Neil Young on Billy Talbot
From a Guitar Player interview
, March '92: Billy Talbot is a massive bass player who only plays two or three notes. People are still trying to figure out whether it's because he only knows two or three notes or whether those are the only notes he wants to play. [Laughs.] But when he hits a note, that note speaks for itself. It's a big mother****in' note. Even the soft one is big.
Just for the record, I love Talbot's bass playing.

Ha! There's hope for me yet... :D

I've always liked Billy's bass playing....simple and in the pocket.

Thanks, that was a fun read!
I once heard his playing described as "roar in the right key".

You'd think if Neil felt that way about his playing, he'd quit trying to replace him and the rest of Crazy Horse. Now I love Rick The Bass Player, but I totally think Neil's best work was with Crazy Horse, and he ought to quit fighting it and just go with it.

Totally agree. Sometimes Neil's short attention span works against him.

Talbot had a huge, huge influence on me picking up a bass instead of a guitar. My dad played Cinnamon Girl like crazy even in the late 80's and early 90's...and took me to see Young with Dinosaur Jr around 94 or 95...this makes me realize I should probably put my dad on my profile's list of influences.
