Buffalo Springfield Reunites — HOORAY!
Buffalo Springfield is reuniting for the first time in 42 years, for a series of Bridge School concerts. Though it originally surprised me that Neil Young even agreed to this, the explanation became clear when I discovered that Young himself actually started the Bridge School concerts with his wife, to raise money for physical handicaps. Young had previously rejected a reunion tour, and he didn’t show up for Buffalo Springfield’s 1977 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction. Neil Young, Stephen Stills, and Richie Foray will perform, as two of the original members (Bruce Palmer and Dewey Martin) have passed away. I’ve seen Neil Young perform both solo and with his Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young band-mates. Seeing him perform with Buffalo Springfield might make my life complete. If you don’t know who Buffalo Springfield is, before you start to feel ashamed of yourself, I’ve attached their most famous hit below. You will likely recognize it from the Forrest Gump soundtrack. If you don’t, I can’t help you.
