Neil Young Information Continued
Although Neil Young has experimented widely with soul, swing, jazz, rockabilly, and electronica throughout a varied career, his most accessible and best known work generally falls into either of two distinct styles: an acoustic, country-tinged folk rock, such songs like "Heart of Gold" or "Old Man," or grinding, lumbering form of hard rock, heard on songs like "Cinnamon Girl" or "Southern Man."
Neil Young first came to prominence as a member of the folk-rock band Buffalo Springfield in the mid-1960s and then as a solo performer backed by the band Crazy Horse. He reached his commercial peak during the singer-songwriter boom of the early 1970s with the albums After the Gold Rush and Harvest as well as with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.
In 2000, the cable music channel VH1 ranked Neil Young 30th on a list of the Top 100 Artists of Rock and Roll. He was also 30th on VH1's list of Top 100 Hard Rock Artists.
