Neal Cassady - LIFE STORIES
 
 
2/4/1968     Cassady, Kerouac, Kesey
On this day in 1968 Neal Cassady died, at the age of forty-one. Cassady was not only Jack Kerouac's wheelman on the trips that inspired On the Road but a direct influence on Kerouac's style. Ken Kesey and others who were friendly with, or married to, or driven by, or audience for Cassady all say that "Fastestmanalive" talked and lived as he drove -- at overwhelming rates and to uncertain places.
