Dewey Martin, 1940-2009

Rolling Stone and the Los Angeles Times have reported Dewey Martin, best known as drummer for Buffalo Springfield, has died at 68.

According to the RS obituary, Martin was praised by Neil Young as “a sensitive drummer. ... He can feel the music - you don’t have to tell him.” He sang lead on "Good Time Boy" (from Springfield's terrific second album, "Buffalo Springfield Again") and background vocals on the group's only Top 10 hit, "For What It's Worth."

According to the L.A. Times, he died Saturday. Cause of death is believed to be natural causes.
