    I was skeptical that Young and Crazy Horse could pull off an album full of nursery rhymes as rock songs, but dammit if the man didn't do it with his latest album.

    That's a solid column on a great artist

    I've always been a huge Young fan and absolutely love his new album Americana that he did with Crazy Horse.

    For Canucks, you'll never hear "God Save the Queen" quite the same way again.

    And the guitar intro on "Oh Susannah" is a knock-out.

    Didn't now that he was a model railway freak

    Hard to think of Neil without thinking of his dad Scott Young, one of Canada's great journalists, sports and otherwise. Neil probably got his sense of justice from his old man. Scott resigned from the Globe & Mail over an editorial dispute.

    "This Land is your Land" is a nursery rhyme?

    Big Neil Young fan here. "Tonight's The Night" was the soundtrack of my life in the mid-70s.

    I once read an interview with Neil in Rolling Stone magazine where he said he wrote "Powderfinger" for Lynyrd Skynyrd and that he absolutely loved "Sweet Home Alabama."

    And, rumor has it he and Crazy Horse are performing in Tuscaloosa next month.

    HC gave me tickets for my birthday to the Dylan concert on November 15

    Neil's coming to the Air Canada Centre on November 19. Wonder if I can talk her into an early Xmas present. :)

    That would be a hell of a week.

    Neil's set list, as described in the Times article, sounds pretty damn good.

    And, Dylan's better than he's been in years. His recent shows have gotten good reviews, and his band -- with Charlie Sexton on lead guitar -- kicks ass.

    I need to see Neil again. Only saw him once, and it was during his feedback fascination -- every song seemed to devolve into 10 minutes of screeching. I'd like to see him now that he's got that out of his system.

    Pearl Jam and Blind Melon were the opening acts. Pretty cool show.

    Last time I saw Neil was during Greendale -- which I don't think had even been released yet.

    He played that whole damn album --with actors hamming it up on stage -- before playing about four songs I had heard before.

    Would still love to see him again.

    Like I said, based on the Times article, it sounds like he's doing a pretty sweet playlist.

    Currently the second most emailed article on the Times' site, which led to this tweet:

    Tucked inside my hermetic little world of media, my stuff is almost never on NYT's most emailed list. Then I wrote about Neil Young. Wow.
