Thrasher, was that you singing along to POTR I've just seen in the live stream? Seems you're enjoying yourself. Keep on rocking!

it's possible Visitor.

We did enjoy ourselves during POTR. In fact we enjoyed the whole weekend despite the lack of Neil.

It was sort of weird to go to a neil concert event w/o neil. like having a warm beer or something where a key ingredient is missing.

that said, it was a wonderful day to be out with so many music and farm lovers.

Willie is a gift to humanity and just to be in his presence -- along w/ his sons Lukas & Micah -- is an act of restoring one's faith in humanity.

more to come ...

Heads up out there, all ye faithful. Beck has covered "Old Man" as a promo for Sunday Night Football, a beautiful cover by the way. I think, I might be all alone on this one, that such a promo is grotesque given the content and context of the song. Nothing can be farther from the grace and dignity of that song than the glittery and destructive nonsense of commodified athletics. It makes no difference any longer, nothing "belongs" anywhere and everything can be used for anything as long as some idiotic connection can be made. It is amazing in and of itself that the album Harvest was ever a #1 seller given its weirdness, authenticity, and deep feeling- where does one find such things? File under the banality case file #whatever: "is nothing sacred" (banal as the slogan covers up all that is sacred and even precludes finding it, or once one asks that question, it has to be the case that nothing is sacred). More bullshit in the land of bullshit.

yikes. Thanks Abner.

maybe this has been pointed out elsewhere, but why would Neil authorize this usage?

Or maybe he didn't authorize this b/c now handled by the new ownership stake in his catalog?

Or didn't the new catalog owner say there will never be HoG on a hamburger commercial or something?

This seems about as sacrilegious an abuse of artist's work.

I just got the Time Fades Away CD in the mail!

That one was Hard to Find for many decades.

I think DH may have encouraged him to release it.

Glad to once again have the Holy Grail in my hand.
