Comment of the Moment: Buffalo Springfield To Reunite After 42 Years

The Neil Young Comment of the Moment is from Buffalo Springfield To Reunite After 42 Years by Greg Mantho:
This is great news, I think.

One of my favorite quotes is: "I think the best is yet to come, 'cause where I'm from is also where I'm going" (James Taylor).

Who knows why Neil got the urge, for this or anything. Just glad he has now, because I always felt bad for Richie when Neil was a no show when the band was supposed to get together, and also felt bad for the Springfield when Neil didn't show up for the Hall Of Fame induction. Just my own thing, because who knows what the full story is behind things like that?

I think a lot of groups morph, and continue on with and without various members, and I think Dewey and Bruce will be there in spirit, and at the forefront of everyone's minds. Why didn't Neil rush back to the Horse after Ben's death? Again, who knows, he's got to be in a pretty strange place these days in terms of his feelings towards executing his music. I thought being on the outs with the Horse was a possibility, too, but then someone wrote in here that they were with Neil at the Musicares event.

All speculation, but I think it's a cool thing when people take the opportunity to be with each other in any sense when they can.

Here today, gone tomorrow, you know?

Thanks Greg!

This is a case of Neil catching up with the past,instead of it catching up with him.Obviously he feels the time is right whatever has gone on in the past.He cannot undo that,but can do something in the here and now - which he is!It is after all for a very good cause.

On the one hand we have the very contemporay sonic guitarscapes of 'Le Noise' with Daniel Lanois,and on the other the forthcoming retro 60s sound of the Buffalo Springfield,possibly revamped.

It's never boring with Neil!

the Springfield reunion seems to be a very big deal to me and and others here in the Wheat field...on the Rusted Highway? not so much--I find that John sez, it's never (ever) boring w/Neil...wouldn't want it any other way...

So hard to know what to expect from this Springfield reunion. So hard to know what drove Neil to REALLY do it after all these years. Maybe losing two close friends. Maybe he is in a good place with Stephen. Maybe he saw that Richie was touring and doing a lot of the songs. Maybe in some way 3 Buffaloes is simpler than 5.

With no precedent in 42 years, it is hard to imagine what a setlist looks like. Well, easy to imagine, that's fun. But hard to guess where they really go.

The big question is do they play electric? It seems they have to if they want to bring back the LIVE Springfield that all the memebers agree was the REAL Springfield that never got recorded. Or is this a folky early Springfield thing? Or a prelude to something more? Neil has already done his Le Noise tour.

In any case, I am told there is no truth to the rumor that Richie and Stephen are lining up guitarists in case Neil quits between the two shows.
