Fritz Band Founder Q&A On Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham

Before Fleetwood Mac: Fritz Band Founder Q&A On Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham
By Mary Avila
Santa Monica Mirror

It is Fleetwood Mac’s 40th anniversary together as a band. How fitting it is that they are touring throughout North America and Europe for this occasion. Christine McVie is back with the band. Now, it is time to also say goodbye to Fleetwood Mac. They recently announced this is their last tour.

But, it was long before Fleetwood Mac, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks were in their first band. And the young man in High School back in 1967 who founded the band Fritz is Bob Aguirre. He recruited former band mate Javier Pacheco (they had played in a couple of bands previously) along with fellow senior classmates Lindsey, Jody Moreing, and her cousin Cal Roper to form a band to play the Senior Talent Assembly.

By 1968, Cal left for college, and was replaced by Brian Kane, and Jody quit to join another band. After a few failed attempts with other female vocalists, Stevie was asked to join. Now the band had all the pieces in place. Brian Kane (now on lead guitar, vocals), Javier Pacheco (keyboards, vocals), Bob Aguirre (drums), Lindsey Buckingham (now on bass, vocals), and Stevie Nicks (lead vocals, percussion)

Today, I have the honor of speaking with Bob Aguirre, whom has watched the musical journey and legacy for Lindsey and Stevie.

Hello Bob, first I want to thank you for this interview. You have quite a legacy as founder and drummer of Fritz. You also were with The Curtis Brothers, Dr. Hook, Buckingham and Nicks, and The Trailer Park Troubadours.

Never before seen Buckingham Nicks Album Cover outtake Photos @StevieNicks @Lndsybuckingham

These are simply gorgeous... They're small - but large enough that you can still appreciate them... All are outtakes from the Buckingham Nicks album cover shoot.  There have been a few outtakes from this photo shoot floating around over the years, but this is the first time I've seen photos where both Lindsey and Stevie have tops on! That's likely the blouse that Stevie spent all the money on for the photo shoot and it never made the cover.  Photos courtesy of thearenamaster on Tumblr

So here's the back story on these... Apparently these originated on ebay as negatives and with some clever photo swapping of some sort, they were turned into proper looking contact sheets.

From the ebay seller. And I might add, I find it kind of sad if Stevie and Lindsey don't own their own copies of these knowing that the photographer was Jimmy Wachtel, Waddy's brother.  If I were them, I'd buy them!

The winning bid was $15,000.00 !!!

Are we looking at the beginning of something special? You be the judge!

Lotus Mastering tweeted and posted to their Facebook page the following photo and message.... After which they made note on Facebook that they were "just preserving the goods, at this point." This may just very well be the beginning of getting this bad boy finally ready for re-release!  At least that's how I want to view this.

Lindsey Buckingham Interview WEDNESDAY in LA Times - Calendar

After Fleetwood Mac tour: Reissue of 'Buckingham Nicks'?
LA Times

Fleetwood Mac is headed down the home stretch of its 2013 tour, with only three shows remaining: Wednesday at Staples Center in L.A., Friday in San Diego and Saturday in Sacramento.

But 2013 represents a milestone of another kind for band members Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks: It’s the 40th anniversary of “Buckingham Nicks, ” the only album they put out as a duo before joining up with Fleetwood Mac in 1975.

That album never made the Billboard 200 album chart, but it’s prized among rock fans as an important moment in California rock history and in the story of Fleetwood Mac’s evolution from respected British blues-rock band to a transatlantic runaway success.

“Buckingham Nicks” remains out of print, but there’s momentum building not only for a reissue of the album on CD but also the a possibility of some performances to go with it.

“There has been some talk about finally getting that out on a CD,” Buckingham told Pop & Hiss when we caught up with him last week at a tour stop in Charlotte, N.C. (The full interview with Buckingham will appear Wednesday in Calendar.) “I think it really comes down to what we want to do with that format.

“Do we want to just release it and that’s it? Do we want to add some bonus tracks? What level of involvement do we take it to? There’s a market for just about anything we want to do, but we have not gotten there yet.  It’s something we need some clarity on.

“If it were me, I’d say let’s put a couple of bonus tracks on it, and do some dates. That would be something brand new,” Buckingham said. “The idea of just dropping it as a CD doesn’t quite underscores the gesture enough.”

