Rock Stories: Fixing Neil's Phone
We received a note from Lowell not to long ago letting us know about his blog Lowell's Rock Stories.
Back in the 1980's, Lowell worked in Management at Poplar Creek Music Theatre in Hoffman Estates, IL. The venue played host to every type of band, artist and rock show of the day. Lowell's got lots of fun stories from the Theatre and his life in Music.
So here's Lowell's story about the time Neil Young's bus phone broke and needed a repair.
It's 1987. I'm living in California where I managed a cellular phone store in San Jose. One day, the phone rings and it's a guy asking for the manager;
"You gotta help me."
"My bosses cellphone is busted and you've got to fix it - today. He (the boss) is really pissed."
"OK- I take it your boss is a customer of ours?"
"Yes. His name is Neil Young."
"OK. Can we see the vehicle today?"
"Ya - I can bring it too you. I'll be there in an hour or so."
"OK- we'll see what we can do."
