Buffalo Springfield - circa 1967

Lots of rumors flying around now prior to tomorrow's official announcement. It seems like the much hyped speculation of a Buffalo Springfield reunion may be possibly true. At least with respect to Stephen Stills and Neil Young.

Obviously, several other original Buffalo Springfield members will not be able to make the gigs, sadly.

Several other major "A+" grade artists strongly rumored.

More on The Buffalo Springfield and Neil Young.

The 24th Annual Bridge School Benefit Concert will be held on October 23rd & 24th, 2010.

The lineup for the Bridge School Concert for 2010 will be announced on Monday (if not leaked sooner). We already know that Pearl Jam will be in the lineup.

From everything we're hearing, this year's concert acts will be TOTALLY MINDBLOWING! And no, we are not saying that to just hype it up. We really think folks will fall on the floor when they hear the acts performing.

So, here's a look back at last year's 2009 Bridge School Benefit Concert Reviews, Photos and videos.

And here's a look back at previous year's Bridge School Benefit Concert Reviews.

And this is what the Bridge School is all about.

A wonderful Bridge School kids interviews with Neil Young.

Join the BSN network with anchors Nicole and Alex to learn the latest news from The Bridge School and the community. In this series, the BSN reporters interview a Bridge School supporter and hero, Neil Young!!

Looking out on a big green lawn,
Girls and boys
Playing in the afternoon sun,
Life's a joy
I heard an old song
playing on the radio.

How mindblowing can totally mindblowing be?

Bert Jansch is sorry to announce that he has to undergo an urgent operation to deal with complications arising from his recent lung cancer. As a result, he has sadly had to pull out of the upcoming Gulf Coast leg of Neil Young’s current solo tour as well as cancel a series of solo shows on the East Coast where Pegi Young was due to open for him with her band. Bert is deeply disappointed to be missing the shows, and apologises sincerely to all the fans who were hoping to see him. He has enjoyed every moment of touring with Neil over the last few months, as well as the West coast shows he did with the wonderful Pegi Young band opening, and is looking forward to getting back on the road as soon as possible. Bert is also very disappointed to be missing an appearance at Farm Aid, which he was very much looking forward to. His doctors tell him he should be fit and well again soon, so Bert is looking forward to resuming touring as soon as he can.

"So if anyone from his camp reads this please pass the word "

Thrasher knows how to reach me, so please pass your contact info onto him. I can then forward to the appropriate parties.
I assume this is something to auction off as a fund raiser for the school? thanks

Thanks AG I will do that and let Sean know the ball might be rolling! Mind telling where Neil keeps the Buffalo head? just wondering!

Come on AG, give us the dope- you know! Spill it!
Will there be a few live renditions by of Mr. Soul, Bluebird, Rock N Roll Woman, Out of My Mind? Clancey? Burned? For what its Worth? On the way home? Hot Dusty Roads?

And Yes you do have to come right out and say it!

It's not me Doc;

Like the rest of you, I haven't seen the official announcement yet, but if Buffalo Springfield is indeed on the ticket, I wonder who will be in the lineup. I will be very disappointed if it's just Neil and Stills and some other artists as they've played together many times in CSNY and way back when as the Stills/Young Band. At very least, the lineup should include Richie Furay who is still performing. Jim Messina would be appropriate if he's available but Furay who was a major vocalist and songwriter in the band and, along with Neil and Stephen, among the last surviving original members of the band; he must be included I would think for this to be any sort of Buffalo Springfield reunion.

ps: new google id expecting2fly1 starting with this post. I'm the same old Mike Cordova who's had this handle for a long time.

Absolutely e2f!
Nice ID handle!

At 9/12/2010 08:47:00 PM, Blogger ShittyHorse said...

I'd guess the lineup could be Young, Stills, Furay, Messina- they’d need a drummer. They would HAVE to include these guys to be the Springfield- this is a big deal and I HIGHLY doubt Neil would participate in a shoddy "so-called" reunion that included just himself and Stills- and call it The Buffalo Springfield- that's be the Stills-Young Band. Neil and Steven hold the Springfield in the highest regard and wouldn't shit on the legacy nor their memories of this exceptional band by doing that.
But yes, if true, this is a BIG DEAL. Wish I could be there :(

At 9/12/2010 10:37:00 PM, Blogger Silverfishes said...

AG this is not a rumor.It is the lineup as stated above by Shittyhorse.Enjoy folks!

At 9/13/2010 08:15:00 AM, Blogger asg said...

just a reminder--the Springfield (originally) were five guys named Neil Stephen Ritchie DEWEY and BRUCE--anything less might be "nice", it might even be great, but it WON'T be Buffalo Springfield...I hope EVERYBODY--including Stephen and Neil, will have respect for the legacy...

At 9/13/2010 09:04:00 AM, Blogger andrea1bianco said...

Asg, the BS songwriters and singers are all alive yet. My doubts are for the Steve vocals, almost shot during the last CSN concert which I've attended.

Andrea."So Tired"

At 9/13/2010 09:24:00 AM, Blogger asg said...

yer right Andrea,but I believe a band is based on Human the very least it would be innaresting...even though it literally keeps coming up in my dreams, today I say "ya can't go home again"

At 9/13/2010 10:37:00 AM, Blogger asg said...

uh, by "it" I mean the house I grew up in...a re-curring theme in nearly every dream--hmm that's a good line...

At 9/13/2010 12:42:00 PM, Blogger andrea1bianco said...

Neil is an intelligent and wise man. After the serious experiment with Lanois, a little fun with his old friends.Anyway, he'll try carefully his old companions...

At 9/13/2010 12:53:00 PM, Blogger Daniel said...

Yess!!! Any news if both Messina and Furay will be there?

so excited about this line up but does ANYONE have ideas on how to score reserved tickets for this concert?? I've gone every year since 1989 and have not once been able to get reserved seats. I'm on the phone and computer at 10am as soon as tickets go on sale but they are always sold out (and then the yahoos scalp them on craigslist) just ONCE i'd like to watch this concert from a actual seat rather than sliding down the lawn while my panties slowly ride up my crack.

At 9/13/2010 03:53:00 PM, Blogger Jack said...

I guess it makes sense that he'd do this now Ben Keith's dead; his solo band is basically defunct. I expected Crazy Horse or CSNY but not this! Cool stuff.

At 9/13/2010 04:18:00 PM, Blogger doc said...

Hey winelips....lucky lawn!

At 9/13/2010 05:02:00 PM, Blogger Daniel said...

Furay will attend according to Rollingstone.

At 9/13/2010 06:26:00 PM, Blogger rolandthompsongunner said...

Pretty awesome. The acoustic rule almost needs to be broken for this, however. They have to end the set with Bluebird, right? How righeous could that jam be if they were allowed to plug in? Also, love Richie's vocals, "Kind Woman" is such a beautiful song.

This isn't a cash grab, with a high-profile has-been reunion tour, it's for the Bridge and its kids. I'm cool with that. Perfect reason to get most of the gang together.


At 9/13/2010 09:33:00 PM, Blogger asg said...

rolling stone sez the rhythm section will be Rick Rojas (sp?) and Joe Vitalé I won't be there it might not matter, but *I* am hoping for an acoustic show...

At 9/14/2010 02:25:00 AM, Blogger BecauseSoundMatters said...


Stephen Stills
Richie Furay
Neil Young
Rick Rosas
Joe Vitale

No Messina huh? Pity...

Jim's on tour with Loggins and Messina on one of those dates. Still… too bad.
