Happy 66th Birthday Neil!!!

Neil Young's 1st Grammy Win (for his music)
Rock Song: "Angry World"

Feb 13, 2011


Neil Young is 66 years young today. So Happy Birthday Neil!!!

2011 has been another amazing year for Neil.

Neil Young
Allan Waters Humanitarian Award, Artist of the Year and Adult Alternative Album of the Year Award
2011 Juno awards at the Air Canada Centre
March 27, 2011


So. Looking for somewhere to go and celebrate Neil's birthday? Check Neil birthday events around the world on our Facebook | Thrasher's Wheat page.

Also, a nice career retrospective from Broward/Palm Beach Music - County Grind By Lee Zimmerman:
Simply put, Neil Young is an artist of remarkable dexterity and durability. Aside from the fact that he boasts a song catalog rivaling that of Dylan, McCartney and, in fact, every other popular artist of the past half century, he's one of the few musicians whose every move is subject to speculation.

Even his most rabid fans find little consistency in his outings. One moment he's the yearning rambler embracing patchwork jeans and homespun sentiment, the next, he's a cranky grunge rocker, stomping across the stage clad in flannel shirt and backwards baseball cap. A genuine musical chameleon, he seems to switch his MO at will, or more precisely, with each new release, leaving listeners speculating as to his next digression.

...

  • Neil, the forlorn folkie:
  • Neil, the relentless rocker:
  • Neil, the nihilist:
  • Neil, the country crooner:
  • Neil, the Blues buster:
  • Neil, the rockabilly rebel:
  • Neil, the eclectic eccentric:
  • Neil, that doesn't fit into any one niche:

Keep on rocking in the free world of your imagination, Mr. Young, and we, your admirers, will likely keep rolling with you all the way.


So many beers to choose from to celebrate! Thanks Under The Rusted Moon - All About Neil Young: Neil Young wird 66 - Wir stoßen an!!

Happy 66th birthday, Neil!

Here in Germany everyone knows a song that says:
Mit 66 Jahren, da fängt das Leben an ...
with 66 years life just begins ...

Love, Liza
