Be interested in comment on this. I was at the show and loved it. I've seen Neil in all guises and in many places maybe two dozen times over the years. For me this clip is where the controversy kicks in. For 6 minutes this is really cooking - in fact Neil almost looks like he's struggling to keep on top of the song - but then he stops it - does he give up? - and by the time another 6 minutes has gone by it's hard to remember how incendiary the first 6 minutes were. In Glasgow the same approach happened with WLAG and FU. To WLAG it added something but FU is a piece of fluff and the protracted audience participation ending adds nothing to it.
Neil has been my main man for 40 years and I enjoyed the Glasgow show so much I came home and booked London and Lucca for the weeks ahead but when I see this clip in isolation I can understand how some folks are unimpressed and go home unhappy.

I reckon the first 6 minutes is the standard song. The last half seems like its personal and the artist. Does that make sense? He added the "Don't say it's over somewhere in the middle of the US leg and hasn't removed it. I think its part of the overrall message of this tour. And who can say what that is except Neil. The moaning is pretty far out on this one. He's one weird dude alright.

Thanks for that. Glasgow was the first show I've seen on this run. I'd been following this site and comments but for some reason Hey Hey hadn't really featured. I didn't know this approach to the song had been established for a while. Don't know I've picked up on the message if there is one but hey, the soaring highs of following Mr Young far outweigh the question marks.
For what it's worth my long term partner came to the Glasgow show with me - she's a bit of a Beyonce Babe and not much into Neil. After the openers of Love and Only Love running into Powderfinger she told me she thought the show was fantastic. She loved the noise and the energy and remarked that "he seems to have complete control of electricity!"
In the car on the way home, however, she commented on Hey Hey and said that perhaps J Rotten would reflect that maybe it was better to burn out than to end up doing "that" to your song. Overall I think the current tour - like almost every tour - is for true fans. Unfortunately in these days of greatest hits trips a couple of historical hits brings in some with the wrong idea.

I saw a couple of the shows on this tour and while I found nothing to complain about others with me were not impressed with the extended noise/feedback etc. Maybe there's some connection between Neil being off the booze and grass that's made him more edgier on this tour? Maybe he's more likely to push things rather than become enveloped in a nice long guitar solo (like say Cortez on Weld). Is there a grumpiness taking over and creating for example 10 minutes of feedback where once there was a mellow state of mind and hitting the zone with a great guitar solo?
Either way it makes for an interesting show, and interesting is always better than bland. Pete UK
