Neil Young on Jon Stewart

Neil Young stopped by the Daily Show last night to talk about his new Memoir called Waging Heavy Peace. Its a very interesting interview and if you are a fan of Neil's its defiantly worth the watch.

My favorite part was when he talked about what happens to a record when it is taken and made into a mp3. "You lose the soul. You lose the feeling, you lose what makes you feel good, what makes music live. If you were Picasso, and you made a Picasso, and then it came out and everybody saw it and it was a Xerox of Picasso? That's what it feels like."

Now I have always found it interesting the approach that older artists that have been in the business for as long as Neil has to the digital music age. To see the business of what they do change so much. It was interesting to finally hear Neil's take.
