Buffalo Springfield Reunion And More For Neil Young
Neil Young is having quite a month. On February 10th, he was honored at Carnegie Hall as the MusiCares Person of the Year. Some of the artists who paid tribute to Young were Jakob Dylan, Patti Smith and The Roots.
Over the weekend he won his first ever Grammy Award for “Angry World” from last year’s album Le Noise. And Saturday, tickets go on sale for the Bonnaroo Festival where Buffalo Springfield will reunite.
Bonnaroo is a four-day music festival in Manchester, Tennessee scheduled for June ninth through the eleventh. Along with Buffalo Springfield the list of talent includes Robert Plant and the Band of Joy, Gregg Allman and Warren Haynes.
Buffalo Springfield got back together last fall at Neil Young’s Bridge School benefit for a 12-song set. Stephen Stills and Richie Furay played along with drummer Joe Vitale who filled in for the late Dewey Martin and Young’s longtime Bassist Rick Rosas replaced the late Bruce Palmer.
And next month Neil Young will induct his longtime friend Tom Waits into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 14th.
