Bruce Springsteen, Kanye West, Black Sabbath, Pearl Jam and Neil Young are among the artists participating in the Global Citizen Tickets Initiative, a push to encourage fans to become active in the war against extreme poverty. […]
Considering he gets to hang with his idols all day, Dave Grohl has a pretty cool life. Most recently, he’s been playing shows with his Sound City Players, featuring Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Cheap Trick‘s Rick Nielsen and Rick Springfield. His documentary, Sound City, features […]
Elton John, Eddie Vedder, Jackson Browne, Patti Smith, Neil Young, Tom Morello, Mavis Staples, Sting, Kenny Chesney, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Natalie Maines, Juanes, John Legend, Alabama Shakes, Emmylou Harris, Jim James and Mumford & Sons will all perform Springsteen songs. The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart, an avowed Springsteen fan, will host the show.
When discussing his many archival projects (including releases of his live recordings and a 10-disc box set), he says: “The fact that I want to create a chronological history of my recordings and supporting work is proof-positive that I am an incurable collector, confronted with an amazingly detailed array of creations that I have painstakingly rat-holed over the years. Some of them are complete pieces of s***, but they have their place in my chronological obsession.”
Dave Grohl recently announced that the Foo Fighters were going on a little vacation. He’s spending some of that time working on his latest labor of love, a documentary film about the legendary recording studio Sound City.
Over the weekend, Neil Young headlined his 26th annual Bridge School Benefit Concert. The annual acoustic concert always features a diverse lineup, and that was certainly true this year, as the lineup featured Young with Crazy Horse, Guns ‘N Roses, Jack White, psychedelic rockers Flaming Lips, bluesman Gary Clark Jr., Steve Martin with his bluegrass group The Steep Canyon Rangers, alt-rockers Foster The People and singer/songwriters k.d. lang, Sarah McLachlan, Ray LaMontagne and Lucinda Williams.
This weekend, Neil Young is holding his annual Bridge School Benefit concert at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California. The all-acoustic concert will feature Young playing with his usually-electric band Crazy Horse, as well as Guns N’ Roses, another band more well known for loud, electric music.
Neil Young & Crazy Horse have been on a tear lately: besides releasing two studio albums this year, they’ve put out a lot of music videos lately. This week, they’ve released two new music videos for songs from their upcoming album Psychedelic Pill.
A short news item says “The third episode of A Rust Trilogy, which began with Rust Never Sleeps in 1978, and continued with Weld in 1990, now concludes with Alchemy in 2012. Things have changed, yet they stay the same. Alchemy, like Rust and Weld, finds the boys at another stage of life’s journey. Time has taken its toll, yet the spirit seems unstoppable.”
The Global Citizen Festival in New York City was an event with a stated goal to “Celebrate the progress made in fighting extreme poverty, secure financial commitments for tackling extreme poverty and disease, and mobilise thousands of ambassadors for change.” But festival headliner Neill Young made sure that this wasn’t your average televised money and awareness raising concert: when he and Crazy Horse played “F***in’ Up,” it took the event straight into PG-13 (or R) territory.
