Cincinnati City Beat
By Brian Baker
There have been many Lindsey Buckinghams, none of them being the frequent guest on DeAndre Cole’s What Up with That. There’s the Buckingham who teamed with girlfriend Stevie Nicks on their ill-fated 1973 album, and the Buckingham who joined Fleetwood Mac in 1974, bringing Nicks along in the deal and transforming the British Blues-to-Pop outfit into a commercial juggernaut. There’s the Buckingham whose break-up with Nicks fueled the creative engine that drove 1977’s Rumours to platinum numbers, the Buckingham whose perfectionism and substance binges colored the schizophrenically wonderful Tusk, the Buckingham who left Fleetwood Mac, the one who came back and all the Buckinghams who have maintained a potent presence in the band ever since.
Then there are the solo Buckinghams, the early ones on the Fleetwoodiesque Law and Order and Go Insane and the introspective and vindictive Out of the Cradle, and the later ones from the husband and father; the acoustic Under the Skin, the long-delayed Gift of Screws and the new, self-released Seeds We Sow.
