    Yikes, friend of mine had something similar, still dealing with some issues related to impulse control, depression & pain over a year later.

    Fingers crossed Neil Young makes a full recovery :!:

    NEW YORK – Neil Young is recovering from surgery to address a brain aneurysm.

    After performing with the Pretenders on March 14 at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in New York, the artist experienced what his publicist describes as "visual field disturbances," and an MRI scan revealed the source of the problem.

    Rather than have surgery immediately, Young spent the next week in Nashville recording for an as-yet-unrevealed project. Tuesday’s (March 29) procedure has been called "a complete success," and Young is expected to make a full recovery. But the artist has been forced to cancel his planned Sunday (April 3) appearance at Canada’s Juno Awards while he recuperates.

    "I grew up (in Winnipeg) and was really looking forward to the show as well as spending some time with my old friends and family," Young said in a statement. "Thanks to my doctors, I’m feeling a lot better now, so I hope I can get a rain check."

    I was really looking forward to the Junos but Neil’s health is much more important. I was so relieved to read that he will be making a full recovery. I was worried that the Neil we know and love wouldn’t be the same after that. I bet Winnipeg is more than a little sad.

    I read "Shakey" and it mentions many times that Neil would fake seizures to get out of shows he didn’t want to play. I don’t mean to suggest anything but…

    Makes perfect sense to me :lol:

    I hope that full recovery happens, my friends was repaired also before it burst, guess it depends on what region of the brain they have to make repairs in… :shock:
