Neil Young

Neil Percival Young OC OM (born November 12, 1945) is a Canadian–American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and activist, considered by some as one of the most influential and prolific songwriters of all time. After embarking on a music career in the 1960s, he moved to Los Angeles, where he formed Buffalo Springfield with Stephen Stills, Richie Furay and others. Young had released two solo albums and three as a member of Buffalo Springfield by the time he joined Crosby, Stills & Nash in 1969. From his early solo albums and those with his backing band Crazy Horse, Young has recorded a steady stream of studio and live albums, sometimes warring with his recording company along the way.
