Neil Young defies Israel boycott, announces Tel Aviv concert

His friends in the BDS movement won't be pleased, but rock icon Neil Young hasn't ever been about pleasing anyone. He just does what he does; critics, fans, media be damned.

That's what I like about the guy.

Neil is scheduled to play in Tel Aviv July 17. Neil is indeed one of the most "important and influential figures in the history of rock music." I admit I didn't realize the extent of that influence until a few years ago, when the story came out about Bob Dylan prowling Winnipeg looking for Neil's childhood home.

When no less a rock icon than Bob Dylan is paying homage, you know you're a big deal.
