On Thanksgiving 2023, Canadian-American singer-songwriter Neil Young released a roughly three-minute video of himself performing a Jimi Hendrix-ian version of the “The Star-Spangled Banner” on electric guitar. The video ends with a simple message written across the screen: “BE BRAVE” and “STAND FOR PEACE.”The video makes no direct reference to any particular ongoing war or armed conflict, including recent horrors in Gaza. However, days earlier, Young posted online a separate written statement, which included: “For our many Palestinian friends and our many Jewish friends, we do need to start over in the present and release our terrible connections to the past. As bad as they are, they need to be forgotten so we can be free to move on in life together, all humanity, focused on saving our planet for future generations of all people.” Trending Hall & Oates' Final Concert?
