The Influence Roots of Neil Young
A diverse array of bands have been influenced by Neil Young;s sound over the years. From The Age:
"Many of this year's best albums, from bands such as My Morning Jacket, Grandaddy, Will Oldham and the Autumn Defense, have their roots in Young's soulful country sound. But Young says he's too busy with his own work to keep tabs on new music.
YOUNG: 'I listen to the radio, where you only hear what the corporate people decide you should listen to, so that's not rewarding. Hopefully now with the implosion of the record business, the radio waves will open up a bit. I just listen to stuff at parties, but I don't have time to go out and check on things.'"
