Digging through the old ‘toon files, I found this, circa 1978, which puts me in high school at about 17. Back when I worshiped all things Neil……(Come to think about it still do.)
Have you seen his great “Fork in the Road” video? Made with, like, a cell phone. Note the repo guys at the end. And too bad to have to watch the t-mobile commercial first. http://www.myspace.com/video/neil-young/fork-in-the-road/100011307
“It’s only castles burning”;good words to remember.As for Johnny with his finger up here’s a song I wrote with that image in mind,sung by a friend kind enough to edit and sing the better parts of my inchoate rage.
Great angry song!
Has Neil seen this? Maybe he should.
Happy for him to see it if you know a way! Bill and Dave and Neil’s cocktail Party!
I meant cocktail hour of course!
It would be a party if Neil showed up.
Great drawing, Gessner. And at 17. Now I see why you were so cocky when I first met you; you ARE a multi-talented son of a gun! Cheers. I just heard on the radio today that Neil has a new album out with Crazy Horse and it’s supposed to be a real good one. Mmmmmm…..I’ve seen Neil more than any other artist; 10 times, counting the first Farm Aid, since I last counted… I’ve seen him in many of his flavors, including Neil and The International Harvesters and Neil and The Shocking Pinks. Love him! I have his book if you want to read it when you’re here this summer….
Glad to know we are like-minded. And I’ve already read Shakey, if that’s the book you mean, but thanks!
I guess you’ve seen the famous picture of Johnny Cash shooting the bird. I’ve got that hanging over my old writing desk.
Not sure if I have. Send it along and I’ll post it. Maybe we can start Middle Finger Monday. (At first, being a nature guy, I thought you meant he really killed a bird.)
