Shakey and the band record their performances from the “Rust Never Sleeps” tour and release the album, “Live Rust” on November 14, 1978. Personally, it’s Neil and Crazy Horse at their live best.
Happy 74th to arguably one of the most important singer/songwriters of a generation …
#7 from Shakey is released on November 10, 1975. “Danger Bird” can not be played loud enough.
We’re thinking about making it sound real, like you can feel that this means something to the people playing it … We’re not trying to impress anybody.”
Shakey’s got a new flick …
When it came time to promote COLORADO , Neil Young ’s first album with Crazy Horse in seven years, the venerable songwriter postponed his tour to instead work on a making-of documentary. The resulting film, entitled Mountaintop and directed by Young under the alias Bernard Shakey, will play in theaters for one night only on October 22nd in the United States and on November 18th in South America and Europe.
It sounds like Crazy Horse. And that’s all I need to know.
The sprawling guitar jam is Neil Young’s first studio release with Crazy Horse since 2012. Get the details.
And, suddenly … all is right in my world.
Neil Young released his most recent album, The Visitor , back in 2017. His last LP with his Crazy Horse band, Psychedelic Pill , came out in 2012. This October, he will release a new Crazy Horse album, COLORADO. And according to the Neil Young Archives website , the first single is out next month.
Neil Young and Crazy Horse release their 20th album on August 16, 1994.
The title track was a nod to Kurt Cobain who messed with Shakey’s head in his suicide note.
When he died and left that note, it struck a deep chord inside of me. It fucked with me.
Cobain included the lyric, “It’s better to burn out than fade into black” from Young’s 1979 song ‘Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)’ in the note.
Neil Young and Crazy Horse release their live classic on June 22, 1979. It’s #351 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
Lyrically, you can’t get much better than Shakey’s penning of “Powderfinger” or “Pocahantas.”
