"Buffalo Springfield was an American rock band known for both its music and as a springboard for the careers of Neil Young, Stephen Stills, and Richie Furay. The original lineup also included Dewey Martin on drums and Bassist Bruce Palmer. Formed in April 1966, Buffalo Springfield was plagued by infighting, drug-related arrests, and line-up changes that led to the group's disbanding after just two years. Despite the band's short tenure and limited output it was one of the most influential of its era, earning Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognition."
"Stills went on to form Crosby, Stills & Nash with David Crosby of The Byrds and Graham Nash of The Hollies in 1968. Young launched a solo career, but in 1969 also reunited with Stills in Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, which saw the beginning of his sporadic relationship with that trio." via Wikipedia
