A must read interview with Poncho from Rolling Stone by Andy Greene.
Frank "Poncho" Sampedro discusses a multitude of topics including hoping for a "proper" Crazy Horse farewell tour, his 2013 hand injury and Billy Talbot's health.
The group's future plans are unclear, and Poncho says that Crazy Horse almost certainly won't appear at Farm Aid on September 13th in Raleigh, North Carolina. "It's just a huge expense to bring Crazy Horse there," says Poncho. "Neil did tell me that he loves this band, he loves playing with us and he wants to do it as much as he can. He didn't talk about any sort of timeframe, and I'm sure he loves playing with CSNY, too."More on Neil Young Guitarist Poncho Sampedro Wants a Crazy Horse Farewell Tour | Rolling Stone.
On the plane back to America, Poncho did approach Young with his take on what the future should hold. "I said to him, we should get together in the spring, record another Crazy Horse album and do a farewell tour next year,'" says Poncho. "Elliot was saying, 'Great idea!' But Neil's a poker player. He didn't really say anything. He's always thinking about what he's doing today and tomorrow, and right now he has acoustic shows, Pono and he's working on a fiction novel."
