Neil Young Warehouse Fire

Early this morning a fire raged through a San Carlos warehouse that housed some of Neil Young's precious possessions.

According to the Chronicle, "Young kept guitars, paintings, vintage cars and cases of other memorabilia at the 10,000-square-foot warehouse. About 70 percent of the belongings have been salvaged or are salvageable." Despite that high percentage, they also reported that "The blaze caused at least $1 million in damage."

Hope there were no master tapes or unreleased songs destroyed! The music world can't afford to lose one bit of Neil's unparalleled output. No word yet on what caused the fire. [Update: the fire was evidently caused by a system error in Young's hybrid car.]
