Yes, I have a lot of his albums. I think him and Bob Dylan would be my favourites from all the 60s \ 70s period. Though I like Bowie a lot too. Neil Young feels the more timeless of them all. I think if a young garage band started playing what Young was playing in 1969 it would still feel really up to date. And then he had his computer techno period in the early 80s which still really holds up in my opinion.
My brother gave me his copy of Everybody Knows this is Nowhere when I was 11, and almost 40 years on, I still love it. A garage band with any taste whatsoever would play covers of his tunes, especially those he cut when he was with Crazy Horse.
