Rocker Neil Young is recovering from a brain aneurysm, because of which he was hospitalized this week
Rocker Neil Young is recovering from a brain aneurysm after underwent a procedure to treat it Tuesday night at a New York hospital and remained there for a few more days. The aneurysm was firstly discovered when Young's vision became blurry after attending the March 14 induction ceremonies for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. An immediate examination by a neurologist detected the aneurysm and so the procedure was scheduled.
Dr. Pierre Gobin, who performed the procedure with another doctor, said that Young had a dangerous brain aneurysm and was treated successfully by the minimally invasive neuroradiology team in the hospital. And now he's ok, but is strongly recommended not to travel for several days. Had been expected to perform Sunday at the Juno Awards, the 59-year-old man says his regret that he isn't able to make it to Winnipeg for the Junos as he hoped.
