Buffalo Springfield, POCO & Souther-Hillman-Furay comprise the illustrious musical career of Richie Furay. He is celebrated for pioneering Country-Rock with his unsurpassed soulful voice, powerful songwriting, and hard driving guitar playing.
Furay is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee for his work with Buffalo Springfield, a group he formed with Stephen Stills & Neil Young. He pioneered Country-Rock with Poco members Jim Messina & Rusty Young after the breakup of Buffalo Springfield.
At an Eagles concert in Denver a few years back, head Eagle Glenn Frey pointed Richie Furay out in the audience with the acknowledgement, “If it wasn’t for you, we wouldn’t be here.” High praise indeed.
