Lindsey Buckingham Information Continued
Lindsey Buckingham never took guitar lessons and does not read music. By age 13, he became interested in folk music and, influenced by banjo methods, practiced the fingerpicking styles of The Kingston Trio. At 15 he joined a small folk group providing vocals and guitar work.
Lindsey Buckingham met Stevie Nicks while they both attended Menlo Atherton High School, and later formed The Fritz Rabyne Memorial Band with her and three other friends. The pair eventually broke off from the band forming the duo, Buckingham Nicks. After struggling for a few years with record sales, the duo joined the band Fleetwood Mac, which was their key to success.
In 1981, Lindsey Buckingham released his first solo album Law and Order, playing nearly every instrument and featuring guest appearances by bandmates Mick Fleetwood and Christine McVie. The album spawned the hit single "Trouble" which reached #9 on the US Charts. Two years later he wrote and performed the songs "Holiday Road" and "Dancin' Across the U.S.A." for the film National Lampoon's Vacation. "Holiday Road" was released, but reached only #82 on the Billboard's Hot 100.
