Una biografía de Neil Young

Quitando alguna que otra cosa, aun no me he topado con una biografía extensa sobre la vida de nuestro Tío Neil para hispanos.
No pretendo tanto como una traducción autorizada de las obras de Jimmy McDonough o John Einarson, por ejemplo.
Yo me conformaría con algo tan sencillo como lo que me he encontrado en Biography.com. Mira, mira...

Neil Young

Starting out as a folk-rocker with bands like Buffalo Springfield in the sixties and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young in the seventies, Neil Young established himself as an original, compelling voice of rebellion for the Woodstock generation. But while other icons of that generation faded, Young's uncompromising, rebellious spirit crashed through generational barriers. He was embraced by Punk rockers and eighties bands like Devo and Sonic Youth. In the nineties, he was dubbed "The Godfather of Grunge." Young has proven himself to be the most durable of all the rock musicians of his generation.
