Automobile magazine reports that Nissan is introducing a new minivan to the Japanese market:

Chances are when Deep Purple wrote the song “Highway Star” back in 1971, the “driving power” they sang about wasn’t a family-friendly minivan. Nevertheless, Nissan’s used the same title on its latest minivan, the Lafesta Highway Star — which, for all intents and purposes, is simply a Mazda5.

    Well, I’ll be taking the 9 hour trek up to Highland Park, IL. tomorrow to see my Heroes. Just got back for St. Louis, Mo. at the BCC show at the Pageant Theater. I gotta state Right Here, Right Now….They totally rocked the house. Fantastic performances by 3 of the 4. Can’t state anything positive about the Keys. Seems to be there as a fixture and filler more than anything. Truly contributed minimal and shows to be the outsider. Jason Bonham totally played his Ass Off as did Joe and Glenn. These three absolutely are a force to be reckoned with and from this casual observer, I’d dump the Keys baggage and just go full throttle with the 3 piece. What an amazing show. They played 4 songs from the New Album and finished with a full boar version of BURN.


    Now looking forward to the Purple Gig. If it’s half as good as BCC, I’ll be thrilled….
