Neil Young Documentary to Highlight the Songwriter's Influences

Neil Young is one of the most influential songwriters in music, but he has never been shy about taking influence from others as well. A new documentary, Here We Are in the Years, traces back the legendary performer’s many inspirations, from the classic rock and roll and the folk revival of the 1950s to the emergence of punk in the ‘70s and the grunge movement of the ‘90s.

Here We Are in the Years takes a look at artists like Elvis, Bob Dylan, Ian & Sylvia and even Johnny Rotten, investigating how they helped shaped Young’s ever-changing sound.

Here We Are in the Years is set for release on June 21.
