Neil Young & Crazy Horse Returning To North America
Neil Young & Crazy Horse is set for a handful of North American shows starting in late-August. Young will be busy all summer taking in a 17-date European trek, which will hit Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, France, Italy, Norway, Denmark, Belgium, and England. On August 31st, Young and the band kick things off on this side of the Atlantic with a show in Dudas, Ontario at the Greenbelt Harvest Picnic at the Christie Lake Conservation Area.
 
Neil Young told us that over the course of his career, he's happy to have a diverse community of musicians that he can pick and choose from to help serve his music on a project-by-project basis: "Generally, if I'm writing some real rock n' roll songs and some real basic, primitive rock and roll songs, usually I'll go to Crazy Horse. And if I'm writing more complicated songs or things that are, are more complex or, y'know, where the rhythm patterns are different and they require a little more refinement, then I'll go somewhere else."
 
Crazy Horse guitarist Frank "Poncho" Sampedro says that despite Young's constant need to shake things up by playing with different musicians, he seems to consider the band his musical home: "When you look at it, there is only one band that Neil continues to play with. He's played with a lot of different bands, but I'd have to say that we are, overall, the most consistent of all the bands he's played with -- even though he's played with Crosby, Stills & Nash quite a bit, but I think he's even played with us more than them."
