Agreed.

Show was good - a solid B+.
But it could have used a lot more music and a lot less noise.

Crazy Horse Rides to the Rescue


By CHRISTOPHER JOHN FARLEY

Neil Young says he was invited to perform at Madison Square Garden on Dec. 12 for a major celebrity concert to aid the victims of Hurricane Sandy, but instead, in his typical independent way, he's hosting a more intimate benefit of his own in Atlantic City.

Mr. Young, who has released two albums this year as well as his autobiography, "Waging Heavy Peace," will be the featured performer on Thursday at "A Special Evening with Neil Young and Crazy Horse" at the Borgata Hotel Casino. Proceeds from the concert will go to the American Red Cross to help storm victims.

Enlarge Image

Victoria Will/Associated Press
Neil Young will perform Thursday night at the Borgata in Atlantic City to aid victims of Hurricane Sandy.

The 67-year-old rocker hopes that, in the wake of the storm, politicians will spend more time on such issues as extreme weather, climate change and clean energy. "When you think about the financial problems we have, they're nothing compared to these problems," he said. "It has to do with oxygen. It has to do with oceans dying. It has to do with life and the balance of nature."

Mr. Young spoke with The Wall Street Journal via phone about the benefit, his memoirs and building cleaner cars.

Where were you when Sandy hit?

I was on the West Coast. Like everyone else, I was watching this on TV.

What was going through your mind as you watched?

What was going through my mind is how much it reminded me of some of the scenes in "An Inconvenient Truth." I went, "Oh, well here it comes."

More

For more arts news go to WSJ.com/speakeasy.

What have you been doing with trying to produce cleaner cars?

I have a car that I've built that produces 86% less CO2 into the atmosphere. A reduction of 86% over gasoline. This car—it's a 1959 Lincoln—it's a huge gigantic car, that everywhere it goes it produces 86% less damage. It's an electric car with a cellulosic ethanol generator. Cellulosic ethanol is a fuel that's made from waste. We have to do something or we're going to kill the planet. It's just obvious that we have to make a change.

How did you arrive at the decision that you wanted to stage this benefit in Atlantic City?

I saw that I was invited to do a big benefit at Madison Square Garden. I saw that it was a star-studded television evening. And I realized that I was just a drop in the bucket. There was already enough star power at that thing to do whatever it could do. Adding me would not make any difference. But I did think that if I went down and had a performance where the damage was, that would be a different approach and whatever I was able to add, I could add. If people want to come and see us they can come right down to the scene and they can see what's left of the boardwalk.

You've played Atlantic City before. What makes the area special for you?

This is Vacation City. This is where people go to have a good time. This is a reward for the fruits of our labor. People work and they take a couple of weeks off, and they bring their families down there. It got pretty severely trashed. So it means a lot.

In your book, you talk about writing your 1970 song "Ohio" about the Kent State shootings; you recorded it the day after you heard about the tragedy and it was on the radio soon after that. Do you think a song like that would get played on the radio today?

It's a different world today. Music is entrenched in the establishment system. The radio is so different. There are other ways of getting it out there, which I am exploring.

Corrections & Amplifications:

A benefit concert for the American Red Cross at the Borgata Hotel Casino in Atlantic City featuring Neil Young and Crazy Horse will be held on Thursday, Dec. 6. An earlier version of this article incorrectly said the concert would be held on Wednesday.

Concert Review and Video of the Moment: Bridgeport, CT: Neil Young & Crazy Horse Concert Reviews - 12/4/12

"Fuckin' Up"
Bridgeport, CT: Neil Young & Crazy Horse Concert Reviews - 12/4/12

The Video of the Moment is a rather remarkable version of "Fuckin' Up". In particular, note in the first 30 seconds or so that Neil goes down on his knees than back while playing. What a fuck up?!

Concert Review of the Moment is from Bridgeport, CT: Neil Young & Crazy Horse Concert Reviews - 12/4/12 by The Zuma Band:
We were on the floor this time after sitting in Boston last week. GA is the place. If anything, the overall audience was an even greater age mix. Seemed to be a full range from 20s to 30s to 40s to 50s and over on the floor. I was dead center, perhaps 30 feet back. Toward the end there was a lot of pogo-ing, from what were clearly much younger people, and I think that's something the boys on stage were clearly aware of and getting off on it. No gentle toe tapping, for sure. Their mood, if anything was possibly even a bit more buoyant than Boston. Lots of smiles, lots of mugging and gesturing. During the wild extended "F@#kin' UP" NY pointed to someone, said "You're a f@$k up!" and mocked and pantomimed their smartphone use. His getting on his knees and then prone on the floor was even more pronounced and theatrical.

Something the band did (at the end of "Hey Hey"?) that I didn't notice at Boston was a chest thumping monkey/ape "ooga ooga" thing that the crowd picked up and repeated back. Pretty funny...did they do this anywhere else? Should become a tradition...

Lots of rhythmic audience clapping during "Ramada Inn." I detected a slight shift in Ralph's beat- almost a subtle bosa nova thing, which I think is what really gets the clapping going. The audience knows this song now- I hope it enters the canon, as it has such a great and deep groove. The other thing is, it is perfectly timed. It is neither too long nor too short. It has a distinct arc of lyrical segments set between the melodic guitar work. This isn't jamming; it is a deliberate, distinct structure with room for improvisation, but contained within its boundaries.

