UPDATE: Rolling Stone posted that the guitarist broke his hand; phew, false alarm. But a bummer for Crazy Horse fans in Europe:

Neil Young and Crazy Horse have canceled the final seven dates of their European tour because guitarist Frank “Poncho” Sampedro broke his hand. “It’s a mild fracture,” a source close to the Young camp tells Rolling Stone. “He’s expected to make a complete recovery in time for the North American tour.” The group has been on tour for much of the past year, and they played yesterday in Oslo, Norway.
