WEBCAST: Voodoo Fest, New Orleans, Neil Young & Crazy Horse. Oct. 26

From Neil Young and Crazy Horse showed the kids how it's done at Voodoo Fest | The Times-Picayune | By Keith Spera:
Neil Young & Crazy Horse looked like the guys who constructed Voodoo Fest’s main stage. Instead, they were the guys who deconstructed it.

Young, bassist Billy Talbot, drummer Ralph Molina and rhythm guitarist Frank “Poncho” Sampedro muscled through two exhilarating hours of especially stout guitar rock. If Gary Clark Jr. was a fighter jet at Voodoo, Crazy Horse was a squadron of B-52 bombers.


At 11 p.m., as an encore of “Like a Hurricane” blew itself out, Young sacrificed his guitar. He tore off the strings, scratching them against the instrument’s pickups to produce more distortion. As the guitar lay prone, he contemplated it and nudged it with his foot, as if to see whether it was really dead.

It was.

In one of the greatest Voodoo sets to date, Young, abetted by Crazy Horse, played it to death.

I was at the show and it was amazing. Neil and Crazy Horse rocked the crowd for two full hours. Highlight for me was Mr. Soul. But all others were good too. Crowd was a great mix of young and old. I was surrounded by many much younger than myself. Great energy at Voodoo Fest. If readers have not yet heard Gary Clark, this guy is a fine artist. I was blown away by his talent.

Neil... Murdered... Old Black.
Like Jimi killed his Strat at Monterey, Neil killed Old Black. Even if Larry Cragg was around, I do not think that guitar can be brought back to life. The Bigsby tremolo appeared to be at a right angle to the bridge... Utterly demolished. Freaked me the fuck right out. Please, God, please bring Old Black back from the dead...

old black is fine, nancy. the tremelo bar tends to swing around once you rip all the strings off.
