Star Tribune Entertainment

Before launching into a fiery cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” during her set Saturday at Somerset Amphitheater, Brandi Carlile coolly mentioned that she’d met Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham a week earlier. Apparently, she wasn’t so nonchalant, however, about running into Saturday’s headliners, the Avett Brothers, backstage before taking the stage. “I said, ‘We must read a lot of the same books,’ ” Carlile goofily recalled. And then she got all geeked out: “I’ve been obsessing over your lyrics for the past year.” Wonder if this means she’ll be covering “Kick Drum Heart” or some other Avetts tune next week.

Rolling Stone: USC Music School Teaches the Art of Making a Pop Hit

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/ne...#ixzz2YTM7ieTX

Beyond their performance work, students also get to see weekly guest speakers such as Ballard and Fleetwood Mac's Lindsay Buckingham. Perhaps most importantly, the program's location gives them a chance to play for more than just their fellow students – one reason that many pop program students opted for USC over specialized schools such as Boston's Berklee College of Music.

there's an old thread somewhere in this forum, and there was a recording of most of that session. just do a search. maybe Lindsey at USC or something like that.

it was in jan or feb 2012, his guitars were still in the container being shipped back from the ill-fated UK/Ire tour... i think he played Big Love and another song and there was something controversial at the time that he said, i think it was about june 2012 being to late to make up the UK solo tour.

i think he was there because Walfredo's niece or somebody was going to that school.

[I think Lindsey was born to a well-to-do family, rather than millionaire rich]

Rock Stars Who Were Born Rich by Michael Gallucci, Ultimate Classic Rock

Lindsey Buckingham

Before he hooked up with Stevie Nicks in Los Angeles for a singer-songwriter duo that would eventually transform Fleetwood Mac from lumbering British blues band into world-dominating rock stars, Lindsey Buckingham spent his time in a California suburb. His dad owned a successful coffee plant. Young Lindsey, along with his two older brothers, spent a good deal of his free time swimming competitively. In high school, he became a star water-polo player, which says all you need to know about his pre-Mac finances.

I'm not sure if this is the correct thread for my little tidbit, but Time Precious Time was played before the lights went out at The Postal Service concert I'm at!

That's great. I bet you were the only one in the audience who knew it.

[Ha. The comment is funny and fair enough, but why do people always assume that Lindsey is confused about his solo record sales? I mean, maybe he was in the eighties, but surely he hasn't been in the last 20 years]


Excerpt from a review of Sam Phillips

http://thecommonills.blogspot.com/20...lly-comes.html

That's Sam Phillips oft repeated chorus to "When I'm Alone." It's cloying and really requires a ukulele. In fact, you can easily imagine Lindsey Buckingham both writing and recording the song (convinced he'd 'connected) but he'd probably record the uklele with an echo chamber and then play the recording backwards while multi-tracking his chipmunk vocals and then, finally, be perplexed that he'd yet again made a solo recording that failed to sell.

[The writer doesn't elaborate, about why he likes LB solo better. It's just the way he ended his article on Haim.]

http://www.uncut.co.uk/blog/wild-mer.../the-haim-wars

I’m not crazy about Haim, and I really should have better things to do than feel self-reflexively guilty about it. Now let me tell you about how much I prefer Lindsey Buckingham solo to Fleetwood Mac…

So, the Bottle Rockets apparently have a song called:

15. This Is What It Sounds Like When You’re Listening to Lindsey Buckingham and Thinking of Your Friend’s Girlfriend at the Same Time (1994 Acoustic Demo)

Here's a write up on their music (but not that particular song) here.

[This guy was tearing apart a Kevin Smith interview and Kevin was trying to put together a horror movie called Tusk (a walrus tusk, not having anything to do with FM) and in attacking Kevin this commenter made a LB reference]

http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com/2013/10/...8Film+Drunk%29

You’re kidding, right? This keeps going? This isn’t a cliffhanger, Kevin. The audience is a tangle of shattered limbs at the bottom of the ravine by now, and you’re just poking us with your typing wand to see if we’re still listening.

But good luck with TUSK. I’m sure it won’t turn into something you dangle in front of your fans for the indefinite future. And don’t worry about the second mortgage, either. Because what are the odds that a project called TUSK will turn into an exorbitantly expensive artistic disaster?

BONUS LINDSEY BUCKINGHAM BURN! (*shreds guitar for what seems like forever*)
