Crazy Horse

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by charles21o7, Sep 15, 2004.

  1. Crazy Horse, the legendary backing band of Neil Young, has always had rockin songs. Their bassist Billy Talbot is a man who plays simple lines, yet these lines are chugged out like a freight train and stand strong among Neils rippin guitar. Any more fans of this guy. Or perhaps some better bassits Neil has worked with???
  2. I gotta nothing to say about them, but I just feel obligated to post in thread with "Crazy" in the title. :p Rock on! :bassist:

  3. I just remember the first time I watched "Rust Never Sleeps" and asking myself, "What is the deal with this guy? Is he having an episode?" :D

    Huge Crazy Horse fan.

    Neil has also worked with Tim Drummend, a excellent bassist that has done time with James Brown, and many others. Neil also took Duck Dunn out on a lot of tours in the last ten years.
    I've always loved Crazy Horse & Billy Talbot! A lot of my musical friends look down their nose at them....but they just don't understand very raw rock ;) Billy Talbot has a solo album coming out next week....should be interesting.

  5. Really, I wonder what kinda music he'll play, the usual crazy horse perhaps??

    I ordered a copy.....I'll let you know how it is. I'm pretty sure there is pedal steel on it.....might have a country kinda groove, like some of the early Crazy House albums without Neil.

    Several months ago, I learned the bass line to Young's popular Heart of Gold for a gig I sat in on.

    Initially, I wasn't thrilled at the prospect of learning what I thought was a dull line, but after listening closely several times, I liked it a lot and enjoyed performing it (I copied it pretty closely).

    Is it Talbot on Heart of Gold?

    This might be true in several ways :D

    I'm pretty sure Heart of Gold was Tim Drummend.
  10. Has anyone picked up the Greendale album, it has some cool bass stuff on it, it has a real cool tone. Like , the bass sounds like a bass drum carved in the side of a hollow oak,kinda sound , real natural sounding.
