Neil Young (1945-     )
    
Canadian-born rock music singer, songwriter, and guitarist noted for his folk rhythms and distinctive falsetto voice. He was a leader in developing the styles known as folk rock and country rock in the 1960s and 1970s. In the 1970s he adopted a punk rock and hard-rock style. He is also considered a forerunner of grunge rock in the 1990s, which combines folk melodies with hard-rock instrumentation.
     Young was born in Toronto. In 1964 he followed his idol Stephen Stills to Los Angeles, where they formed the Buffalo Springfield band. Young also worked with the band Crazy Horse and the group Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.
     Young's most popular album was "Harvest."
