Neil Young took part in a Twitter Q&A session earlier today (October 24), in which he asked his fans "who is Bono?".

The legendary rocker made the dismissive comment about the U2 frontman after he was asked what his opinion was of the band Foster The People. Young was asked by @akemi99 "what do you like about foster the people? #askneil btw, bono said he likes them, too... it is surprising two super stars like them..". Young replied: "who is Bono?".

Young was also asked by @kellyapritchard if he'd be making any more 'rock operas' similar to his Greendale project, to which he responded: "anything can happen".

He also took the time to reply to @jana_pe's question "what would happen if you were locked alone in a room with only a jar of nutella?" with the answer "creative things".

Neil Young and Crazy Horse's new album 'Psychedelic Pill' is currently streaming ahead of its official release at neilyoungpsychpill.warnerreprise.com

'Psychedelic Pill' is out on October 29. The album follows June's covers LP 'Americana'. 'Psychedelic Pill' is Young's first album of all new material with Crazy Horse since 2003.

The Neil Young Times states that the album was recorded straight after the band finished their 'Americana' sessions at the Audio Casa Blanca studios.

Guns N' Roses, Jack White and surprise guest Eddie Vedder played Neil Young's annual Bridge School Benefit in California last weekend.

The fundraiser ended with all of the musical stars, bar Axl Rose, joining Neil Young on stage as he closed the show with a solo set. Jack White, Eddie Vedder, Mark Foster, kd Lang, Wayne Coyne and more all joined Young on 'Rockin' In The Free World'.

Proceeds from the annual concert benefit the Bridge School in Hillsborough, California, which assists children with severe physical impairments and complex communication needs. Two of Young's children, Zeke and Ben, were diagnosed with cerebral palsy at an early age.
