As with so many of his 1960s contemporaries, his first love was the classic rock & roll of the mid-1950s, but as the 50s tuned into the 60s, twangy guitars took over, both for pleasure and for guidance - indeed his first band, The Squires, were dead-ringers for The Shadows. The folk-revival of the late 1950s didn't pass Neil by, and from this genre he was deeply moved by fellow Canadians Ian & Sylvia, whom Young would never forget, recording their 'Four Strong Winds' in 1978 and still name-dropping the husband and wife act to this day. Bob Dylan's affect on Neil is well known but by mid decade, British folk-blues guitarist and composer Bert Jansch had equally hit a note with Young, and years later they would tread the boards together on many occasions. But Young wasn't stuck in the decade in which he emerged as a musician. Throughout the late 1960s and the 1970s he kept an ear to the ground and, despite claiming in 1975 that he had given up listening to other people's records, he was clearly enthralled by both the impulse and the sounds of the punk revolution. His work with new-wavers Devo compounded this ongoing delight in new sounds and the technology that accompanied them, and by 1982's Trans it was no secret he'd had Kraftwerk on heavy rotation. And while during the 1980s he often harked back to styles previously toyed with - country, rockabilly, folk, r'n'b - his early 90s salutations from grunge's finest weren't shrugged off with the kind of disinterest that may have been forthcoming from others of his vintage. Neil both made records with and wrote songs about some of the best of these young upstarts and the teacher became the pupil in a wholly bewildering chain of events. This film traces the astonishing musical journey of Neil Young from the day he first heard Elvis to his most recent offerings, via the above named and numerous others who assisted in his creation of, arguably, the finest body of work to emerge during the rock era.
