Neil Young is easily the most influential musician in Canadian history. Born in Toronto in 1945 to sports writer Scott Young and his wife, Rassy, he spent his childhood in Winnipeg before returning to Toronto as an adult. While living in Toronto, he played a wide variety of bars and coffee houses, primarily in the district that is now known as Yorkdale. At this time, Young signed a record contract with Motown as part of the Mynah Birds, which featured Rick James on vocals. The contract, however, fell through in 1966 when James was arrested for draft evasion. Shortly afterwards, Young ventured to Los Angeles with the Mynah Birds’ bassist, Bruce Palmer, to try and establish a career in music. Upon arriving in LA, they formed a band called Buffalo Springfield alongside fellow musicians Stephen Stills, Richie Furay, and Dewey Martin.
