was flawless and this year it's a Piece Of Crap !!! I don't mind if it is not "live", or having to stay up late, but if they do not play NY & CH and Willie & Family's sets IN THEIR ENTIRETY then it will NOT be Only Love Can Break [my] Heart !!!

From the looks of it, Neil is eating way too many inandout burgers and fries and not enough homegrown salad. No joke. He's gotten way lardy around the middle and belly fat's a killer. Now he's going out on a grueling tour at 67 carrying that fat around? He better get his body together or he's gonna be playing with brother Ben way sooner than he was planning on. I'm dead serious. The connection between belly fat and cardiac disease, including sudden death, is strong. Neil, man, lose the fat. Have that misguided wife of yours can her lousy stage act and get to work in the kitchen actually doing something productive for one of the world's greatest living (at the moment) singer/songwriters. Would hate to lose you too soon. Look where LA's burgers got him.

What a pathetic post by, guess who, 'anonymous' above.

At 9/23/2012 10:57:00 AM, Blogger Dominic Holdem said...

ugh, once again neil shows his utter disregard for his fans by not allowing his set to be broadcast live on sirius. almost every other artist was broadcast, but of course not neil. no, that would be TOO FUCKING SWEET for the poor fan at home, sitting around on a saturday, waiting with excitement to hear the man.

saw the two songs on the webcast though...looks like neil fell off the pot wagon already! and yes, he is getting fat, but i'd put it a bit more delicately than dipshit anon.

What has his potbelly got to do with anything? Look at these videos instead and listen to the great renditions.

I see he broke out Country Home, a track I was begging for at Lake Tahoe. He could do one of those performing Ragged Glory in its entirety promotions. at least we now have youtube, a few years ago we didnt. Im grateful.

I tweeted thrasher twice and sent him a fuckin' email two days ago to tell him about this and he hasn't responded to either, but 3 minutes of Walk Like A Giant is streaming on The full song goes up on th 25th. Here's the url

There should be something about this on the main page.

At 9/23/2012 06:51:00 PM, Blogger Thrasher Wheat said...

Thanks for the YouTubes. We'll post soon.

@Medward - sorry about the disconnect. Over the past few days, we've been focused on getting to Hershey, catching up with old & new friends and enjoying a tremendous day of music and awareness building.

At the time, we didn't feel a brief sample took precedence over the Farm Aid event.
