Canadian folk rock legend Neil Young said he has lost all hope that music can change the world, as he presented a documentary about his 2006 anti-war concert tour at the Berlin film festival on Friday.
"I know that the time when music could change the world is past. I really doubt that a single song can make a difference. It is a reality," Young told reporters.
"I don't think the tour had any impact on voters."
But the silver-haired frontman of the sixties supergroup Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young nonetheless dealt US President George W. Bush a stinging, back-handed insult and said his own "naive" urge to make people think remains intact.

It would appear that the naivete of the hippie generation is on its’ last leg. Good riddance.

I wanna live with the Hillary Girl
I could be happy
the rest of my life
With the Hillary Girl
A screamer at Billy
running to the right
I see us together
Chasing the moon(bat) light
My Hillary Girl
Another 60’s child gets a revelation in his old age.......
Keep on Rockin’ in the Free World, Neil...ignoring the reasons why we’re free.
Yeah but Cinnamon Girl is still a great riff and song.
...and what did Lynyrd Skynyrd say about Neil Young?
Southern Man don’t need him around anyhow................
I'm still a little bit of a Neil fan because I saw him play it at Live Aid, as did about a billion others including in the Soviet Union.
I guess, Neil, it's the message and the timing and not the medium.
It was the drug infused haze that allowed the world to change......behind our backs.
The Music just kept us from listening to talk radio.
Yes Neil, singing Kumbaya doesn't work anynmore... the bad guys in the world are not falling for that one anymore.
It's hard to believe a mind that wrote Keep On Rockin' in the Free World could be that slow...
Until you listen to some of the other stuff he wrote.
Welcome to the Real World, Neil. Rock on.
That he ever had this hope proves what an idiot he is.
Shut up and sing a song shadenfreud
I see the needle and the damage done.
A little part of it in everyone
Every junkie’s like a setting sun.
“Music Cannot Change the World, Says Neil Young”
Rap makes it worse.
It hasnt been 1968 for a long time...
please don’t bring back those memories, ever!
“What is wrong with George Bush? That would take a really long time. Let’s talk about what is right with him, it is a much shorter answer.
That’s because he left his leftist talking points in the draw at his mother’s house and the one brain cell he is working on can only generate four letter words.
