Published Mar 28, 2011Right now, everything is coming up Neil Young. Not only did the Canuck legend win big at the Juno Awards, but the City of Toronto declared today (March 28) "Neil Young Day". To help you celebrate Neil Young Day at home, here's a clip of City and Colour (aka Dallas Green of Alexisonfire) and Daniel Romano (Attack in Black/Daniel, Fred & Julie) covering the classic "Old Man."
This aired during the Verge's Juno broadcast, with Green handling vocals and Romano playing guitar on this version, which sounds a lot sleeker than Young's brilliantly scrappy original. Romano throws some subtle fills into his strumming pattern, while he and Green hunch over microphones and hit some impressively soaring falsetto harmonies in the song's second half.
Thanks to Earbuds & Ticket Stubs for the heads-up.
