Neil holds the late Ben Keith’s award up toward heaven.

“You’re in heaven…I’m workin’ “

Neil Young honored his friend and band mate Ben Keith at the Musician’s Hall of Fame induction concert, held Tuesday, Jan. 28 at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium.

He appeared on stage with Keith’s grandson, DJ Tyson.

The Tennessean is reporting that Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Neil Young was among those accepting medallions in honor of posthumous inductees — in Young’s case, it was for pedal steel guitar master Ben Keith, who was one Nashville’s top session players before becoming a member of Young’s band for nearly 40 years until his death in 2010. Stevie Ray Vaughan’s band Double Trouble attended and was set to perform on behalf of the blues guitar great, and members of Roy Orbison’s family

After a cocktail hour, the inductees and their friends, family and fans gathered upstairs at Municipal for a musical celebration of the songs they helped make famous – from “American Woman” to “Elvira.”

Retro rock crooner Chris Isaak opened the evening with a cover of Orbison’s “Only the Lonely,” as the first of several well-known performers to salute the inductees, including ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and the Oak Ridge Boys.  Young didn’t perform on Tuesday, but took the stage to share his memories of Keith.

Like Bob Dylan, with whom he is most comparable, Young periodically falls in and out of favor with public taste, but at no point in the past has that stunted his ambition.
