Crazy Horse drummer and vocalist Ralph Molina is set to release his first solo album, entitled “Love and Inspiration”. Named as one of the “100 Greatest Drummers of All Time” by Rolling Stone magazine, he is best known for his decades-long work with Neil Young and Crazy Horse. However, Molina is a superb vocalist and songwriter in his own right, as evidenced by the album's 11 self-penned tracks.
When asked about his songwriting process, Ralph describes it as being akin to a puzzle, stating that the melodies come to him first, followed by lyrics. Once ideas start coming together, he states, “I do my best to turn them into what others can relate to…This, my first work, turned out to be about love and inspiration”. Molina gives credit to God for inspiring his work, and dedicates the album to departed friends Danny Whitten, David Briggs, and Jack Nietzche. Many of the songs were composed on Whitten's old guitar.

Much like the artist himself, the songs comprising the album are unpretentious and insightful, exploring a full range of emotions. Molina is accompanied by a host of musicians from a range of genres. Contributing artists include Steve Crimmel, Kelly Clarkson, Barry Goldberg, Dave West, Tom Lackner, Phil Lee, Ian McNabb, Kent Agee, Josh Sklar, Mark Pont, Anthony Crawford, Victor Goodman, George Friedenthal, Greg Morrow, Bob Thiele, and John Philip Shenale.
