Pictured here is a baby-faced Spock back in the 1950s. He wouldn't begin his trek as the iconic character until 1964 in various television shows as well as multiple feature and cameo film. 

At this point in his life, he had enlisted in the U.S. Army reserves in the early 1950's. Nimoy spent 18 months in the reserves and put on entertaining shows for the Army Special Services during his tenor. He left the military with the rank of Sergeant and went on to become Spock. 

His name became synonymous with the character, so much that, when he decided to start making music, he released albums as "Dr. Spock" and both of his autobiographies are centered on the character (i.e. I Am Not Spock, 1975 and I Am Spock, 1995).

The folk-rock supergroup initially made up of David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash became known as CSN for Crosby, Stills, Nash. Then later it was CSNY when singer-songwriter Neil Young came aboard. Between their music and their political activism, they left a lasting influence on both music and culture in the United States.

Crosby, Stills & Nash were all inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for their work together and for their work with their respective groups. The same goes for Neil Young, who was inducted both as a solo artist and as a member of Buffalo Springfield.
