Biography

An enormously gifted if mercurial presence in American rock-n-roll since the early 1970s, Lindsey Buckingham rose to fame as a key figure in the stratospheric ascent of Fleetwood Mac on the strength of the album Rumours (1977). Along with then-girlfriend Stevie Nicks, Buckingham's intensely personal lyrics and precise, finger-picked guitar work on songs like "Go Your Own Way" and "The Chain" helped to make the album one of the most popular rock releases of the decade, if not the late 20th century. But behind the record's sun-dappled harmonies and pop-rock groove were lyrics about longing and loss, fueled in part by the discordant breakup of Buckingham and Nicks' relationship. He would soon attempt to distance himself from the group's constant romance- and drug-fueled turmoil through a solo career that hinged on more modern sounding material like the electronic-driven "Go Insane" and "Holiday Road" that earned modest acclaim. Buckingham severed ties with Fleetwood Mac in 1987, only to return as a full-fledged member in 1997 for a wildly popular series of reunion tours and albums. The exposure afforded by the reunited Mac eventually boosted his solo career, which broke into the Top 50 in the new millennium. Ever restless and inventive with his music, Buckingham was able to reconcile his classic work with Fleetwood Mac with his solo ambitions, thus preserving his status as one of rock's most talented and dedicated figures.
