In 1969, Neil Young joined forces with Los Angeles based psychedelic-rock sextet The Rockets (later known as Crazy Horse) and wrote a rock album which gave birth to a signature, lo-fi seventies sound. The album, Everyone Knows This Is Nowhere, which included songs like the anthemic "Down By the River" and "Cowgirl In the Sand," a hypnotic 10-minute ode to tantalization, remains one of the most influential rock albums of all time.
Neil Young and Crazy Horse went on to release 11 studio albums in addition to a library of live recorded albums over 5 decades. Today’s rock & roll may never live up to that of the 60’s or 70’s. That being said, the spirit of Crazy Horse can still be experienced thanks to Dayton’s own Road Eyes.
Voted “3rd Best Neil Young/Crazy Horse Tribute Band In The World” and proud of it, the band delivers fans into another era of rock & roll. Andy Gabbard, lead singer/guitar of Road Eyes (and of Cincinnati's Buffalo Killer), takes on the role of Young and does it well. Everything from Gabbard’s voice to guitar, even his demeanor, fools fans into thinking they’re live with Neil Young and Crazy Horse. Road Eyes isn’t merely an imitation act, they are much more than that. They use the music as an expression of their own while paying homage to the band they cover.
