Neil Percival Young é um músico e compositor de origem canadense, que fez sua carreira nos Estados Unidos. Conhecido por sua voz suave e suas letras pungentes, Young é uma lenda do rock americano, mas seu estilo musical também inclui o folk e o country rock, alternando com álbuns mais "pesados" em que algumas músicas se aproximam do hard rock, com guitarras "sujas" e longos solos improvisados com muita distorção. Seus shows são verdadeiras celebrações de rock usualmente acompanhado da banda Crazy Horse, que o acompanha desde o início da carreira. Foi considerado o 17º melhor guitarrista do mundo pela revista norte-americana Rolling Stone.
Citações Neil Young
„One of my favorite album covers is On the Beach. Of course that was the name of a movie and I stole it for my record, but that doesn't matter. The idea for that cover came like a bolt from the blue. Gary and I traveled around getting all the pieces to put it together. We went to a junkyard in Santa Ana to get the tail fin and fender from a 1959 Cadillac, complete with taillights, and watched them cut it off a Cadillac for us, then we went to a patio supply place to get the umbrella and table. We picke up the bad polyester yellow jacket and white pants at a sleazy men's shop, where we watched a shoplifter getting caught red-handed and busted. Gary and I were stoned on some dynamite weed and stood there dumbfounded watching the bust unfold. This girl was screaming and kicking! Finally we grabbed a local LA paper to use as a prop. It had this amazing headline: Sen. Buckley Calls For Nixon to Resign. Next we took the palm tree I had taken around the world on the Tonight's the Night tour. We then placed all of these pieces carefully in the sand at Santa Monica beach. Then we shot it. Bob Seidemann was the photographer, the same one who took the famous Blind Faith cover shot of the naked young girl holding the airplane. We used the crazy pattern from the umbrella insides for the inside of the sleeve that held the vinyl recording. That was the creative process at work. We lived for that, Gary and I, and we still do.“

„Did you see them in the river?
They were there to wave to you.
Could you tell that the empty quiver,
Brown skinned Indian on the banks
That were crowded and narrow,
Held a broken arrow?“
— Neil Young
