(Los Angeles)- Rock legend Neil Young has reportedly learned to play B-flat on the guitar, bringing his total of known chords to six.

"It's the first new chord he's learned since 1979," says Young's agent Bob Merlis. "I remember because that's also the last time he did his laundry. We can expect another 13 or 14 new albums with this newly found knowledge."

In the works according to Merlis are three immediate follow-ups to Young's "Living With War," tentatively entitled: "Still Living with War," "How Long Must We Live With War?" and "What's Up With All This War?"

Young, a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, produced a solo record in 1965--the 12-minute 25-second epic "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall"-- but did not come into prominence until 1967, with Stephen Stills and the group Buffalo Springfield. Two years later he was inexplicably asked to join Crosby, Stills, and Nash.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
