Heikki's Suburbia Bus Tour (3:22)

Cover of Coming From Reality

From Coming From Reality and 1 other release

This is what Eva Rodriguez (Rodriguez’s daughter) said about this song:

“Rodriguez had a very good friend named Heikki. I remember a large man with long blond/brown hair. He had a very nice home, a wife named Linda and two huge bull mastiff dogs. Despite stereotypes, Heikki was a mathematician from “Estonia” (Estonia is a republic in North-Eastern Europe, near Finland) who rode a classic motorcycle. Anyway, someone had made fun of Rodriguez’s friend. Protective of Heikki’s feelings, Rodriguez organized what I consider to be a peaceful form of retaliation. A bus was chartered, full of hippies, four gallons of wine, etc. The group went to Grosse Point, Michigan and surrounding areas where they visited suburbian malls and neighborhoods on a tour of their own. The rest, is in the music. The story made the newspapers in Detroit and also reached Florida (a southern U.S. state).”

Heikki is a Finnish name though, so Heikki probably moved from Finland to Estonia, or his parents were Finnish. This isn’t confirmed.

    Heiki is an Estonian name too and a variation of Heikki doesn't necessarily mean he was Finnish. Although Kansa is definitely more of a Finnish surname. It's only known that Heikki Kansa was born in Viljandi, Estonia.
