March 3, 1966

On this day in 1966, Neil Young, Stephen Stills, and Richie Furay formed Buffalo Springfield.

The group combined rock, folk, and country music, creating a sound that would become its own. The group’s song, ‘For What It’s Worth’, became a political anthem for the tempestuous ’60s. In 1997, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. In 2000, Neil Young sang on his Silver & Gold album of a desire to “see those guys again and give it a shot”, in reference to Buffalo Springfield. However, it was not until October 23, 2010 would surviving members reunite for a benefit concert.

On February 27, 2012, Richie Furay announced that Buffalo Springfield is on a break and does not know if there will ever be a revival.
