Neil Young joined DMB onstage at The Palace at Auburn Hills on October 3rd. Neil came out for Watchtower, Cortez the Killer and Rockin’ in the Free World.
Rockin’ in the Free World was written by Neil Young in 1989. Interestingly, many cite the lyrics of the song as an attack on George Bush senior’s foreign policy. Neil’s wife Peggy Young also joined the band for the last of the three songs and it was Young’s 7th appearance with DMB/D&T since 1997.
It was the third DMB performance on the Vote for Change tour. Dave has been careful not to ask his fans to vote specifically for Kerry, but he has asked people to get out and vote. For some reason people have reportedly boo'd Dave when he makes these nonpartisan statements.
Ryanfitz over at Antsmarching.org posted a video he took during soundcheck at the 8-28-04 DMB show. You can download the extracted audio in our forums. Though sound quality is incredibly poor, it does sound like it could be new DMB tune. Disclaimer: It could be simply an advanced jam, too.
