An indyRock Ideal review.
Hey, I attended the Neil Young & Crazy Horse gig at the Espárrago Rock Festival on Sunday. It was the first time I have ever see them live, and I wasn't disappointed: it was just amazing!!!
The weather was pretty chilly at night, and the the show started at 1:20 am and went on until well past 3:30 am! Regardless, they rocked hard and nobody left the main stage until the final note was played. There were lots of Rusties in the crowd but you could also see that most people were being exposed to the band's music live for the first time. Nevertheless they stood there mesmerized by the man and his band for the whole 2+ hour set...
I reckon people who either claim to listen to music or actually MAKE music should see these guys playing with that much intensity and passion after more than 30 years of doing it. Eveything simply falls into place, and you quickly realize two things:
After both encores, the whole band (plus Pegi & Astrid) stood in the middle of the stage, took a bow and waved goodbye to everyone, with a huge smile on their faces. I don't think I've ever seen a musician (or a person for that matter) who seemed so happy and content after a gig. I'm gonna remember that moment for the rest of my life...
