Frank 'Poncho' Sampedro says 'my gut tells me this is really the last tour'
According to Crazy Horse guitar player Frank ‘Poncho’ Sampedro, Neil Young‘s current tour may be his last.
Sampedro, who started playing in Young’s backing band in 1975 has said: “My gut tells me this is really the last tour.”
Speaking to Rolling Stone, he added: “I love playing and we’re playing as good as we ever did, but at any time something could go down with any one of us.”
He continued: “It takes a lot of energy to play that much.” He also said that Young’s “wrist bugs him, and he has to tape it when he plays… I already had an operation on my thumb… It just seems at some point something is going to break.”
Neil Young & Crazy Horse released two albums last year, ‘Americana’ and ‘Psychedelic Pill’, and began their current world tour in North America. They will visit the UK this summer.
Neil Young & Crazy Horse will play:
Newcastle Metro Radio Arena (June 10)
Birmingham LG Arena (11)
Glasgow SECC (13)
London O2 Arena (17)
Liverpool Echo Arena (August 18)
London O2 Arena (19)
