Neil Young was born in Toronto, Canada on November 12 1945. After embarking on his musical career in the 60's he upped roots and headed to LA where he formed the unforgettable Buffalo Springfield with Stephen Stills and Richie Furay, an intriguing mix of folk, country, psychedelia and rock but strained relations between the band members soon led to a sadly short lived existence as Buffalo Springfield and the band went their separate ways in 1968.
In 1969 Young joined Crosby, Stills and Nash. The quartet debuted in Chicago in August 1969 and later famously went on to perform at Woodstock Festival where Young skipped most of the acoustic set and refused to be filmed during the electric set, threatening to hit the cameraman with his guitar if he came near him! Now that's rock n roll!
In 1970 Young released his 3rd solo album, After The Goldrush, which featured artists such as Nils Lofgren, Stephen Stills and CSNY bassist Greg Reeves. After The Goldrush contain some of Youngs best known work and included 'Tell Me Why' and 'Don't Let It Bring You Down'.
After what was an experimental decade in the 80's, Young made a swift return to form with 'Freedom' in 1989, closely followed by his second biggest hit 'Rockin' In The Free World', which reached no.2 in the US charts.
