Neil Young, Stephen Stills and Richie Furay formed Buffalo Springfield in Los Angeles, today, 53 years ago. The band is known for combining folk, country and rock into their own unique sound. Being among the first wave of US bands to reach fame in the wake of the British invasion, their hit song, ‘For What It’s Worth’ became a 1960’s political anthem. The group released three albums after signing to Atlantic Records and released their first single ‘Nowadays Clancy Can’t Even Sing’. ‘Buffalo Springfield Again’, their second album marked their progression to hard rock and psychedelia. The group broke up in 1968 after various drug-related arrests and line-up changes. Stephen Stills later formed Crosby, Stills and Nash along with David Crosby. Young, after launching his solo career, joined Stills in 1969. Furay joined Jim Messina to form Poco, a country rock band. Buffalo Springfield was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.
