Comment of the Moment: The Unfinished Business of Buffalo Springfield
Richie Furay, Stephen Stills, and Neil Young w/ Rick Rosas and Joe Vitale
The Comment of the Moment is from Buffalo Springfield's Richie Furay Looks Back & Forward, Re-affirm's Reunion in February 2012 by Zot:
It occurred to me that maybe the Buffalo Springfield reunion means just as much, if not more, to Neil than it does to Richie?
Judging from the interviews that Richie has given, it seems as if a Buffalo Springfield reunion was not in his wheelhouse at all. That it was a foregone conclusion in his mind that it would never happen.
Then, the call came in from Neil after Stephen suggested it to do the Bridge School Benefit (which was supposed to be a one off thing). I did notice while watching the videos from that show where Neil seemed to be just having the time of his life there. They all were jazzed about continuing on, but Richie did say that they should wait a week or two before making any long range plans.
The conventional wisdom seems to be that Neil put on the B/S reunion in part to give Richie his due, but I'm sensing that there's something deeper than that as far as Neil goes. That this is a huge part of his legacy, and that it will not only not be forgotten, but to remind all how important it was to the larger scheme of things.
How important the music is.
