About Lindsey Buckingham

One of the chief creative forces of Fleetwood Mac during their popular peak in the 1970s and '80s, Lindsey Buckingham is a distinctive guitarist and singer/songwriter who developed an idiosyncratic blend of pop, folk, and rock. His sonic signatures of fleet finger-picked guitar, candied harmonies, and intricate productions propelled Fleetwood Mac, Rumours, and Tusk to the top of the charts. Buckingham launched his solo career in 1981 with Law and Order, and he'd return to it whenever he was on the outs with Fleetwood Mac. His first break from the band came after the 1987 release of Tango in the Night. He reunited with Fleetwood Mac in the late '90s and maintained regular solo projects alongside Mac tours until 2018, when he left the group under acrimonious circumstances. Buckingham rallied, releasing an eponymous album in 2021 that played into all his musical strengths.
