Words....between the lines of age.

I hope today finds Neil filled with happiness, contentment and peace, mixed with just enough doubt, fear and righteous anger so that he may continue asking the questions that have no answers.

May his voice always resonate;
and may his guitar always scream.
May his passion never wane;
and may his songs always be heard.

It's never too late, it's never too late;
but always know, it's later than we think.

Thank you Neil.
Your music continues to multiply my joy and divide my sorrow, and I trust and hope it does the same and more for you...

Age is just a number
It might be how you feel
But it's all relative, you know
Its only how you Neil.

Happy 70 and more...

Thrasher---

What's the source for that funky version of Down by the River? I don't remember hearing it before. The piano (whomever is playing it) is adding some texture.


Maybe you can be 70 on Sugar Mountain…

Happy Birthday, Neil Young.
