Lindsey Buckingham Biography Photos Wallpapers

Lindsey Adams Buckingham is an American guitarist, singer, composer and producer, most notable for being the guitarist and male lead singer of the musical group Fleetwood Mac from 1975 to 1987, and 1997 to existing working day. Aside from his tenure with Fleetwood Mac, Buckingham has also released six solo albums and three live albums. As a member of Fleetwood Mac, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998. In 2011, Buckingham was ranked 100th in Rolling Stone magazine’s 2011 record of “The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time”. In Fleetwood Mac’s heyday, Buckingham was known for his fingerpicking guitar flavor and wide vocal range as well as the famous (sometimes tense) chemistry between himself and former girlfriend and bandmate Stevie Nicks.

Unlike most rock guitarists, Buckingham does not play with a pick; alternatively, he picks the strings with his fingers and fingernails. Initially after joining Fleetwood Mac, Buckingham used a Gibson Les Paul. Before the band, a Fender Stratocaster was his main guitar, and was used on his 1st Fleetwood Mac album. In 1979, he worked with Rick Turner, owner of Renaissance Guitars to create the Model One. He has used it extensively since, both with Fleetwood Mac and for his solo efforts. He uses a Taylor Guitar 814ce for most of his acoustic performances and has also used an Ovation Celebrity in the past.

His influences include The Beach Boys and The Kingston Trio.

In an interview with Guitar World Acoustic Magazine, Buckingham said:

“I’ve always believed that you play to highlight the song, not to highlight the player. The song is all that matters. There are two ways you can decide on to go. You can try to be someone like Eddie Van Halen, who is a amazing guitar player, a virtuoso. Yet he doesn’t make good records because what he plays is totally missing in the context of this band’s music.

Then there are guitar players like Chet Atkins, who weren’t out there trying to show themselves off as guitar players per se, but were employing the guitar as a tool to make good records. I remember loving Chet’s work when I was a kid, but it was only later, when I really listened to his guitar parts, that I realized how much they were a part of the song’s fabric, and how much you’d be going ‘Oh, that song just isn’t working’ if they weren’t there. “
