Neil Young has long been a fan of Bob Dylan. More than a fan. Neil’s whole trip is inspired by Bob Dylan.
Don’t misunderstand. Young has taken that inspiration and created his own art that is unique.
Young has performed a number of Dylan songs over the years, most recently “Blowin’ in the Wind” at Farm Aid last year and during his recent acoustic shows.
Below are a number of totally rockin’ versions of “All Along the Watchtower.”
