As I’m rounding third and coming home to the conclusion of the Neil Young bio Shakey, I’m reminded of the above collaboration featuring Neil Young + Pearl Jam from the MTV Music Awards circa 1993. Somewhere I have a well-worn VHS tape with the same footage. I must have played it a hundred times. The instrument/stage destruction at the end of the performance is a result of poor monitor performance (according the Shakey) and a lot of pent up frustration.

I recently engaged in a lengthy discussion over at Via Chicago in reference to Young’s post 1980 output, where I declared his collaboration with Pearl Jam, Mirror Ball to be one of the high points since that time line marker. Feel free to discuss Young’s post 1980 output – the highs and lows – and, at some point I’ll be back with my review/recap of Shakey.
