Years of the Horse - Tales of the 3rd Best Garage Band in the World
Bill Graham once called Crazy Horse "the 3rd Best Garage Band in the World".
That was back in the 80's and it's unclear whether that rank has gone up or down since then. Irregardless, it hardly matters to Neil Young and Crazy Horse where they rate.
Jack Nitzsche , Neil Young's producer/arranger on the masterpiece "Broken Arrow", has stated that Crazy Horse was the American equivalent of The Rolling Stones. IMHO, Crazy Horse is to Neil Young what The Band was to Bob Dylan. As perfect a complement as tequila and salt.
