Canadian singer and songwriter Neil Young includes his personal garage band Crazy Horse (“second best backing band in the world”) to make raw and unpolished rock. Their gritty style of rock has influenced countless artists and music styles.

Crazy Horse is best known for its long association with Young, despite having released five albums of its own over a 19-year span. It has been co-credited with Young as Neil Young and Crazy Horse on 15 albums, “Americana” and “Psychedelic Pill” from 2012 being the latest.

The band recorded a concept album entitled “Greendale” (2003) that told the story using metaphors of murder and crime to represent the destruction of a small town community. The final song “Be The Rain” is one of Neil’s classic epics, pleading for the world to be like the rain — recycle and conserve to save our planet.

Discography: the studio albums “Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere” (1969), “Zuma” (1975), “Rust Never Sleeps” (1979), “Re-ac-tor” (1981), “Life” (1987), “Ragged Glory” (1990), “Sleeps With Angels” (1994), “Broken Arrow” (1996), Greendale (2003), and live albums “Live Rust” (1979), “Weld” (1991), “Year of the Horse” (1997), “Live at the Fillmore East” (2006), “Americana” (2012), Psychedelic Pill (2012)
