Subject: Double booking?

A benefit concert has just been announced for Sunday, October 21 at Seattle's Key Arena. They claim that besides Alanis Morissette, Femi Kuti and the Positive Force, and Mana, that Pearl Jam and REM will play. Of course we know that PJ and REM are supposed to be at the Bridge School Benefit Concert that same Saturday and Sunday. I really doubt they'd do one gig, hop a jet and do another that night in Seattle... Something's got to give.

Looking forward... to IRF5/BSB15

There had been some earlier predictions that this year's Bridge School Benefit Concert would be held on October 27 and 28. That prediction doesn't appear to have been on target...

I've now heard from two independent sources, pretty reliable ones, that we have been a week off in our prediction. It's much more likely (though still not 100%, of course) to be October 20/21.

If you're going to gamble on travel arrangements or such, the best gamble for now would be that weekend...

Subject: Late tour comments from Billy

Greetings from the Billy Talbot Band!

Network problems prevented this note from Billy going out yesterday, ahead of the Crazy Horse show in Austria. But better late than never...

  Wow, Europe 2001 is almost done!  So many places to play,
  so little time...  I hope we can get back here next year
  and hit some areas that we missed this year -- especially
  Eastern Europe.  That'd be cool.

  More great shows over this last leg.  Italy inspired us.
  Portugal poured over us. Spain was spectacular. Montreux
  was a monster.  (Okay, enough wordplay...)  Hasn't been
  one yet that was any kind of disappointment.

  This last show in the old Roman theater in France was
  really special, because it brought back nice memories
  of our last trip here -- as seen in the Year of the Horse
  movie. And as always, we're really looking forward to
  tonight's show here in Austria.  Expecting some rain,
  but that hasn't held us back yet.

  We've enjoyed having Pegi and Astrid pitch in on some of
  the songs lately.  I think they add a nice touch.  We're
  always ready to try out something different.

  From Portugal on, we finish up the Eurotour by playing
  each of the final seven shows in a different country.
  Somebody told me that the only big western European
  countries that we'll miss on this tour are Greece and
  Luxembourg.  Maybe next year for those...

  Let's see, we also still have a show in Japan to do after
  we finish up here.  Not sure what we'll be doing after that!
  Stay tuned...

. . . RE*AC*TOR


Frank Sampedro, Crazy Horse guitarist with Ribeiran blood
by Raquel Monge

Although everyone thinks that the guitarist of Crazy Horse, 
Frank Sampedro -- alias Poncho -- is Mexican, when he comes
to Galicia he feels like crying, and it's not because of
something in his eyes.  It's because his father is from Santa
Uxia de Ribeira, and his blue eyes and pink skin show it even
if it's not mentioned. He is not only the first of the 
Sampedro family that is not a fisherman, but his profession
allows him to spend time with Neil Young.

While resting in the hotel the morning following his concert,
he confesses that in this corner of the Atlantic he felt 
cheerful for the first time in all of the tour. He liked
the feel of the city so much that after his performance he
tried to continue experiencing it.

It was one very long night for Poncho and his group, Crazy 
Horse, but to grant an interview in the land of his father
more appealing than to stay buried in the sheets. Frank 
Sampedro, actually Manuel Francisco Sampedro, made himself
comfortable to talk about his life, after wishing a Happy 
Birthday to one of his companions on the tour.

Q: Your father is from Ribeira, and your mother from Seville.
   What do you consider yourself? 

A: Pure Spanish, although I was born in America, because my 
   parents emigrated there. 

Q: How many times have you been in Galicia before? 

A: This is the third time. 

Q: How do you feel?

A: Very well.  After visiting my father's tomb in Ribeira, I felt
   peaceful for the first time in the tour.  Everything seems so 
   easy here...  Makes me want to cry. I believe that perhaps my 
   father heard me in the Coliseum.  I liked the feel of A Coruna
   so much that I went to the Mardi Gras and wanted to keep it up,
   but there was no band there.

