Default "Lindsey Buckingham" on Saturday Night Live

They just did a little spoof on Lindsey. Some guy was interviewing "Lindsey" in a skit. If anybody saw it and has a few more details about it please tell me. I was so excited I didn't catch what it was about. Here I am, listening to the Paris show on youtube, typing on the Ledge, and SNL is on T.V. A girl can only handle so many fleetwood mac resources at a time.

Yep. Bill Hader (dressed in the standard black leather jacket, red shirt, jeans uniform) was hilarious playing Lindsey.

How random. This is very flattering. Now I think Lindsey is just as important as Sarah Palin.

The guy should have remained in character and danced like Lindsey at the end.

I'm happy that some writer on the show saw the Unleashed tour and remembered. Still, it's rather sad that red T is Lindsey's "costume."

Default Saturday Night Live

I looked briefly for an older thread on this, but didn't find one. Does anyone know why Lindsey Buckingham (portrayed by Bill Hader) is always a guest on the "What Up With That?" sketches? Is there some event that inspired this?

I think it's hilarious, and so random. He's on every one of them!

It's obvious that somebody on the writing staff is a Buckingham fan and is doing it to keep his name on the public's mind.

Perhaps there's some underlying message of under-appreciation? Or, like chilliD says, it could just be a Buckingham fan...and I think that's pretty cool.

Did you?

Because "'Lindsey Buckingham' on Saturday Night Live" is just a few threads under this one. Must have been a pretty brief search- LOLZ!

I did. I searched SNL - and got nothing. Try it yourself. LOLZ!

But in all seriousness, I did scan the first page of threads in addition to a SNL search - I was at work and busy and probably shouldn't have been posting, pardon me for not seeing it.

From an interview with Colin Jost, Boston Globe, July 25, 2013

http://www.bostonglobe.com/arts/thea...HEJ/story.html

Q. I guess the most important question is, who’s going to play Lindsey Buckingham on “What’s Up With That?”

A. Oh my God, I don’t know. I think we might have to just get the real Lindsey Buckingham.
