Imagine how great The Beatles, Jim Morrison, Bob Dylan and Kurt Cobain could have been with K-Pop idol training.

BTO was my first rock LP at the age of 5.
That is some serious rock cred right there folks. I was into the Sesame Street theme at that age.
I love Frampton's melodic playing.
Frampton and Steve Marriott made a great combo:

BTO is widely recognized as a leading exponent of the rock genre CHOOGLE.
Choogle is a debauched form of white-boy boogie, after white-boy boogie drank too much Old Crow and fell asleep on his deck listening to Grand Funk Railroad.
For a deep dive into Choogling:

Legendary 1957 Frank Sinatra quote on rock 'n' roll:
“....the most brutal, ugly, degenerate, vicious form of expression it has been my displeasure to hear...
It fosters almost totally negative and destructive reactions in young people. It smells phony and false. It is sung, played and written for the most part by cretinous goons and by means of its almost imbecilic reiterations and sly, lewd—in plain fact, dirty—lyrics, and as I said before, it manages to be the martial music of every sideburned delinquent on the face of the earth … this rancid-smelling aphorodisiac I deplore.

Russia is increasingly dependent on units known to have poor discipline and an active delight in committing war crimes, from the Wagner Group’s mercenaries and neo-Nazi groups such as Rusich. It may simply be that Putin cannot be picky as it needs all the fighting men it can get. But it is more likely that it also sees some advantage in trying to terrorise the Ukrainians, hoping that this will undermine their will to resist.

Russia continues to rely on The Wagner Group to do its dirty work.

The perpetrator, Payton Gendron, was wearing a Nazi "Black Sun" symbol on his chest.
It's a symbol also used by Russia's Wagner Group in Ukraine. The Neo-Nazi death squad employed by Putin to invade Ukraine.

Russia has been supporting neo-Nazis and white supremacists for years, including mercenaries and separatists who have waged war on Ukraine since 2014.
Russia's neo-Nazi Wagner Group:
The Wagner Group is named after the 19th century German composer Richard Wagner, whose music Adolf Hitler adored. The group’s leader, Dmitry Utkin, reportedly wears Nazi tattoos, including a swastika, a Nazi eagle and SS lightning bolts. Wagner mercenaries are reported to have left behind neo-Nazi propaganda in the war zones where they’ve fought, including graffiti with hate symbols.

The war crimes of Russia's Neo-Nazi Wagner group and Sparta Battalion indicate that the threat of Russian chemical weapons is real.
The Wagner Group, a private military company backed by Kremlin, has built a reputation for its brutality. In 2019, a disturbing video surfaced showing four Russian-speaking men in military fatigues surrounding a man lying on the ground. They proceeded to break his legs with a sledgehammer, crushed his chest, and hacked off his hands, his head, before setting the corpse on fire. The victim was identified as Hamadi Bouta, a deserter from the Syrian army. He was tortured to death by the Wagner group, whose mercenaries are now said to be tasked with killing President Zelenskyy.

Russia has a history of these atrocities - Katyn massacre to name but one.
*And now they’ve sent other renowned war criminals into Ukraine - Wagner terrorist group (whose leader is a nazi)*
Not only the Wagner Group, but also Russia's Neo-Nazi Sparta Battalion:

Thanks for that. Of course I have no interest in what some Czech tabloid says.
You're very welcome. If you don't like Czech media, here are is a different source on the Neo-Nazis fighting for Russia:
Clearly, Russian backed Neo-Nazi death squads currently operating in Ukraine. Happy to provide other sources if you want.
I looked at the Wikipedia page. No mention at all of any neo-Nazi execution squad.
I don't blame you. The state and corporate media have the general population so conditioned they simply don't expect anyone to question or actually look a the Wikipedia page that person themself shared.
Incorrect. Directly from the Wiki page:
"The company's name comes from Utkin's....passion for the Third Reich ........Utkin has several Nazi tattoos...... the leadership of the Wagner Group are followers of the Slavic Native Faith, a modern Pagan new religious movement......
Utkin was photographed with Russian President Vladimir Putin at a Kremlin reception given in honour of those who had been awarded the Order of Courage and the title Hero of the Russian Federation
..during the Russian invasion of Ukraine, , the Wagner Group flew in more than 400 contractors....on a mission to assassinate Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and his government, and thus to prepare the ground for Russia to take control...."

Defending censorship, a powerful state and drug company profits.
Refusing to collaborate with greedy corporation profiting from the promotion of ignorance and the exploitation of young musicians is not defending censorship etc.
Neil Young is courageously following the anti-authoritarian path of Woody Guthrie, The Fugs, The MC5 and punk rockers like Crass and X-Ray Spex.

Good to see he’s still fighting the forces of ignorance.
One of the few high profile music stars ready to stick it to the money grubbing establishment.
Definitely boosting his rock and roll credentials.

Japan already has the highest number of mentally ill people per capita in the whole world, double the next highest country.
The prevalence of Common Mental Diseases (CMD) in Japan is relatively low. Japan stacks up favorably against the United States, which ranks fourth globally in wealth inequality and has recorded a prevalence of CMD that is approximately three times that of Japan.
