By Bad Seed
Neil Young ~~Hey Hey, My My (Out of the Blue) ~ 1989 ~ Summer , New York, Jones Beach. Tribute to Some great rock n rollers who met an untimely death. Also a bit of a tribute to the everlasting nature of rock n roll.
"Often imitated, but never duplicated, Neil Young's unique musical songwriting and playing style has influenced a generation of artists from Booker T. and the MG's to Pearl Jam to Wilco. From alt-country to grunge, punk to alternative, rockabilly to heavy metal, blues to synth, a musical genre label will never apply to Neil and his music. An observer once wrote that "Young has always been a lone wolf - a musical chameleon, who changes his musical style and his band as often as most people change their shirt." Crazy Horse bandmate "Poncho" Sampedro referred to Young's musical polygamy as "a fact of life."

Neil Young Albums
Over the course of Neil's long career stretching back to the early 1960's and his work in Canada with The Squires, through the 70's, 80's, 90's, and into the 21st century, he has produced major albums which both directly and indirectly shaped the music of generations. With over 40 albums with bands including The Buffalo Springfield, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and Crazy Horse, Young has never been easily categorized with influences ranging from folk, rock, punk, grunge, country, blues, and synth."
