Talking with NME, the legendary Neil Young said that the concerts of bands who embark on Farewell Tours are bullshit.
Read what he said:
“I’m going out with Cher. Cher and I are doing a retirement tour. When I retire, people will know, because I’ll be dead.
“They’ll know, “He’s not coming back! He retired.” But I’m not gonna say, “I’m not coming back.” What kind of bullshit is that? I could go out and play if I felt like it, but I don’t feel like it. I’ve got a great band. I’ve got two great bands – I’ve got Promise of the Real and Crazy Horse. They’re both great bands and they’re different. But they both can play a lot of shit.
“Promise of the Real plays almost anything I can do. And they’re great. they got the energy, everything. Everybody on that stage has the vibe. There’s not one ounce of fear anywhere.”
The future of Crazy Horse
“Well, we have an incredible album that’s in the can that’s a recent album. Alchemy. Then we have a 2001 album, Toast. We have a 1969/70 album, early days, which is a lot of stuff nobody’s heard,” he said.
“So when I do go out, I have things to put out there. Right now, I’m not ready to tour right now. I have a funny feeling in my body that I listen to, and it just says no. It will say yes when it’s ready. I’m just listening to the muse, and the muse just says take a break.”
