I can't believe that me, a music person, and one who passes the Wiltern Theater on a daily basis (to and from work) did NOT see on the marquee "Buffalo Springfield" this Saturday and Sunday. Man, it pisses me off that I had no clue this band was playing. I am all things Springfield ... hell I was at a taping of Shindig back in 1968 where they played as well as Herman's Hermits, and I had (I lost them) autographs from both bands!
My first husband bears a strong resemblance to Stills.
I checked for tickets. Shit, $1,000 for an orchestra seat and you can't buy a single ticket it has to be a du0. I may still just show up Saturday, and see if there are any decent scalpers or whatever.
Enjoy the set.
I was a follower of all things Buffalo Springfield, from Richie Furay and his incarnations to Poco and then Souther, Hilman & Furay band, to obviously, CSN&Y, but also Manassas and then, of course, just being Neil Young! Unfortunately, Jim Messina is not participating (of Loggins & Messina fame AFTER Buffalo Springfield).
Enjoy their most famous album.
Expecting To Fly

All of these songs affected my life. Those that can even "get" Neil Young's style, lyrics and musicality, well, high five to them. The groove of Loggins and Messina, even though Kenny came out ahead of Jimmy, hey, their blend would not have started any further career for both of them, although at the time, one has to remember, Loggins was the newbie, and Jimmy was, duh, from Buffalo Springfield!
The incarnation of Crosby, Stills, Nash (and then) Young, there really isn't anything to say about that phenomena! But, for me, I went further following Stills into his Manassas days and thereafter.
I did see a few concerts in the 1970's of CSN&Y, but I never saw Buffalo Springfield, except for that TV taping. Saw Manassas live once, never saw Neil, alone. Saw many Loggins and Messina concerts, though! Although, in reality, my favorite in Buffalo Springfield has always been Richie.
Damn, a 59 year old trolling a concert venue for a scalped ticket to a concert! Not quite the image I would usually portray, ha ha.
