Buffalo Springfield

Buffalo Springfield was renowned both for its music and as a springboard for the careers of Neil Young, Stephen Stills, and Richie Furay. “For What It’s Worth” became a political anthem for the turbulent late 1960s. Formed in April 1966, Buffalo Springfield was plagued by infighting, drug-related arrests, and line-up changes that led to the group’s disbanding after just two years. Three albums were released under its name and despite the band’s short tenure and limited output it was one of the most influential of its era, earning Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognition and spawning Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Poco and Loggins and Messina.

During a live performance on the television show Hollywood Palace – Springfield’s non-bass-playing road manager held a bass with his back to the camera while the band mimed to a prerecorded track.
