Ralph & Billy - 2017


Ralph Molina and Billy Talbot - 2017
Photo by Ellen Goffin
(Click photo to enlarge)

A nice photo of Crazy Horse's Ralph Molina and Billy Talbot.

The photo is by Ellen Goffin and taken sometime recently. The occasion -- according to Facebook -- is that Michael Hamilton, songwriter/guitarist, is having Ralph & Billy in his studio in L.A. working on material. (Thanks Paul D.!)

Nice to see the guys hanging out and smiling.

And good to see Billy coming along after a stroke back in 2014.

Also, from back in 2013, an interview with Crazy Horse Drummer Ralph Molina.

Hmmm..."Michael Hamilton" sounds like a pseudonym...The Buffalo Springfield appeared on an episdoe of "Mannix", starring MIKE Conners...."Hamilton" is a city in Ontario, about 40 miles from Toronto...

I think they played with Mike 'Tone' Hamilton on Ian McNabb's Head Like a Rock album in 1994, which was nominated for the UK Mercury Music Prize.

The smiles on their faces tells me that this meeting is purely wonderful!
Ralphy & Billy without Poncho "Eddie" and dare we say Punch Imlach....?
Eddie "The Entertainer" Shack goes everywhere Punch Imlach goes....!
Could "Mike Hamilton" be lost on the QEW with "The Arkansas Girls"?
The Reunion is on!!!!! Saddle up the Palomino!
Crazy Horse rides again!!!!
Long Live The Horse!

Billy performed not too long ago in Spearfish, SD. Aired on South Dakota Public TV in June (it's still on our DVR).

A photo just went up on Ian McNabb's Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/merseybeast) of a video shoot for his single 'You Must Be Prepared to Dream' in 1984, featuring Ralph, Billy and the mysterious Mike Hamilton.
