Buffalo Springfield 2012 Tour: Not Going Down - UPDATED
Hey! Who's that stomping all over my face?
It now seems as if the long awaited Buffalo Springfield 2012 Reunion Tour will not be going down after all.
There have been quite a few rumors, confirmations, denials, and relentless speculation about Buffalo Springfield reunion tour plans over the past months.
In an interview with Stephen Stills on 97.3 KBCO: World Class Rock, Stills says the tour is off, that he will tour solo, Richie Furay has solo tour plans also, Crosby & Nash will tour together next summer, and Neil Young is "writing a book".
Stills says, "Neil [Young] started a book and said, 'Don't mess with the muse, man.'"

We're really not sure where to go with this.
We could blog on all of Richie Furay's quotes on the tour happening.
Or recite stories of Neil and his on and off relationship with his bandmates.
Or about how we thought Neil was working on NYA Volume #2.
Or whether following The Muse is a good idea.
But we won't. Not today.
Because we're so grateful that we saw the triumphant reunion of The Buffalo Springfield at 2010 Bridge School Benefit Concerts.
And, for what it's worth, those memories can never be taken away from any of us.

UPDATE: From Buffalo Springfield Postpone Reunion Tour Again | Rolling Stone Music By Andy Greene:
"This delay happened for a multitude of reasons," Richie Furay's manager David Spero tells Rolling Stone. "The plan is still to tour next year. There's not a timeline at this point. Buffalo Springfield is at the top of Neil's list or priorities. It's just a matter of finding a time that works for everybody."
