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.
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...
