As noted previously, Neil Young was honoured at a pre-Grammy Awards ceremony this weekend - with showbiz figures such as Elton, Keith Urban and Norah Jones taking the stage to perform his hits.

Neil was named the Musicares Person Of The Year by the U.S. Recording Academy, the organisation behind the Grammy Awards, which took place a couple of days later.

The night included a charity auction which sold off prizes including the chance to sing backup vocals on former Beach Boy Brian Wilson's next album, which was snapped up by Sir Elton who paid a reported $12,000 for the privilege.

Black also contributed to the sale - offering up the shoes he was wearing, which sold for $600.
