Rock legend Young out of hospital
Neil Young
Young is expected to go back into the recording studio soon
Singer Neil Young has left hospital and is making "excellent" progress after having brain surgery last week, his agent has said.

The rock legend, 59, was treated for a brain aneurysm in New York on 29 March.

"The doctors say his progress has been excellent and the expectation is that he will make a full recovery," agent Bob Merlis said.

He is recuperating in New York and is expected to go to Nashville in the coming days to go back into the studio.


The aneurysm was discovered when Young's vision became blurred after the induction ceremony for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last month.

The singer missed the Juno Awards in his home country of Canada on Sunday - but watched the ceremony at the Canadian consulate.

The show included tributes to Young, including one from KD Lang, who described him as "an artist who has maintained his integrity, vision and purity".

Young, whose body of work over 30 years is acclaimed for its depth and diversity, is revered for his solo work as well as stints with Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young.
