“Son you’re gonna drive me to drinkin’ If you don’t stop driving that hot rod Lincoln.”
The minute Neil Young started collaborating with Pearl Jam, I disliked him immensely. I felt the group had found its Yoko Ono and lost some of its creativity. I didn’t mind the guy — just the fact that he was messing with a group that I loved growing up. Ah, the 90s. But I digress…
Neil Young is certainly not holding back from rockin’ with the latest in green rides. The rock legend is currently touring the country in a soon-to-be converted 1959 Lincoln Continental Mark IV named Linc-Volt . The car visited Google’s HQ last month as part of Neil’s efforts to address the advantages of alternative fuels and get people talking about the technology. Him and his crew will be documenting their experience as they travel. From the post,
“From Mountain View, the journey continues to Wichita, Kansas, where the Mark IV will be converted from a carbureted gas guzzler to a bio-diesel series PHEV. After Neil’s fall tour and annual Bridge School Benefit Concert, the Linc-Volt will undergo interior restoration. Then the bio-diesel-electro-cruiser will power on to Detroit; back to its factory in Wixom, Michigan; and then to the east coast.”
Way to go Neil. While I dislike what you did with Pearl Jam, I love what you’re doing out on the road. Keep on rockin’ in the free world.
