life with war

A few days ago, I posted about Neil Young’s much anticipated anti-Bush record, “Life with War.” What I didn’t mention at the time is that, according to rumor, the entire record will start streaming over Neil Young’s website, in its entirety, this Friday, April 28. (It will be available for digital download on May 2, and should be in stores shortly thereafter.)

Pretty cool footage of Neil Young being interviewed about the album on CNN’s “Showbiz Tonight” is up on YouTube. (via Mouse Musings)

If you have to, start saving for the CD now. When it comes out, we need to make the single, “Impeach the President,” number one on the charts… Start telling your friends.

    I like the idea: an anthem for the impeachment movement. Play it on every streetcorner, around the clock.

    If it’s halfway decent, I plan to stay spend hours on the phone calling radio stations and requesting it.

    I tried that when “This note’s for you came out” but we were up against the very tough “Hold On” by Wilson Phillips, “It must have been love” by Roxette, and “Nothing Compares 2 U” by Sinead O’Connor.

    Fortunately the individuals responsible for each of those are now dead.

    Can’t seem to get his site this morning. Most likely, it crashed due to volume. (Or, is there perhaps a more sinister explanation?)

    Here’s a quote from today’s New York Times:

    “We are the silent majority now, and we haven’t done a damn thing,” Mr. Young said. “We’ve stood by and watched this happen. But there’s more of us than there is of them, and we have to do something. When people start talking and see they can get away with it, it’s going to happen everywhere. It’s going to be a landslide, it’s going to be a tidal wave. This is just the tip of it.”

    I just got this comment by way of email and thought that I’d share it:

    i have been a fan of his since buffalo springfield. he is a great song writer but a wimp when it comes to war. he always blames america (and so do many others) that we are the bad guy.

    when are these people going to wake up and realize that we didn’t start the war the radical mid east people did in 9/11 and now we are taking it to them and we aren’t going to stop.

    VERY CONFUSING THAT ARTIST WANT TO BLAME AMERICA FOR EVERYTHING WRONG IN THE WORLD WHEN WE ARE THE ONES THAT PAY AND SACRIFICED BILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO HELP.

    HOW ABOUT AN ARTIST WHO UNDERSTANDS THE TRUTH AND PROMOTE THEM INSTEAD OF A NEIL YOUNG WHO DOESN’T HAVE THE COURAGE TO WRITE GOOD SONGS ABOUT AMERICA.

    DON W. SMITH

    I HOPE THIS GETS TO YOUNG

    I like that he’s writing to me in hopes that it’ll get to Neil.

    And, for the record, I’ve been listening to to the record, and it’s incredibly pro-America.
