From Gig Review: Neil Young & Crazy Horse (March 19, Wgtn) by Simon Sweetman:
The real salt and grit is when Neil is strangling that guitar, arguing for it to spill the beans, to tell its truth/to yell his truth. He’s like the standover man of the electric guitar; he wrestles and wrangles, he tilts and whirls, he angles back with a cartoon walk one minute then next thing it appears he’s been using his guitar to catch a fish all the while. Hendrix may well have stood at the edge of the mountain and chopped it down with the edge of his hand. But you get the feeling, now, that he was instructed to do that so that Neil Young could tunnel out from the rubble.
Every guitar solo is different, every guitar solo is sacred. Neil Young’s guitar solos when he’s riding with the horse are not toilet-break material, unless you couldn’t make it the whole way to the show in one go because your knuckles were skinned from all the walking. Neil Young’s guitar solos when he’s riding with the horse are a surprise every time – to him and to us. He plays them as if he’s hearing them for the first time. That’s the real (genuine) treat. His severe case of guitar-face so genuine; he so thoroughly means this shit. He’ll fight for it too. His guitar carries the scars to show for it. He’s so wrapped up in this and his body language suggests the power runs through the lead and on through him before it gets to the guitar’s pickup.

Neil Young may look 107 years old, but his voice sounds 27. Immaculate concert.— Paul (@WeAreAllCylons) March 19, 2013

Dad just called from Neil Young. Didn’t say a word, just held up his phone. Legend.— Duncan Heal (@duncn) March 19, 2013
Just had to quickly pop on Twitter to let you all know how amazing Neil Young is. Particularly for such an old bugger. He's still got it.— Ashleigh Lambert (@ashtron) March 19, 2013
