many people, Fleetwood Mac is synonymous with one name: Stevie Nicks. And while
her talent as a singer, songwriter, and performer are undeniable.. there is another
name that comes to my mind... Lindsey Buckingham. This video is a spectacular
showcase of his prowess as a vocalist and musician.. and proves that he only gets
better with age. His voice, once high pitched and at times almost feminine, has
gained a deepness to it that does far greater justice to his songs than ever before.
Those people who only bought the CD are missing out on the best song of the set:
"Go Insane" (one of five songs not included on the CD). Originally a dance track
from his 1984 solo album of the same name, here it is stripped down to expose
the heartache that was once hidden behind catchy beats. It is just him and his
guitar and it will leave you breathless. Other stand out performances are "The
Chain", "I'm So Afraid", "Bleed to Love Her", "Big Love", and "Go Your Own Way".
It is easy to see why Buckingham's fans, and even many people who dismiss Fleetwood
Mac as pure pop, consider him to be one of the greatest and most underrated guitarists
alive today |
