    LOS ANGELES – Dewey Martin, the muscular, gregarious drummer and singer who helped found the pioneering country rock band Buffalo Springfield with Neil Young and Stephen Stills, has died. He was 68.

    Martin was found dead Sunday by a roommate in his Van Nuys apartment, longtime friend Lisa Lenes said. She said Martin had health problems in recent years and she believed he died of natural causes.

  3. Is the 60's rockers death pool trifecta now in play? Can I take David Crosby?

    Saw the thread title and Stills was the first guy I thought of.

    Crosby straightened out (even siring a kid)
    But, I thought Stills was in decent shape, too.

    One of the more mellow protest songs ever (about L.A. police busting up a peaceful youth rally)

    Saw Stills at the Bob Hope two weeks ago.

    He's a little scatterbrained with his words and rather on the pudgy side. Plus, I think he has a hearing issue these days. But he did a fine job during the Celebrity Jam, jamming with Don Felder.

    Neat story in "Shakey" about how the song got its name.
