Dewey Martin, drummer for the short-lived but long-resonating band Buffalo Springfield whose career after the group split never ignited like those of former bandmates Neil Young and Stephen Stills, has died. He was 68.

“It’s a great loss,” Micky Dolenz, drummer for the Monkees, said Thursday. Dolenz said he became close friends with Mr. Martin in the late ’60s. “He was a great drummer. … And he was a really nice guy.”