Likewise, Nicks told Rolling Stone before the current Fleetwood Mac tour started that she’d be interested in reuniting the band she and Buckingham had in the early '70s, which included guitarist Waddy Wachtel, drummer Jim Keltner and bassist Jerry Scheff, and doing some shows this year or in 2014.

“These are dialogues we’ve had, but only in the hypothetical, and we have not come to any decisions about what we want to do,” Buckingham said. “And all these things will become clear. It’s all from the bottom up. These things tend to take on a life of their own.”

Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham sat for separate interviews with Yahoo! Preparing for Fleetwood Mac Attack in 2013

Stevie Nicks and 
Lindsey Buckingham Speak
(And Counter-Speak!)

By Chris Willman
Yahoo Music

The year 2013 will mark the 40th anniversary of the introduction of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks to the world—not as members of Fleetwood Mac, but as part of what we can think of as a prequel, their Buckingham/Nicks duo act. The timing may be coincidental, but there will be plenty of celebrating going on, as Fleetwood Mac heads out on the road for the first time in three years. Tickets just went on sale for a nine-week, 34-city tour that begins April 4 and includes stops at Madison Square Garden April 8 the Hollywood Bowl May 25.

Nicks and Buckingham sat for separate interviews with Yahoo!, and we were fascinated to find points of convergence on certain issues and divergence on others. For instance, they agree that they’re getting along better than they have in many years. They differ on why that is—but with these two, and the harmonic tension that has always played into fans’ fascination with Fleetwood Mac, would you want it any other way?

Buckingham put it this way, on the group’s cycles of coming apart and back together: “Unlike some groups like the Eagles who always seem to know what they want and —and they most of the time seem to want it at the same time, and there’s something to be admired about that—we are a group who clearly you could make a case for saying does not even belong being in the same group together. A group of people with our sensibilities can be seen as so different at times that you could say, ‘What are these guys doing in the same band?’ But it’s the synergy of that that makes it work. There’s also a far more political landscape that exists because of that.”

These so-called politics led to a dispute over which year this tour would take place, and whether there would be a new album to tour behind or not. But for fans who like product, there is the promise of two newly recorded singles, a Rumours deluxe reissue, and maybe even a Buckingham/Nicks reissue with a new song. And both Stevie and Lindsey sound energized by the prospect of getting out to play arenas again after their respective solo jaunts of the last two years.

Still, there were just enough differences in their takes on this latest iteration of Mac coming back together that we thought we’d present it as a “he said/she said.” May their fruitful near-harmoniousness never cease.


The original plan had been for Fleetwood Mac to hit the road in 2012. What happened? Mick Fleetwood went on record complaining that Nicks had stalled their plans by continuing her solo tour an extra year. She was not pleased about being called out for that.

“ I completely beat Mick up about that, because he was not thinking when he did that article (Playboy Article March, 2012). Mick knows more than anybody how loyal I am to Fleetwood Mac. When I went to do my solo career in 1981, I sat everybody down and said, ‘Listen, I am not leaving Fleetwood Mac ever. And you can believe me, that’s a promise. I am only doing a solo career because I have so many extra songs that I need another vehicle, so that when we come home and you guys all go off on these great big vacations, I’ll just go and work on a record and then I’ll go out and do a three-month tour, and then I’ll be ready when you start up again. I’m never going to be the one to break up this band, so don’t ever put that on me.’ And I have been true to my word through everything.”

“Yes, Fleetwood Mac was supposed to be going out last year and touring, and yes, Stevie’s reneging on that did cause a certain amount of frustration in the ranks. But you know, I don’t think there’s any way you can point fingers at anybody. We’ve all been ones to cause trouble at one time or another. And I would not begrudge her—nor did I begrudge her—following her bliss to the point of getting to 2013.”

