Scott McCaughey was in many bands as Young Fresh Fellows, The Minus 5, Baseball Project, The Filthy Friends and has been part of R.E.M. from 1994 to 2011, the year the Athens band broke up. In 2017, Scott had a stroke and lost the ability to talk, sing and play instruments. As part of his rehabilitation he decided to try to remember the music he loved most during the last fifty years.
These tributes to Neil Young comes from that desire. He started to work on the first one at the beginning of 2020 and released the first volume, NEIL (VOL. 1), back in 2020.
