Neil Young News

A footnote to Long May You Run and the tour's infamous conclusion.

The Stills-Young tour in 1976 ended rather suddenly after a concert in Columbia, South Carolina at USC on July 20, 1976. Stephen Stills continued onto Atlanta for the next concert while Neil went another direction in his bus.

Stills received a telegram which said:

Stills continued on with the tour but it did considerable damage to his friendship with Neil.

Another footnote on the song "Long May You Run" is that Neil Young wrote it about his first car, a 1948 Buick Roadmaster hearse. Apparently, the old hearse broke down in Blind River, Canada in 1962. on a roadtrip from Winnipeg to Toronto.
