it was just not a very good environment to be in on a daily basis.
In many ways, this is the best time of my life.
- Lindsey Buckingham

 

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

That's the only way to do it.
Just like an actor.

everything from point A to point B,
and certainly there's a bit of politics involved,
so it's a different thing.

and I have two kids.
So there's some kind of good karma right now.

It's equally interesting on a musical level and as a soap opera.

Everything is propaganda.

With Fleetwood Mac, it's more like movie making.

to trust my instincts more.

They had certain things they thought were appropriate.
I tried to adapt as much as I could.
- Lindsey Buckingham

Maybe you paint over bits, and it starts to form its
own life and lead you off in a direction.
It becomes an intuitive, subconscious process.
- Lindsey Buckingham

Another thing that was unique about working on this
stuff was that I was engineering it.
I used many of the things I had learned while I was away from the band.
It sort of vindicated my decision to leave in '87.
- 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.
- Lindsey Buckingham

But by taking the time away, getting myself off the treadmill,
and just slowing down and learning, I felt I had so much more to give back.
And maybe that was something that needed to happen for all of us.
- 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.
- Lindsey Buckingham

This time, there were no drugs involved.
The hours were completely normal daytime hours.
I think we were able to appreciate the interplay,
where before we had taken it for granted.

After a couple of failed attempts, I came up with a
weird tuning where I was dropping the G string down
a step so that it became a seventh,
and it got me to a place where I could play all these figures fairly easily.
It was not an easy thing to work out.

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.

as were John and Christine.
By the time Rumours was being recorded,
things got worse in terms of psychology and drug use.

because I was doing that painting thing.
And they were happy to see that being done.
- 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.
- Lindsey Buckingham

they sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when darkness sets in their true beauty
is revealed only if there is a light from within.

The enlightened give thanks
for what most people take for granted.

Conventional people are roused to fury
by departure from convention,
largely because they regard such departure
as a criticism of themselves.

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.

Everything else is secondary.

those who see when they are shown,

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
- Marianne Williamson
