NEIL YOUNG - Long May You Run(1976)
Who is Brian Spencer? you may ask, well he was a drinking Buddy. One day after work we had a few and the pub closed at three so we went back to my place for some more refreshments and to listen to some sounds. I knew that I had two and a half bottles, one of Gin and one of Whiskey, to compliment the beers we brought back.We finished the booze and I told BS he better go as my wife was returning from work. I quickly filled the empty Gin bottle with water and would replace it later as the gin was my wife's current tipple.
A couple of hours later there was a knock at the door it was BS he had gone to his car and had fallen asleep.
|Brian Spencer, Long may You Run|
A few weeks later my wife had a visit from her elderly cousin and she offered her a gin and tonic. I had forgotten to replace the in! Panic! What the hell should I do? With resignation, I decided just to let it happen. They finished the first one and a second was offered. "Oh! you will be getting me tipsy" she said, "don't make it too strong". I sat there trying to supress the a grin on my face.
I don't know how he did it but Brian Spencer had miraculously turned the water in to Gin!
Why Neil Young's 'Long may you Run'? Well for no other reason than I like the song and Brian Spencer, would you believe, was the spitting image of Neil Young.
I should have chosen a track by Placebo.
Oh! by the way the song is about Neil's first car, a 1948 Buick Roadmaster hearse.
