Photo of the Moment: Neil Young, Willie Nelson and Jonathan Demme

Neil Young, Willie Nelson and Jonathan Demme 
 Nashville, Tenn. - March 9, 2006
 (Click photo to enlarge)

The Photo of the Moment is from 2006 of Neil Young, Willie Nelson and Jonathan Demme -- among many, many others -- attending the film premiere of the widely acclaimed 'Heart of Gold' in Nashville, Tennessee.

Judging from the attendees, it was almost like that March 2006 night in Nashville was the film's TRUE  premiere, compared to the 1st Sundance screening earlier.

Thus, completing the circle on those magical Nashville August 2005 nights.

Hey Thrash, been having issues posting on mobile. I left a comment on the recent SWA review thread, but it got lost. I’m still reading, trying to carve out the time to work on some reviews of my own… I love the idea of covering relatively obscure, neglected albums (like SWA), since it provides a chance to spotlight great moments lots of folks may have missed.

Hey Meta Rocker! Good to hear from you.

Bummer on comment troubles.

This does seem to be a mobile thing on both android & apple.

It seems to involve login cookies. while it may appear you're logged on for a comment, it isn't until you hit submit that actually credential verification takes place. thus loss of comment.
So let us suggest this. 1st submit a test comment. if it posts, just delete and proceed w/ comment.
if test doesn't post, obviously then you're not fully logged on and need to go through login, verification process.

btw, do you get a CAPTCHA verification box? Is it bombing out after you submit CAPTCHA?

G-day there Thrasher .... how's it goin eh ?
Curiously absent from yer usual ... everything that Neil says is based on your Scientology thought of all doing .. all right.
Realising yer blog or forum ... whatever this expression of free thought is ?
If you can for a brief moment read some of the thoughts of everyday working class Canadians ... maybe open your mind just a wee bit .
Neil Young's... the American Mermaid recent attempts at interfering with Canadian Defense policy with regards to our National Security and the replacement of fighter jets .
Neil Young continues to be a disgrace to Canada . Shut yer yap Neil Young ... you have long been irrelevant . His father Scott Young is a real Canadian Icon .
Thrasher if you think that`s just my opinion ... please read the thoughts of hundreds of Canadians in response in the National Post article .
For most of you Americans still living in the bubble of freedom . The National Post is a independent Canadian newspaper ... some where in between CNN and Fox ..except it`s not funded with tax dollars and censored like the CBC .
I chuckle ... as just two weeks ago you posted pictures of Neil saluting your flag ... but yet he still thinks he is a Canadian É

Test comment. Sorry for this just checking. Haven't been able to comment for years

Fort Mac,

Explain your points, address your audience with respect, and then you can expect the same in return. Drop the juvenile remarks and sarcasm. Perhaps there is a very good criticism of Neil and his friends in what you are saying but learn how to say it.

Off topic: has it been commented before that Pocahontas bears more than a passing resemblance to Carole King's (1963) "He's A Bad Boy"? The title pre-empts any male artist gaining too much inspiration from her melody!

At 7/20/2021 02:53:00 PM, Blogger thrasher said...

@ Seamus - that worked, sorry about comment troubles. try again sometime.

@ Abner - thanks & good advice

@ growl - good to hear from you as well. been awhile. maybe comment troubles as well?

regarding topic, actually no. interesting. Will try and give a listen sometime.

Yeah, had a few problems logging in, then got out of the habit posting. But remained lurking in the background!

The Carole King song is so very similar, it cannot be coincidence.

Struggled to get through the last year without live music. So glad I managed to catch NY in Berlin last summer.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks Growl. Actually, it's important to know that you and other long time supporters of TW are still out there in lurk mode.

we know that we sometimes feel we're howling into the darkness.

but we carry on here and try to keep it REAL. Sometimes a bit too REAL for some.

We do miss folks like Scotsman and their brilliant insights. And Dan??? Are you on vacation?

So if folks are having trouble commenting, please continue to try. Do a hard reset of your phone or browser to clear cache.

btw, thoughts on TWR 2.0?!

G-day Abner ...fair enough let's bring this discussion back from an intellect's attempt at scolding a school boy eh .
In more plain , everyday people working class vernacular .

As a young lad , with the traditional desire to harvest wild deer from the Canadian fervent green , I listened to those that knew how to clean a rifle , listened to those that knew how to stay quiet in the bush , clean a deer , give thanks , and go back to the hunt camp , and tilt a few pints in good measure .

As an older lad , with regards to what's best for our Canadian Military , and the replacement of our fighter jets ... I listen to those Canadians with such experience that will allow for an informed opinion ... without bias from those that know how to tune a guitar , write books of how much dope they did , and are now lost in a hippie dream from the sixties thinking they are still talking to rebellious anti war acid heads .
Last live concert ..2017 . Dylan in Ottawa , as always , a graceful musician playing his songs ...without a word to the crowd .

At 7/20/2021 10:33:00 PM, Blogger Abner Snopes said...

as a traditional lad growing up in rural New England, I shot my first duck at age 12 and then hunted regularly well into my adult life, all kinds of game. Framed houses to pay for college. Don't assume you know the person you are talking to does not know work or outdoor life.

I was not an intellect scolding a child but a fellow citizen asking for civil responses and comments.

You have yet to state the argument for the fighter jets. Please do it because I think you are right.

where is Dan? Scotsman?
