Neil Young

Neil Young, one of my all time favorite musicians, celebrates his 66th birthday today!

Best known for his work with Crosby, Stills and Nash, Neil has enjoyed musical success since the 1960’s.

Young was a founding member of Buffalo Springfield, as well as his own band, Crazy Horse.

Neil Young

With his signature voice, unique style of guitar playing, and songs written from the heart, Neil Young is an icon in the music world.

Hit songs like Sugar Mountain, Heart of Gold, and Helpless are as great to listen to today as they were when they were released years ago.

But Neil Young isn’t just living off the success his oldies. His latest albums prove time and again that Neil Young is still at the top of his game.

Mr. Young has also been an advocate for many societal issues. He is one of the originators of Farm Aid and is a co-founder, along with his wife Peggy, of The Bridge School, an organization that helps to educate children with severe speech and physical impairments.

I’ve had the opportunity to see Neil Young in concert numerous times and I met him once backstage in 2000 at a CSNY concert in NYC. He is as genuine as the songs he sings.

Happy Birthday Neil Young!

Here's two songs that have some extra special meaning for me these days.

I hope you enjoy them...

Don't Let It Bring You Down

 

Lotta Love

Happy Birthday indeed! Neil Young is a classic and can command a stage with just himself and a guitar. You however forgot to highlight his megahit Kinda Fonda Wanda...I used to call the radio stations way back when to dedicate this to, well, to...me! ;)

Craig, Neil Young has always been a huge favorite of mine...I'm thinking all the way back to Buffalo Springfield...has that much time really passed?

Craig- When my husband decided to start collecting vinyl again (ie. buy back all of the albums he'd donated to Goodwill ), his LP's were some we loved to seek out!  Think we may bring out some and listen tonight to wish him a Happy Birthday.

I was looking for the punchline that never came.  Neil is one of the greats that will never be matched.  You can't create this type of talent.  You have to be born with it.

Wow- 66. Don't know if you've heard this but his song  "Old Man"- one of my faves- was written about a man who was working on the ranch be bought in California in the sixties when he finally could afford one.

When I saw the title I flashed back to college and remembered way too many nights, coming back from the library and would walk into the dorm to a smoke filled hall with CSNY music blaring, along with a few of the others.

Richard - Yeah. my thoughts exactly!

Michael - Ditto to what I said to Richard!

Larry & Sheila - Nice! And you win the prize for the first comment using a Neil reference in it!

Dorie - Love the Harvest Moon LP! A fine musical choice to begin making memories in your new home!

James - I try to play them. But, alas, I was born with not much in the way of musical talents.

Kristine - I couldn't let the day go by without honoring one of my all time favorites.

Richard - And I'll bet listening to them helped you guys get through that difficult time.

Roger - It's all part of the full service I provide my friend!

Larry - Ha! Ha! Ha! I'm just trying to worry about keeping the hair I have without adding anything new to the mix!

Anita - Relaxing time comes today. I'll post my daily blog and then my slate is clean for some football!

Peg - Neil and Gretzky two of Canada's best... Oh, and you too, of course Peg!

Deb - Why thank you Debb! I'm a big fan of most anything Neil does as well. It's "Weld" when I need to release some energy and these days, it's "Live at Massey Hall" when I need to kick back.

Kristin - You just needed to be a little more seasoned Kristin!

Charles - Musical God! Well said my friend. Well said!

John - They do NOT make 'em like Neil Young anymore. That is a fact.

Wanda - Calling to request "your" song! Now that's too funny!

Nick - Yes, my friend, you're old!!!

Kathy - Turn it up and enjoy some Neil tonight, Kathy!

Tatyana - That he is Tatyana. That he is.

Jackie - Yup. 66. And, I think he's got a lot more great years in him. At least I hope he does. And I hope I'm around to enjoy them too.

Doug - No punchline here my friend. Just a tribute to one of may all time faves.

Scott - If I'm not mistaken he mentions it on his Massey Hall CD.

Ed - The library Ed?!!!

Endre - 4 Way Street! Excellent LP! I think that was the album that intorduced me on Neil Young.

Kathleen - Long May You Run. Cinnamon Girl. The list of great songs just goes on and on for Neil Young.

I really enjoyed the music video of Don't Let it Bring you Down. I had forgotten that as a young teen, I wore a favorite t-shirt that had the face of a young Neil with long hair.
