Living With War

Living With WarWar! What is it good for? Absolutely nothing ... except for inspiring creative sparks like Living With War. Neil Young's new song collection (a self-described "metal folk protest") is a passionate call-to-arms against the Iraq War and its excesses (soldiers coming home in boxes, lying leaders, telephone taps, etc.).


Anyway back to Neil Young’s new recording “ Living With War “

" Sibila Vargas on CNN interviews Neil :
Ms. Vargas unleashed what may be the single worst and stupidest question in the history of television interviews:

VARGAS: This music, right, is already causing a stir, actually. You've got one song that's called "Let's Impeach the President." What is this song about? "

YOUNG, on people will dismiss or belittle his opinion because he's originally from Canada: I'm proud to be a Canadian. I'm proud to be living in the United States. I'm proud to be paying taxes here for 40 years. I'm proud of my three American children, my lovely American wife, my American family, and all of the people who have supported me here for 40 years. It just so happens that I came down here because I'm an artist, and I came down here because, in Los Angeles, I could get things happening and so I could make it so people could hear me. That's why I came down here. This is a great country, and I believe in this. But I think there's a conscience in the country, and I don`t think it's being spoken. Only part of it is being spoken. It's a full thing. Everybody needs to get into it; everybody needs a chance to say what they think.

YOUNG, on possible backlash: I'm not in the least bit concerned. I expect it. I respect other people's opinions. That's part of what makes the United States and Canada and all free countries great, is the fact that you can differ with your friend and you can still sit down at the same table and break bread with your friend.

Neil Young's LIVING WITH WAR: 'It may just be the Fahrenheit 9/11 of rock'
BRAD BLOG Guest Blogger Jim Cirile Gets an Exclusive Pre-Release Listen to Neil Young's Groundbreaking New Protest Album…

Neil Young wants to keep on rockin' the free world.
His new record, Living With War, makes very clear that if the Bush regime is allowed to continue, there may not be a free world to rock for much longer.

And as to whether Neil Young appreciates the enormity of the attack on 9/11 , here is an article from Media Matters .org :

Gibson suggested "forgetful" Neil Young watch United 93 to refresh memory of 9-11 -- but Young wrote a song about Flight 93

On the April 28 edition of Fox News' The Big Story, host John Gibson alleged that singer/songwriter Neil Young's latest album, Living With War (Reprise, May 2006), which is critical of President Bush and the war in Iraq, indicates that Young is "forgetful" and has "amnesia," and that the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks are "a distant memory" for him. Gibson suggested Young go see the newly released movie, United 93 (Universal, April 2006), a fictionalized account of events aboard United Airlines Flight 93, one of the planes hijacked on September 11, which crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Gibson even questioned whether Young "would accept free tickets from me" to see the movie. But far from "forget[ing]" about Flight 93, Young wrote a song in 2001 titled "Let's Roll," "[i]nspired by a Newsweek story recounting the fatal flight," as The Washington Post noted at the time.

The title and refrain of "Let's Roll" refer to the words reportedly spoken by passenger Todd Beamer before he and several other passengers attempted to storm the aircraft's cockpit and regain control of the aircraft. From "Let's Roll" (Are You Passionate? Reprise, April 2002):
I know I said I love you,

I know you know it's true,

I got to put the phone down,

And do what we gotta do.

One's standing in the aisleway,

Two more at the door,

We got to get inside there,

Before they kill some more.

Time is runnin' out ... let's roll.

Time is runnin' out ... let's roll.

( the review is mostly negative noting Neil Young is a Canadian & much of what his songs refer to is old news ??? but the war in Iraq continues as do the renditions & torture & the lies & the Propaganda - the Washington Post I guess needs to vent out of a sense of guilt & shame since it has for the most part become part of the Bush Regime’s Propaganda Machine like CNN & CBS etc. Its hard to believe this was the newspaper which broke the Watergate Story & the Pentagon Papers but oh how the Times have changed but not for the better as Dylan had hoped as we move backwards to the fifties & the Good Old Cold War Era !!! )
