Hot Pick: An Intimate Evening with Lindsey Buckingham
by Beth Rankin
Beaumont Enterprise

He was ranked as one of Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Guitarists, has been inducted into the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame and on Sunday night, the former Fleetwood Mac member will bring his signature finger-pickin’ guitar style to the Lutcher. If we’re lucky, he’ll tell some juicy between-song anecdotes from his days of tumultuously dating Stevie Nicks.

ORANGE — A man, his music and an arsenal of guitars await this weekend.

American singer-songwriter, musician and member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Lindsey Buckingham will perform in concert at 8 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 19, at the Lutcher Theater. Tickets are $35-$65 and available at the box office, by phone at 409-886-5535 or online at

Buckingham, who will perform a special, one-man show Sunday night, is best known for his time as a member of Fleetwood Mac from 1975-19875 and again from 1997 to the present. Also, during this time, he has managed to release six solo albums and two live albums. This Sunday’s showcase will feature Buckingham performing solo with only his voice and an array of guitars to give the music life.

Throughout his 40 year music career as a member of British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac and a solo artist, Buckingham has been a part of some of the most notable songs in music history. He will be performing many of those and others at Sunday’s concert.

Pushing it to the Mac: Tribute CD reinvents Fleetwood
CD finds fresh magic with new interpretations of hits like 'Dreams,' 'Oh Well' and 'Rhiannon'
New York Daily News ★★★

Like the Bible, people can read into Fleetwood Mac whatever they want.
With a storied, 45-year history involving 16 musicians and seven key songwriters — each of whom had a turn at the helm through five distinct incarnations — there’s an uncommonly deep trove of material to interpret to your heart’s content.

Fleetwood tribute album is less than Mac-nificent
USA Today ★★1/2 (out of four)

USA Today 8/14
How do you bring fresh insights to some of the most accomplished, infectious pop recordings of the past 50 years? That's the main dilemma plaguing Just Tell Me That You Want Me, a new tribute album pairing mostly alt-pop artists with Fleetwood Mac songs.

17 Takes on Legacy of a Band
New York Times

“Just Tell Me That You Want Me: A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac”
With few exceptions, multi-artist tribute albums are irritatingly patchwork, too sympathetic or too perfunctory, overthought or underthought.

But here’s such a tribute album that might claim your attention for a little longer. “Just Tell Me That You Want Me,” with 17 tracks by 17 artists — mostly indie-ish, rock and electronic, many-striped, individually produced and organized into a whole by Randall Poster and Gelya Robb — has Fleetwood Mac as its subject. What’s the spirit there, exactly?

'Just Tell Me That You Want Me: A Tribute To Fleetwood Mac' (7 out of 10)
Each generation discovers the brooding magic of the Mac anew

Fleetwood Mac were always cool. Their recording sessions had more sexual tension than a book club reading of Fifty Shades Of Grey. The band members treated private jets like Boris Bikes. They tried to credit their dealer on an album sleeve. They recorded an album, 1977’s ‘Rumours’, that’s sold over 40million copies. Always, always cool.

Of ‘Just Tell Me That You Want Me’’s 17 tunes, only seven weren’t written by Stevie Nicks. Guitarist Lindsey Buckingham gets a couple of dedications as Tame Impala faithfully replicate ‘That’s All For Everyone’ with a psychedelic hue and The Crystal Ark take on ‘Tusk’, which fails to out-weird the original, which was recorded live with a marching band in an empty football stadium. Keyboardist Christine McVie is given some love from The New Pornographers, who make ‘Think About Me’ sound dirtier than it is.

'Tribute to Fleetwood Mac' album review
San Francisco Chronicle

The last thing the world needs is a Fleetwood Mac tribute album with a hand-drawn penguin on the cover staring back at us every time we order an iced caramel macchiato. Still, here it is: the Starbucks-sanctioned "Just Tell Me That You Want Me," which sees a diverse group of performers - young, old, indifferent - take on the hirsute songs of heartache and treachery that fueled the 1970s.

Just Tell Me That You Want Me 
A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac
The 1970s are long gone, but Fleetwood Mac’s influence lives on.
★★★ 3 stars
Washington Times

“Just Tell Me That You Want Me” pushes the band’s music into the 21st century by rounding up a dozen or so modern acts — including MGMT, Best Coast and Lykke Li — and asking them to put their own stamp on the group’s classics.

The album skates by on the strength of its diversity. There’s something jarring — and slightly fun — about hearing Miss Faithfull’s wizened croak immediately after the New Pornographers’ bright harmonies, and the disc’s stronger covers tend to carry the weaker ones.

Just Tell Me That You Want Me: A Tribute To Fleetwood Mac
This collection offers a beguiling mix of different takes on a timeless cannon of songs.

