Hahaha...I could never see why people pay good money to listen to this guy or to Bruce Springsteen....

Neither can I. They both stink on ice.

“That’s pretty cool. You’re dreams must be Peyote based.”

Nah. I just like Rat Rods,,, and that’s about as Ratty as they come. My first car, almost 50 years ago was a ‘29 Oakland sedan. My Dad figured it’s be pretty safe,,, and slow!
Peyote? I’d never take somethin’ that made you puke! Lotta friends did though. And they all puked.

I can think of a number of entrepenuers that are working on cutting edge vehicles that could have serious production intent that could have used this 1.1 million dollars in the Late Jack Kemp's term "Seed Corn" to get their potential products moving forward.

What a waste of capital and time from someone who has the Capital to do so.

I will never understand the Liberal, or former drugged out Liberal Mind....

Somebody booked him at a club I worked at in Dallas in the ‘80s. Nice guy, but they stopped the show when he lit his stovepipe hat on fire indoors.

Not to be mean but this has to be the worst thing tht could ever happen to a lib like Young. His Enviroweenie machine killed all of his memorabilia of his life...there has to be a metafore in there somewhere?

Exactly. If I wanted to listen to a cat vomiting to music, I’d put on “Harvest Moon” while encouraging my felines to eat grass.

Oh and how do we know this isn’t insurance fraud? Libs love defrauding and bringing popcorn to their own property fires.

Was a huge NY fan thorugh the years with 30 albums plus. Then came that vindictive anti Bush work about 4 years ago.

I see it as ultimate karma.

Maybe I'm telling you something you already know, but that one was America not Neil Young.

Neil was trying to hybridize classic Detroit Iron. Maybe he’s competing with Willie Nelson and his bio-diesel powered tour bus. Anyway I’ll always like Neil especially his older songs. I could care less if he’s gone kind of moonbat politically.

I love you and your music to death Neil, but you are an environmental wacko. Sadly, the only time I got to see him live was his gore-fest Greendale tour, which, aside from the message, was awesome, as he did a full Crazy Horse set for the encore. But still, yeah, LFMAO.

On another note, it’s great to know that Slayer are true conservatives and thrashing my brains out still. Dittohead!
