For those of you who can’t wait, one of the first reviews of the June 2 Berlin concert that kicked off the European Alchemy Tour of Neil Young & Crazy Horse.

One article describes the Horse as: “Ancient warriors” and “Not virtuosos but instinct musicians.” Apt descriptions.

Another calls Neil “The Last Unicorn.” But we already knew this..;-)

Billy Talbot’s new album “On the Road to Spearfish”

VAPOR RECORDS ON THE ROAD TO SPEARFISHCrazy Horse member Billy Talbot said his new album “On the Road to Spearfish” out this week was inspired by the vast North American Prairie, where he and his wife Karin have restored a homestead in Spearfish, South Dakota.

“On The Road To Spearfish”

“Big Rain video”. A great album and thanks to let us listen and see to it.

In addition to the digital release of the nine-song set, a companion HD film chronicling the sessions will be available. On The Road To Spearfish follows up the Billy Talbot Band’s 2004 album Alive In The Spirit World.  With the addition of newcomer Ryan James Holzer (trombone, harmonica, autoharp, organ, acoustic guitar), the same versatile musicians join Talbot again: guitarist Matt Piucci, Erik Pearson (horns, banjo, lap steel), Mark Hanley (lap steel, mandolin, guitar), Tommy Carns (bass), and Stephan Junca (drums). Using vintage gear and an eclectic orchestra of acoustic and electric instruments, the album was recorded at Light Rail Studios in San Francisco.

Virginia in September

Neil Young, other big-name bands coming to Nelson County festival

Posted: Saturday, May 18, 2013 12:15 am

Neil Young & Crazy Horse is listed among many top-name bands coming to Central Virginia in September as part of a new four-day music festival in Nelson County. Already months into the planning process, Interlocken Music Festival is scheduled to take place at Oak Ridge Estate in Arrington from Sept. 5 to 8. Producers have said they expect a turnout in the tens of thousands.

In addition to Neil Young & Crazy Horse, producers have said some of the confirmed bands are: Furthur, made up of Phil Lesh and Bob Weir from The Grateful Dead along with five other members; Zac Brown from the Zac Brown Band; The String Cheese Incident; and The Black Crowes. Event publicist Ken Weinstein said in an email that they are planning to announce more bands Monday or Tuesday.

According to a press release for the festival, the bands will play in “unique and exciting artist pairings.”

“Interlocken’s conceptual theme will touch all elements of the event: ‘when something ends, another begins,’” the release states. “This simple yet powerful ethos of sustainability will be integrated into camping, lodging, food, drink, transport offerings as well as specialized onsite activities.”

Another part of this theme will be captured by an emphasis on quality over quantity, as there will be fewer bands that will play in continuous two-hour sets on two main stages so that the music never stops. Several of the bands will play multiple sets on different days.

While Oak Ridge Estate will serve as the site for the event

The festival will take place on Oak Ridge’s racetrack, which is the length of six football fields, according to the press release.

“We are very excited to welcome the Interlocken festival to Oak Ridge,” Oak Ridge owner Rhonda Holland stated in the press release. “Several concert promoters have approached us in the past about using the track. We have always been concerned about the impact that this would have on the surrounding community and the land. Dave and Peter have a history of caring about the communities and land where they produce events. We look forward to working with the Interlocken team for many years to come.”

“Hopefully, this will become the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival of Central Virginia,” Frey said at the meeting. “That’s our goal.”

Weinstein said all bands announced so far have been confirmed to play at the festival. Neil Young & Crazy Horse and Furthur both have listed the festival listed among their tours on their official websites.

The Black Crowes and The String Cheese Incident did not have the festival listed on their official websites.

Want to go?
When: Thursday through Sunday, Sept. 5-8

Details: Artist pre-sale tickets will go on sale starting at 10 a.m. May 22 and general early bird tickets go on sale starting at 10 a.m. May 23. They can be purchased via the festival website.

Ralph Molina Interview

Thrasher has an exclusive interview with Crazy Horse Drummer Ralph Molina:

neilyoungnews.thrasherswheat.org/2013/05/exclusive-crazy-horse-drummer-ralph

Ralph: Lordy, we’ve been playing songs like that forever. We love to jam, extend the songs.
I love when Neil has the chance to play his long, soulful solos, that’s what makes us get off!
We just stay in shape, we exercise, eat good, stopped the messing around (if you know what I mean).
I’ve been asked by younger bands, “How are we still playing? Where do we get our energy?”.
I tell them, “If you want the longevity, lose your egos and realise what you have to do, to last as long, you have to make changes”.
