Legendary rocker Neil Young underwent surgery last Tuesday to treat a brain aneurysm. According to the BBC, Dr. Pierre Gobin said: “Mr Young was treated successfully by the minimally invasive neuroradiology team. He is now resting comfortably.” The aneurysm was discovered last month after participating in the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame ceremony, when his vision reportedly became blurred. Young is expected to make a full recovery.
He was scheduled to perform at Canada’s Juno awards, but had to cancel as his doctors advised him not to travel. Young said: ““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. Thanks to my doctors, I’m feeling a lot better now so I hope I can get a rain check.”
We wish Mr. Young a speedy recovery.
