Neil Young, yesterday

Just call me Spiderman

Oh, what a lucky fellow he is!

Canadian singer-songwriter, guitarist and "Father of Grunge" Neil Young has had a spider named after him.

East Carolina University biologist and Neil Young fan, Jason Bond, discovered a new species of trapdoor spider and named it Myrmekiaphila neilyoungi. This follows news that earlier this year Roy Orbison had a beetle named after him.

Neither Neil Young nor the spider were available for comment.
