Neil Young Gives Crazy Horse A California Workout

in News

Neil Young gave his old band Crazy Horse a three-night workout in Fresno, California this week.

Young included one-time member Nils Lofgren, now of the E Street Band, in the 2018 line-up. Lofgren played on Young’s ‘After The Goldrush’ and ‘Tonight’s The Night’ albums in the ‘70s, as well as ‘Trans’ in 1982.

Original Crazy Horse members Billy Talbot (bass) and Ralph Molina (drums) rounded out the group. Guitarist Frank ‘Poncho’ Sampedro, who now lives in Hawaii, did not rejoin the band for these shows. It was his first time out of live Crazy Horse shows since he joined the band in 1975.

Young promoted the shows directly to fans as NYCH.