“In May 2011 I released my solo record In Your Dreams, which is my heart, my favorite record I’ve ever done. I had a long talk with Mick in maybe October going into November 2011, and they really wanted to tour last year. I said no—no—for two reasons: ‘I believe that In Your Dreams deserves another year, because in this day and age of the music business being in such dire straits, as far as getting your record company to spend any money, I’m my own person who’s backing up this record. It’s not Warner Bros. So I’m going back out next year and I’m gonna tour all next year for In Your Dreams, and I will be available to Fleetwood Mac January 2013.’ And number two, in my opinion, there should always be three years between Fleetwood Mac tours. Because—as we have always been told by our managers, who are very creative—you should get out of the public eye. Because if you just saw us a year and a half ago, we’re not gonna be at the top of your priority list the summer of 2012. If you want to make your show an event, the best thing is to get out of the spotlight for three years. Now it’s the perfect harmonic convergence. And everybody now is definitely knowing that I was right. They always have to admit it somewhere down the line.”

Stevie Nicks: "plans are definitely underway to prep "Buckingham Nicks" for CD release"

Stevie Nicks feels positive that 1973's Buckingham Nicks, the sole joint album with then-lover Lindsey Buckingham will see a release next year. 

The pair's pre-Fleetwood Mac album, which has never been released on CD, celebrates it's 40th anniversary next September. Over the years, Buckingham Nicks has gained a legion of die-hard fans, who have sought out pristine vinyl pressings of the Polydor release for major money. A 30th anniversary release was tentatively scheduled back in 2003, but never materialized.

It was the album's closing number, "Frozen Love" that gained Mick Fleetwood's attention while scouting Los Angeles' Sound City recording studio. The album's producer, Keith Olsen, played the track as a demonstration of the studio's capabilities and hooked Fleetwood who soon asked Buckingham -- and by extension -- Nicks to join Fleetwood Mac. Two of the Buckingham Nicks tracks would be included on future albums -- Nicks' "Crystal" found a home on Fleetwood Mac's 1975 self-titled collection and a live version of "Don't Let Me Down Again" was featured on 1980's Fleetwood Mac Live.

Stevie Nicks told us that plans are definitely underway to prep their first Buckingham Nicks release on CD: "This is, the coming up year is the 40 years. So, what we're thinking is we might do something to celebrate the 40 years thing and we're going to try and put the record out. The only reason why it hasn't come out is because it kinda belongs to three different people and it's like owning a car, a third of a car. And everybody has to be on the same page and nobody has ever been on the same page. So we're hoping this year people will get on the same page and we can put it out since this is it's 40th."

We asked her if there's any chance for a few Buckingham Nicks shows to promote the new set: "Very possibly! Very possibly! 'Cause we. . . that's easy. Yeah."

Nicks Nixes Interview Footage on New Music with Buckingham

Lindsey Buckingham Talks Possible Nicks Reunion 
In new radio documentary by Pete Paphides, Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham says "I would love to work with Stevie [Nicks] again"
The Quietus

Less than 24 hours remain to listen to last weeks broadcast from BBC4 on "Follow-up Albums" featuring Fleetwood Mac's "Tusk".  Pete Paphides 3 part documentary on bands that made a splash with an album only to follow it up with a left turn.  Great piece on the band with new interviews from Lindsey and Stevie.

Catch it at the BBC4 website

The above headline grabbing headline from The Quietus article opens a topic that has come up again and again regarding the idea of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks reuniting as a duo (Buckingham Nicks).  It's a topic that's come up in the past, something the fan community would certainly welcome and what most people expect to happen if and when the Buckingham Nicks album ever sees the light of day on CD.  Their first and only album together from 1973 has never been released on CD.  Lindsey and Stevie both own the album have have the rights to do whatever they want with it.. and both have blamed each other for it not happening.  With the 40th anniversary (yes 40th, if you can believe that!) of the album approaching (2013). It would be the perfect opportunity to bring some attention to this really great album... Either re-release it as a stand alone, or record some new music together and release it as a double album, kind of a then and now... I think it would be cool!  Then do some live shows!

Anyway... the REALLY interesting part of this article is where Pete Paphide apparently confirms with The Quietus that portions of Stevie's interview regarding Lindsey working on new songs which he hoped the two of them could record together had been edited out of the interview footage by someone on Stevie's staff, who recorded the interview... Pete apparently also said that Lindsey was inspired to write the new music by the death of Stevie's mother whom he had known since both he and Stevie were teenagers.  Pete also said that Stevie was to meet up with Lindsey the day after their interview together.  What that meeting would have been about is unknown.  Could have been about the new music or the future of Fleetwood Mac.

