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."

"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.
