Despite Buffalo Springfield's rather short lifespan, it's regarded as one of the 1960's most influential bands, and one that launched the careers of Neil Young, Stephen Stills, Richie Furay and Jim Messina--all original members of the band. Formed in Los Angeles by the aforementioned artists, who were all studio musicians looking for a break, Buffalo Springfield came together in 1966 to write classic folk rock songs. After securing a spot as house band for the respected venue Whiskey A Go Go, Buffalo Springfield became notorious for its riotous and often dysfunctional live shows. However, this dysfunction eventually became unbearable for band members and the group broke up just two years later. With decades of successful solo careers under their belts, all of the original members (excepting Messina) decided to briefly reunite in 2010 for a tour with limited dates.
