Tonight’s the night…

Neil Young turns 60. Here is a guy who emerged, much like Van Morrison and Richard Thompson, as a fully formed artist pursuing his own muse from his first recordings in the 1960’s. Since he left Buffalo Springfield in 1968, he has kept at it through his many highs as well as a few lows. For the backstory of the sixties — the drugs that ravaged so many talented musicians among his peers — there is no document quite like Young’s unsparing “Tonight’s the Night.”
