Huey Lewis Fan Visits Every City From 'The Heart of Rock & Roll'

(Radio.com) Los Angeles-based filmmaker Michael Feld has taken Huey Lewis & The News fandom to an extreme level. Feld shot a video for the band's 1984 hit single "The Heart of Rock & Roll" traveling to all 14 cities listed in the song.

In the video on his Vimeo site, Feld sings along with the classic hit on location in New York City, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Oklahoma City, Seattle, San Francisco and more. He was inspired to travel the country after a night of karaoke.
In the description for the unique clip, Feld writes: 10,484 miles on 11 planes. 636 miles on 4 trains. 962 miles in 5 rental cars. All in the name of Huey Lewis & the News.

I really love Huey Lewis and the News. Last summer, while out doing karaoke (and singing Huey of course) I started thinking how great it would be to visit all the cities listed in the song. Why those places? What connected them to Huey Lewis? What rock & roll magic could be found in those disparate places?

So I set out on a journey to make a music video where I'd travel to all 14 cities listed in the song, not only as a tribute to Huey Lewis but to prove that the heart of rock & roll is indeed still alive and beating. And after completing my journey, I can tell you first hand that Huey Lewis' message still rings true, 31 years after the song's release." Read more and see the video here.
