Noteworthy Now

Neil Young is among the artists that eagerly accepted the invitation of Desert Trip concert organizers to join the lineup for the consecutive weekends of concerts at the Coachella concert site that will also include sets from the Rolling Stones, The Who, Paul McCartney, Roger Waters and Bob Dylan. Young's former bandmate David Crosby is blasting the event as a scam and a rip-off.  In an interview with the Daily Mail, the former Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young member tore into the event and the artists as being motivated by nothing but greed.  Crosby claims, 'The sound outdoors at that place is shit' and adds, 'You could give me tickets and I wouldn't go.' Ticket and merchandise sales from the concerts are expected to generate close to $150 million in sales.  The Stones alone were reportedly offered $8.5 million for their set.
