Lindsey Buckingham made breathless headlines earlier this year by being fired from Fleetwood Mac, but us longtime watchers of that never-ending soap opera know well that for over a forty year period now, Buckingham’s role has resembled Al Pacino’s mafia Don Corleone character in Godfather 3 exclaiming, “Every time I think I’m out, they pull me back in!” Buckingham has put the free time to great use by collecting the best of his solo albums into Solo Anthology- The Best of Lindsey Buckingham.

(cont)…”And I got to lie still, and I stopped being a rock star. I stopped working, I stopped striving, I stopped everything. And I was completely still . And being still is the best thing you can do for yourself. I mean it. We just don’t do enough of it in our lives , and it is so important. And I just laid still, and I finally got to the point where my brain stopped chattering. It stopped waking up and wandering, and I started dreaming again. I started dreaming of what I wanted the rest of my life to look like .”
RB: “With the diagnosis of breast cancer, you still could make plans for the future even before you completed chemotherapy and radiation ?”
ME:” Oh my gosh , I want the rest of my life ! No no no, I’m not done at all, I’m just beginning . And with that new excitement, I started looking at what I had created , what I’m creating now, and what I wanted to create. I started reading like crazy , I started reading everything from cosmology to quantum physics , string theory, agnostic gospels, Buddhism, everything ! And everybody is saying the same thing , this simple thing : that we’re all here to create, to be happy, and to love. You know, give me the peace signs and all the gooey stuff, but that’s really what I started feeling.And when I started thinking ,’Oh my gosh , I want to write a new album ‘ , I had this joy behind it . I had this great desire to put my experience down and to ignite people and light ’em up and say , ‘Look , you can do this too . We don’t have to do it this way ‘. ”
RB: What attitudes and behaviors should we all look at ?
ME: Today , right now, we have a choice .We have marketed ourselves into a little bitty corner of sound bites and fast food , and we think we can sustain ourselves on this . We think we can go to McDonald’s every day , eat in our car , and be fine . We can just download that one little song that sounds just like that other song . They’re little pieces . If you want to live your life on just little pieces of life , okay , that’s your choice . But I think that there’s a large bunch of us who really want more , who really do believe that the best food comes from the earth ; that it grows up out of the dirt ; and then you eat it and it nourishes you . And that music is made channeled through an artist . They craft it , they put it down in a certain place , and you can enjoy it for three minutes , or an hour , or you can even go to a live concert and enjoy it for three hours . Imagine giving yourself that time ! But I think our society needs to take a breath and step back , and get off this wheel that we’re on of faster , faster , faster . I do .”
Thirty years ago In the Studio were Ann & Nancy Wilson of Heart 9-26-88 for the real rock fairytale of “Dramboat Annie”.
Is what US president Gerald Ford called “our national nightmare” really over? The final show of Motley Crue’s Final Tour came to a chaotic close December 2015 to fulfill the rock prophesy of “Terror in Tinseltown“at LA’s Staples Center. But apparently a little-discussed rock myth of hard rock drummers spontaneously combusting, first documented decades […]
This song “I Got You” was done in 1980 by New Zealand band Split Enz, who started their career by dressing in such bizarre garish make-up that would make KISS look like Lady Gaga. Split Enz was led by Tim Finn and younger brother Neil, who went on to Australia and eventually Los Angeles as […]
When The Call’s main songwriter/singer Michael Been passed away recently , a quote was attributed to him in his obituary where he claimed to have seen The Band in concert at age 18 , which set Been on a life’s course of music literally until the day that he died . Watching Martin Scorsese’s The Last Waltz , The Band’s Thanksgiving 1976 swan song , shows how that kind of epiphany could happen . But the earliest work of this quintet with the generic name is no less impressive : when Rolling Stone magazine writers compiled their Top 500 Albums of All Time , The Band’s 1968 debut Music from Big Pink ranked at #34 . That’s almost twenty places higher than The Beatles’ debut !… (more)
William Martin Billy Joel has sold more albums in the U.S. than any pop/rock singer except for Elvis Presley. Superstar musicians in that rarified league ( and many more only pretenders to it ) always surround themselves with gaggles of managers, “minders”, assistants, agents, and promoters , and the size of the entourage doubles when […]
Ten years after redefining what the guitar composer/ performer could be with 1987’s Surfing with the Alien, Joe Satriani had come to a crossroads in his career and knew that he needed a second act. He delivered in a big way in 1998 with Crystal Planet, and I’ll let AllMusic.com’s Stephen Thomas Erlewine make my […]
Between 1980 and 1986, the British trio Genesis released a series of four consecutive hit albums, each more successful than its predecessor by as many as five times. Because drummer/singer/songwriter Phil Collins had a parallel solo career take off during that time, reading the critical reviews from many respected music writers in this period imply […]
We are very sad to report that original Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist Ed King, the only original member who did not grow up in Jacksonville Florida but was a Southern Californian they met when he was in the Strawberry Alarm Clock, died at his home in Nashville August 22. Ed King was 68 and had been […]
