VIDEO: Neil Young signing posters for PONO backers

Neil Young

Here's a fun little video of Neil Young signing posters for PONO backers.

The newly named PONO CEO is seen busily autographing posters in assembly line fashion. The video is on Pono Music | Kickstarter:
We are shipping posters this week, as Neil was on tour and we were faced with delays. We appreciate your patience and continued support. For making you wait a little longer, we thought we could share a video you might get a kick out of.

For those of you that doubted Neil would sign every single poster, here is proof that he did. Enjoy his wise words, too:

"When I first came up with the name Pono, people said, You can't do that! People are gonna think it's porno! I said, These people know the difference between music and pornography!"

Yes, we are sure you do.

Have a lovely weekend.
It's a real behind the scenes moment with Neil freestyling away in all of his ragged glory.

Full post and video at Pono Music | Kickstarter.

ps - be sure to look for the "Golden Poster/Ticket". ;)

Imagine if someone who doesn't see the process video gets the "Golden Ticket" and doesn't even know it? I'll be flipping mine!

yeah, or they go to un-roll poster thinking Neil F#@ked up & signed the wrong side! until they get it fully Un-rolled and realise what they really have in hand.
What a great ride that'd be....

I'm all in, & liking the odds.
Better odds than the lottery but just like the lottery:
You gotta be in it to win it!

listening to Cork now first time. Love guitar based After Gold Rush. to sound cliché it breathes new life into it. really great. like the backup singers too. love the songs. Days that Used to Be, is that a borrowed tune from My Back Pages or am I trippin ?

Yes, it does look like there'll be someone lucky out there. Hope someone notices they have the Golden Poster.

Not trippin' - according to "Shakey," "A wistful acoustic number to the tune of Dylan's 'My Back Pages,' 'Days That Used To Be' was briefly called 'Letter to Bob.' "

having read Shakey I might have known that. might that is.

Wall Street Journal article about the coming high res revolution and how Sony has built a high res player that's selling well in Japan and more manufacturers intend to follow suite .. looks like Neil might be on to something w Pono:

Here's an excerpt:

Japanese research firm Fuji Chimera Research Institute Inc. projects that high-resolution audio devices will account for about 20% of sales in the global audio market by 2020 in terms of value from less than around 5% now.

"People are becoming more quality conscious with high-definition television and this is the same parallel in the audio world," said David Chesky, the founder of HDtracks, a U.S. digital-music store that offers high-resolution audio files. The firm has more than doubled its revenue each year since its launch in 2008.
