Neil Young and Crazy Horse back on stage for unrehearsed show - VIDEO, SETLIST
As already announced, on May 1st Neil Young and Crazy Horse reunited for their first show since 2014.
The gig took place in Fresno, at California’s Warnors Theatre; it was completely unrehearsed and the first of a three-night stint. According to the Canadian rocker this “will be the beginning of another beautiful chapter” in the band’s nearly 50 year history.
In this latest incarnation of the band there are drummer Ralph Molina, guitarist/E Street Band member Nils Lofgren, and bassist Billy Talbot, who is back for the first time since suffering a stroke four years ago. All three musicians were also part of the Santa Monica Flyers, whom Young assembled for his 1975 album "Tonight’s the Night".
Frank “Poncho” Sampedro, Crazy Horse’s longest tenured guitarist, was absent from the reunion for undisclosed reasons.
