I never forgot seeing Neil Young with Crazy Horse at the Philmore East In the East Village.(maybe 1969) They had just come out with their first album. When he did his Buffalo Springfield song” I Am A Child” all alone on stage I felt he was pouring out his very soul. For two encores they did “Cinnamon Girl’ a second and third time during the concert. I have loved Neil Young since then. We got old together. Later on when he released “Old Man” (on his “Harvest” album) I thought he was talking about me for I was twenty-four then and my relationship with my Dad was very ragged then. The line in the song was ‘twenty-four and so much more’ and went on from there.
