Hey!

Are there any Lindsey Buckingham-fan here?

I am very touched by his passion on stage, ex. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPNGKZHRFSU

It was hard task to take over after the "Green"-era but he did it very succesfully.




Pardon my bad English

He is actually a very skilled guitarist... And yes he is very passionate on stage. Which is awesome! Not a big Fleetwood Mac fan but I think this guy is great.

You missed the whole era between the Green and Buckingham-Nicks eras with Danny Kirwan and Bob Welch. Bare Trees and Future Games were both pretty good albums, both with Kirwan and Welch. I know there were a few more with those guys, but I'm drawing a blank. That period of Fleetwood Mac is overlooked very often. Christine Perfect (later McVie) also joined the band at the time. It's not like they didn't have any success at this time either, so it's all the more wrong for this era of the band to be so seldomly acknowledged.

All that aside, Lindsey Buckingham is a damn good guitarist.

Never heard of that era to be honest with you, I guess I am to young to know =)

^ Well, I may be thirty now but I'm definitely not an old man. It's completely forgivable, because it's just never mentioned anywhere. I've told people who were at least twenty years my senior about all of this stuff. There's Fleetwood Mac fans out there that have no clue at all who Peter Green was, let alone Kirwan or Welch or even Jeremy Spencer. Speaking of Green, Danny Kirwan was on some Fleetwood Mac stuff before Green left, they've actually recorded together. I'd have to double check, but I think It might be the English Rose album. As for Jeremy Spencer, he was a big emulator that played with Green's Fleetwood Mac and Kirwan's during this in-between era too. I think Spencer left the band mid-tour to join a cult. (I really can't make this shit up).

Here's the Fleetwood Mac Wikipedia article. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fleetwood_Mac#Transitional_era_.281970.E2.80.931975.29)

Here's some stuff from that in-between (or transitional) period.

Bare Trees / Why (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFmSlBgxWbc) These are two seperate studio recordings from seperate albums that the youtuber put together.

Future Games (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXngmFw75r0)

Lay It All Down (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhKrA-Z68Cs) The "Moses" in the song title here is something the youtuber did, not the actual title.


Sorry for hi-jacking the thread, but I had to make sure everybody had the story straight on this one.

Back to Lindsey Buckingham. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rcsYa6jFRoY)
