To all my Canadian brothers and sisters around the world, happy Canada Day!
I know I just posted a live Neil Young video yesterday, but not only does this video have Neil Young, it also has the The Band, AND Joni Mitchell singing backing vocals offstage. It doesn’t get much more Canadian than that. OH!, and they’re singing ‘Helpless’.

It’s nice that I have a bunch of fans and friends from Commonwealth countries, thank you for keeping in touch through my site, and I hope you’re all having a lovely warm Boxing Day with your loved ones!

Here’s one of my favourite Commonwealth songwriters, Neil Young ‘Live at the BBC’:
Happy Thanksgiving to all of my lovely Canadian friends!
While the farmer folks are out pulling in the last haul from the harvest, I’ve got some Leonard Cohen and Neil Young playing on the musicbox. Obviously I live simultaneously in the 19th Century and 1960s.
