Hi Neil,
Thanks for doing this. Pretty cool.

So my question is: What was that like working with DEVO? Looked pretty crazy on the set. Pretty hilarious with that Bijou Boy sequence. And the milk pouring scene was far out. What's up with that?

It's Booji Boy. (And for some background on that scene and the milk bath see Shakey p. 531)

At 2/20/2016 04:51:00 PM, Blogger Thrasher Wheat said...

Thanks Babbo B!
Sort of forgot the Shakey story. But most folks don't know full story. and certainly hearing Neil tell it would be priceless.
ps - any questions for Neil???

At 2/20/2016 05:37:00 PM, Blogger Shakeyjrc said...

How's it going Neil? Could you please explain the concept behind the "Rust Never Sleeps" film/tour, i.e. large amps/props/road eyes?

Thanks, Jonathan from Hershey, PA

Hi Neil, thanks for taking your time answering our questions. Here´s mine: The employees and customers in the gas station diner aren´t aware of the fact that they´re experiencing the last day of the earth. How would you spend the last day,
before this planet vanished?
Thanks! Simone from Berlin, Germany

Neil, Richie from Lake Elsinore, CA

You have the best sound! Was the Rust Never Sleeps Tour the first time you used your
orange box and Whizzer?

Dave from Toronto,

I was wondering about that recording of Hey, Hey, My, My with Devo.
Is that the origianal studio recording of the song?
And did you make any other recordings with Devo?

At 2/21/2016 10:57:00 AM, Blogger Stefan Svik said...

Dear Neil,

you have the Javas from Star Wars in Rust. What do you think about the movies?

Long may you run

Stefan Svik, Germany

Hi Neil,

Ross from Hermosa Beach, California. I wanted to know what happened to all of the awesome props you used in Rust Never Sleeps. Are the big amps I've seen you on tour with the same ones from that tour?

At 2/21/2016 11:44:00 AM, Blogger timothy fontenot said...


Your films are poorly conceived and produced and as a movie fan unwatchable. My question is why do you even try. Thanks for the music though even though by most accounts are poorly conceived and produced (but that's why your music is so incredible). I call your music the Bernie Sanders effect.

At 2/21/2016 01:49:00 PM, Blogger Lone Red Rider said...

Hi Neil- Omar from Austin. Why did you name the movie Human Highway? Is it somehow meant to relate to your song of the same title?

At 2/21/2016 01:53:00 PM, Blogger Lookout Mama said...

Hi Neil. Sheila from Portland Oregon. Why release now? Is there any significance to the timing?

At 2/21/2016 01:57:00 PM, Blogger Thrasher Wheat said...

Great questions rusties! Thanks for submitting and keep'em coming!

@ Timothy - not too sure your question will be selected. Maybe try again? Sort of a tone thing, if you catch our drift.

Bill from up on the hill asks,

How'd you go in a matter of 4 months from Boarding House solo shows without even a microphone stand on stage to Rust Never Sleeps with giant props and rust-o-vision ?

At 2/21/2016 03:59:00 PM, Blogger Joyce Haddad said...

Hi Neil - in Human Highway, did you have any particular list of songs that you knew you were including in the movie, or was it spur of the moment decision? Jo from Winnipeg

At 2/21/2016 04:08:00 PM, Blogger Dave Murphy said...

Dave in Newfoundland Canada

Hi Neil many of the takes from Live Rust were used for the Rust Never Sleeps album...was that your intention from the start or did you record them in studio as well but maybe preferred the live cuts?

Come see us again soon!

At 2/21/2016 04:22:00 PM, Blogger Andy Walters said...

Neil, I have this huge box in my record collection I think it's called Archives 1 Blu - Ray do you think Vol 2 will ever see the light of day and do you think you've over engineered the product and the packaging ?

At 2/21/2016 07:50:00 PM, Blogger Owen Gidlow said...

First, Thanks Thrasher for the offering!

Owen & Kelly from The Palace in the Sun, Carolina Shores, NC

Neil, Both my wife & I saw the Alchemy Show in Fairfax, VA. It was her First Neil Show and she fell in love with The Horse! We both want to know how Brother Billy Talbot is doing after his stroke? ...and if you and the Lads plan on riding The Horse again....anytime soon? Long May You Run!

We Love you, Man!

Hi Neil,

On your website several years ago, I remember reading about an unreleased album you did with Crazy Horse known as "Toast". Will this be album released any time soon?


At 2/25/2016 01:28:00 PM, Blogger Shakeyjrc said...

Neil will release his new studio album, Earth, in a few months according to a recent AP interview!

New record 'Earth' - oh no more messages.

I wonder if he's concerned that the 02 will be half empty?

Loads of tickets available in all areas @ £100 each?

Dave & Phil Alvin playing London @ £25.00 - enough said.
