A lengthy interview with Crazy Horse Bassist Billy Talbot in Rolling Stone by Andy Greene.
Here's just one interesting comment that says a lot about the whole Neil deal...
Q: It would be so easy to play two hours of hits and then one or two new songs. That's what most other bands do in your position.More of Billy Talbot interview in Rolling Stone.
Billy Talbot: When we were in Australia, we were in the same hotel with Kiss. We heard that one of them said, "I have the best gig in the world. I've been playing the same 17 songs for 35 years." We heard that and it didn't sit right with us.
Our job isn't easy. It's not meant to be easy. Our job is to keep the edge, be out on the edge, always seeing, exploring the limits of what we do and who we are, never letting up. Spiritually and cosmically, not to sound all hippified, but we don't sound good unless we're really connected and on the edge of everything.
