I have five words for your been-there, done-that attitude: Neil Young and freaking Crazy Horze. I'm sorry, that's six words. Now, I've been to the big Picnic before, and I remember a lot of good-timing drunks yee-hawing to honky-tonk music - and it just might be worth the sunburn to see the jaws drop when Neil and company open a can of feedback on that crowd.
