Hey there, what’s that sound? Hold onto your hats Buffalo Springfield fans. It’s the sound of Neil Young reuniting with his old Buffalo Springfield band buddies after four decades for a benefit concert at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California this October. The purpose of the annual Bridge School Benefit, founded by Neil Young, is to raise funds for handicapped children.

PADDOCK WOOD, UNITED KINGDOM - JULY 06: Headliner Neil Young performs live on stage during The Hop Farm Festival at The Hop Farm on July 6, 2008 in Paddock Wood, Kent, England. The one day festival boasts a back to basics festival experience, with the event being totally unbranded, no sponsorship and no VIP areas.

Joe Vitale and Rick Rosas are expected to sit in for the original band members who will be missed by fans.

Richie Furay who is now the senior pastor at the Calvary Chapel in Broomfield Colorado, says he got an email from Neil that simply said “Call me”. Then Furay, Stills and Young hashed it over in a conference call.

Many of us will envy those of you who can squeeze into your old bell bottoms and make it to this event that is for a very worthy cause.
