Graham Nash, of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, has a new book out, Wild Tales: A Rock & Roll Life. And that means he’s doing interviews, many interviews. A couple of weeks ago, he spent an excellent hour on The Howard Stern Show (seriously). Next, it was off to chat with the more cerebral Terry Gross on NPR’s Fresh Air. In the midst of the interview (listen online here), Gross asked Nash to talk about his friendship with Neil Young, a man Nash has called “the strangest of my friends.” Just what makes him strange? Nash explains: The man is totally committed to the muse of music. And he’ll do anything for good music. And sometimes it’s very strange. I was at Neil’s ranch one day just south of San Francisco, and he has a beautiful lake with red-wing blackbirds. And he asked me if I wanted to hear his new album, “Harvest.” And I said sure, let’s go into the studio and listen. Oh, no. That’s not what Neil had in mind. He said get into the rowboat. I said get into the rowboat? He said, yeah ...

My sweet cousin, Judi Jones gave me the of all numbers! Thanks Judi! 1. My mother's water broke two months early during a bowling tournament my father and his brothers were in. When the nurse came in to the waiting room, my father asked if it was a boy or a girl. The nurse answered "Yes." 2. The only way you can tell my brother and I are twins is by our middle names. Danny Dee & Lori Lee. I was born with blond hair and blue eyes, Danny is brown/brown. 3. In the 6th grade I was the second tallest kid in class at 5'7", Danny was the second shortest at 4'9" (he didn't outgrow me until our Junior year in High School) 4.

Thank you to all who took a few moments to wish me a happy birthday last week. I was in San Francisco for nine days, and got to see Neil Young play in Golden Gate Park on my birthday. Had a great day! Thanks again.
Highlights, surprises and pictures from Outside Lands at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, CA from August 10 to 12, featuring Neil Young, Metallica, Big Gigantic and more.
I had the most epic vacation in San Francisco going to the Outside Lands Music Festival and spending time with my brother Paul and his partner Sarah. Saw Foo Fighters, Metallica, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Explosions in the Sky, Alabama Shakes, Norah Jones, Franz Ferdinand, Regina Spektor, Electric Guest, Jack White, and Stevie Wonder.
Neil Young Mettalica and Stevie Wonder were headliners at The Outside Lands Festival this past weekend in Golden Gate Park . I read 180,000 people showed up over the 3 days. By the time I looked it was sold out. I guess it was very cold Friday night. 30 miles away from the park temps were in the 100's so a lot of people showed up thinking the city would be warm. Never go to San Francisco without warm clothes.
It's the end of Day 4 of the Outside Lands trip, and I've seen the mind-blowing Rio Grande Gulch in Taos, explored the Bellagio and Caesar's Palace in Vegas, stayed at a Travellodge in Dookietown,USA, and tonight I got to see Andrew Bird, Beck, and Antibalas (among others) in San Francisco. Finishing up Day 4, I saw Neil Young with Crazy Horse, played card games at a Frisco Irish Pub, and walked the night streets of San Francisco with good musician friends. Tomorrow should be fun, too.
Jacky just called and he said they're almost there lol. They gonna proceed to Golden Gate Park & watch the band called "Justice" and missed Neil Young coz he's already playing as we speak. Thank you Lord for your guidance and ask to still continue to protect them and be with them throughout the duration of this weekend's music festival in San Francisco. More artists/musicians performing tomorrow or Sunday like Stevie Wonder,Foo Fighters etc. And Lord, as they go also to their resting place Wharf, may you keep them safe and sound. Thank you Lord for your love & mercy amen.
Living in the Bay Area is great, but sometimes there's an embarrassment of riches. This weekend, I need to choose among four major music festivals. San Francisco has Outside Lands, with Neil Young, Stevie Wonder, Metallica, Foo Fighters, Norah Jones and many, many more. Santa Cruz has the 50th Anniversary of the Cabrillo Music Festival, with some very interesting modern classical performances. Down in Hollister is the Good Old Fashioned Bluegrass Festival, which is always fun. Finally just a mile away is the San Jose Jazz Festival, with Dianne Reeves, Wayne Henderson, Terence Blanchard, etc. How can I possibly decide?
Of Monsters and Men and Tennis are among five bands worth a look on Neil Young day at Outside Lands in San Francisco.
OK. I'm a little overwhelmed. We actually get to see Stevie Wonder and Neil Young, Jack White, Foo Fighters, City and Colour, Andrew Bird, Reggie Watts, and the Kills...under the San Francisco sky! Talk about a dream coming true.
Stevie Wonder, Metallica, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Jack White and the Foo Fighters lead the lineup for the fifth annual Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival, which will invade San Francisco's Golden Gate Park from Aug. 10-12.
I was reading the latest edition of Rolling Stone magazine last night when I came across an ad for a huge concert being held in San Francisco in August. And lone behold with names like Stevie Wonder, Neil Young, Jack White, Foo Fighters, Nora Jones, Metallica and Skrillex also performing is South Africa's Die Antword. Now out of all the brilliant Artists and Band's that South Africa has produced over the years who would ever of thought that a band like Die Antword would be making waves world wide. There must be some truth in their song "I Fink U Freeky and I Like U A Lot"! Honestly, what is this world coming to?
Neil Young Canadian rock legend Neil Young has suffered to stay green. In November of 2010, Young's converted hybrid car sparked a warehouse fire in San Francisco, destroying some of his vintage guitars and memorabilia. It wasn't his first time using eco-friendly transportation, as his 2004 North American Tour ran entirely on biodiesel.

When I was 16 years old I saw a little blurb in the paper about a concert at Winterland in San Francisco. I wanted to go so bad. There would be tons of great musicians. It was an all night event on Thanksgiving complete with turkey dinner and breakfast the next morning. My mother would only agree to let me go if my brother went with me. My brother would not go with me. That concert was the "Last Waltz". Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Diamond, Van Morrison so many greats were there for the Band's last concert. A few Years Later by brother took me to see the movie and boy did he regret not taking me to that concert.