All thoughout the performance I scanned the crowd in the entire arena. I did not see any unusual exodus after the new and longer songs or at any other time; just the usual movement in and out of a venue that size. The place was certainly packed all over, and there was a lot of dancing up in the stands as well as on the floor. Total arena standing ovation at the end, and even greater noise for an encore than in Boston.

BTW, getting to parking at Webster arena is f#@ked up. We arrived with plenty of time, but had to crawl the last few blocks. The cop said that it was a chronic problem. They f@$ked up the planning.

ps ,
I beg to differ with jocar. As a guitarist I pay close attention to NY's playing. He will use riffs to anchor a song, along with the chord structure, but all the other melodic passages are unique within each song, as well as from song to song. He will do similar things, but not the same thing. "Ramada Inn" is a perfect example of this. I think it is a textbook example of how he spins complexity out of simplicity as he will builds the song at different places on the fretboard and through his varied strummming and picking techniques. At the sonic complexities of the different effects combinations he hits and you get a very rich mixture.

I'd agree that I've heard better acoustics, but I blame that on the arena. For instance, Patti Smith's vocals were set too low in the mix. OTOH I thought Neil's vocals were OK, but his guitar was mixed a bit too low. I think in barns like that place the best sound would be back near the soundboard and the worst is probably in the seats along the sides- too much bounced sound and not enough balance.

Thanks The Zuma Band! Great review. Glad you guys got a good show. That version of "F@#kin' Up" is pretty f@#k' up, if we do say so ourselves. But it feels so good!

the benefit concert in AC was amazing. we're so, so glad we went! Trey Anastasio's set was silly and a lot of fun for the Phish fans in the crowd (solo acoustic...i have a setlist if anyone is interested) and Neil Young and Crazy Horse blew the place away. My My Hey Hey was a highlight, as was Like a Hurricane and Rockin in the Free World. no sit ins or collaborations between the two, and Trey didn't do Albuquerque which everyone assumed as a given since he's covered it often in the past. but a great night nonetheless :)

...trying to think of the name of the opening act. Everest. that's it. i don't know anything about them but they had some fans in the crowd, too.

regarding the statement from Neil Young someone posted above...news about the destruction of the Atlantic City Boardwalk from Sandy is largely hype...the section that was shown in photos and on tv has been rotting and largely missing for YEARS and is at the far north end of the boardwalk, well away from the casinos and everything else that gets attention/funding in AC. i hope it gets replaced because the locals would really enjoy that...but to say it was lost to Sandy is a complete misnomer. Sandy did them a favor and swept away what has been a safety hazard for as long as i can remember.

there is so much that HAS been lost to the storm. everyone is trying really hard to be accurate in their reporting these days because some images from AC in particular that made it into the news feeds in the days after the storm weren't really storm damage at all. i'm sure Neil Young got the full picture once he got into town. there's plenty of real damage to be found all along the coastline, so to have that one image of the missing boardwalk be the one everyone seizes on as a sign of the destruction is somewhat...i don't know. disheartening isn't the word. but it's weird, and i'm glad to see some press releases and other news items trying to set the record straight. i'd hate for the real damage to be discounted because someone decided to capitalize on the storm by filing false insurance claims.

different. it looks really, really different. and so much property has been co-opted for sorting the debris into recyclable and non-recyclable waste while they try to figure out where to send it. baseball and football fields and parking lots dedicated each to one thing: sodden mattresses, or lumber from downed structures, or refrigerators and other home appliances, or cars. it's bizarre in photos, and absolutely horrifying to see in person.

we took Lucy to our little beach here in town (a bay beach, protected from the worst of it) on Saturday, and along the way we saw some of the worst of what our town got. one home sits on 8 foot pilings, and the water mark was another 6 or more feet up the actual house...so storm surges in that area were 15 feet or higher. the drive to the beach was a wasteland of marinas and homes that didn't make it through the storm. it was incredible.

there are hundreds of boats stranded on Forsythe Refuge (i took Karen there when you all visited that time in April) that washed up during the storm. that's protected land and they've been putting it out there for weeks that if you're missing yours, call them to schedule a site visit.

our little bay beach is TINY now, where it used to be a decent size. most of it is covered in dune grasses that washed up on the shore in huge mounds, several feet tall and covering the majority of what remains of the beach. i posted photos on Facebook (Lucy's first beach day) but not of the bad stuff. there's too much of that, and i've made a point of not shooting any destruction we didn't need for insurance purposes. i thought i might, before i saw it in person. but it was just too sad, and too daunting, and too...yeah. way too personal. so many people lost everything. insurance, for those who had it, doesn't come close to covering the cost of rebuilding and replacing, but it helps. those who didn't have flood insurance are largely SOL. :(

there is progress, though. faster in some places than others, but all progress is good. the waiting and wondering was super hard.

Jason's folks find out this week or next whether their house will be condemned. that's WAY faster than anyone anticipated. their town won't be inhabitable for a very long time yet, but at least they'll be able to start to rebuild sooner than later. progress :)

so glad you guys were able to give a day to help out the center in Breezy. thank you :heart: i bet it was so, so needed...even if they do have Workzilla on their side :) :heart:
