From Gijsbert Hanekroot on Facebook – Neil Young is celebrating his 77th birthday today and I hope he does so in all good health. It’s needless to say that the pictures I shot with him during the seventies are an important part of my archive. A lot of them made during private moments and even one of my live shots made it as an album cover. To celebrate his birthday I post this ‘paparazzi picture’, made on the 24th March 1976, when Neil played Ahoy Rotterdam with Crazy Horse and Paul and Linda McCartney came to visit him backstage. The McCartney’s played the same venue with their band Wings the next day. McCartney and Young didn’t play together that night, but years later, in 2009, Paul made an amazing surprise appearance at a Young show in Hyde Park. Do yourself a favor and check ‘Neil Young & Paul McCartney A Day In The Life’ on YouTube, it’s great. Keep on rambling you Young man, it’s great to be 77!
