ACL 2012 Day 2: Neil Young & Crazy Horse

Neil Young and Jack White were the headliners on Day 2 of ACL, playing at the exact same time. Who would you choose to see? Neil Young is a legend, and Neil Young & Crazy Horse is a legendary band that you wouldn't get to see normally. So I chose to see Neil Young.

The band opened up with an extended jam of  “Love and Only Love,” showing Neil Young can shred with them best of them before breaking into a number of great songs from past NY & CH albums and their upcoming Psychedelic Pill, out Oct. 30.  The acoustic version of “The Needle and the Damage Done” hypnotized the crowd, and he dedicated “Cinnamon Girl” "to my sweetheart who's out there, somewhere."

What a great way to end Day 2. Sorry, Jack White, maybe next time.
