#Young6Music - help pick the Ultimate Neil Young Playlist
Neil Young & Crazy Horse’s new record, Americana, is streaming ahead of it’s release on Monday so we thought what better but to celebrate the multi-hit, multi-award winning, multi-talented musician that is Mr Young.
The Canadian has blessed our ears ever since 1968 when he released his self-titled debut album. He’s an iconic figure in music that was influenced in his early career by Bob Dylan and play while he was playing folk clubs with Joni Mitchell before going onto play Glastonbury, put on tribute concerts and write some of the greatest songs in modern music.
