Neil Young

Neil Young’s big break came in the mid ‘60s, when the Canadian singer-songwriter co-founded Buffalo Springfield in Los Angeles with Stephen Stills, whom he’d team up with again later in his career as part of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. But it wasn’t until Young released his first solo album at the end of the decade that his vision truly started to take shape. Within the next 10 years, he released some of the era’s best-loved classics, like ‘Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere,’ ‘After the Gold Rush,’ ‘Harvest’ and ‘Rust Never Sleeps.’ He’s kept active throughout the ‘80s, ‘90s, ‘00s and ‘10s, releasing a steady stream of albums that showcases his restless creativity. Even at his most frustrating and bewildering – like the synth and rockabilly records he released in the ‘80s – Young remains one of rock’s all-time greats.
