Neil Young and Jonathan Demme on “Neil Young Journeys”

Thursday, June 07, 2012

Neil Young and filmmaker Jonathan Demme talk about the documentary “Neil Young Journeys,” their third collaboration. It documents a drive Neil Young took in May 2011 from his hometown of Omemee, Ontario, to downtown Toronto's iconic Massey Hall, where he performed the last two nights of his solo world tour. During the drive, Young recounted introspective stories from his youth to Demme, who wove these tales together with his music. “Neil Young Journeys” opens in New York June 29.

Thanks to Neil, Jonathan and Leonard. Great interview. Getting lost in a song with Neil Young is something to aspire to.

"Four dead in Oh hi O" Something not to forget.

Apropos of Neil's being Canadian and all, is he a curler?

I love Neil Young, cannot get enough of his music. I hope I get to see him on tour this fall, and for certain will see this movie. A great artist, a steady and significant contributor to creative resistance to oppression.

Can you please ask them where we can get "Neil Young's Trunk Show?" We saw it at SXSW three years ago & have been eager to see it again. Can't wait til the 29th. Thank you!
