I read through comments before watching the video of "Rockin' in the Free World" and I was expecting to see a really pitiful performance by an old man well past his prime. That's not what I saw.Thanks Zack! A true rock & roll giant if there ever was one, we'd say.
I saw a rock n' roll genius and legend who commanded a stage full of some twenty or thirty musicians and an audience of tens of thousands more. He was yelling and barking into the mic like a man possessed, wailing on his guitar, and stomping around the stage like some kind of...well...giant.
All of those other musicians seemed to be in complete awe, even the long-time members of Crazy Horse could look on at the younger guys with an expression on their face like "we still can't believe it and we've been playing with this dude for DECADES."
And how about that coda of the chorus? All that feedback and screaming guitar, and then Neil counting the band right back in? Everyone lost their mind at how much energy and passion that "old man" was showing. Neil himself couldn't help but smile at how well it had pulled off.
Retire "Rockin' in the Free World"? I don't think so. Neil just gave that song as much life as it's ever had, and I wouldn't put it past him to be able to top it yet.
