Neil Young: What Is Wrong With George Bush?
Canadian folk rock legend slams US war against Iraq
Neil Young: ‘Americans were deluded if they thought they were liberating Iraq’
By Emsie Ferreira - BERLIN
Canadian folk rock legend Neil Young said he has lost all hope that music can change the world, as he presented a documentary about his 2006 anti-war concert tour at the Berlin film festival on Friday.
"I know that the time when music could change the world is past. I really doubt that a single song can make a difference. It is a reality," Young told reporters.
"I don't think the tour had any impact on voters."
But the silver-haired frontman of the sixties supergroup Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young nonetheless dealt US President George W. Bush a stinging, back-handed insult and said his own "naive" urge to make people think remains intact.
"What is wrong with George Bush? That would take a really long time. Let's talk about what is right with him, it is a much shorter answer.
