Neil Young 1975 Caricature, age 30 at his Broken Arrow Ranch, a property of thousands of acres near La Honda, California, with his Martin D-45 in 1975.
The Martin is his primary steel-string acoustic guitar. It was one of four instruments bought by Stephen Stills for himself and his bandmates in CSNY to celebrate their first full concert at the Greek Theater in 1969.
Neil Young is a Canadian singer-songwriter, musician, producer, director and screenwriter. After embarking on a music career in the 1960s, he moved to Los Angeles, where he formed Buffalo Springfield with Stephen Stills, Richie Furay and others. Young had released two solo albums by the time he joined Crosby, Stills & Nash in 1969, in addition to three as a member of Buffalo Springfield. From his early solo albums and those with his backing band Crazy Horse, Young has recorded a steady stream of studio and live albums.
After the disbanding of Buffalo Springfield, for his 2nd solo album, Young recruited three musicians from a band called The Rockets: Danny Whitten on guitar, Billy Talbot on bass guitar, and Ralph Molina on drums. These three took the name Crazy Horse, and Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere (May 1969), is credited to “Neil Young with Crazy Horse.” Recorded in just two weeks, the album includes “Cinnamon Girl,” “Cowgirl in the Sand,” and “Down by the River.” Young reportedly wrote all three songs in bed on the same day while nursing a high fever of 103 °F.
Young joined Crosby, Still and Nash in 1969. The quartet debuted in Chicago on August 16, 1969, and later performed at the famous Woodstock Festival.
Young’s tenure with CSN&Y coincided with the band’s most creative and successful period, and greatly contributed to his subsequent success as a solo artist.
Young wrote “Ohio” following the Kent State massacre on May 4, 1970. The song was recorded within two days by CSN&Y and immediately released as a single, even though CSN&Y’s “Teach Your Children” was still climbing the singles charts.
Later in the year, Young released his third solo album, “After the Gold Rush” (August 31, 1970) and his mainstream album “Harvest” (February 14, 1972) hit the radio with numerous hits.
Young has had success with plenty of hits: “Mr. Soul”, “Cinnamon Girl”, “Cowgirl In The Sand”, “Down By The River”, “Ohio”, “Tell Me Why”, “Don’t Let It Bring You Down”, “Southern Man”, “Alabama”, “The Needle And The Damage Done”, “Old Man”, “Heart Of Gold”, “Tonight’s The Night”, “Cortez The Killer”, “Albuquerque”, “Like A Hurricane” and “Powderfinger”, to name but a few.
Neil Young has continued to tour with CSNY over the years. He co-founded the benefit concert Farm Aid in 1986. He was part-owner of Lionell, LLC, the company that makes toy trains and model railroad accessories. He has been named as co-inventor on seven US patents related to model trains.
Young has received several Grammy and Juno awards. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted him twice: as a solo artist in 1995 and in 1997 as a member of Buffalo Springfield. In 2000, Rolling Stone named Young the 34th greatest rock ‘n roll artist.
He has lived in California since the 1960s but retains Canadian citizenship.
