artists influenced by Neil Young

US Recording Academy honours Neil Young
Neil Young has been named person of the year by the US Recording Academy.
The US Recording Academy has recognised the achievements of singer-songwriter Neil Young.

In a ceremony over the weekend, the legendary star was announced as the Musicares person of the year for the influence his music has had on other artists, while his philanthropic work was also lauded.

A number of other leading lights performed some of the Heart of Gold singer's greatest hits, with Elton John singing Helpless and telling the audience that Young is his "hero".

Other performers covering the Canadian's songs included Sheryl Crow, Dave Matthews, James Taylor and former bandmates David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash.

Young told the audience: "I'd forgotten how many songs I'd written. It's been a great night. It wore me out. Now I've got to go back and try and write some more songs."

Last week, Arctic Monkeys and Kasabian secured a clutch of nominations for the Shockwaves NME Awards 2010, competing for six gongs each.
