Musical palate cleanser, obvious song is obvious edition

Still remember the first time I heard Neil Young’s “Like A Hurricane” — sitting on a stone wall at Chastain Park, drinking a beer and this came on the radio:

Well, I was blown away.  One of the great guitar solos from Young’s body of work, and it never seemed like it was gonna end… not that I wanted it to.

    Excellent tune. Isbell & the 400 Unit does a great job covering “Like a Hurricane” on their album – Live from Alabama.

      Saw him perform that in downtown Athens during Athfest in 2010 as a huge thunderstorm was on its way in. So awesome.

    I’d post Dylan’s Hurricane but your followers would have a stroke.

    When I read the header..I thought..surely to Goodness Bluto isn’t going with “Who’ll Stop the Rain”.
    The Guitar solo in NY”s Hurricane is perfect. Enjoyed it.

    Neil is one of the best songwriters of my generation. He’s a master on the acoustic guitar.
