works about Neil Young

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young


"I have so many opinions about everything it just comes out during my music. It's a battle for me.
I try not to be preachy. That's a real danger."

"I live for playing live. All my records are live, since After The Gold Rush, with the exception
of Trans and the vocals on Landing On Water."

"I totally have no other talent and I would be totally out of work if I did anything else."

"My music isn't anything but me. It has jazz in it, and rock'n'roll, and it has an urgency to it."

"There's an edge to real rock 'n' roll. It's all that matters."

— Neil Young
