Lindsey Buckingham Quotes / Quotations

Quotation of Lindsey Buckingham


All of my style came from listening to records.
Quotation of Lindsey Buckingham

Quotation of Lindsey Buckingham


It's really touching that we can come back after so long and care about making an album that says as much as this one does. And after all this time, we really do care about each other.
Quotation of Lindsey Buckingham


Leaving was a survival move for me.

Quotation of Lindsey Buckingham


Our most recent group album at the time, Tango in the Night (1987), was so difficult for all the wrong reasons, and I couldn't contemplate going on tour.

Quotation of Lindsey Buckingham


That's one strength that Stevie has. She's really not a strong instrumentalist in any way. Her instrument is her voice and her words. And it keeps her focused on the very center of that.
Quotation of Lindsey Buckingham


That's the only way to do it. Just like an actor. You can get a great performance if you do a bunch of takes and edit it. You find the moments and string them together.
Quotation of Lindsey Buckingham


The 12 years I was in Fleetwood Mac before were not particularly happy years. I was not in a very good place, psychologically, when I left. I didn't have a lot of confidence in what I was doing.

Quotation of Lindsey Buckingham

Quotation of Lindsey Buckingham


When Stevie and I joined the band, we were in the midst of breaking up, as were John and Christine. By the time Rumours was being recorded, things got worse in terms of psychology and drug use. It was a large exercise in denial - in order for me to get work done.
Quotation of Lindsey Buckingham


When you become successful on the level that Fleetwood Mac did, it gives you financial freedom, which should allow you to follow your impulses. But oddly enough, they become much harder to follow.

Quotation of Lindsey Buckingham

Quotation of Lindsey Buckingham


You know, I was never totally thrilled with being a Fleetwood Mac member, but surprisingly, I was having such a good time reuniting with John, Mick, and Stevie.
