Neil Young Shreds “The Star-Spangled Banner” on Electric Guitar in New Video


Neil Young has released a new video called “Stand for Peace,” featuring a performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner” on electric guitar.

The video, which was directed by Young’s wife Daryl Hannah, features footage of Young performing next to an American flag and concludes with the written message “Be Brave” and “Stand For Peace.”

Earlier this week, Young announced his departure from Twitter. In an accompanying statement addressing the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas in Palestine, he wrote: “For our many Palestinian friends and our many Jewish friends, we do need to start over in the present and release our terrible connections to the past. As bad as they are, they need to be forgotten so we can be free to move on in life together, all humanity, focused on saving our planet for future generations of all people.”
