BUFFALO SPRINGFIELD

BIOGRAPHY
 
Buffalo Springfield

After the band's formation in April 1966, a series of disruptions, including internal bickering and the pressure of working in the music industry, resulted in constant changes in the group's lineup and ultimately culminated in the group's disbanding after roughly 25 months.

Buffalo Springfield released a total of three albums but left a legacy that includes many demo recordings, studio outtakes and live recordings, as well as a reputation for excellent personnel and high band dysfunction.
