Neil Young Recovers from Brain Aneurism

The reigning critical king of classic rock is in the hospital, recovering from mildly invasive surgery to correct a brain aneurism. After Young, 59, experienced visual disturbances at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony, an MRI scan was taken. A burst blood vessel was discovered and surgery planned. Young’s agent, Bob Merlis, describes the operation as “a complete success with a total recovery [expected].” Merlis added that the “resumption of normal activities by the 59-year-old rock legend is predicted for the near future.” Young had to skip a performance at Canada’s equivalent of the Grammys, the Juno Awards, over the weekend.
