With Fleetwood Mac back on the road and playing new material for the first time in a decade, fans have reason to hope that the group's on-and-off momentum over the past few years might regain some measure of consistency. Those hopes should be reinforced by comments Lindsey Buckingham made in a recent interview with 'Rolling Stone.'
It's a little weird and unseemly, given how long ago it all went down, but the behind-the-scenes breakups that plagued (and perhaps fueled) Fleetwood Mac's classic 'Rumours' album remain a topic of intense fascination for many -- which is why Stevie Nicks delved once more into the end of her affair with Lindsey Buckingham during a recent sit-down with Oprah Winfrey.
Graham Parker and the Rumour played the Roxy in Los Angeles for the first time in 30 years on Wednesday night (Dec. 12), headlining a three-act 'This is 40' soundtrack release party. After shorter sets by Ryan Adams and Lindsey Buckingham, Parker's band began a 22-song set that included songs from 'Howlin' Wind (1976)' through 'Three Chords Good' (2012).
Lindsey Buckingham has been on a productive tear in recent years, releasing three solo albums since 2006 including this year's highly regarded 'Seeds We Sow.' Prior to 2006, there was a noticeable drought of solo material from the veteran singer-songwriter, whose last solo album 'Out Of The Cradle' had been been released in 1992.
