A Happy Chapter for Liza
Liza in the Linc-Volt Jacket
Last May, Neil Young's Linc-Volt Team held a music video contest for the song "Johnny Magic" and Liza from Germany was voted as the winner of the contest. Naturally, Liza was thrilled to win -- both for the recognition of her video and the first prize Linc-Volt jacket.
But then tragedy struck when her husband Michael -- after 18 years of marriage and father of four wonderful boys -- died suddenly without warning in his office.
The Neil community was shocked and rallied around Liza offering support and encouraging her not to give up her tickets to the upcoming Neil Young concert in Cologne, Germany. Liza was reluctant about attending the concert as she mourned the loss of her husband but reconsidered after reading the story of another grieving Neil fan who made a wish for "Harvest Moon" in concert.
And -- sure enough -- her wish for "Harvest Moon" was granted.
So, the months go by. Time and grief begin to heal. But where's the Linc-Volt jacket?
Well, it would seem that with the Europe tour, The Archives releases, and all the other activities, somehow the shipment of Liza's prize was overlooked.
On a post last week on the State Of Lincvolt & Special Guest in Garage, some comments were exchanged not only on the state of Lincvolt but the state of Liza's jacket as well.
We guess someone must have been reading because today we received a copy of this note from Liza:
Dear Neil and Pegi, dear ShakeyPictures and LincVolt-Team,
About an hour ago the long awaited package from California arrived here in Germany. My son David opened the door, when the FedEx man rang the doorbell.
When I asked him who was at the door, my son just said, oh, you got a package...
I went to see and my heart started beating.....it said : South San Francisco, CA.... and of course, right away I knew: this must be the jacket !!
We opened the package and were even more excited, two jackets and two caps.
And of course, best of all, with Neil's very fantastic autograph on one jacket and on one of the caps...
Thank you so much for being so generous! You really made me very, very happy today.
Thank you so much again and again.
Wonderful Liza! You wear it well.
A Rare B. Shakey Signing!
