Any Neil Young Fans on the Beatles Bible?
My favourite non-Beatle related act (tied with Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers)
So what do you guys think of him

I really enjoy his music, both solo and with CSNY. The only original album (yes the vinyl) I have though is Harvest. I do have a few compilations in my CD rack.

Did CSNY do anything good after that first album?
I recommend Harvest, After the Gold Rush and Rust Never Sleeps (featuring the line It's better to burn out than to fade away which Lennon didn't like)

I loves me a whole lotta Neil, going back as far as Buffalo Springfield, and of the albums of his I own, at least a half-dozen are stone cold classics...but I think he gets a little too much praise from rock critics who love to make a virtue of his ramshackle sloppiness. Like he can get away with writing some distinctly half-assed two-chord song with a meandering four-five minute guitar solo (backed up by the ever-workmanlike Crazy Horse) and nobody's gonna call him on it, just because, y'know, he's Neil Young, and nobody would ever dare suggest that he try editing himself or polishing the results a bit. You know? How can they tell the difference between integrity and plain laziness?

I liked the version of "Long May You Run" he sang in Vancouver to close the Olympics.

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

One could argue the same for The Band (4 of the 5 were Canadian), but it is striclty a personal preference. I do know they all respected each other a great deal.
