Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young

The 2013 MusiCares tribute to Bruce Springsteen will feature performances by Elton John, Neil Young, Mumford & Sons, Sting, Mavis Staples, Juanes, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, Jackson Browne, Alabama Shakes, and Kenny Chesney.

The tribute to Springsteen will be on Feb. 8 in Los Angeles two days before the Grammy Awards.

Springsteen is MusiCare's person of the year, an award given to a performer who is notable both artistically and philanthropically. The sold-out concert will benefit MusiCare's emergency financial assistance and addiction recovery programs.

Neil Young was honored as MusiCares Person Of The Year in 2010. Also, Neil Young & Crazy Horse performed at the Paul McCartney Musicares Benefit in 2012.

Has anyone ever seen the video of "I Saw Her Standing There" from last year's show? One of those mysteries about why it hasn't made it out into the world.

I assume they will release last year's on DVD like they have others (Neil being honored)...but why hasn't Palladia or some other station picked it up for broadcast?

And I read on Suck-ass Rolling that this year's concert honoring Bruce will be shown on

Interesting to see which song Neil performs. I'm betting it will be Promised Land. My choice would be Racing In The Streets, but pretty sure that Elton will do that one. Should be great whatever songs they perform. And which song will Mavis do? Tunnel of Love would be an awesome choice!

Maybe we can start a pool, with everyone predicting who will do which song. Kind of like March Madness....

Has it been mentioned over here that Neil is in the Sound City movie by Dave Grohl?
