The album called, Harvest Moon was recorded by Neil Young in 1992. One of my favorite songs is Harvest Moon… which Neil Young wrote and performed. Several artists have recorded the song since it was introduced.
Neil Young was born in 1945 and began to perform in 1960. He sang with Crosby, Stills and Nash before he released his first album in 1958. He has made 34 albums and is still performing.
A few of the musicians that influenced Neil Young are Elvis Presley, The Fleetwoods, Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash. He really liked Bob Dylan too.
He first started to play music on a plastic ukulele, then a baritone ukulele. Finally he picked up a guitar.
In 1969, Crosby, Stills & Nash included him in their band. It was then called, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. They won the “Best New Artist” award at the 1969 Grammy Awards. They also sang in the famous Woodstock Festival.
In 1976, Young had the opportunity to perform with Bob Dylan in a concert called, “The Last Waltz.” Other famous musicians were there too. Some of them were Joni Mitchell, Ringo Star, Eric Clapton, Niel Diamond, and Emmy Lou Harris.
I think that would be so cool to be able to meet all of those famous artists in one place.
The media gave Young the name, “The Godfather Of Grunge” because of his regular use of a distorted guitar sound.
“Harvest Moon” is one of my most requested songs that I perform.
