Neil Young is a legend for me. There are many who can’t stand him but I find him one of the most amazing artists ever.
I’ll probably change this clip quite often because there is just so much of Neil to see. This particular clip is taken from The Last Waltz which is The Bands farewell show. Pretty much anyone who was anyone at the time gets a bit of stage time but some special magic happens when Neil walks on and just this 3 chord masterpiece called Helpless. In The Story of Rock and Roll I discuss the power of one man and a guitar and this is a very good example of what I am talking about. You could learn these chords in an afternoon but you’d never perform the song like this.
