The Deadhead Sticker inspiration

February 7, 2018

Don Henley-in an interview said... "I was driving down the San Diego freeway (The 5) and got passed by a $21,000 Cadillac Seville (pretty expensive by 1980s car prices), the status symbol of the Right-wing upper-middle-class American bourgeoisie – all the guys with the blue blazers with the crests and the grey pants – and there was this Grateful Dead 'Deadhead' bumper sticker on it!"  Nice inspiration for a love song that says he'll be in love "...long after the boy of Summer are gone"..the love that lasts longer than baseball season(!)
