Lindsey Buckingham is a guitarist and songwriter for the band Fleetwood Mac.
Before he joined Fleetwood Mac, Lindsey Buckingham was sketching out his brand of
Brian Wilson-influenced pop with Stevie Nicks, in the folky duo Buckingham Nicks. Mick Fleetwood invited the duo to join his band in late 1974. After Buckingham joined, the band’s pop tendencies flowered under his direction. Not only did he provide the group with some brilliant, surprisingly dark pop songs, but he also sharpened the other members’ songs with his production, arrangements, and breathtaking guitar playing.
Buckingham left the band after their 1987 album, Tango in the Night, to concentrate on his solo recordings. ‘Out of the Cradle’ arrived in 1992, followed by the slow, but, ultimately rewarding reunion of Fleetwood Mac in the late ‘90s. Buckingham then released ‘Under the Skin’ in 2006.
