A myopic member of the lunatic fringe who shall go nameless as MiBoDoCa, commented that the Buffalo Springfield had their time in the sun for a "lunch hour" compared to the Kinks and implied their dubious significance. In reflecting on that lack of perspective (and class), it is most worthy of note that the Springfield are responsible for more great music than produced by any other band. Thus spoketh the music gods: "And the Springfield begat Poco, and begat Loggins & Messina, and begat Crosby Stills & Nash, and begat Crosby Stills Nash & Young, and begat Crosby & Nash, and begat the Stills - Young Band, and begat the Souther-Furay Band, and begat Stephen Stills, and begat Neil Young, and begat Neil Young & Crazy Horse, and begat Richie Furay, and begat Jim Messina." That's a lot of begat-ting ! No other group lineage produced the quantity of great music as did the Buffalo Springfield.
And the Kinks begat . . . wait, I need more time to think . . . well, they begat the Kinks I guess and the Davies Brothers. Wow - that's really impressive . . . I guess.
