"Johnny Magic" Video Premiere
Neil Young recently shot two videos for the single "Johnny Magic" off his upcoming album, "Fork In The Road," and they're both premiering this week.
Here's the first version, which was shot entirely in Neil's Lincvolt (which you can check out at lincvolt.com). (Sorry, but commercial pre-roll).
The video is rather extraordinary. The four minute video was filmed as a single take while Neil drives LincVolt on the streets of Wichita, KS
Another amazing part of the video is that the filming was streamed live on lincvolt.com while fans watched the stream and chatted real time. It was all pretty cool.
Great lyrics on the Motorhead Messiah "Johnny Magic". Maybe not Neil's most poetic but a heartfelt sincere paean to his new best friend. (Lyrics for "Johnny Magic" -- Neil's homage to his LincVolt mechanic Johnathan Goodwin.)
The video doesn't seem to pickup the background too well tho.
Then on Wednesday the 11th, huffingtonpost.com, will premiere the second version of "Johnny Magic," which was shot in another car along with a very special travel companion.
Also, here are lyrics for "Johnny Magic" -- Neil's homage to his LincVolt mechanic Johnathan Goodwin.
