FLEETWOOD MAC'S LINDSEY BUCKINGHAM: 'I ACTUALLY LIKE TAYLOR SWIFT'
'I do admire her on some levels'
Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham likes Taylor Swift
Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham has admitted he "likes" and "admires" pop sensation Taylor Swift.
Speaking at the University of South California's Bovard Auditorium in Los Angeles on Wednesday (April 29) he was asked which current artist has the "staying power" of Fleetwood Mac and went for Swift.
Explaining his reasoning, Buckingham said: "I actually like Taylor Swift. I admire what she's been able to do on some levels... There are a ton of really good people out there. I don’t think music is any less vital (these days). I think it’s a little harder to churn out interfaces with sociology. When I was a kid and Elvis Presley broke through to a middle class, white audience, it was a sociological phenomenon that lasted through the Beatles and even a bit through Fleetwood Mac."
Meanwhile, Fleetwood Mac are currently gearing up for a string of huge UK shows, as well as headlining 2015's Isle Of Wight Festival. Upcoming tour dates are below. For tickets and information, visit here.

Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham says he ‘likes and admires’ Taylor Swift
Buckingham made the comment at an event in Los Angeles on Wednesday (April 29)
Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham has spoken of his admiration for pop singer Taylor Swift.
Buckingham, whose band kick off their 2015 European tour later this month, was speaking at the University of South California’s Bovard Auditorium in Los Angeles on Wednesday (April 29). According to Billboard, when asked by the night’s audience what current artist has the “staying power” of his group, Buckingham opted for Swift.
“I actually like Taylor Swift,” Buckingham said in response. “I admire what she’s been able to do on some levels… There are a ton of really good people out there [though]. I don’t think music is any less vital [these days]. I think it’s a little harder to churn out interfaces with sociology. When I was a kid and Elvis Presley broke through to a middle class, white audience, it was a sociological phenomenon that lasted through the Beatles and even a bit through Fleetwood Mac.
Fleetwood Mac will kick off their European tour with a series of UK and Ireland dates. The recently-reunited band will start things off with back-to-back shows at London’s 02 Arena at the end of May, before travelling to Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow, Dublin and Leeds during June. The band will also headline The Isle Of Wight Festival in June, their only UK festival appearance of 2015.
