Neil Young's 1st Professional Gig

January 31, 2016

 

Tonight in 1963...

A seventeen-year-old “Neil Young” makes his stage debut

with ‘The Squires’ at a country club in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada...

I did my first paying gig with 'The Moonglows'

in the Italian Arthur Avenue Section of The Bronx...

After the gig...my friends handed me a twenty dollar bill

and said "you're now a professional"...

I wonder what Neil got paid for the night...!
