Pickin' Up the Pieces: The Heart and Soul of Country Rock Pioneer Richie Furay

Pickin' Up the Pieces: The Heart and Soul of Country Rock Pioneer Richie Furay Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When a young Richie Furay moved to New York hoping to make it big in folk music, God wasnt one of his concerns. But destiny was.

Later, when he started Buffalo Springfield with Neil Young and Stephen Stills, it seemed Furays destiny had finally arrived. Although the band recorded only three albums, it remains a touchstone of sixties rock music-with all five band members now enshrined in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Furay remained a musical pioneer, forming Poco and recording some of the first-and best-country rock music of the sixties and seventies. His work was a major influence on the Eagles and innumerable other bands. But he still had not found his destiny.

It wasnt until his marriage almost disintegrated that Furay confronted his need for God. After co-founding two legendary bands and recording with a rock super-group, Richie Furay finally found his destiny. The long journey took him from sold-out arena concerts to the pulpit of a Colorado church, from rock royalty to the Rock of Ages.

Destiny is often found in the places where were not looking. As you follow the twists and turns in Richie Furays inspiring journey, youll gain fresh insight into your own.

Synopsis:

The founder of pioneering folk-rock groups Buffalo Springfield and Poco reveals how God pointed him toward his true destiny, putting him on a dramatic, inspiring journey from being a rock star to becoming a pastor.
