Neil Young and Crazy Horse Slated to Make a Live Return
Neil Young and Crazy Horse are slated to make a live return to the road following the band’s February 10th performance at Sir Paul McCartney’s MusiCares person of the year dinner.
The band played an overdriven and grungy version of McCartney’s “I Saw Her Standing There,” following Young’s confirmation of two new studio albums from Neil Young and Crazy Horse. In addition the band also released an epic 38 minute jam featuring the classic song “Cortez the Killer” in late January.
Young revealed that material for the first studio album, said to be called “Americana,” has already been recorded.
The critically acclaimed band formed in 1968 following the break up of Young’s previous band Buffalo Springfield. “Everybody Knows This is Nowhere,” the bands first studio album released in 1969, features some of Young’s more popular songs including “Down by the River,” “Cowgirl in the Sand,” and “Cinnamon Girl.”
Crazy Horse, made up by Danny Whitten on drums, Billy Talbot on bass, and Danny Whitten on guitar, hasn’t performed with Neil Young since 2003. Although the long awaited Buffalo Springfield tour from 2011 never developed, fans have been waiting anxiously for possible tour news.
