The Squires' The Sultan ends a magnificent run of shows

Neil Young finished his nine-date UK leg of his ‘Continental Tour’ at London’s Hammersmith Apollo on Saturday night (March 15).

In an even more conversational mood than at previous shows on this leg of the tour, Young joked about ‘Homegrown”s meaning, saying after playing it that he used to think it was a drug song. Then he thought it was about food, and how people could eat healthily. As Uncut contributor Alastair McKay reports Young continued by saying “Then fuel – growing plants and using ‘em in cars. That’s pretty good.” Hesitating, “That’ll never work. They’re all over that… so all you get’s a stupid song and all this information”.
