Seeds We Sow:
Chatting with Lindsey Buckingham
A Conversation with Lindsey Buckingham
Mike Ragogna: Lindsey, how are you?
Lindsey Buckingham: Good. How are you?
MR: I'm doing fine. It's an honor to speak to you, sir.
LB: Well, thank you. I appreciate that.
MR: I've been a fan since your first solo album, Law And Order. Of course, I loved the Fleetwood Mac material, but I've really enjoyed all of your solo material as well.
LB: Well, that's nice to hear. We do our best, what can I say?
MR: Lindsey, you're on your sixth solo album now, Seeds We Sow. No surprise, you produced, mixed, and performed virtually every note. Oh, and you wrote almost all the songs.
LB: Well, pretty much. There's a Rolling Stones cover at the end, "She Smiled Sweetly," and I co-wrote one of the songs, "Stars Are Crazy." My road band is also playing on one of the songs, but yes, for all intents and purposes, I did. I must have control issues, yes?
MR: (laughs) Nah, you're just über-creative. "Stars Are Crazy" is one of my favorite tracks on this new album. Who co-wrote that with you?
