My first reaction to the recent interview with Crazy Horse guitarist Frank “Poncho” Sampredo on the Rolling Stone website: it’s awesome that he wants to revive a song from the “experimental” years:
Q: You play on Trans. What are your memories of that project?
A: Well, that was a record where we did a lot of recording, and then Neil became involved with a program for his son Ben. He had to do a lot of physical activity with different nurses and helpers. He kind of got lost in time and couldn’t have us there all the time. He ended up getting a synclavier and going back and overdubbing a lot of those tracks. A lot of times we weren’t there for all that crazy stuff that went on. We came back up and listened to it and were like, “Wow, what did you do?” [Laughs]
Q: Did you like it?
A: I liked that record. I was talking about doing “We R in Control.” It would be fun trying to do that song now. I think we could play it really good.
My second reaction: wait, no really, that would be awesome:
