- Quotes from a 06/30/00 NEIL YOUNG interview on Canadian Music Television channel Much More Music discussing Silver & Gold:
"On, uh, the H.O.R.D.E. tour was the Crazy Horse tour and it was pretty well all electric guitars and that kind of music. So by the end of the tour, which was many dates, you know, I was starting to think about other things, and I started writing songs in the bus and -- but my voice was real low from singing with Crazy Horse, you know, cuz I sing a lot louder and it wears, it opens up the bottom of my voice and I lost the top, so the songs that I wrote were in this lower register. So as soon as I got home from the H.O.R.D.E. tour I had to record those songs."
Jana: Are you as creative now as you ever have been?
Neil: It's a different kind of creation. I feel the presence of it but the physical manifestation of things, I feel more like there was a year in 1974 or 1975 where I made three albums in one year, but I feel like I'm maybe not putting as much quantity out but that the quality is raising and recently but I don't think that's gonna be a trend. I mean, I think what's probably gonna happen is I'm gonna go back to bein' the other way and just bangin' it for a while because working on something so precisely for so long and being anything for too long is no good."
