After The Gold Rush

After The Gold Rush (2009)

After the Gold Rush is the third studio album by Canadian musician Neil Young. Released in August 1970 on Reprise Records, it was one of the four high-profile albums released by each member of folk rock collective Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young in the wake of their chart-topping 1970 album Déjà Vu. Gold Rush consisted mainly of country folk music, along with the rocking "Southern Man". Songs were inspired by the Dean Stockwell-Herb Berman screenplay After the Gold Rush.

[on Kurt Cobain, who quoted the Young song "My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)" in his suicide note] The fact that he left the lyrics to my song right there with him when he killed himself left a profound feeling on me, but I don`t think he was saying I have to kill myself because I don`t want to fade away. I don`t think he was interpreting the song in a negative way. It`s a song about artistic survival, and I think he had a problem with the fact that he thought he was selling out, and he didn`t know how to stop it. He was forced to do tours when he didn`t want to, forced into all kinds of stuff. I was trying to get a hold of him - because I had heard some of the things he was doing to himself - just to tell him it`s OK not to tour, it`s OK not to do these things, just take control of your life and make your music. Or, hey, don`t make music. But as soon as you feel like you`re out there pretending, you`re fucked. I think he knew that instinctively, but he was young and he didn`t have a lot of self-control. And who knows what other personal things in his life were having a negative impression on him at the time?

 

[about his 1974 tour] "Oh, that was a fabulous tour, one of my best. Over in England, The Rainbow . . . Bristol was the best ever . . . the Festival Hall . . . those were magical gigs. I did an encore at the latter with nobody there but Ahmet Ertegun, who owns Atlantic Records. I said, "Ahmet, I played so good tonight I think I deserve my own private encore". So we went out and played "Tonight`s The Night" for the fourth time that evening [bursts out laughing] with no one left in the theater.

 

1997: Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (as a member of Buffalo Springfield).

 

Raised in Omemee, Ontario. Scott Young Public School in Omemee is named after his father.

Junebug - "Approximate" year of release???
You are so off-base about the years those songs were released it's ridiculous.
"Approximate" would mean within a year or two.
In most cases you are off by about ten years.
Geez, dude, who did your research?
And who is he dating???
He's been married to the same woman since 87, and I'm sure he's never stepped out on her.
He was married briefly to Snodgress, but that's it. (1 year ago)
