It really does feel like it's the end. What a very strange period of his life he is going through.

NY was (is) always a friend of the indians. The indian chiefs were going to the mountains for dying in honur and peace. NY is going to the Himalaya to find his freedom ...
I hope it´s bullsht but what other explanation would be that he is auctioning all the goods he loved?
An illness with a time limit or does he want a new experience for what materialism not counts ?
We will see it within next months ...

My parents have been doing the same thing, downsizing, reducing the burden for the next generation to sort through it all. But he is still creating, don't write him off just yet. Alan in Seattle.

>> love is not the easy thing
The only baggage you can bring
Is all that you can't leave behind

All that you fashion
All that you make
All that you build
All that you break
All that you measure
All that you fear
All this you can leave behind

...... Better down the road, Without that load

Neil is not going to the Himalayas. He is holding an auction because he has too much stuff. Neil is definitely not auctioning "ALL of his stuff." Do you really think he traded all of his guitars for cash? He kept all of his favorites for continuing use and enjoyment.

He no longer lives at Broken Arrow Ranch and he has a huge storage unit in Belmont California (near where I went to X-ray school and saw 6 Princeton Landing shows). He is just downsizing. It is a smart thing to do. Why leave a mess for your kids to clean up? Some people who are older begin to realize that to achieve a happy road into the sunset involves tossing out some less used items. In Neil's case, he kept a great collection of guitars for himself, I am sure! is probably . I know I need to jettison some stuff. No Neil Young recordings will be lost in this process.

I am impressed with the Archives on line and I am excited for what the future holds for Neil Young an all of us, the true hard core fans. I am listening to Tumbleweed from the live show again (BigOzine) and I think, despite having a cold / feeling the years, Neil kicked some ass at this show.

I was a huge fan of Johnny Cash in his last decade. I see great stuff coming out from Neil Young for many years to come. Not just the past treasures we covet and celebrate…. He STILL has a lot to say! The Visitor is brilliant and so are the Archives. Now all I need is a tour to the Pacific North West and I am good! I still want Blu ray discs for some of these audio releases though!!!
