“For What It’s Worth” August 15, 2007

Posted by Jeff in Folk, Music, Rock.

Buffalo Springfield at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, introduced by Peter Tork of the Monkees, performing their best-known song.

Buffalo Springfield

Buffalo Springfield — founded by Richie Furay, Dewey Martin, Jim Messina, Bruce Palmer, Stephen Stills and Neil Young — had an enormous musical influence when you consider that the group stayed together barely two years and experienced numerous changes in their lineup. The Monterey lineup included Doug Hastings along with David Crosby who was about to quit the Byrds, but without Neil Young, who returned shortly afterward. This clip did not appear in Monterey Pop, the D. A. Pennebaker documentary.</p?

The song was a reaction to the so-called “Sunset Strip riots” of police vs. young people in the late 1960s. Buffalo Springfield’s final concert was in Long Beach in May, 1968.
