Half of his catalogue is owned by an investment fund with ties to BlackStone.
By the way, Neil Young seems to be collaborating with Amazon Music now. And while I cannot judge any musician who does things in order to eat, this is funny. Clearly, Joe Rogan is a horrible person, while Jeff Bezos is great!! How ironic.
So Blackrock owns Blackstone, and Blue Horseshoe loves anacott steel?

"Imagine if you will these famous figures working on behalf of all powerful institutions to suppress freedom, bodily autonomy and civil liberties, while believing themselves to be stewards of righteousness and good will. In such a future, you will have entered the… New Normal."
I absolutely love Neil Young's music, particularly the early songs. But the more I discover about the man behind these wonderful songs, the more passively cynical I become. I noticed that he was singing the praises of his owners, corporate behemoth Warner Bros recently. Who DOES that and still expects to receive an understanding ear from their fans? The interests of the public always transcend the much narrower interests of the artist. I hope I don't sound too negative to you Tessa when I say that! Your lovely, warm conscience makes you a much better artist than Mr Young ❤
Good digging! It's like that thing we used to have back before the year 2000, what was it called?
Oh right, journalism!
Good piece Tessa. And to think that Neil Young has an autistic son, likely due to vaccines.
I did a piece on the ties between Blackrock, Vanguard and the media July 3, 2021. Interesting how much more insidious things have become since then.
'i will follow the law' no matter how stupid.
these journos are as guilty as the leaders
it was also legal to do many terrible things in 1930s germany
Thank you for your outstanding article. As we suspected, there’s lots of dark money driving the posturing of people like Neil Young. In the end, they’re simply products.
Gina is speaking the truth - so she must be working for Putin!
Good one, Tessa. I am feeling such love towards all these brave Canadians whose natural state is 'agreeableness' as Peterson describes his own people. Now they are the bravest in the Whole Wide World. Never take an agreeable person for granted, hey! And interesting look at Neil Young too. Very revealing.
James Blunt has tweeted - If @spotify doesn’t immediately remove @joerogan, I will release new music onto the platform. #youwerebeautiful
I am torn. Do I celebrate the young man and recall my joyful singalongs in a car full of rock climbers or see the old soured individual and drop him as with all the others who have mortgaged their souls. And Joni too. I now must live without her beautiful works although she probably doesn't get it, merely solidarity, lost in Morgellons. I listen to the songs. I know I should just listen with no sense of the artist. Usually I can do this; I have no time for judging the art by the artist as the activists want in their extinguishing jihad. But...I can't. Perhaps I can in time, as I recall my youth, perhaps I have lost the flame too? I don't think I have but hey. The songs are tainted somehow, diminished. So Neil, you never really meant it? The silver spaceships. Joni, singing for Sharon. It was just a phase? Which is you? Which is me?
this isn't the first time ole Neil has been coopted by the dark side. Right around the time he was experimenting with synth-pop - an album called Trans, I'm not making this up - he endorsed Reagan. I never considered him anything more than a good guitarslinger with a handful of good songs. But it's gonna be sad throwing all those Joni Mitchell albums in the trash, where the Springsteen and Wynton Marsalis records went a couple of summers ago.
Great research! You are spoiling us.
Gina is clearly winner of the offering :: Thank you, Tessa- So lovely Truth ly spake the clear ly and directly INTO the camera heard freedom ring-
