The genius of Neil Young....I sing this to my car when it plays.....maybe you can too!!


Neil Young had a 1948 Buick Roadmaster hearse which faithfully served him and his young fellow musicians for many years as their band gear transporter as they made great memories. Then in 1962, the gearbox packed up after a missed gearshift on a long descent of a hill outside Blind River, Canada, and that was the end of their van which had been such a part of all those early memories. Their band -- Buffalo Springfield -- was also changing and reforming at that time and it was uncertain whether these changes were going to be good. For several months the car apparently stood abandoned by the roadside, with its "chrome heart shining in the sun" until it was finally moved to a junkyard. It's a lovely song of memories of the times they had with their old Buick, "Mortimer Hearsefeld".

Anyone remember "Neal and Jack and Me" (written by Adrian Belew when he was in King Crimson) about the 1952 Starlight Coupe driven in Jack Kerouac's classic beat generation novel, "On The Road"?

Wasn't THAT the Song played on the Ron Hall Avanti Bonneville Video Tape, the year they were temporarily shut down for a Rainstorm? :ohmy:
