Meanwhile in other news, with Ozzy, Paul Simon and Sir Elton John are all planning to say goodbye to touring over the coming moths, Neil Young has cited farewell tours as bull**it! Speaking to Rolling Stone the rocker joked,
‘I’m going out with Cher. Cher and I are doing a retirement tour. When I retire, people will know, because I’ll be dead. They’ll know, ‘He’s not coming back! He retired!’ But I’m not gonna say, ‘I’m not coming back.’ What kind of bull**it is that? I could go out and play if I felt like it, but I don’t feel like it. I’ve got a great band. I’ve got two great bands – I’ve got Promise of the Real and Crazy Horse. They’re both great bands and they’re different. But they both can play a lot of shit.’
It seems that Mr Young will be skipping a lot of shows this Summer.
And finally good news for Tool fans!
