Young discovered his greatest passion and started his musical career when he was very young. He founded his first band The Jades when he was in high school.

His first commercial success came with Buffalo Springfield which he formed in 1966 with Bruce Palmer, Dewey Martin, Stephen Stills, and Richie Furay.