"When we spoke to Paphides, he confirmed that when he interviewed Nicks for the programme (in a section that was never broadcast), she had mentioned that Buckingham had been working on some new songs, seemingly with a view to record them together. He had been inspired to do so after the death of Nicks' mother, whom he had known since he and Nicks got together as teenagers. Nicks was apparently due to meet Buckingham the day after Paphides' interview took place. The interview, Paphides explained, was recorded by one of Nicks' staff, and when it was sent back to him that section had been deleted."

Update: Lightning Strikes... Maybe Once... Maybe Twice...

This is serious! Dave Stewart spent Monday afternoon and evening in the studio recording Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham!! Through various Twitter sources, these two hooked up to collaborate on a song to be included on Stevie's new album.  Lindsey played guitar and sang really cool harmonies according to Dave who is producing, calling it a special song. [Buckingham Nicks track remake maybe?]

Oh. And just an FYI Dave, in case you were wondering, and if you could pass this along... We would like to see Buckingham Nicks remastered and released as a 2 disc set, one disc being the remastered original album the second disc being new songs from Lindsey and Stevie. Oh... And a tour to boot! See what you can do... K Thanks!

Follow Dave Stewart on Twitter:
Dave Stewart: "recording Lindsey and Stevie right now sounds great still like a young fresh Buckingham Nicks"

McGee on music: The pop partnership that reinvented Fleetwood Mac The musical pairing of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks reinvigorated Fleetwood Mac's sound, which continues to influence artists today. Are they due a resurgence?

This week, I received an email from Joe Cardamone of the Icarus Line regarding a new project he has been working on with Annie Hardy from Giant Drag. He included a demo of their song Lake of Fire, stating that "Fleetwood Mac is the new black". The track is fantastic. Joe and Annie have perfectly captured the vibe of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks in their pre-Fleetwood Mac days, when they were a folk-rock duo.

Musical partnerships are plentiful, but iconic partnerships are not. If you've not heard the Buckingham Nicks debut release, you really should as it helped define the Pacific coast FM pop sound of Fleetwood Mac.

The pop partnership that reinvented Fleetwood Mac

The musical pairing of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks reinvigorated Fleetwood Mac's sound, which continues to influence artists today. Are they due a resurgence?

This week, I received an email from Joe Cardamone of the Icarus Line regarding a new project he has been working on with Annie Hardy from Giant Drag. He included a demo of their song Lake of Fire, stating that "Fleetwood Mac is the new black". The track is fantastic. Joe and Annie have perfectly captured the vibe of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks in their pre-Fleetwood Mac days, when they were a folk-rock duo.

Musical partnerships are plentiful, but iconic partnerships are not. If you've not heard the Buckingham Nicks debut release, you really should as it helped define the Pacific coast FM pop sound of Fleetwood Mac. Both Buckingham and Nicks were prodigies of their producer Keith Olsen (a member of Music Machine and early production partner of Curt Boettcher). It was while Olsen was pitching for a job with Mick Fleetwood that he played him the Buckingham Nicks debut. Fleetwood was struck by their track Frozen Love and later invited the pair to join Fleetwood Mac, hence reinventing the band and their sound.

Buckingham introduced the California sound to a struggling Fleetwood Mac and the band ran with it. For me, the lynchpin of Fleetwood Mac wasn't original member Peter Green, who has somehow acquired the genius status of Syd Barrett or Skip Spence. The earlier, bluesier Peter Green recordings lack the essential buzz of Buckingham.

When I first got into Fleetwood Mac it was anathema. If you had to admit to liking them, it was only by praising Peter Green. But man, Rumours! What an album! Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham were world-class songwriters, and it was shocking the world wasn't listening in 1973. Even the tension between Nicks and Buckingham's romantic and songwriting relationship resulted in many Fleetwood Mac classics: The Chain, Go Your Own Way and Landslide. Their partnership provided the energy behind the epic Rumours – the second Fleetwood Mac album and one of the biggest-selling records of all time – and the focal point of their legendary live shows.

While they were recording the third Fleetwood Mac album, Tusk, Buckingham and Nicks's relationship disintegrated, but somehow this manifested into one of the most wilfully self-destructive albums since the Beastie Boys' Paul's Boutique or Sly and the Family Stone's There's a Riot Going On. Buckingham, now in love with punk and new wave, insisted they record in his house and, although not as successful as Rumours, it was a strange, coke-fuelled masterpiece.

