Hall of Fame Essay

1997

Michael Hill

Lots of bands got their start on the Sunset Strip, but none quite so literally as Buffalo Springfield. 

The band was thrown together on the Los Angeles boulevard in early 1966, when Stephen Stills and Richie Furay, two folk refugees from New York City, were stuck in traffic and spotted a hearse with Canadian plates that obviously wasn't heading to a funeral.

They were beautiful harmonies, a psychedelic orchestra.
