Sub standards 2

Neil Young’s only Australian interview during his recent visit was broadcast on 21 January, and the ABC has now published the transcript online. Is “published” the right word? Posted, perhaps. Publishing usually involves editing, proof-reading, old-fashioned quality-control stuff like that. This is the start, and the rest is just the same:
for joining us. Thanks. four decades Young quung has moved to be one of rock music's most enduring performers. Now 62, Neil Young is show nothing signs of slowing down. Having survived the highs and loefs the music industry, and a life threatening brain aneurysm in 2005. He's in Australia as the headline act of the Big Day Out, playing to rapturous audiences of fans young enough to be his grandchildren. And ever the social campaigner, watching from afar, as the new administration takes over in Washington. Tracee Hutchison spoke to Neil Young in his only Australian television interview. It's 30 years since Neil Young wrote one of his most enduring songs. (Sings) # Rock oh roll never Now at 62, Neil Young is dies # the epitome of that famous lyric, performing to a third generation of fans as the headline act of this year's national Big Day Out festival. I love to play everywhere I play and it's nice to see a lot of people. But we usually see people of all I think that most of the ages.that think that the Big old people in Australia are the Day Out is for young people. It's like the people who are young in their heads don't care. (Sings) # Come a little bit close er # Young's signature strip back country rock is enjoy ing a resurgence and the artist is minding his own backcatalogue with a series of release s dating back to the 1960s.
The whole hilarious mess is here.
