Q & A: Delta Rae to play The Cabot in Beverly

WL: Who are some of the bandís influences?
BH: Artists like James Taylor, Joni Mitchell and Cat Stevens really popularized folk music and they have influenced our music. ... There are a lot of Motown and gospel influences, as well. Then thereís the groups like Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles or Bonnie Raitt. We really run the gamut. And weíre fortunate that we happened to come up when Mumford & Sons, Florence & The Machine, Lady Antebellum and Little Big Town are popular. We felt like there was still room for us.

WL: How did the collaboration with Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac come about?
BH: We were on the road trying to figure out this song, ďIf I Loved YouĒ so we could record it for our EP. We were out in L.A. at this studio ... and apparently, Lindsey had been there working the day before. ... He came in, grabbed an instrument called a gryphon and just started strumming. So this entire time, we had been looking for what this song needed. Apparently, it needed Lindsey Buckingham playing a 12-string gryphon.

Throwback Thursday: Lindsey Buckingham Plays His Fleetwood Mac Hit ĎBig Loveí


Fleetwood Mac has survived more personnel changes and traumas through the years than almost any major band you can think of, but the latest may be the most devastating cut at all. A few months ago, the group fired Lindsey Buckingham, who has been the creative driving force behind the group for more than 40 years. Buckingham wrote many of the bandís biggest hits, was the main musical arranger for the group, an excellent lead and harmony singer, a studio wizard who helped define their modern aesthetic, and also one of the more skilled and imaginative (and underrated) guitarists in rock. Now, I understand that there are valid (commercial) reasons why the group would take this step, and I have absolutely no doubt that the talented replacements who have been brought in to fill his shoes for the groupís upcoming touróNeil Finn of Crowded House and Mike Campbell of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakersówill be able to cover Buckinghamís vocal and instrumental parts. But what they cannot replicate is his deep soulfulness and his quirky, compelling, just-this-side-of-insane spirit. If Stevie Nicks was the airy, wispy enchantress, and Christine McVie the more grounded and world-wise songbird (and Iím a huge fan of both!), Lindsey was the barely controllable whirlwind at the center who held everything together while simultaneously striving to blow our expectations apart. For my money, heís the guy who made it all work.

So, to honor the-one-who-is-being-left-behind, hereís Lindsey Buckingham playing a solo acoustic (nylon-string!) version of a song he wrote for Fleetwood Macís 1987 album, Tango in the Night, ďBig Love.Ē The single of that tune hit the Top Ten in both the U.S. (where it was also a dance hit) and the UK. óBlair Jackson

Randomly caught this today. Probably has been posted before...
This was a Kingston Trio & Friends Reunion and Lindsey Buckingham joins John Stewart on stage to sing The Spinning of the World.

Introduction by John Stewart @ 54:02
This link should start right at the right part.
