        Read in news that Neil Young has got his own spider:


        Jason Bond, a biologist at East Carolina University, named a newly discovered arachnid,
        Myrmekiaphila neilyoungi. It is also known as a trapdoor spider.

         http://news.yahoo.com/s/livescience/20080510/sc_livescience/sneakyspidernamedforrockerneilyoung

        The new trapdoor spider is not the first creature to have risen to rocker status. The whirligig beetle (Orectochilus orbisonorum) was named in honor of the late rock 'n' roll legend Roy Orbison and his widow Barbara.

        Neil YOUNG,
        born November 12, 1945 at 4:00 AM in Toronto (Canada)
