    Billy Talbot of Neil Young and Crazy Horse Has Mild Stroke - He can't make the band's tour

    We have bad news and good news for Neil Young & Crazy Horse fans. Bassist Billy Talbot has suffered a mild stroke and therefore will not be able to join Crazy Horse on their upcoming European tour.

    That is the bad news.

    Talbot's doctors expect him to make a full recovery, which is good news. However, the docs have advised Talbot to sit this tour out and recover his strength.

    We totally understand and respect that decision.

    Crazy Horse will be joined on tour by Rick Rosas, who has played with Young extensively throughout the years, including in Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

    The Crazy Horse lineup will also be enhanced by backing vocalists, Dorene Carter and Donna West, best known for their memorable work with their own group Mahogany Blue.