Fleetwood Mac’s influence on alternative music seems to be becoming ever greater as they are cited by innumerable musicians from across the musical spectrum. As well as a large number of name checks, 2012 has seen yet more Fleetwood Mac interest generated by the announcement that the group will reconvene for a 2013 tour. It is therefore an extremely apposite time for ‘Just Tell Me That You Want Me’, a tribute album recorded by a disparate mix of alternative musicians young and old to be released.

'Just Tell Me That You Want Me'

Even when Fleetwood Mac was one of the most popular bands in the world, its sound wasn’t always easy to pigeonhole. Hailed (and in some cases dismissed) as the epitome of laid-back SoCal soft rock in the mid-’70s, the Fleetwood Mac of Rumours and Tusk relied on three songwriters with differing visions. While Christine McVie delivered bright, AM-ready pop, Stevie Nicks served as McVie’s mystical, FM-after-midnight counterpart, and Lindsey Buckingham ranged toward the arty, trying to see if Brian Wilson, Donald Fagen, and David Byrne could co-exist within a song. And even before Buckingham and Nicks joined the band, Fleetwood Mac had Peter Green penning some of the fiercest blues-rock in a competitive English scene, and Danny Kirwan and Bob Welch (among others) filling in the gaps with solidly middle-of-the-road hippie soul.

So it’s not all that surprising that the Fleetwood Mac tribute album Just Tell Me That You Want Me fails to do justice to the diversity of the band’s output. Of the disc’s 17 tracks, 10 are Nicks songs, leaving only three by Green, two by Buckingham, and one each from McVie and Welch.

Just Tell Me That You Want Me: Tribute To Fleetwood Mac

The fact that the collection is a bit of a mess is a shame, but also a tribute to the band in its own way. I think of that line from "Storms", rendered here as a lovely, creaky lament by Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and Matt Sweeney, which rings true as ever: "I've never been a deep blue sea/ I've always been a storm."

Boston Globe

There have been several tribute albums to the classic UK-American rock band that is Fleetwood Mac, but this especially eclectic 17-track collection features a clutch of indie hipsters — and Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top — dipping deep into the Mac catalog (including the bluesy pre-Buckingham-Nicks era) and taking some interesting liberties with the source material.

It's a bit of a curiosity that in the past year or two, Fleetwood Mac has turned into a cornerstone of influence in indie-rock. Certainly many of those in their 30s grew up with their parents playing Rumours and Tusk, but 20-somethings today would be lucky to even have been born by the time Fleetwood Mac released the last of their first run Buckingham/Nicks-era albums, Tango In the Night.

Lindsey Buckingham, within arm's reach at One Eyed Jacks 8/18

Lindsey Buckingham
August 18th - New Orleans, LA (One Eyed Jacks)

The threadbare window dressing "An evening with" so-and-so is one of concert advertising's falsest modesties. Lindsey Buckingham, without opening act or accompaniment, within arm's reach at One Eyed Jacks, more than qualifies. As the delicate fulcrum of Fleetwood Mac's Californicating sequel — i.e., the one everyone knows — Buckingham wrote, arranged, produced and played an incredible spectrum of piercing guitar pop: gusty FM stalwarts ("Monday Morning," "Go Your Own Way"), dewy, sunlit diamond-cut gems ("Never Going Back Again," "I Don't Want To Know"), pre-Clintonian platitudes ("Don't Stop") and post-breakup, obsessive-compulsive thinkpieces (most of his work on Tusk). In Fleetwood Mac, his bracingly thin tenor and nimble fingerpicking accented Christine McVie's mauve soft rock and grounded the fanciful flights of division belle Stevie Nicks. On his six solo records, Buckingham has steadily shed all outside distractions, spinning understated webs using only those two marvels of sound; last year's self-released Seeds We Sow finds shelter in patches of acoustic sweetbrier and brittle vocal bramble. It's not exactly tall grass, but at age 62, it'll more than do. Tickets $60. — Noah Bonaparte Pais - Best of New Orleans

Photos & Review: Lindsey Buckingham Live in Orlando 8/7

AUGUST 7, 2012

Handsomely dressed in classic tight-fitting Levi's jeans with a black T-shirt and fashion-forward black leather jacket, the dashing and svelte sixty-two-year-old Buckingham took the stage shortly after 8pm. Without saying a word, the legendary guitarist approached the microphone and bowed his head graciously to the sell-out crowd amid a storm of thunderous applause as he broke into the show's opener, "Cast Away Dreams," from his 2006 album Under the Skin. 

 Despite the advertised implication to the contrary, this performance was anything but laid back. Even Buckingham's acoustic guitars were electrified hot rod models, and his passionate, high-energy delivery was more in line with that of a member of a mega-band performing at an "Enormo Dome" than a solo artist performing in a theater setting.
