Young and the Restless

Neil Young suffered a brain aneurysm a couple of weeks ago, and has just gotten it treated. As the article notes, he will not be able to perform at the Juno awards this year because of it.

I've been a huge fan of Neil Young for a long time. Although his best songs were written before I was born, he has consistently and continually put out hit after hit after hit. Even though his political views vary from decent to down-right bizarre, there is something in his music for everyone.
