1. Neil Young
Neil Young's father, Scott Young, was a highly acclaimed Canadian sportswriter and his mother, Rassy, was a panelist on a Canadian game show (among many other things). He grew up in Omemee (the famed town in North Ontario from "Helpless"), but moved to Los Angeles in 1966 to start Buffalo Springfield. California has been his primary residence ever since, but he never became an American citizen and still has close ties to Canada. In his 2011 movie Neil Young Journeys, he takes filmmaker Jonathan Demme back to Omemee and recounts tales from his early days.
