Buffalo Springfield To Tour
David Crosby reveals that Stills, Young & Furay in talks to tour later this year
The surviving members of Buffalo Springfield reunited at Neil Young's Bridge School Benefit Show in California last year with Joe Vitale filling in for the late Dewey Martin and Young’s longtime bassist Rick Rosas replacing the late Bruce Palmer. They played a 12 songs set which was rapturously received by everyone in attendance.
And now, according to Young & Stills' sometime bandmate David Crosby, the band are looking to play some more dates later this year.
In an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine Crosby revealed:
"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."
Crosby continues, "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."
Furay’s manager David Spero tells Rolling Stone, "There certainly are discussions to that effect."
Crosby has an idea how to make the tour even more special: "I wish I could throw it in with the Byrds," he says, referring to his old band. "That would be my dream, because everybody and their uncle would come to see the Byrds and Buffalo Springfield. But that’s not going to happen. Roger [McGuinn] is pretty adamant about that. He’s very happy about being a folksinger; he likes it, and wants it that way."
