Neil Young: interview in "The National"

The National has a lengthy interview with Neil Young:

He keeps his show fresh by shaking up his set lists, unlike many other classic rockers who prefer to be live jukebox versions of their catalogues.

“Eventually you start to get sick of yourself doing the same thing over and over again like a machine,” Young says.

“The road is dangerous that way. I’ve got a lot of songs, so I kept bringing them in and trying them out. On my last tour I did a lot of different songs and it keeps changing. It’s not always going to be like that.”

He has never tired of any of his songs, despite having played some of them for more than 40 years. “I don’t have any songs that I hate. You don’t hate your children; you don’t hate your friends.”
