Neil Young recovering from brain aneurysm
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7368611 /

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.

2. "Thrasher" by N. Young
I searched out my companions, that
were lost in crystal canyons

When the aimless blade of science slashed the pearly gates

It was then I knew I had enough, burned my credit card for fuel

Headed out to where the pavement turned to sand

With a one way ticket to the land of truth and with my suitcase in my hand

How I lost my friends I still don't understand.
