Grandaddy Clause: Toyota

jasonlogoeAfter the dissolution of beloved sci-fi pop outfit Grandaddy in 2006, frontman Jason Lytle left behind California’s blue suburban skies for the peace, quiet and sobriety of Montana. This week, Lytle re-emerges with news of a solo debut and a part-time seasonal job as guest editor for magnetmagazine.com.

Read our new Q&A with Lytle about his forthcoming album, Yours Truly, The Commuter (Anti-), here.

And that happened to be a ’93 Toyota pickup. I’ve driven nothing but Toyotas since. They make really efficient vehicles, the ergonomics are really smart, and I like the way they pretty much gave the people what they wanted.

MAGNET would like to add that, no, Toyota did not license Grandaddy’s music for a commercial. That was Honda:
