Canadian-born drummer Dewey Martin of Buffalo Springfield dies at 68


NEW YORK ? Dewey Martin, the Canadian-born drummer for '60s rock band Buffalo Springfield, has died.

Rolling Stone reports that Martin died Jan. 31 of unknown causes in Van Nuys, Calif. He was 68.

According to the Rolling Stone report, Martin not only sang backup on the Buffalo Springfield hit "For What It's Worth," he also provided the LSD to Stephen Stills that inspired him to write the song.

After the band fell apart in 1968, Martin tried to carry on by forming the New Buffalo Springfield, which led to legal battles.

He later became a car mechanic.

Martin, who grew up in the Ottawa area, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with the rest of Buffalo Springfield in 1997.

He was born Walter Milton Dwayne Midkiff and began playing drums at age 13, according to the online music encyclopedia Allmusic.com.

After moving to the U.S. he worked as a touring drummer with performers including Roy Orbison, the Everly Brothers and Patsy Cline.

It's sad to hear

If anyone hasn't read it already, the John Einarson, Richie Furay book For What It's worth is well worth the read.

I actually have a copy of their first album that predates "For What It's Worth". They had to add it to the record after it became a hit.

Please allow numbnutz here to finish the previous thread. As I was writing,...(see previous thread)...second. I heard you did a solo project after B/S, called, "Full Circle," as up to that point you were the only "original" member who had not done an album on their own. Can't say that I knew much about you after that, but you were always a good triva question and I hope you didn't take offense to that and the many times I won a pint. Any way, if we end up in the same place later along the road - the pint's on me. I hope you were happy and loved, thanks for the music. R.I.P.,...............mwh
