Being 17 years old, Lofgren became a member of Neil Young’s band Crazy Horse, and became the part of the legendary albums “After the Gold Rush” (1970) and “Tonight’s the Night” (1975). Meanwhile, he worked with his own band entitled Grin. His fame grew rapidly, and early in 1975 he began a solo career, becoming well known for his live performances. His first, self-titled solo album released in 1975 was an immediate international success. Altogether, eight of his albums have reached the Billboard Top 200 Album chart, including “Cry Tough” (1976), “I Came to Dance” (1977), “Night After Night” (1977), “Nils” (1978), “Night Fades Away” (1981), “Flip” (1985) and “Silver Lining” (1991).
