Guitarist Lindsey Buckingham launched his career as a member of Fleetwood Mac, joining the band with Stevie Nicks in 1975. The guitarist became a key songwriter for the band and essentially its musical director, determining the sound that would drive forthcoming albums. Buckingham was determined that each release would carry a different sound, explaining the vastly divergent-sounding singles, such as "Monday Morning" to "Tusk" only two years later. That year the band released its eponymously titled album followed by Rumours in 1977, Tusk in 1979 and Mirage in 1982. He released the solo albums titled Law and Order in 1981 and Go Insane in 1984. After Fleetwood Mac's Tango in the Night album in 1987, Buckingham left the band to pursue his solo career. In 1992, he released Out of the Cradle. While five years might seem a long time for one LP, Buckingham also wrote for other artists during the time and contributed to the scores of numerous films. A decade after leaving the band, he united with them to release The Dance, followed by Say You Will in 2003. Another string of solo albums followed, including Under the Skin in 2006, Gift of Screws in 2008, Seeds We Sow in 2011 and One Man Show in 2012. His most recent album was Solo Anthology: The Best of Lindsey Buckingham in 2018.
Awards and Accolades
The guitarist has won two Grammys as a member of Fleetwood Mac. Two of the band's albums were also inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, and those were Fleetwood Mac (1975) and Rumours (1977). As guitarist for Fleetwood Mac, he scored three Top 10 Billboard hits, which were "Go Your Own Way" (No. 10), "Tusk" (No. 8) and "Big Love" (No. 5), and as a solo artist, he charted a Top 10 hit with "Trouble." He's also a philanthropist and received the inaugural MusiCares Person of the Year award for his support of MusiCares, a non-profit that provides financial, health and addiction services to the music community.
