What can be said about Neil Young that hasn’t been said countless times before? The man has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame not once, but twice (as a solo act and a member of Buffalo Springfield); he’s been awarded a couple Grammys and several Junos (Canada’s Grammys); he’s been named in a notable spot on more than one of Rolling Stone’s “Greatest of All Time” lists; and if you’ve never heard his name or his music, you’re either confused, mistaken or you might live under a rock and have never listened to the radio.
In short, Young, who is in fact Canadian, is one of the most iconic and lasting figures in American Folk and Rock music from the past half-century. Read more in this week's Sound Advice.
