But are you at all into Neil Young? I have to say, in a few songs I get a bit of a Neil Young vibe. Just curious :)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZQH8jWnvQg - Cover of Tell Me Why.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BpVT2ddmibs - Sunshine State - (I know the truth - yeah, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell were Canadians.) Which I assume he wrote them in because both Joni Mitchell and Neil Young wrote songs about California, The Golden State....

Neil Young is an amazing songwriter.
I'd rather be the one who loves than to be loved and never even know.

Woah! How have I not seen these? Tell Me Why is most definitely one of my top-favourite Neil Young songs, so pleased to hear a great cover :3

Next time I see you good sir, I must implore that you have some NY in your set!

EDIT: And I just realised, After The Gold Rush is my top listened to album on iTunes, followed by Mirror Ball. Good ol' Neil.

After the Gold Rush is indeed a brilliant album, kudos frank.

I'm obsessed with Neil Young and am on a continuing quest to own everything he's ever put his name to. The only things I'm missing to my knowledge are the 'Journey Through The Past' album (never released on CD) and one or two CSNY releases. I think my favourite album is 'Live At Massey Hall 1971. If I had to pick a favourite studio album, gun to my head, it would either be After The Goldrush, Harvest or Rust Never Sleeps. So I'd be dead because I can't choose.
I'd love to see Frank cover some NY tunes...Helpless? After The Goldrush? Don't Let It Bring You Down? Pocahontas? You know you want to...

Just imagined Frank Turner donning a vocoder and heading down a Trans-esque path for his next album.

I think that could honestly be the wisest career move he could make. Or maybe not. But at least it would make for excellent entertainment.
