Neil Young's Hawaii Beach House!Must SeeTop 10 Florida Condos For Sale
One of the most prolific songwriters since the 1960s, Neil Young is always exploring, always reinventing and always has something relevant to say in song. Now 69, he started out with a plastic ukulele given to him by his father as a small child, survived polio at age six and picked up his first real guitar at age nine. He wrote his first song, entitled No at age 13. From then until now it has been full steam ahead. Well known for his association with Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young bands, when questioned by Howard Stern in an interview about changing bands so often, Young responded that he works for the music - not a band; that he’ll follow where the music takes him. So far, he has been inducted twice into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: first in 1995 for his solo work and in 1997 as a member of Buffalo Springfield. His career has spanned over 45 years and produced 35 albums. As a passionate environmentalist, Neil has worked extensively to help small farmers and raise awareness about the dangers of GMO foods.
