Richie Furay previews Bonnaroo, Buffalo Springfield shows

Posted By on Fri, Jun 3, 2011 at 3:22 PM

Richie Furay is on the Bonnaroo Press Conference phone call right now talking about Buffalo Springfield and Bonnaroo.

Furay says the band is playing material from its three albums, in addition to an encore of "Rockin' in the Free World." He thinks Bonnaroo is a "conglomerate" and "unique festival," and he hopes the younger generation there will get to know Buffalo Springfield either through their own research or checking them out at Bonnaroo.

Furay says the songs are pretty much the versions that were recorded more than 40 years ago, but some have been given minor updates through drumbeats or slight tweakings.

He says the band has plans to tour this fall, and the dates they have scheduled this month are strictly looked at as warm-ups for the festival. He also feels that the band writing new music together is not out of the question.

Furay is one of three original members of Buffalo Springfield, along with Neil Young and Stephen Stills.
