"Old Man" circa 1971:
Neil Young began performing as a solo artist in Canada in 1960, before moving to California in 1966, where he co-founded the band Buffalo Springfield along with Stephen Stills and Richie Furay, and later joined Crosby, Stills & Nash as a fourth member in 1969. He forged a successful and acclaimed solo career, releasing his first album in 1968; his career has since spanned over 40 years and 34 studio albums, with a continual and uncompromising exploration of musical styles.
"Helpless" live with CSNY at the 1974 World Series of Rock:
Young's work is characterized by his distinctive guitar work, deeply personal lyrics and signature alto or high tenor singing voice. While he has experimented with differing music styles, including swing and electronic music throughout a varied career, his best known work usually falls into two primary styles: acoustic (folk and country rock) and electric (amplified hard rock, very often in collaboration with the band Crazy Horse). Young has also adopted elements from newer styles such as alternative rock and grunge. His influence on the latter caused some to dub him the "Godfather of Grunge".
"Like A Hurricane" live at Cow Palace in San Francisco on the 1978 Rust Never Sleeps tour:
Known for his political and social activism, Neil Young is a co-founder and board member of Farm Aid, along with Willie Nelson, and John Mellencamp. Put together in six weeks, the show was held on September 22, 1985 in Champaign, Illinois and raised over $9 million for America's family farmers.
