David Grohl of Foo Fighters and Neil Young

From The Associated Press By SOLVEJ SCHOU, on David Grohl and Neil Young:
Grohl, married with a cemented home life, said he most looks up to Neil Young, a relentless musician with “a beautiful family, who makes albums when he feels like it and is just as bad-ass as he was 30 years ago.”

From RollingStone.com: Foo Fighters : Foos Reclaim Their Honor : News by AUSTIN SCAGGS(Posted Apr 29, 2005):
The album's title, In Your Honor, came after Grohl spent time on the campaign trail with John Kerry. "We'd pull in to small towns, and thousand of people would come to be rescued by this man," says Grohl. "It's not a political record, but what I saw inspired me." The title track kicks off the electric disc (which features making-of footage on the flip side). "I wanted to have songs that make people beat the shit out of each other the first time they hear them," Grohl says.

The Foos plan to tour the U.S. later this year, playing two gigs in each town: an arena-rock extravaganza and an acoustic set at a more intimate venue. "We're so fucking lucky," says Grohl. "When we play the Bridge School Benefit, we don't have to wonder who's on Neil Young's crew -- it's the dudes in the overalls with gray ponytails down to their asses. That's what I want: to make a life out of this band."

I'm just glad we got Obama instead of Gore or Kerry.
saw a band called Oedipus www.oedipusband.com play at an Obama event last year. I wonder, do these bands get paid to do these presidential campaign events?

Its amazing to see how Neil Young has struck up musical collaborations throughout his career. From Buffalo Springfield to Crazy Horse to Crosby, Stills, & Nash -- these have been his most renowned influences and inspirations. myspace.com/elikamahony

in 1974, i just started smoking pot. shortly after that, i was introduced to HARVEST. which i listen to every day, many times more than once. i could not get enough of Neil and CSNY. when i heard "TEACH YOUR CHILDREN" i went on a mission. it took me 36 years, but i came up with a CODE YOU CAN LIVE NY. i wrote it for young people. it is copy written, but not published as of yet. it is called: THE WARRIOR'S CODE, subtittled : awareness is the key to the energy that unlocks the power of wisdom! there are 14 codes.
1. Doing the right this is more important than being right.
2.Any one that tells you their way is only way is full of shit.
3.Don't believe what people say, only what they do.
4.If someone uses guilt against you, they don't love you.
5.Just because you can't be perfect, doesn't mean you don't strive for it.
6.Never pity, people who deserve it, don't want it. People who want it don't deserve it.
7. Don't hope, hope is what you do when you don't have faith. hope is what you when you can't do anything else.
8. 99 % of the time, the easy way is the wrong way of doing anything.
9. Money is not an ends, but a means.
10. Knowing always makes things better, so communicate.
11. Never, be shamed into doing something you don't believe in, feel is wrong, or don't want to do.
12. THE UNIVERSE IS BALANCED.
13. ENERGY IS THE UNIVERSAL COMMON DENOMINATOR.
14. ORDER IS THE KEY TO THE UNIVERSE.
