Squires memorabilia – backstage auctions

Here is a music memorabilia website called Backstage Auctions (www.backstageauctions.com) and they currently have a ‘Rock & Pop’ auction going on that contains over 700 lots, including five that are dedicated to Neil Young. What makes four of the five lots newsworthy is that they are consigned by the family of Bob Clark; the drummer of The Squires between 1964 and 1965. Included is an original drum head, postcards written from the road, as well as several fantastic photos, showing Neil Young in his truly early days.

Chris Hadfield is the guy that chatted also with Neil about LincVolt.

“Chris Hadfield ‏@Cmdr_Hadfield 30 Apr
Talked with Neil Young tonight, he in his hybrid 1959 Lincoln, me in a spaceship. Discussed Earth ecology & writing music. A heart of gold.

Chris Hadfield ‏@Cmdr_Hadfield 30 Apr
Good morning, Earth! Yesterday was surreal – a spacewalker on the new $5 & a little guitar w/Neil Young. Time to focus & get back to work! ”

He’s about to return to Earth.

Moon, Halfmoon, Venus, Jupiter

over the skies at the Rhinian-Neil-Young-center, Castle Huelchrath:

Moon-Venus-Jupiter

You can even see the Earth’s shadow on the moon. On top is Venus, the more brilliant planet. Next to the moon is Jupiter, the gas giant, our solar system vacuum cleaner.

THE OLD HOMESTEAD

(Hawks and Doves)

Up and down the old homestead
The naked rider gallops through his head
And although the moon isn’t full
He still feels the pull.

Out on the floor where the cowboys dance
Approaching slowly at a glance
Here comes the shadow of his stance
The reins are fallin’ from his hands.

Why do you ride that crazy horse?
Inquires the shadow with little remorse
Just then a priest comes down the stairs
With a sack of dreams and old nightmares.

Thanks to Grandpa.
