Musicians
    (1962- )
    Born in Columbus, Georgia
    Previously known as Danny & the Memories and The Rockets
    Current Members:
    Frank Sampedro (February 25, 1949- ), guitar
    Billy Talbot, bass guitar
    Ralph Molina, drums
    Notable ex-members:
    Danny Whitten (May 8, 1943-November 18, 1972), guitar and vocals
    Nils Lofgren (June 21, 1951- ), guitar
    Jack Nitzsche (April 22, 1937-August 25, 2000), keyboards
    Recorded the albums 'Crazy Horse' (1971), 'Loose' (1972), 'At Crooked Lake' (1972), 'Crazy Moon' (1978) and 'Left for Dead' (1989)
    Credited on the Neil Young albums 'Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere' (1969), 'Zuma' (1975), 'Rust Never Sleeps' (1979), 'Re-ac-tor' (1981), 'Life' (1987), 'Ragged Glory' (1990), 'Sleeps with Angels' (1994), 'Broken Arrow' (1996), 'Year of the Horse' (1997) and 'Greendale' (2003)
    They recorded three albums in two years, then recorded only two albums in the next three decades.
    The band fired Whitten when drug use made him too erratic.
    Young gave Whitten a plane ticket to Los Angeles and $50 bucks to get himself some help.
    Instead, Whitten spent all $50 on heroin and fatally overdosed.
    They morphed from a doo-wop group to a progenitor of the grunge sound.
    Their song 'I Don't Want to Talk About It' became a standard, covered by Rod Stewart and others.
    Whitten's death inspired Young's songs 'The Needle and the Damage Done' and 'Tonight's the Night.'
    Young said, 'I always wince when I hear Neil Young and Crazy Horse, because it's really Crazy Horse. I know it's Crazy Horse.'
