Billy Talbot Interview in Rolling Stone

Billy TalbotQ&A: Crazy Horse Bassist Billy Talbot on Neil Young, New Solo Album

‘There’s a certain tactic to being in a rock & roll band’

By Andy Greene, July 23, 2013 12:25 PM ET

Talbot has spent the last year touring the world with Young and Crazy Horse, but he took some time off to chat with us about his long history with Neil Young, recording some of their most beloved works and his new solo LP On the Road to Spearfish.

Where are you calling from?

I’m in South Dakota. The prairie is all around me. Everywhere I look, it’s grass.

Sounds nice. Do you think you’re one of the few rock stars that live in South Dakota?

[Laughs] I don’t think of myself as a rock star, but I guess you could say that. I don’t know of any others that are hanging out around this way.

Let’s move on to “Cortez the Killer.

I just recently listened to the recording for the first time in 20 years. I thought it was a really good recording. It’s one of our best and our most beloved songs to record. The moment that we start to play that song is always a great moment in the show. Lately, it’s been a little mystery to us, which is puzzling. It’s never been that before. After eight years of not playing it, the song is like, “You didn’t play me for eight years, and now you want me to be right there for you?” When we call it up, cosmically, it’s just not happening.
