NEW YORK - Neil Young was treated for a brain aneurysm this week and remains hospitalized, although doctors expect a full recovery, his publicist said Friday.
The 59-year-old rocker underwent a procedure to treat it Tuesday night at a New York hospital, where he was expected to remain for a few more days, publicist Bob Merlis told The Associated Press.
Dr. Pierre Gobin, who performed the procedure with another doctor, said: "Mr. Young had a dangerous brain aneurysm and was treated successfully by the minimally invasive neuroradiology team here. He is now resting comfortably ... but we strongly recommend that he not travel for several days."
Young had been expected to perform Sunday at the Juno Awards the Canadian equivalent of the Grammys.
"I'm really disappointed that I won't be able to make it to Winnipeg for the Junos as I had hoped. I grew up there and was really looking forward to the show as well as spending some time with my old friends and family," Young said. "Thanks to my doctors, I'm feeling a lot better now so I hope I can get a rain check."
The aneurysm was discovered when Young's vision became blurry after attending the March 14 induction ceremonies for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Merlis said. An examination by a neurologist detected the aneurysm and the procedure was scheduled.
The veteran rocker is expected to resume normal activities soon. But for now, Merlis said, "He's got to take it easy."
Maybe this one was in his other brain?
Well....I hope Neil Young will remember.....Southern Man don't need him around anyhow.....
"Southern Man don't need him around anyhow....."
We don't want him up here either.
Judge Greer wants to help Neil Young find peace and serenity.
I'm surprised he has any brain left.
And his song "Let's Roll" certainly caught the essence of 9/11.
lol . . . I was wondering if I dared post that, see I don't need to!
Politics aside.....I have to admit that the ten minute version of "Cowgirl in the Sand" rocks.
Get better Neil.
I liked that song a lot. I liked "4 Dead in Ohio" too.
Tin soldiers and Nixons coming...
No betrayal. Neil wrote a song about certain aspects of Alabama (and and an Alabama that doesn't exist anymore) that was far from flattering, and Skynyrd responded with "Sweet Home." Two great songs, two legendary (and class) acts. .....And they remained friends throughout. People try to make a much bigger deal out of it than it was, as if they were bitter enemies.
Neil Young is still alive?
- "Campaigner," Neil Young
You like Skynyrd? Ugh.....
Pre-'77 Skynyrd. ....and yeah, I like them a lot.