Q: What is it that you like about this city? 

A: I'm enchanted by the ocean and the seafood, but I remember it 
   when it had less less buildings and less people. 

Q: I imagine that your family never thought that there would be a 
   musician among the Sampedros. 

A: I am the first that is not a mariner, although until I was 16 I 
   worked for a Norwegian boat. 

Q: When did you begin to play? 

A: At eleven.

Q: When professionally?

A: At eleven. I was in a band, but still went to school. 

Q: A flamenco one? 

A: [Moves his arms like Jack Cortez] Yes, very.  I went to classes 
   and they taught me to handle the cape like a bullfigther, but I
   wanted to be horsebreaker. 

Q: What has Rock done for you? 

A: Music is the only thing that nobody can take away from me. It is
   part of my soul. I'm a slave to Rock.

Q: You rise each morning feeling like a Rock Star? 

A: No, I'm not a Rock Star, I'm a Rock Slave. 

Q: People imagine that famous musicians live a Bohemian easy life. 
   Is it really such a Shangrila?

A: We perform almost every day, and when the tour finishes I'll have
   to return to my four jobs, one of which is fixing computers.
   Gotta pay for the children and the ex-wife (wives?).

Q: What do you like to do besides play music? 

A: Take care of the cats and work in the flower garden. 

Q: What is your favorite Crazy Horse song to play? 

A: Dangerbird, because it's very touching. It speaks of crime and
   jail. Also Big Time, for our producer who died of cancer.

Subject: Larry Cragg "Interview"

Should've sent this a week ago, but the Larry cartoon reminded me... Before the Crazy Horse concert on July 4th, I was roaming the streets of Oslo, unable to accept the fact that I had to go to work. Walking through a narrow side-street, I ran into Larry Cragg!

We shook hands and spoke for about 5 mins (although he was already late for the soundcheck). I told him I had been to the Roskilde show and that some scandinavian newspapers had called it THE best concert in Roskilde's history. He hadn't heard that, and said he would tell Neil and the horse immediately.

He told me about what it feels like to go on stage and play with Crazy Horse, without me even asking about it... : ) I remember him telling it something like this:

Larry: "I'm standing on the side of the stage, just watching these guys play and make all this amazing, f!#@n' noise through four songs, and then I get to go on stage with them! I play piano on one of the new songs..."

Me: "The one called Going Home?"

Larry: "Aaawww... I don't know what it's called."

Me: (to myself) "I do." : )

Then I told him that I agreed with the reviewers that the Roskilde show was absolutely stunning, my greatest concert experience ever.

Larry was really humble and thanked me. I said it was an honour to talk to him, and I hated myself for not bringing a camera. He said he'd say hello to Neil from me (!) and bring him the great message about the show reviews.

He had to run, but shook my hand firmly and wanted to know my name. I said I'd be in the front row, dead center. He recognized me at the concert and waved to me. What a nice man!!! The concert was AMAZING, and having excellent tickets, I was able to catch Ralph's drum stick. He'd used it for the first half of the concert, but the inscription was still perfect. It simply said Ralph Molina, Neil Young & Crazy Horse.

What a day! Peace, Ken

Subject: More tour comments from Billy

Greetings from the Billy Talbot Band!

Here's another dispatch from Billy, ready for Crazy Horse's performance in Hamburg today...


