Neil Young

Born: 11/12/1945
Birthplace: Toronto, Ontario, Canada

From his work with Buffalo Springfield (1966–68) and Crosby, Stills, and Nash in the 1960s and 1970s, to a prolific and creative solo career spanning three decades, to a successful collaboration with Pearl Jam in 1995, Neil Young's career has been one of the least predictable and most significant in rock music. His albums include Déjà Vu (1970), with Crosby, Stills, and Nash, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere (1969), with Crazy Horse, Harvest (1972), the best-selling album of 1972, Comes a Time (1978), Freedom (1989), and Mirror Ball (1995). He is the subject of the Jim Jarmusch-directed documentary The Year of the Horse (1997).
