Forget about Neil's performing career for just a moment; even if he never picked up a guitar, he'd [i]still[/i] be in the Hall of Fame. Want proof? Just check out the seemingly endless list — and astonishing variety — of artists who've tried their hand at a Neil Young classic. Fellow Canadians the Cowboy Junkies defuse the double-barreled explosion of Young's "Powderfinger" and spin it out, instead, like a late-night [i]canción[/i] from a Ciudad Juarez cantina. The Carpenters pry all the irony out of "Nowadays Clancy Can't Even Sing" and gloss it up with a spun-sugar sheen of stunning vocal aerobatics. And speaking of gorgeous harmonies, you can't imagine a more angelic trio than Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, and Dolly Parton merging their voices for an almost hymn-like take on "After the Gold Rush." Finally, the adolescent crinkliness of Frank Black's vocal smacks headlong into the alt-grunge growl of Joey Santiago's ragged-but-right guitar in the Pixies' affectionate cover of "Winterlong." But don't stop there — from David Bowie to Dave Matthews, from Rush to Oasis, artists of every shape, size, and sound turn toward Toronto's favorite rockin' son for inspiration.
