Welcome to my Music Diary – today for the 12th November!
Happy birthday to Mr. Neil Percival Young, who was born on the 12th November 1945 in Toronto, Ontario! The Canadian singer-songwriter started his music career at the age of 15. In 1966 he moved to California where he founded with Stephen Stills and Richie Furay the Folk-Country-Rock band Buffalo Springfield. After the group called it a day, Neil startet his solo career in 1968 and one year later he joined the famous trio Crosby, Stills & Nash as a fourth member. Neil Young’s work is outstanding and all over the decades he still likes it to experiment with all types of musical genres. He is also called the „Godfather of Grunge“ and so it’s no surprise that Neil Young also toured and recorded with Pearl Jam.
Neil Young recorded over 35 studio albums in his outstanding career. Many of them became real milestones in Rock history like „Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere“ (1969 – feat. the classics „Cinnamon Girl„, „Down by the River“ and „Cowgirl in the Sand„), „After the Gold Rush“ (1970 – feat. „“Southern Man„), „Harvest“ (1972 – feat. „Heart of Gold“ and „The Needle and the Damage Done„), „Rust Never Sleeps“ (1979), „Freedom“ (1989), „Ragged Glory“ (1990), „Harvest Moon“ (1992), „Sleeps with Angels“ (1994) or the cooperation with Pearl Jam on „Mirror Ball“ (1995).
