A few have ridden, more have seen and every real and in-spirit hippie alive remembers Ken Kesey's magic bus, that '39 International Harvester heap of hand-painted psychedelia. Outfitted for trips both on-the-road and of-the-mind, Kesey and his Merry Pranksters set out cross-country in 1964 for points FURTHUR, introducing culture shock to the young and willing. Piloted by Beat voice Neal Cassaday, this symbol of an era gained fame in the lyrics of The Grateful Dead's "The Other One"; "The bus came by and I got on." The original bus lies rotting in an Oregon dale, although there are plans afoot but not yet in effect to resurrect it, and the second was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997. Kesey died in 2001, God rest his Merry [Prankster] soul.
