Eyes and Ears

"Eyes" - Joel Bernstein - 1971

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!

Exclusive: Cameron On Music – PJ20, We Bought A Zoo & More

Comments Off

I’m very excited to share a recent interview that I conducted with Cameron on all things music entitled “Music Matters”. We chatted about a variety of musical topics including Neil Young, Linda Ronstadt, Todd Rundgren, Led Zeppelin, the best guitarists he’s seen live and much more. Then the questions turned to the musical aspects of both Pearl Jam Twenty and We Bought A Zoo. Another in-depth interview will occur this Fall and cover more specifics around the films, but today’s interview is all about the music…

Pearl Jam Twenty Book Cover!

Comments Off

 

Here’s the first look at the front cover for the Pearl Jam Twenty book. Nice and simple, huh? Don’t forget that the 256 page book is written by Jonathan Cohen with assistance from Mark Wilkerson. It will also include an introduction by Cameron, along with interviews with Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young and Dave Grohl.  The book is scheduled to be released on September 13, 2011 and will be published by Simon & Schuster.

Splinters of CSNY: Harvest, Manassas & Nash/Crosby

Comments Off

In June 1972, just prior to his 15th birthday, Cameron wrote this epic review of three new albums from the members of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. At this time, this was definitely the most in-depth review that he’d done for the San Diego Door. Neil Young’s Harvest gets the bulk of the attention and you can feel Cameron’s disappointment as you read his review. It’s very clear that Cameron prefers the “stripped down-acoustic” versions of these Harvest songs that Young had previously debuted on tour. Stephen Stills’ Manassas doesn’t fare too well either, but Cameron really enjoyed the Crosby contributions on the Nash/Crosby LP quite a bit.

Crowe on Larson

Comments Off

nicolettelarson

Here’s an interview with singer Nicolette Larson that Cameron did for the December 14, 1978 issue of Rolling Stone. I’m sure many of you know who Larson is, but she was an accomplished singer, who among other successes, had a Top 10 hit in 1978 with a cover of Neil Young’s “Lotta Love.” Sadly, Nicolette passed away in December of 1997 due to complications from a cerebral edema. She is survived by her husband, Russell Kunkel, and their 8-year-old daughter, Elsie May. If you would like to learn more, there’s an official website honoring her life and music.
