Buffalo Springfield co-founder Richie Furay is back to the future + Feb. 2012 tour

With old band and new, Buffalo Springfield co-founder Richie Furay is back to the future

Musician Richie Furay rehearsing with his Richie Furay Band at Calvary Chapel in Broomfield on Friday July 8, 2011. Furay will be reuniting with former band mates with Buffalo Springfield next year.

Richie Furay could be the forgotten rock-‘n’- roll pioneer.

The 67-year-old Broomfield pastor has roots deep in the annals of rock music — he is the co-founder of the seminal 1960s band Buffalo Springfield and is regarded as an architect of a genre that dominated the radio in the early 1970s.

But aside from rock historians and music geeks, few people know anything about Furay, whose own band has trouble booking shows in Colorado.

Inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997, Furay doesn’t like to play up his accolades.

“Put me on the river, put me on the golf course, put me on the stage — I’m having fun,” he said recently, sitting in the office of his small church.

Furay’s relative anonymity is already changing, thanks to the reunion of Buffalo Springfield, the group he formed in 1966 with Stephen Stills, Neil Young and Bruce Palmer.

Although Buffalo Springfield disbanded after two years and three albums, critics for decades have heralded the group for its four-part harmonies and instrumental prowess, saying the band had the makings to become the American Beatles.

But next year, fans across the U.S. will be able to see Furay when Buffalo Springfield embarks in February on a cross-country tour.