Their influence reaches unlikely places. My friend Nick Laird-Clowes of the Dream Academy had Buckingham brought on as a producer for their second album Remembrance Days in 1987. He recounted how the sessions involved going down to Buckingham's LA mansion, skinning up and playing the Korgis' Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime.

Courtney Love, of course, worshipped Fleetwood Mac and, in particular, Stevie Nicks. Love was responsible for bringing the band back into the pantheon of cool in the early 90s, which culminated in the classic 1997 Nicks/Love joint interview in Spin magazine.

Love believes fervently that everyone should listen to Rumours before even thinking about picking up a guitar. And she's right. More recently, contemporary bands have been heading towards the Pacific Coast Highway with their music, be it new folk-rocker Nico Georis or even Love's still unreleased classic Nobody's Daughter (which sounds like her Noughties answer to Rumours). In a recent Pitchfork interview, Dave Portner of Animal Collective talked about his email exchanges with Buckingham and how the Fleetwood Mac sound was an influence on their latest album, Merriweather Post Pavilion.

Psychedelic west-coast rockers, Comets On Fire and Six Organs of Admittance have also credited the influence of Buckingham's guitar-style (over that of John Fahey). The more I think about it, Buckingham and Nicks's genius is Zelig-like, and they're seemingly everywhere. Between the guitar style of Buckingham and Nicks's gravely west coast blues voice, it is no wonder during swings and roundabouts of popular culture, music has come back to the Pacific-coast pop of Fleetwood Mac. And with Buckingham's recent statement that he intends to produce another album, plus the fact that the band are currently on the road, could 2009 see another resurgence of Fleetwood Mac? If it can produce another Rumours or Tusk, I say bring it on.

Buckingham Nicks sound became Fleetwood Mac’s sound

Eden Munro

Buckingham Nicks
Buckingham Nicks

Originally released: 1973 Lyndsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks are inextricably associated with Fleetwood Mac, having recorded and composed with the band since the group’s 1975 self-titled record.

(There have been periods away from the group, but both Buckingham and Nicks are currently back in the fold.)

Having drifted through numerous lineup changes since it’s inception in 1967 when founders guitarist Peter Green and drummer Mick Fleetwood splintered off from John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers—they were joined not long after by the group’s bassist, John McVie—the band had already moved from straightahead blues to a ‘70s rock direction, bolstered by a decent dose of pop melody as player’s joined and departed, bringing with them new influences.

But when Buckingham and Nicks joined the bad, the duo’s influence was immediate and powerful, as the Buckingham Nicks sound became Fleetwood Mac’s sound. That the duo brought a fully-formed soundscape to the band is evident upon listening to Buckingham Nicks’s sole LP, released two years previous to their joining Fleetwood Mac.

Buckingham Nicks "The Re-Issue Issue. Speaking with Lindsey Buckingham

Old album reissued?
Toronto Sun

Anyone who has followed the long musical and personal saga of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks knows that they made an excellent 1973 album, Buckingham Nicks, which was a commercial failure but has since regained cult status.

It was also re-issued in 1976 when the two hit it big after they joined Fleetwood Mac. However, it's never been released on CD, something Buckingham thinks could happen in the next couple of years with a possible tour behind it for the one-time lovers.

"If it is going to happen it would probably happen in the next two, three years," Buckingham said.

"It's sort of a symptom of the fact that the band spends long periods of time apart, that Stevie and I don't talk a lot, that people who are 'the handlers' tend to think that there will be an optimum time to do that that will coincide with a marketing plan."

Does Buckingham, now married with three kids, mean a tour with Nicks to support its CD release?

"That could certainly happen, that would be fun," said Buckingham, currently on his own solo tour and beginning rehearsals in January for a Fleetwood Mac tour.

"Do we have enough material? Yes, we do. It would be its own hook, the two of us up there, it would be this complete circular thing, bringing us back to where we were in 1974, which has a poetry all its own.

"But again, the people who think in terms of marketing are thinking, 'Okay, but we have to do it at a time when we can remaster it and bonus tracks and all of this kind of stuff.' I would just re-release it myself because it is what it is!"
