Musical minds still active: Lindsey Buckingham "Seeds We Sow"

Published by @Nickslive for Fleetwood Mac News and Reviews
Musical minds still active
Rock legends get creative in producing new and old material

Some veteran rock musicians - as Jim Messina and Hall of Fame member Dave Mason said in 2011 interviews with the Record - have stopped creating original music or releasing new records.

At least that's what they said. Why bother?

In the free-market Internet era, their material either gets stolen or it's subsumed in the vast mass of musical stuff available at the stroke of a computer key or two.

Still, some veteran musicians - twice the age that the Who's Peter Townshend was content with 46 years ago - kept creating in 2011. Some of them very impressively.
  • The Cars "Move Like This" 
  • Glen Campbell "Ghost on the Canvas" 
  • Jimmy Cliff "Sacred Fire" 
  • Garland Jeffreys "The King of In Between"
  • Lindsey Buckingham "Seeds We Sow": Known best for helping make Fleetwood Mac become a conquering force in the 1970s, Buckingham, 62, has released a series of quirky, inventive, imaginative solo albums that defy the Mac's commercial realities but satisfy his experimental urges and encyclopedic guitar stylings. Just like this one.
  • Paul Simon "So Beautiful or So What" 
  • Nick Lowe "The Old Magic"
