Neil Young’s Crazy Horse bassist Billy Talbot suffers stroke: Musician will not play during band’s European tour
Talbot, a founding member of the band, is forced to pull out of the group’s forthcoming gigs
Neil Young’s long-term Crazy Horse bassist Billy Talbot has suffered a mild stroke, forcing him to pull out of the band’s European tour.
“Talbot's doctors expect him to make a full recovery,” the group said in a statement.
“They have advised Talbot to sit this tour out and recover his strength.”
He will not play during the band’s forthcoming Barclaycard British Summer Time headlining show at Hyde Park on 12 July. Young’s bassist, Rick Rosas, will serve as his replacement.
Talbot is a founding member of Crazy Horse and hasn’t missed a single gig since the band’s inception in 1968. The 70-year-old first met Young after a Buffalo Springfield show.
Neil Young & Crazy Horse will also play in Liverpool on 13 July, before cities including Vienna, Tel Aviv, Dresden and Stockholm.
