Lindsey Buckingham's career began to take off when he and Stevie Nicks joined Fleetwood Mac's core lineup of drummer Mick Fleetwood, bassist John McVie and keyboardist/singer Christine McVie in early 1974. The former blues band, with the addition of "Buckingham Nicks," immediately morphed into a pop hit-making wonder. The group's eponymous album contained smash singles, including Buckingham's "Monday Morning," "World Turning" and "I'm So Afraid." However, it was their next album, 1977's Rumours, which launched the group into the pop stratosphere, propelled by Lindsey's tunes "Go Your Own Way" and "Second Hand News." Rumours earned the group a Grammy Award for Best Album of the Year and it remains one of the best selling albums of all time. Over the next several years, Buckingham was the principal producer on all of Fleetwood Mac's projects, including the experimental double album Tusk, Mirage and Tango in the Night. In the early '80s, Buckingham launched his solo career with Law and Order, which spawned the Top 10 hit "Trouble." Other solo hits included "Go Insane" and "Holiday Road." Buckingham's career has continued to flourish—his critically acclaimed Under the Skin, released in 2006, was followed by the exceptional DVD, Live at the Bass Performance Hall and 2008's Gift of Screws. His next solo project is scheduled for release later this year. As a member of Fleetwood Mac, Buckingham was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.

This is sure to be a fascinating interview. Singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles achieved mainstream success in 2007 with her hit single “Love Song,” sold over 1 million records worldwide and was nominated for three Grammys. She will talk to Buckingham about his phenomenal career, both in a band and as a solo artist, his creative process and how he wrote some of the most monumental music of our time.

Songwriter, Artist – “King of Anything," “Love Song,” Kaleidoscope Heart, Little Voice | | Hi. It’s me, Sara. As I’ve said before, I don’t do those fancy bios. So sue me.  Kaleidoscope Heart is my new album, and I’m beyond proud of this collection of songs, in no small part due to the fact it was like pulling teeth to write them. We spent the better part of three years touring and supporting my first record, Little Voice, and by the end of that process I was completely burnt out. We had some unforgettable high points as | well as some very humbling low ones, and like any good rollercoaster... Read More →
