Pickin' Up the Pieces Richie Furay & Michael Roberts read online review & book description:

When a young Richie Furay moved to New York hoping to make it big in folk music, God wasn’t one of his concerns. But destiny was.
Later, when he started Buffalo Springfield with Neil Young and Stephen Stills, it seemed Furay’s 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 wasn’t 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 we’re not looking. As you follow the twists and turns in Richie Furay’s inspiring journey, you’ll gain fresh insight into your own.

  • Rock and roll and Christian Faith

    By Fred6795
    Richie Furay writes a highly readable memoir that gives a view of the early years of rock and roll and a witness to the Christian faith that transformed his life in the 70s. As a long time Buffalo Springfield and Poco fan, it was great to read inside stories on these great bands that never reached the commercial success that their talent levels would have forecast. Richie makes no apologies for his faith and is honest in professing his beliefs without being in your face.
