Fake.

That's actually John Mayer and Buttermilk, the Very Happy Goat.

I saw them last month in Chicago - Fleetwood Mac, not just Stevie and Lindsey.  You can tell they're getting on in years, but the concert still rocked.  If you can see them on this tour, do it.

Nice, Subster!

Funny how we do manage to stay friends with people we've hurt (or been hurt by) the most.  Your results may vary.  Maybe love really is eternal.

Ah truthfully she's always been on the Kim Kardashian side. Saw them the first tour after they joined FM - warmed up for Ten Years After (yeah lawn: OFF!) and she was wearing a pair of 'Wide Load' Levis with no no high heeled boots to make her taller or dress/cape to drape over her rather large *ahem* badonkey-donk.

I always thought he was one of the most under-appreciated guitarists out there.  It's weird.  People rave and rave about Mark Knopfler for his finger-picking, but they hardly ever mention Lindsey Buckingham.

Agreed.  I mean, when talking about Lindsey Buckingham, this performance must be brought up.  That's gotta be tough to play LIKE THAT and sing as well!  He's never brought up in the same company as other guitar heroes, or brought up at all.

Stevie Nicks, Nancy Wilson and Lindsay Wagner loomed large in my adolescence...for obvious reasons.

banjo? absolutely!
some PBS thing from a few years ago was interviewing old folkies about more modern musicians and one of these groups - the [something] brothers, talked about discovering that buckingham's unique style amounted to playing banjo licks on guitar.

Speaking of playing banjo, he can do that too.
 
2013-05-09 12:42:34 PM
I know it's a Peter Green tune, but Linday's done a pretty good job of making it his own...

Oh Well...

If you needed proof Fleetwood Mac could rock after watching the Tusk video, this is it... watching John McVeigh's work on bass will leave your jaw on the floor, too...

As a five string (bluegrass) banjo player I can state that there is a certain amount of "muscle memory" that takes place, allowing your hands to go on "autopilot" and your brain to be elsewhere.

Having said that, relative to the various Lindsay Buckingham performances linked here (both banjo and guitar):  Geez!  Those are incredible!

Thanks all. Got a 5-string left-handed banjo for Christmas this year (yes, they're rare), and am slowly learning, but it's something to aspire to.

Good luck with that;  you could string it backwards and play it upside down and be the Jimi Hendrix of bluegrass banjo....

BTW, there's a great anecdote in Chuck Klosterman's Killing Yourself to Live, where's he talking with Jeff Tweedy, and they're discussing FM, and especially about Lindsay Buckingham's perfectionism.
It's a great read, and got me interested in Fleetwood Mac after finding they were more overplayed than Hotel California.

That particular performance of Big Love is what I point people to as proof of Lindsey's fingerpicking prowess.

In addition to the performance, I also think the composition itself is fantastic. That's the part that really floors me - Lindsey came up with the music, melding the various pieces of it together to create a brilliant piece of music. I can fingerpick fairly well, but I only wish I could write something half as good as that.

Another great read is Fleetwood: My Life and Adventures in Fleetwood Mac by Mick Fleetwood.

It's definitely a "warts and all" memoir, no punches pulled.

YES!  Came to say this, THANK YOU!  I've shown this video to people over the years to try and explain how unbeliveably great Buckingham is...his performance of this live is overwhelming.  For years, I thought it was overdubbed or two guitars to get that sound...nope.  Just brilliant.

I think you're right...I seem to remember seeing a behind-the-scenes look somewhere on how he plays the song live, and it essentially doubles some of the notes in spots.

But still...damn.

He has a rig rundown on YouTUBE. Not as minimal as Johnny Winters, but not anywhere near the amount of stuff a lot of guys use these days.

My wife dragged me to see Lindsey on his recent solo tour and I'm definitely a fan now. That man can play the hell out his guitars.

/bonus: he was staying at the same hotel we were and he chatted with us for a few minutes the next morning
