Neil Young To Release Elvis Tribute

Neil Young To Release Elvis Tribute: On the FECC Forum we found a posting which mentioned that Neil Young will release an Elvis tribute on his next CD. This is the text from someone who saw the concert they filmed last week in Nashville: Neil: ”I wrote a song about Elvis. I called Graceland and I said I’d written a song about Elvis. I’m a recording artist [laughter]. I’d like to use a picture of Elvis on the record but my art director called and you never got back to him so here I am calling you myself. It’s a nice song. It’s good. Can we have the picture? It’s one of Elvis on a flat bed truck surrounded by girls with ponytails looking at him. Can we use it?’ ‘We’ll get back to you.’ ”I waited three weeks. I called back. And I called back again. Sure enough I got an answer. No. We don’t allow photos of Elvis to be used with other artists’ albums. I guess I can understand that. They didn’t know Elvis. I wish I could have spoken to him directly. In the end we used a picture of a pink motel with a 57 pink Cadillac parked outside. So if you see that photo you’ll know the story.”
