Buffalo Springfield Fall Tour
It’s my opinion Buffalo Springfield is more remembered for what it’s members did AFTER they broke up than when they were together. Example: Stephen Stills (Crosby Stills & Nash), Rich Foray (Poco), Neil Young (duhh), Jim Felder (Blood Sweat & Tears), and Jim Messina (Loggins & Messina). Don’t misunderstand me, Buffalo Springfield was a great band even though they only hit the Top 40 once with “For What It’s Worth” “Buffalo Springfield Again”, and “Retrospective” albums are both good listening as well. I hope the band comes to Duluth. If so, I’ll be buying a ticket for sure.
Since Buffalo Springfield reunited at last year’s Bridge School Benefit in Mountain View, California, there have been rumors the band will tour for the first time since their break-up in 1968. Now longtime band friend David Crosby confirms it: original members Neil Young, Stephen Stills and Richie Furay will hit the road this fall.
“I think he is excited,” Crosby says of CSN bandmate Stephen Stills. “And I’ve got to tell you, I didn’t get to see them live, but I watched clips and Richie [Furay]- I got to tell you man, he is so happy onstage and is such a joyful energy.” “He really sparked that thing, and I think it was a very pleasant experience for Neil and Stephen both. I know they’re going to go out for at least some dates in the fall. Personally, I’d like to go watch. They’re one of my favorite bands.”
The original five Springfield members attempted to reform on three separate occasions in the Eighties, but “there just wasn’t a flow,” Furay said in September. But he was optimistic days after the reunion show last year. “I’m never going to say never again,” he told Rolling Stone. “From our perspective, we left with the idea that we can do this if we want to.”
