Happy Birthday to Lindsey Buckingham!



^Look at dem curls! So cute :)
Lindsey Buckingham turns the big 6-0 today!! Fleetwood Mac kicks off their greatest hits tour (round two) overseas in a couple weeks. I know I'm completely biased when I say this, but LB is soooo underrated as a guitarist. This little blog post pretty much sums up my feelings on the subject: LB Underrated

I'mma leave you with some muy fantastico guitar work by Linds:

1976


What's not to love? (Besides all the abusiveness. But there's classes for that kind of stuff! Oh, and the fact that you'd never be able to completely trust him... his poor wife. She is one trusting lady.)

And from the first night of the current tour back in March -- check out this massive solo:


The boy's still got it, wouldn't ya say?

I remember a record I had in college--"Buckingham Nicks." Wow--I haven't thought of that in ages! At 60, Lindsey is one of the younger rockers of that era. "Even children get older.."

I saw Fleetwood Mac in New Orleans back in June. Big Love was one of the best parts of the concert. Just Lindsey and his guitar, it was so amazing it was hard to breathe. Underrated indeed!

I've got a rip from vinyl to mp3 of the Buckingham/Nicks album. It's pretty good.

Buckingham's still got it.
