In Memory of LincVolt: We Need "Johnny Magic" Now More Than Ever
After this week's fire that has heavily damaged LincVolt, this video honoring her mechanic "Johnny Magic" seems appropo.
Here's the first version, which was shot entirely in Neil Young's heavy metal hybrid Lincvolt. (Sorry about commercial pre-roll 2X).
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.
Don't you just love the riffing air guitar @ 2:00 mark.
Also, don't miss Neil's words at fade out...
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.)
More LincVolt memories from better days.
