Neil Young at 68: Releasing ‘Cellar Door’ Concerts
Neil Young turns 68 today, born on November 12, 1945 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Neil’s Archive Performance Series continues on December 10th with another release.
According to rollingstone.com, the next in the series is Live at the Cellar Door, recorded during Young’s six-show stand at Washington D.C.’s tiny venue, the Cellar Door, between November 30th, 1970 and December 2nd, 1970.
Never one to mince words, here’s what Neil himself says about his archive series:
“Some of it is good, some of it is crap that wasn’t released – there’s a reason. Take a look, see what it is. That’s what a fuckin’ archive is about, not “Here’s Neil Young in all his wonderfulness – the great, phenomenal fucking wonderfulness.” That’s not what I want.”
Last month, Neil wrote about climate change and his views on it at his website, and announced there’s good news about it:
“According to soil scientists, transitioning from industrial agriculture to organic farming and ranching could sequester thousands of pounds-per-ace of climate destabalizing CO2 every year…”