       It's hard to believe we're past the halfway mark on the
       European Tour. We've been having such a great time
       we wish it could go on and on. The last few days in
       Scandinavia have been a real treat. It was fun breaking
       out Down By The River in Helsinki. And playing in that
       big ball in Stockholm was cool. 
       It's also nice to be back in Germany for a couple more
       shows. The earlier ones all went really well. The Berlin
       show in the woods was really nice, especially with that
       huge crowd. And we're looking forward to tonight's
       show in the park here in Hamburg. 
       Actually I hate to leave out any of the places we've
       played, because we've really not had a bad night yet.
       Rotterdam was great, regardless of what that one critic
       there wrote. We had a lot of fun in Paris. It was nice to
       return to the Roskilde Festival again, glad there weren't
       any problems there this year. Hmm, did I leave anyplace
       out? Oh yeah, Flanders -- hey, that was great too! 
       I guess lately we've broken out a few more of our
       standards. Expect a few more as the tour moves along.
       Maybe something new? Tomorrow we'll be breaking out
       the "deluxe version" of Crazy Horse, when Pegi and
       Astrid will add their touch to some of the songs. 
       We're really happy about the feedback we've been
       getting throughout this tour. It seems like the common
       thread is how well we're doing as A BAND. I totally agree
       with that -- we're meshing as well as or better than we
       ever have. Everybody is completely tuned in to
       everyone else. I love it! 
       Gotta head out for the show. Hope to see some of you
       down front!

     The tour has been going great and we're having a blast.
     The shows in England and Scotland and Ireland have all
     been sold out, and the audiences have been great.
     We're really enjoying ourselves. 

     There has been some talk about problems in Glasgow,
     but let me assure everyone that was a great show.
     Nobody's mad at anybody or anything like that. We
     loved that show. 

     The names for the new songs that have been going
     around are probably correct -- Going Home, Gateway of
     Love, Hold You In My Arms and Standing In The Light
     Of Love. But you never know for sure until they make it
     onto an album. Don't count on those songs staying the
     same as they've been played so far, we're still working
     on them. And it's a pretty safe bet that there'll be
     more new ones coming along during the rest of the tour. 

     Looking forward to the shows across the channel. Hope
     a lot of you can make it to one of them and see how
     much fun we're having.

Tickets are NOT NUMBERED - it's every person for her/himself, which is cool if you want to get close to the stage. It also looks unlikely that tickets can be bought on-line - a bit frustrating.

Greetings from the Billy Talbot Band!

It's been a couple of months since we last wrote, and over that time Billy's been very busy rehearsing, performing and recording with Crazy Horse.

Back in March, Crazy Horse joined the Dave Matthews Band for a benefit concert in Charlottesville, Virginia. The concert, which filled Scott Stadium on the University of Virginia campus, raised over $800,000 for Dave's BamaWorks Foundation.

And now, after months of rehearsals and recording, Billy and the rest of Crazy Horse will be heading over to Europe for their first tour there in 5 years. The Horse will make 28 stops throughout Europe in June and July, and are scheduled to play in Japan afterward, at the end of July.

On the eve of the tour, Billy passes on the word that Crazy Horse fans can definitely expect some new songs at the upcoming shows. Stay tuned for more feedback from Billy during the tour.

I told her that there would even be some Rusties from the US and Canada at the show - she said she would be interested in doing an article on the phenomenon, as she had assumed most interest would be generated towards Beck.

I have this info from the V2 Records site: The Black Crowes will be supporting AC-DC on July 1st in Hamburg, so they wont be opening for Neil in Helsinki. Too bad...

Subject: Another show in France!

I've been on the phone with the Programmation Bureau of Vienne (France) for 3 weeks (3 times a week -- maybe they think i'm crazy...). I've figured out little by little that Neil might appear in Vienne, but was not sure ...

But last Sunday, Jacques Launay mailed me to say "it isn't yet finalized for July 17"... So I was still not totaly sure what was going to happen. Then today (great day!) I phoned again to Mister Vincent Rival who works for Jacques Launay, and Vincent told me that it is sure that Neil Young will be in Vienne on July 17.

I hope we can have more info soon and more details of course.

Subject: Live From London?

BBC Radio 2 has been trailing an advert all day saying that the Fleadh will be on live. Fingers crossed that this will include Neil's set, though I doubt it!

Anyone think Neil's going to show up and play Cortez again with Dave Mathews this weekend at Pac Bell Park? I'd give it a 50-50 chance.
