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

WL: Who are some of the band’s 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 there’s the groups like Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles or Bonnie Raitt. We really run the gamut. And we’re 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, “If I Loved You” 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 ‘Big Love’


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 band’s 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 group’s upcoming tour—Neil Finn of Crowded House and Mike Campbell of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers—will be able to cover Buckingham’s 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 I’m 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, he’s the guy who made it all work.

So, to honor the-one-who-is-being-left-behind, here’s Lindsey Buckingham playing a solo acoustic (nylon-string!) version of a song he wrote for Fleetwood Mac’s 1987 album, Tango in the Night, “Big Love.” The single of that tune hit the Top Ten in both the U.S. (where it was also a dance hit) and the UK. —Blair Jackson
