We informed you that Neil Young has jumped on board the “Impeach Bush” bandwagon. Check out the video interview where Young provides his own perspective on his new song and album. YouTube’s sort of slow today, so here’s an excerpt:
Young: It’s a record about unification.
Interviewer: Surely though, [I mean?] you say it’s a record about unification but with a title like “Let’s Impeach the President”…
Young: That’s not the title of the record. The record is called…
Interviewer: Not the record, but the song.
Young: Yeah, right.
Interviewer: “Let’s Impeach the President.” That is pretty strong. Strong words.
Young: Yeah. Yeah. I think it is. I think it’s called for. And so do a lot of other people.
It was also a great interview about freedom and post-9/11 mentalities which all Americans, no matter how they feel about the war, should watch. Brian Doherty is cynical about whether this song will create political change. I don’t expect any song to directly change the world — but it can provide a common public voice (like “Ohio” did) to the voices of millions and millions of angered people.
