Get out of the garage and back in the studio Neil!

Man he get's sidetracked easy! First Lionel, now this!

If Neil needs his batteries re-charged, thats fine with me. This is what Neil has done his entire career and is what keeps his delivering the goods. We all need a vacation...a distraction sometimes.

In the hallways of the ages, on the road to history,
What we do now will always be with us.

It's a chance to give new meaning to every move we make,
In the caverns, in the caves, where we come from.

Instead of cursing the darkness,
Light a candle for where we're going,
There's something ahead, worth looking for.

When the light of time is on us,
We will see our moment come,
And the living soul inside will carry on.

Keep on Rockin' Neil!

Nice pics of Neil and Stephen in the garage!
Since Neil allways does the unexpected... imagine... we get a Stills-Young Band reunion tour in 2010... off course with 10 new songs.

Anyway, did you ever see an electric car on the road? A real one, like good old Linc Volt?

In the morning of 09-09-2009 I was on on the way to the local record store. Riding a bicycle. Yes. Somewhere half way there was this car next to me. Zooming and producing only the sound of the tires.
It was amazing. I never experienced this before and had to think about old Neil and Linc Volt. Now I really understand what he is working on. Simply amazing. And clean too.

Have to confess that I never liked the idea of a car without sound. Allways had the idea that my old car without V8 sounds like Neil without Old Black. Which is 100% true. But then again the impact of an electric car is overwhelming. Think about it.

Is Liza from Germany still around here?
I wanted to know whether she received yet the LincVolt-Jacket she won at Neil's LV-video-contest. Would be good to see a photo of Liza in the
LV-jacket =;)

Hi baron,

thanks for asking. Yes, I'm still around. No, I haven't received the LincVolt Jacket yet. I waited for a long time, but then I got tired of waiting and two or three weeks ago I wrote two mails to ShakeyPix and asked if the jacket was on it's way to Germany.
But nobody has answered me so far...

-Regards, Liza

Liza, it's a pity that you have not received your prize for
winning the Johnny Magic Contest. After all the jacket
would be a very special remambrance of Michael who
shot the video.

hi liza,
i would be so happy to see you smiling in the LV-jacket

I passed along your note.

Hopefully we'll see you sporting an LV jacket soon!

much greetings from the castle, see us again soon!

Thank you for your comments, Con, new albert and old albert!

And thank you so much, Thrasher, for your effective support!
Contest guy has answered now and wrote, that he didn't check this email. Then he asked what size I would like to have.

I wrote back this morning and was so keen to ask for a LV cap too - or maybe two or three - for my German Neil-friends......
hope I didn't ask for too much here.....
but, we will see.

Love, Liza

I can not understand why the jacket is not with Liza! I hope Neil still send them to you ...

Hi Liza,
Hope time is healing your sad loss.Good to see you back on the wheat.
Hang in there and savour those Neil songs that meant so much to you both. I miss my dad as you do Michael, but its those Neil songs that mean so much that rekindles the happy memories...keep on lighting that candle!

luv Dip

Andreas, Hawk&Rusty, thanks for your nice comments!

Dr. Dip, thank you for your sensitive comment. The very sharp pain of the first weeks after the loss has become a bit milder. But it is still not easy and often a struggle to live this new life without Michael. Last Thursday he would have turned 53, that was not an easy day. But friends came to visit, that helped.
And yes, of course, Neil's music helps too.....

Love, Liza

And good luck with the LV jacket and caps!

Liza - That's great you've been in touch with the LV team.

Please let us know how the jacket fits!

Wow, its really great to see all the friends helping and supporting Liza here...
I hope now you will get the LV-jacket soon.
We all are looking forward to see you in Huelchrath Castle, Liza, and we hope you will show us the jacket there. Maybe Neil will sign the LV-jacket personally?

Greetings from Thuringia

Jill, I feel sorry for your loss and I want to thank you for your comment and your reassuring words!

Thrasher, yes, it's great that Contest Guy has answered now. Of course, I answered right away and now I'm looking forward to his next reply.

Roland, thank you, too! You are right, it's great to be part of the worldwide Neil-Community!
And yes, I did ask Contest Guy, if it is possible to have Neil sign the Jacket....

Love, Liza

Hi Neil and LV team,
hi Thrasher, hi Neil-Community,

just this weekend I visited Liza with my Neil-friend Albert.
We had a great time together.

Liza showed us all the places where she and her late husband
Michael shot the video for the JM contest. Of course, we felt Michael
was with us all the time.

While we were hiking through the vineyards, we were wondering when the
jacket would be with Liza. This afternoon I got the mail with the big
news. Liza was very happy and excited about the jacket and mailed some
first fotos.

I called her, to tell her that I was so happy for her. I really liked
Michael a lot. Therefore I want to thank all of you for making it
possible, that this jacket is such a special memory
of Michael.

Now that Liza got the jacket - thank you all! In particular Neil for all, the contest guy, Thrasher, con; that a beautiful thing like this can happen. And of course Liza and Michael for having done this video. Thank you, baron.

You're looking beautiful with jacket and cap ;-)
CONGRATULATIONS-the "Hawkfamily"
