More on AUCTION: Neil Young Collectibles on December 9, 2017 and Neil Young Auctioning His Model Train Collection.

Also, see What I Learned While Staring at Neil Young’s Flannel Shirts by By Amanda Petrusich:
As we circled the gallery, Nolan told me that they were receiving registrations for the auction from unusual places, rural places—“not New York City, but upstate New York.” Young was precise and exacting about the train descriptions in the auction catalogue, in part because he knew that specialty collectors who had little to no interest in his musical career would want to bid for those. “He wanted to make sure we were getting it right,” Nolan said. “He didn’t worry at all about the guitars and the equipment. But he said, ‘I want to be involved with the trains. Collectors of trains are fanatical, and they’ll want the right information.’ ”

...

While I stared intently at it, Nolan described the process of curating the auction as both collaborative and cathartic for Young. “This was hard for him,” he said. “It was hard letting go—especially of the trains. He didn’t really have a hard time with the equipment or the guitars, but the trains were hard. He’s had many back-and-forths, emotional ups and downs.” And such is the purest validation of the metaphysical worth of stuff—decluttering is virtuous, sure, but ridding ourselves of material histories can feel like dismantling our own skeletons, bone by bone. It makes it easier for us to disappear from the world.

From Julien's Auctions:
Julien’s Auctions has announced that PROPERTY FROM THE COLLECTION OF NEIL YOUNG will close the world-record breaking auction house’s 2017 season on December 9, 2017.

Property from the two time inducted Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legend will be presented in a single owner sale, and include his extraordinary personal collection of model trains, classic cars, guitars, recording gear, clothing, memorabilia and more. Over 200 items from Young’s vast Lionel train collection will be presented, featuring dozens of rare and unique items such as prototypes for Lionel production locomotives and rolling stock, many of them from the fabled Lionel archives. Highlights include the Lionel Hudson Factory Prototype locomotive (estimate: $4,000-$9,000), the Lionel Western Pacific "1954" Blue Feather Boxcar Factory Prototype (estimate: $3,000-$6,000); the Lionel Santa Fe "Clear Shell" F-3 locomotive (estimate: $2,000-$5,000) and the H.O.A.R.D. Tour Psychedelic Vanderbilt Hudson locomotive (estimate: $3,000-$6,000) that ran in a layout Young brought to the Horizons of Rock Developing Everywhere Tour.

Neil Young’s classic cars, that served as muses many of his songs are featured including a 1954 Cadillac Fleetwood Imperial 8-Passenger Limousine (estimate: $30,000-$40,000) with the Cadillac crest styled "Broken Arrow" emblem found on the rear passenger door that harkens back to Buffalo Springfield's 1967 song and ranch of the same name in Portalo Valley, California; a 1948 Buick Roadmaster Hearse built by Flxible (estimate: $8,000-$10,000) used by Young and his band, The Squires, to haul their equipment to gigs in the early 1960's, decorated with backstage passes and bumper stickers and served as the theme of Young's song, "Long May You Run;" a 1953 Buick Roadmaster code 76X Skylark Convertible Buick's 50th anniversary special edition, (total production 1,690) with a steering wheel hub that denotes "customized for Neil Young" (estimate: $100,000-$130,000) and a 1941 Chrysler Series 28 Windsor Highlander 2-Door 3-Person Coupe (estimate: $15,000-$20,000), considered the most prestigious model Chrysler had to offer.

Studio gear, recording equipment and instruments featured include two Studer A800 Mark III Master recorders known as 'The Twins' and used together in Young's studio (estimate: $10,000-$12,000); four Marshall Full Stack Amplifiers (estimates ranging from $2,000-$3,500); a 1935 Martin F-7 acoustic guitar (estimate: $4,000-$4,500); a 1965 Gibson ES-345 left handed electric guitar, with a Varitone, original tailpiece, original pickguard, a strap and a handwritten chord chart (estimate: $3,500-$5,000); a 1999 Gretsch White Falcon SS (estimate: $2,000-$2,500) sixteen Universal Audio 610 preamp console modules (estimate: $9,000-$12,000) and a hurdy gurdy used on Young's song "Red Sun" from his album Silver and Gold (estimate: $200-$400). Young's clothing worn on stage and at events will also make an appearance including an Abercrombie & Fitch red and blue plaid flannel shirt worn in a performance with Paul McCartney at a benefit concert for the Bridge School (estimate: $300-$500); a tan and cream striped seersucker J.

" Ordinary People " ..... Eh ?
Ordinary rock stars selling to Ordinary millionaire bidders....

The " Everyday People " ..... the ordinary people ..... the working class people that buy the music and go to the shows ....

The Earth T-shirt people ..... the shameful people .

If folks wonder why a deep soulful guy like Neil Young writes political songs that sound like second-hand generalizations that come nowhere near the intended mark . . .
