Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Don't be misled by the director's name; "Bernard Shakey" is really rock star Neil Young, who is also the center attraction of this music documentary. There's no plot, of course, just 103 minutes' worth of concert footage, filmed during Young's 1979 tour with his back-up band Crazy Horse. Musical highlights include "My, My, Hey Hey" (Out of the Blue)", "Thrasher" and "Powderfinger". If you missed this film, we refer you to the critically and financially successful record album of the same name. After both the film and record version of Rust Never Sleeps were sent into distribution, there was still enough material left over for another album, Live Rust.
