This month, the Beatles get a second chance to be enshrined in the Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame -- but first they have to get by Buffalo Springfield. Each month, our readers will determine which of eight legendary artists or bands is immortalized forever for their contributions to classic rock history.
Buffalo Springfield are one of the archetype rock and roll bands of all time. Their time together was brief, but in just over two years they managed to issue three albums and a handful of singles, and spawn the careers of Stephen Stills, Richie Furay, Bruce Palmer, Dewey Martin, Jim Messina and Neil Young...
The inability of Neil Young to stay committed to a musical idea has been part of his charm throughout his career, but to his infrequent bandmate Stephen Stills it's maddening. In a new interview, Stills opens up about the damage Young did by walking away from the Buffalo Springfield reunion tour that was scheduled to take place in 2012.
Neil Young's busy 2012 was partly to blame for a planned Buffalo Springfield reunion tour falling through earlier this year, but it sounds like a get-together with Richie Furay and Stephen Stills could be moving up his priority list for 2013. In a recent interview, Young expressed regret that the '60s group never reached their potential.
Despite the fact that they were only originally active for an approximate two year span (1966 to 1968), the impact of Buffalo Springfield's song 'For What It's Worth' continues to resonate today, almost 50 years later.
If you've been trying to figure out how Neil Young's recent announcement that he's working on a pair of new albums with Crazy Horse would fit in with his plans to tour with the reunited Buffalo Springfield, you can stop wondering: the Springfield reunion is on hold, again.
