LOS ANGELES — Rock music’s biggest stars turned up and turned on (musically) Friday to show Neil Young, in a raucous rock-concert serenade, that they believe Canada’s own rock/folk hero truly does have a heart of gold.

Canada’s iconic and uncompromising troubadour was named by Grammy producers as MusiCares 2010 Person of the Year for his many philanthropic endeavours and his profound musical influence.

“Oh yes, it is raucous,” said session drummer Kenny Aronoff who kept the beat for a star-studded cast of musicians performing songs written by Young.

“The real raucous song is Rockin’ in the Free World with Keith Urban. That song was made to rock out. It really rocks — I’m breakin’ stuff.”

I've seen nothing but raves for Keith's performance. Wonder what the skeptics will have to say about that! And I love seeing photos of him with other artists. They always seem to show what great rapport Keith has with them.
