Crazy Horse bassist Billy Talbot has been forced to pull out of Neil Young's upcoming European tour after suffering a mild stroke.

Talbot's doctors expect the rocker to make a full recovery, but they have advised Talbot to exit the tour and recover at home.

Crazy Horse will be joined by Rick Rosas, who has played with Young extensively throughout the years, when the European dates kick off in Reykjavik, Iceland on 7 July (14).

Young will also have the support of backing vocalists Dorene Carter and YaDonna West from the group Mahogany Blue.
