Cameron shared his Greatest Rock Movies Ever with Premiere magazine back in March, 2004. With recent docs like The Swell Season and new films such as Inside Llewyn Davis coming out soon, it might be time to revisit, but let’s check it out.
Cameron digs deep with this 6,000 plus profile of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young’s 1974 tour kick off for Crawdaddy magazine. Highlights include a 4 1/2 hour show in Seattle, Joni Mitchell’s serenades in Vancouver, B.C. and some great quotes all the parties involved. We hope you enjoy the latest addition to the Journalism section.
Neil Young turns 67 today and is showing no signs of slowing down. His output is amazing and his music, as vibrant as ever. In the past few months, we’ve been treated to two wonderful albums with Crazyhorse (Americana and Psychedelic Pill) and a new Jonathan Demme documentary, Neil Young Journeys (recently released on DVD and Blu-ray).
Here’s the links to three Rolling Stone journalism pieces. Two were in-depth cover stories five years apart along with a short piece during the 1978 tour where Cameron was able to “join” the stage show. Happy Birthday Neil!
As part of a feature in the November, 1980 issue of Pro Fun magazine, Cameron was amongst a group of rock critics that shared 10 Records (or singles /artists) that in some way affected them or changed their lives. We thought it might be fun to peek back and share those with you today.

In addition to jónsi’s score, we thought you might like to see the entire soundtrack listing for We Bought A Zoo. If the movie hasn’t arrived in your country yet, you might want to avoid if want to be surprised.
You might remember the Eyes and Ears sections of the old cameroncrowe.com site (for film and music, respectively). There’s a story behind those names and Cameron discusses them in the liner notes for Jackson Browne’s 1977 masterpiece, Running on Empty. The 205th piece in the Journalism section focuses on photographer and longtime friend Joel Bernstein. In addition to his amazing photography, Joel is best known these days as Neil Young’s official archivist. Check it out!
