Well, I dreamed I saw the knights in armor...
WINNIPEG, Manitoba (Reuters) - Neil Young couldn't make it on Sunday to Canada's annual music awards in the prairie city where he played in his first bands, but he was lauded by other musicians at the Juno Awards.
Young, 59, underwent surgery for a brain aneurysm on March 29. He is expected to completely recover, but doctors advised him not to travel or perform.
"If there is a beacon or a bastion of an artist who has maintained his integrity, uncompromising vision, and purity, it is Neil Young," said k.d. lang, who performed Young's "Helpless" during the awards show.
Keep on rockin' in the free world, Neil!
