Neil Young is 65 years young today. So Happy Birthday Neil!!!

2010 has been the best and worst of times for Neil.

So let us just be thankful for all the goodness that has happened this year:

So we'll just say that it gives us strength to see the strength of Neil & Pegi, given their challenges and heartbreaks in 2010.

and let us hope that with courage and perseverance, comes the vista & the muse...
peace & love,
thrasher & thrashette

Happy birthday to Neil Young, who is 65 today. Without him, music as we know it would not be even remotely the same. Cheers!

Gonna leave the pain behind
Gonna leave the fools in line
Gonna take the magic potion
Gettin' in an old Lincoln
Gonna take a ride so far
To the land of sun tan lotion
Gonna take it state by state
Til I hit the golden gate
Get my feet wet in the ocean

I'm still living
in the dream we had,
For me it's not over...

Happy 65th Neil.
I know it will be hard to do, but this is the year Linc-Volt will be fixed to be even better!

Shining you a light!

Happy birthday to Neil Young, my favorite songwriter of all time, whose beautiful songs helped me through heartbreak and loss, and who continues to be a huge inspiration, not only creatively, but in pretty much every aspect of life.

Long may you run!

We salute and thank you for living all of those 65 years to the full, may you never stop what you love doing the best, producing and creating "Le Noise" for all the world to enjoy.

We're so very glad, grateful & fortunate for the countless ways your soul & your music has affected & touched us. The recorded music, the pictures, the written words are but one side of the miraculous affect you Neil have had on us. The other side is the wondrous inexplicably transcendent experience that is to experience you Neil live in concert. All we devotees now living are so grateful to share this time on earth with you. As our lifetimes are finite, your impact Neil will endure & live forever! Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday, Neil. 65 wow and still the best rocker out there. You are now entitled to a free bus pass in the UK so get yourself over here again and bring Buffalo Springfield......You didn't make it to Liverpool when you were 64 so come on over. LONG MAY YOU RUN!

Singing words, words

Have a good one ole Neil!

Happy Birthday Neiler! May you have many, many, many more. Age is truly just a number and you are a prime example of this fact. You are younger now than you've ever been, younger than some 20-somethings I know. Keep chasing the spirits, following the muse, and reaching the source. Your music touches us in deep, emotional & primal ways. Words can never express the admiration and thanks I have.
We all need you now more than ever! Never stop!
