My Dad took my brothers and I to see Neil Young at the Sydney Entertainment Centre on Saturday. It was amazing. Dad loves Neil Young, and has for years, so we were raised listening to Harvest. It was incredible to see him live- and I was reminded of his influence over vast swaths of the musicians I like… I think the vast majority of musicians I really like- with the exception of Hip-Hop and Classical artists- have their precursor in either Nick Drake or Neil Young. Witnessing their musical heritage live was phenomenal.
I’d write about the gig itself, but there is no way I could top Bernard Zuel’s account of the evening.
