    Neil Young

    I love Neil. There is nothing like seeing him rock on stage. One year he did about 14 shows with Crazy Horse at a bar in town here called the Old Priceton Landing. He recently put on the 21st annual Bridge School Benefit. Great show. I can't think of any one else who rocks...

    Thanks, Dad!

    I've loved Neil since I was very little, because of my dad. He would listen to him in the car when he'd come to pick me up from my mom's house. We had a two hour drive, and we'd listen to Neil, Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young; and many more...

    Neil Young

    I have seen Neil Young in Concert 3 times, the Last being in Los Angeles last November, he rocked like a 20 year old that night, when he did Cinnimon Girl my hair stood up on my neck, when they say the greatest rocker in our time, he needs to be on the top 5 list.

    That is all. Man, I could write forever about how neil was the first guy that made being a musician seem possible, how he's the only one that can both rip your face off and to a touching ballad with no ego, or holding back, How.....well........I ******* LOVE his clothes. ...

    I love Neil Young. From the first time I heard "Cinnamon Girl" and "Sugar Mountain" I have appreciated his guitar work, his lyrics, and of course that plaintive voice. At the moment my two favorite Neil songs are "Winterlong" and "Like a Hurricane" but that changes a lot. And...

    I grew up listening to his music,

    and as I became a musician and started delving into his music more, I realized how truly amazing it is. I'm thinking I need a night soon where I just get completely wasted and listen to Tonight's The Night in its entirety!

    Neil Young. Too many or too few words could not describe him. I was brought up on his music, I live fairly close to his childhood town before he moved to Winnipeg. I have learned to cover a large range of his songs. I share a kinship with the man not only as a young, folk...

    I wasn't brought up with much of a music background, so I've been learning late.  Neil Young inspired me at 30 to begin to learn guitar because I could hear the urgency in his voice.  I would LOVE to meet him because I think he is a sincere, determined, honest, and...
