Neil Young Will Answer Your Questions on Twitter Tomorrow
Got a question you've been burning to ask Neil Young? Like, perhaps, what made him want to write "Cortez the Killer," or what he was thinking when he made Trans? (Which really isn't as bad as it's cracked up to be?)

Well polish those inquiries down to 140-character length, Young fans, because tomorrow (Oct. 24) is your day. The great Young himself will take to his brand-new Twitter account (@neilyoung/ only 13 Tweets so far!) to answer your questions starting at noon PST.
All you have to do is Tweet a question with the hashtag #AskNeil, and wait for a response. Well, that's not all you have to do, because let's be serious: There are going to be hella people hurling questions at the man tomorrow, and putting a smart Neil Young inquiry into 140 characters, is including a hashtag, is gonna take some work.
But anyway: Young's appearance on the @TwitterMusic handle is part of a new Twitter series (#LegendsonTwitter!) where famous musicians answer questions in real time. Given that access to Young is infrequent and privileged (more privileged than us, anyway), we're excited to see how these exchanges turn out.
Also tomorrow, the new album from Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Psychedelic Pill, will be streaming in its entirety, a week before its Oct. 30 release date. Expect more of the distortion-soaked jams we heard earlier this year on Americana, only on original songs, not American classics. You can hear the new record at NeilYoung.com from tomorrow until next Tuesday.
Now, then: Time to figure out what to ask the man tomorrow!
