There is a god: Neil Young IS the JazzFest T.B.A.

neilyoung@ZackTeibloom I was starting to have my doubts about New Orleans Jazz Fest. Last weekend they announced that the big artist addition was Bon Jovi. Andy thinks we’ll get drunk and enjoy that show, but I can’t see myself enjoying that under any circumstance. Then they announce that Aretha Franklin backed out. I was getting less psyched for the festival by the second. Then they threw us a bone. A bone with an r at the end. We got Neil.

The man who defines rock ‘n’ roll more than any living person is headlining Sunday May 3rd. Hopefully we’ll run into him and Andy will have something better to say this time than “You’re Neil Young!”

    Pshh. I didn’t say “You’re Neil Young.” Telling him who he is would just be silly. I was just too drunk to get anything out, but to point at him and say “NEIL YOUNG!!!”

    No amount of your hating will bring me down at Bon Jovi. I am determined to have fun at that show, despite you.

    It’s my life. (Fist Pump. Fist Pump.) Kill me now. I think we may have to part ways for the Jovi of Bon show. It’ll be too much like when we saw Fogerty and I was laughing at how into it you were. That’s not good for anyone.

    I will never, ever put Bon Jovi and CCR in the same category. CCR was one of the first classic rock bands I ever got into (thanks dad).

    I’m not going to apologize that I find enjoyment in things that are so bad they’re good. Bill Simmons’ unintentional comedy factor if you will. This includes rock bands from the 80’s that are impossible not to sing along to when drunk and terrible comedies.

    the good news is it only takes about 10 minutes to get from one end of the fest to the other. so you can see 10 minutes of Bon. and all the other amazing music at the same time :)

    … Two Words: GOSPEL TENT. It is heaven on earth.

    ps. Teibs i will serenade you to “always” during the jovi. Shore, you can get some of my “shower diva”ness too

    Andy- the odds of your dad reading comments on a post I made about Neil Young are about as good as your mom reading me calling you a schmuck for saying she can’t sing well. Either way, I’m sticking by my hating on Bon Jovi and CCR.

    Sami- Sing me spanish techno! Or anything. Anything but Bon Fucking Jovi.
