Of course Neil Young knows who Bono is...LOL


Exactly......he was joking.  Since, Bono went to a Neil Young concert, a few years ago in Dublin.  Neil and Bono know one another.

I like Neil's early music and google what he has done for the Bridge School.  He is not the jerk that some ppls would think.

Neil's just a "different cat", so to speak...a bit out there, big heart, and has done some GREAT music....

Becoming a fan of Neil Young happens usually slowly like this: 1) Hmm.. Weird voice 2) This song is kind of cool 3) Why didn't his band rehearse? 4) Man! He does this style as well? 5) What a career! 6) Beautiful acoustic songs! 7) I love 20 minutes of Crazy Horse jams! This takes approximately 10 years but highly recommended :)

Back on topic. There's no topic. Just a friendly joke.

Haha!! Speaking as someone who's 10 years into that journey, well said :)

Inish, is the Bridge School for cerebral palsy children? Just curious as I know Neil has children with CP.

Yeah, it's where his children went, or at least one of them, Jacob I think.

It took me about a year... although I'm still stuck at finding the 20 minute jams too long. :P

Yes.  Two of Neil's children have CP.  His son's is more severe.  I saw an interview years ago.  Neil has a huge model train garden at his home and specifically designed it.  So children with CP can operate the trains.  The look on the faces of these angels was priceless.  Including Neil's.

Neil and his wife (and ex-wife) automatically have my respect  for raising two CP children. My uncle had a sever case of CP and he lived to the age of 52. I grew up with Uncle Bob and while I was not his guardian (my mother was after my grandpa died), I know how intense and frustrating and difficult it is to 1. be a person with CP and 2. care for a person who has CP.

I think Neil's older daughter has a mild form of CP. 

I have the greatest respect for everyone who care for those with special needs.   I truly believe that folks with CP, Downs Syndrome, etc are angels sent by God.  They are our teachers, of love and compassion.  All of us are blessed by having them around.

Definitely depends on the jam, but give it time my friend ;)

The only song by Neil Young I thought I knew was Sweet Caroline. Turns out he didn't even write it. So it appears I've never heard any songs by him.

Relevance!


You're thinking of Neil Diamond!
Neil Young songs include: Rocking in a free world,  Cinnamon Girl, Hey Hey My My,  Like a Hurricane, Harvest Moon

Four Dead In Ohio

Bono's great, Neil's great... Of course I'd want them to get along but if not... I just don't care ! I'm more interested in Neil Young's book right now than any comment he'd do on other artists I may or may not like.
