The Real Story Behind our song “Rollin’ On”

Posted in Great Roads, Music, Our Riding Culture, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on July 14, 2010 by The MeanStreet Riders

In memory of Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda’s ride long ago while filming“Easy Rider” the film that introduced the world to the riding culture we introduce the ballad “Rolling On”.
The song which is also available from our new ITunes Store owes it’s haunting string sound to legendary performer Sam Bush and captures the… souls of the American Indians that existed long ago along the Route 66 route and in the Taos, NM area where Dennis once lived. Many of the lost Americana towns they went through while filming the movie are now gone but not forgotten. The song also captures the realization of how complicated life has become in this confusing world and how riding can clear the mind and cleanse the soul even today.

In the spirit of the open road and the adventure and freedom it brings we roll out the album’s title track “High on the Hog.” The song was written about the deep rooted friendships and the unique comaraderie found in the riding community that seems to transcend countries, borders, and languages.The songs attitude” I don’t need no Cadillac to make me feel on top” also reflects on how NOT to follow along with the media’s constant message about how they think you should look, dress and what job you should have…. but instead rejecting their programming and finding your own way through life on your own terms and rolling through life with that same great feeling you get when riding free on the open road with great friends, good times and living your life” “High on the Hog”

Billy and Captain America Taming the West

The MeanStreet Riders wanted to share the route that Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda rode in the 1969 movie “Easy Rider”.  Fellow rider Alan Dunn aka as Mr. Zip 66 has taken years of research with details and even found the original “ No Vacancy” sign from the movie. Alan’s Route 66 blog on the mother road is an incredible journey back to a time when Captain America and Billy were hitting the culturally diverse highway and headlining. The more things change the more they remain the same.You will not be forgotten Dennis.
