Biography

Los Angeles, California, United States (1966 – 1968, 2010 – present)

Buffalo Springfield are a band which formed in 1966 in Los Angeles, California, United States. The band’s original lineup consisted of Neil Young (vocals, guitar), Stephen Stills (vocals, guitar), Richie Furay (vocals, guitar), Bruce Palmer (bass) and Dewey Martin (drums). Palmer left the band in 1968 and was replaced by Jim Messina. The band’s only Top 40 single, “For What It’s Worth”, was released in 1967. The band split in 1968. Despite lasting for under 25 months, the band was massively influential on many later and artists and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.

The band only released three albums in its short life, “Buffalo Springfield” (1966), “Buffalo Springfield Again” (1967) and “Last Time Around” (1968). “For What It’s Worth”, which peaked at #7 in early 1967, was the band’s only Top 40 single in the United States. 1967’s “Rock ‘n’ Roll Woman” came the closest to giving the band a second Top 40 entry, peaking at #44.

Stills and Young would go on to perform with David Crosby and Graham Nash in the hugely popular rock act Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young shortly after Buffalo Springfield’s demise. Furay and Messina went on to found group Poco, before Furay embarked on his own solo career. After Messina left Poco, he formed Loggins and Messina with singer/songwriter Kenny Loggins

On October 23 and 24, 2010, Young, Furay and Stills, along with drummer Joe Vitale and Rick Rosas (replacing the deceased Dewey Martin and Bruce Palmer, respectively) reunited for two performances for the Bridge Schools Benefit concert in Mountain View, California.
