Let's hop in the JamBase time machine and set the dials for 2002 to view a stirring
performance by Neil Young with Poncho and The MGs. Ol' Neil was headlining the Rock
am Ring Festival in Nürburgring, Germany with a band that mixed Crazy Horse guitarist
Frank "Poncho" Sampedro with Booker T. and The MGs and his whole set was broadcast on
famed German live music show Rockpalast.
The legendary rocker was in fine form on this night as he mixed his greatest songs such as
"The Loner," "Cinnamon Girl," "Cortez The Killer" and "Down By The River" with what was
then more recent material such as "Sleeps With Angels" and "Let's Roll." The quality of
the footage is stunning, but you'll stay for the performance.
