The Elusive Lindsey Buckingham Spotted at Beverly Hills Deli

So this is where he's been hiding out!
Pre-occupied by something ahead of him... Alex Miles snapped a pic (and posted it to Twitter) of Lindsey and his wife Kristen sitting in Nate 'N Al's Delicatessen in Beverly Hills today.... at what looks like breakfast or brunch.

Good to see him out and about!

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 !!!

Stevie Nicks. She was never the next anything. She was the first and only Stevie Nicks - Shailene Woodley

This particular interview with Shailene Woodley has been floating around for the last week or so. I love what she said here about Stevie.  It's so true... "She never was the next anything...she was the first and only Stevie Nicks."

Full interview outtakes from Vanity Fair

She really, really wants to play Steve Nicks some day. 
“Her music has sort of been throughout my entire life. [Fleetwood Mac] was always a part of something I listened to. 

And I also just love sort of who she is and that there’s no one in the world like Stevie Nicks. She was never the next anything. She was the first and only Stevie Nicks, and she was brave and she was strong, and she was her, no matter what that meant. She was her.”

Shailene previously expressed interest in Stevie being the character she'd most like to play in this post from back in March with NPR.

MS MAC IS BACK Interview with Fleetwood Mac's Christine McVie via BASCA The Works Magazine

It's here... Christine McVie's interview with The Works, the magazine of BASCA - British Academy of Songwriters, Composers & Authors. 

Interview by Darren Haynes

Check out the interview in The Works Magazine online at

Really great interview.  Christine talks about her Lifetime Achievement Award she received... About songwriting, collaborating with Lindsey Buckingham. The new Fleetwood Mac album, co-writing with Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac's World Tour. Here's one nugget of info for the UK:

"According to Christine McVie (with a caveat to stand corrected if she's wrong) the band is booked to add a European leg to their world tour. This will coincide with the release of the new album.

I think we're doing four nights at The O2 around Spring time next year, you know April around that kind of date. If I'm wrong on that, then I'm gonna get hung drawn and quartered".

Thank you to Darren Haynes and BASCA for including in your interview piece.

Here is the audio from the presentation of Christine's Lifetime Achievement Award at the Ivors. The link is part of the interview piece in The Works magazine... I missed it the first time around.

Happy Birthday Mick Fleetwood - Born on this day in 1947

ON THIS DAY: Fleetwood Mac's "Rumours" and "Dreams" both No.1 on U.S. Billboard Charts

On June 18, 1977 "Dreams" the second single released from "Rumours" topped Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart in it's 10th week of release.

The track written by Stevie Nicks, debuted on the Hot 100 on April 16, 1977 and spent 19 weeks in total on the chart logging 7 weeks in the top 10 and 4 weeks in the top 5. This is Fleetwood Mac's only No.1 single in the U.S. 

While "Dreams" topped the singles chart, the album "Rumours" was firmly sitting at No.1 for a 7th non-consecutive week. The week following "Dreams" reaching the No.1 position, "Rumours" was certified 3x platinum in the U.S. signifying shipments of 3 million units. This is massive for an album released only 4 months prior. Within a year, "Rumours" would sell 8.2 million copies in the U.S. and would go on to eventually be certified 19 x platinum in the U.S. by the RIAA where it stands today. Worldwide sales are reported to be over 45 million.
