The fuck? Where are the major cities on the east coast!? Specifically New York City, Philadelphia or Washington D.C.? I'm in D.C. and could have easily gone to any.

I hope he has an album in gestation.

Not playing close to me, I'm just glad he's up and running again!

Mick Fleetwood recently did an interview where he said that he'd love to do a Fleetwood Mac Farewell tour, but that there is no chance Lindsey Buckingham would be a part of it. Which, as far as I'm concerned, makes the last tour they did with him, their farewell tour.

Agree as well. It's really sad that everyone can't put aside their differences for one last tour. I didn't see the last one with Neil Finn (as much as I love him) and Mike Campbell (great with Tom Petty). But I'm sorry, that is not Fleetwood Mac.

You'll notice he also skips Phoenix for Tuscon, Denver for Boulder, Los Angeles for Cajon, and all of Texas. It looks like he wanted to go to smaller cities.

That's EL Cajon, thank you.

And yeah, it's not a great place. But I might go to the show anyway!

It's the first city I lived in when I moved to San Diego back in the late 80s.

Did they steal that joke from Michael Kelso on That 70's Show, when he wanted to buy an El Camino? DSC have never been terribly original in their material...

Re: Lindsey Buckingham no longer in Fleetwood Mac

Did anyone end up buying this album? I finally got around to listening to it today. It continues in his tradition of solid albums going back to 1992's Out of the Cradle, which I think remains his best. (The only album of his I don't care for is his first solo venture, the unmelodic Law and Order.) This latest self-titled outing is probably his most consistent work, and I give it 4.5/5, but it lacks a really rousing standout track or two. The only song that I thought was close to not belonging because it wasn't good enough was "Swan Song", and the only one I found a shade better than the "fine" level of the others was "Blue Light". "Time" and "On the Wrong Side" just missed the cut in that regard.

As far as I'm concerned, Fleetwood Mac can rot. Several of Buckingham's songs are better than anything ever produced by the band.

I've yet to buy this one. I went on a weird stretch over the last few weeks where I listened to nothing but Out of the Cradle while driving, which was a lot.

Re: Lindsey Buckingham no longer in Fleetwood Mac

^Def worth buying, Kurtie, but not as good as that great album, imo, though some deem it even better. O.o.t.C., at 16 tracks, has several filler tracks, but then there's "Don't Look Down", "You Do or You Don't", "Turn It On", and "Countdown", which are all superior to anything on the current album.

the last Buckingham I got was the McVie collab, which I liked plenty but felt was mildly underwhelming. The thing about listening to Out of the Cradle exclusively for so long was that it brought me back to the times when I would listen to LPs and gradually come to like or respect most songs on an album because getting up to skip a track was too much trouble!

That said, I no longer feel there are any filler tracks on Out of the Cradle, they are all great, but just seem to come from 2 or 3 different albums: a great rock album, a wonderful classical guitar vanity album, and a work of genius pop album. I even love This is the Time and Wrong. Wrong is actually really deep, and funny, and it's great to feel Buckingham's anger during the solos on those rockers.

Re: Lindsey Buckingham no longer in Fleetwood Mac

Perhaps I should give it a fresh front-to-back listen. Actually, the two songs you cited are among those that, according to my personal music-rating log, I could have lived without, along with the three forgettable instrumentals and "Say We'll Meet Again".

I thought Buckingham/McVie was pretty good, but not up to the level of his solos. Same holds true for his 1973 collaboration with Nicks, which brought them to the attention of F.M. Let's face it, he's simply better off on his own, with his songwriting left undiluted by the input of lessers. At least, that's my stance. I have treasured all of his albums since Cradle, and, owing to a severe shortage of space on my CD racks, he's one of the only musicians remaining whose albums I buy outright, along with Bob Seger and Willie Nile. All of them are geezers.

Geezers have honed their craft!

I love Say We'll Meet Again and definitely used to Not Like the songs I mentioned. They still don't exactly fit, but dozens of listens have made me appreciate their construction etc.

Re: Lindsey Buckingham no longer in Fleetwood Mac

I forgot that Tom Cochrane is another musician whose albums I buy unquestioned, but his releases are few and far between nowadays.
