Default Lindsey features in new UK magazine UNCUT

Hello all, there's going to be an interview with Lindsey in the new edition of the UK magazine, UNCUT. It's not out over here until Thursday, but the cover quote is interesting: "I have control issues!":

Could be good - apparently he brought up the subject of Fleetwood Mac first...

Here's some more from the interview:

https://www.uncut.co.uk/features/int...m-2021-132202/

"Lindsey Buckingham steps out into the afternoon heat of west Los Angeles. Surrounded by dogs, he takes the short walk across the yard from his home to his out-house studio.
“We’ve got way too many actually,” he explains. “We’ve got one miniature poodle, a miniature Australian shepherd, a white lab and two Pomeranians. Yeah, I think one is enough…”

Based around an old reel-to-reel tape machine, the studio appears to be a fairly primitive set-up – at least for a man of Buckingham’s wealth and reputation. But then, Lindsey Buckingham has always been one to confound expectations. He hasn’t used the studio much since 2018, when the 10 songs on his new, self-titled solo album – his first in a decade – were recorded. Back then, things were different. Buckingham’s heart was doing fine, Covid was unheard of, and he was still a member of Fleetwood Mac.
In fact, the subject of Buckingham’s departure from the group in 2018 – after he requested a delay to their upcoming tour so he could release his own album – comes up early in our conversation, after Buckingham himself raises it. It is, he explains, inexorably tied in with the origins of this new album.

“Once I’d been ousted from the band – which in itself was just so absurd after all the troubles we’d been through and managed to overcome for 40-plus years – I was poised to put the album out. Then I ended up having a bypass operation, so we had to kick it down the road a little further. And then the pandemic hit. So it’s been a sort of running gag, to have so many false starts.”

Here at last, post-Macxit, the Lindsey Buckingham album has many highlights – including the chiming, propulsive I Don’t Mind and the striking and experimental Power Down – that bring into focus Buckingham’s melodic gifts as well as his hunger for unconventional thinking.

“It’s just a one-man show, me playing and engineering,” he says. “It’s like painting. It does start to become a one-on-one, like with a canvas.”

A man with 5 dogs one day. A divorced loner the next.

I was just thinking, this must have been done while he and Kristen were still together. I can't wait to read this.

Indication that Lindsey’s mindset is largely album-followed-by-tour. Unlike his earliest solo days, he now seems to insist that an album must be followed by a tour: that you can’t do one without the other (although I think he has toured once or twice without an album, and certainly Fleetwood Mac does this). Otherwise, I don’t know why the sixteen-month pandemic should delay an album. He could have released music since 2018 as often as he felt the impulse, and then followed up with a tour highlighted by his latest recorded work whenever the theaters opened back up. It’s not as if he has hit singles on the nation’s radios. He produces a body of work — and at some point tours as its own discrete statement, mixing and matching from throughout his catalogue. I call it the Kate Bush model. Her last tour — her first in decades — consisted of catalogue choices plus two major long-form statements from Hounds of Love and Aerial. I don’t think Lindsey would have any trouble operating this way if he chose.

So the man has too many dogs and admits he has control issues.

He’s still the only member of the Rumours lineup to make new music. What he and Christine could do, given the chance!

Maybe the opening track "Scream" will be a symphony of barking dogs, in a misguided attempt to appeal to a wider audience who know him only from "Holiday Road."

It’s a brilliant interview, lots of honest and fascinating stuff about Stevie and the band, and the split. I’ll try and post some photos...

JFC...Let's push aside all the other usual Stevie bits...how about Christine:
"I'm sorry I didn't stand up for you, I just bought a house"

Christine could of said ANYTHING that would of been better than that. What a gut punch.

Yeah, she's not exactly a model friend to have.

I can't believe no one stuck up for him. What has happened to these people? At this point in their lives it should be about the art, not the money. They have forgotten everything that brought them together in 1997 for the Dance.

A very good interview. Pretty blunt- he's pulling no punches.
'I had so many peak moments in the show....'
'....I think she'd come of stage every night thinking she'd come in second'
