Buffalo Springfield to Do Fall Reunion Tour, David Crosby Says
Published Feb 11, 2011Last fall, Neil Young reunited with his old Buffalo Springfield cohorts Stephen Stills and Richie Furay for their first performance since their 1960s heyday. Now, fellow folk rock icon David Crosby (who played with Stills and Young is CSNY) has said that Buffalo Springfield are planning a full-fledged reunion tour.
"I think it was a very pleasant experience for Neil and Stephen both," Crosby recently told Rolling Stone. "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 favourite bands."
Crosby spoke highly of singer/guitarist Furay, who he said was the highlights of the 2010 show. "I didn't get to see them live, but I watched clips and Richie -- I got to tell you man -- he is so happy onstage and is such a joyful energy."
While the members of Buffalo Springfield have yet to confirm that the reunion is a go, Furay's manager David Spero told Rolling Stone, "There certainly are discussions to that effect."
Of course, a full reunion is impossible, since bassist Bruce Palmer died in 2004 and drummer Dewey Martin passed away last year.
As for whether the band would record any new songs, Crosby speculated, "I doubt it. I don't think they have the material. But then again, Neil can write five songs in one week, damn him. I wish I could. Anything's possible. I know all three of those guys are still writing, so you can say anything."
