Iconoclast, innovator and influence on numerous generations of musicians, Neil Young's career that has spanned 35 years and well over 40 albums.
During that time the music-buying public has seen many different faces of the man : the pioneering country-rocker of Buffalo Springfield; the plaintive troubadour of "After The Goldrush"; the megastar of supergroup Crosby Stills, Nash and Young; the proto-grunge merchant of "Rust Never Sleeps and Weld"; the Nashville schlocker of "Old Ways"; or (bizarrely) the electro-cowboy of "Trans".
