Buffalo Springfield Reunion Goes and Says Goodbye

Buffalo Springfield

If you’ve been trying to figure out how Neil Young‘s recent announcement that he’s working on a pair of new albums with Crazy Horse would fit in with his plans to tour with the reunited Buffalo Springfield, you can stop wondering: the Springfield reunion is on hold, again.

“You know, Neil is just fickle and even though it boils down to all three of us making a decision…without the three of us, really there can’t be anything that would even resemble a Buffalo Springfield,” admitted Richie Furay during a recent radio interview. “I gotta say that we probably lost a little bit of our momentum; that isn’t to say it couldn’t be picked up again, but I certainly don’t see anything happening this year.”

The band has been trying to stick together long enough to book a 30-date tour since 2010, when they ended more than 40 years of inactivity with a performance at that year’s Bridge School benefit concert. As recently as last September, Furay’s agent was still promising that “Buffalo Springfield is at the top of Neil’s list of priorities. It’s just a matter of finding a time that works for everybody.”

The mercurial Young, who tends to vacillate between taking decades to finish a project (as he did with the long-gestating ‘Archives Vol. 1′) and surprising his label with dashed-off records, seems to have rekindled the flame with his on-again, off-again mates in Crazy Horse for now; he leaked a 38-minute jam recorded with the band late last year, and he says he’s working on not one, but two new records with the Horse. Of course, that doesn’t mean he won’t decide to go off and do something else first — Bluenotes reunion tour, anyone?
