My local paper has one of those "celebrity birthday" columns, and I noticed that today is Neil Young's 60th birthday (Lordy!). Anyway, the column calls him a "country singer." What???<br><br>. . . . . Here's lookin' at [color:red]you</font color=red> kid.

Neil's pretty hard to pin down. I guess "country" is as good a description as any. Did you catch him last week on Conan O'Brien? Four night. Six songs. One interview. And he even participated in a comedy bit. He appeared pretty sharp mentally but you can tell the brain surgery has taken a bit of a toll. He was slower and seems to have put on weight. It will be interesting to see if he gears up for another tour.<br><br>

Wait, he's rock n' roll. No, wait, folk. No no, punk rock. Heavy metal. Techno. Grunge. Rockabilly. Big band. Blues.<br><br>There's an old gag that, if you don't like what Neil's doing right now, just wait. It will change soon enough.<br><br>Personally, I'm glad he suffers from Musical Attention Deficit Disorder. It's been a wild and sometimes frustrating 40-year ride but it hasn't been boring.<br><br>
From "Shakey" by Jimmy McDonough:<br><br>[color:blue]Ironically, "Heart of Gold" would be bumped from the charts by a clone – America's moronic "Horse with No Name." Young even received a congratulatory phone call from his father, who heard the record on the radio and assumed it was his son.</font color=blue><br><br>Yeah, moronic is right. "’cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain." Yeeeesh.<br><br>
