a can’t make it up.  Rocker Neil Young, the iconic rocker of 60’s-70’s bands Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young has issued a demand to Spotify.

The demand? Either Spotify dumps the seriously popular podcaster Joe Rogan – or else he will have his own catalogue removed. According to news accounts like this one in USA Today Young’s demand was phrased this way in an “open letter” to “his manager Frank Gironda and Tom Corson, co-chairman and chief operating officer of Warner Bros. Records.”

“I am doing this because Spotify is spreading fake information about vaccines – potentially causing death to those who believe the disinformation being spread by them. Please act on this immediately today and keep me informed of the time schedule.

“I want you to let Spotify know immediately TODAY that I want all my music off their platform,” Young continued. “They can have (Joe) Rogan or Young. Not both.”

As someone who came of age listening and loving Neil Young’s music, the hypocrisy about his sudden concern for “fake information about vaccines- potentially causing death to those who believe the disinformation being spread by them” is nothing short of hilarious hypocrisy.

  1. I’ve never been a fan of Joe but the “If I don’t get my way I’ll take my music and go home” is just another whiney entertainer wanting to allow only the thought that agrees with his.

    I find it funny that all of CSNY, who once railed at this type of government control in the 60’s, are all for not questioning that same government in their geriatric years.

  2. I’ve seen the needle and the damage done…

    …spike proteins fryed the brain of Neil Young.

    …another vaxx case like the setting Sun

  3. I recall in about 1984 Neil got in a snit about the rock and roll industry and swore off of it. Joined the Grand Old Opry, decided he was going to be a country singer. And it was just a few years back he was in another snit about the Alberta Oilsands and did a big concert in Calgary to express his distaste with the petroleum industry. Sadly it was a cold day in Calgary and Neil’s tour busses sat outside the venue with engines running all day and night.
    Watch for his new album “Get Off My Lawn” and the first single “I’ve Fallen And I Can’t Get Up”

  4. I guess this was a “Long Time Gone”:

    Speak out, you got to speak out against the madness
    You got to speak your mind
    If you dare
    But don’t no don’t now try to get yourself elected
    If you do you had better cut your hair……….

    I guess you can only speak out if you agree with Neil.

  5. I remember being taught critical thinking, don’t trust the man/establishment/government, research everything back in the day.
    Sadly it was the leftists doing the teaching and the man was conservatives (NOT playing into the lefts name calling and villifying of the right)
    Now we have the left in charge and trying to muzzle/stifle/gag anything not from their ministers of propaganda… sigh, Gobels, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Franco et all would be proud of their useful idiots
