Five Ill-Advised Rock Reunions


Buffalo Springfield, the 1960s band known for briefly employing Neil Young and Stephen Stills, announced a six-date reunion tour this summer and an appearance at the Bonnaroo festival.

Since half of Buffalo Springfield's original members are dead, the tour is less an actual reunion than a ploy by Young and Stills to perform a few more times before senility wipes all memory of their existence from the collective Baby Boomer psyche.

In a word, it's inessential. But so are most rock reunions, and at least for Buffalo Springfield, their one memorable song, "For What It's Worth," found a second life when it was performed 30 years ago on the Muppet Show. The rest of these groups would be lucky to carry Miss Piggy's bags.
