Neil Young

Singer, Songwriter, Advocate

Neil Young's career stretches over more than four decades, and in that time he's created some of rock and folk's most memorable music. He has ventured outside of conventional music-making, too: He's directed a number of films, cofounded the Farm Aid benefit concerts, and invested time, money and energy into the Lincvolt, a 1959 Lincoln Continental equipped with a hybrid engine. He is also a committed proponent of hi-def audio, a cause that has yet to find many backers in the MP3 age.
