That's the only way to do it.
by 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.
- Lindsey Buckingham

I'm also married for the first time,
and I have two kids.
So there's some kind of good karma right now.
- Lindsey Buckingham

Even though I had pushed through the Tango album,
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

I just find things that work and embellish them.
- 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,

I didn't take lessons, and I don't know my scales.
- Lindsey Buckingham

They tried to get me to use a pick when I first joined the band.
They had certain things they thought were appropriate.
I tried to adapt as much as I could.
- Lindsey Buckingham

Ironically, that was quite a bit of the appeal of Rumours.
It's equally interesting on a musical level and as a soap opera.
- Lindsey Buckingham

Confounding people's expectations was a way to maintain integrity.
- Lindsey Buckingham

When I work alone, my process is like painting.
With Fleetwood Mac, it's more like movie making.
- Lindsey Buckingham

I also learned to be more confident,
to trust my instincts more.
- Lindsey Buckingham

I was playing a Fender Telecaster when I first joined.
- Lindsey Buckingham

The writing is all done, so it's all about verbalizing
everything from point A to point B,
and certainly there's a bit of politics involved,
so it's a different thing.
- Lindsey Buckingham

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

Years on, Christine and John still have a deep love for each other,
as do Stevie and I - we've been working together since I was 17.
- 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

I had to seal off my feelings about Stevie while seeing
her every day and having to help her,
too.
But you get on with it.
What was happening to the band was much bigger than any of that.
- Lindsey Buckingham

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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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

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

Some days I would be there at ten in the morning and
wouldn't leave till ten at night,
and the others would waltz in for a couple of hours and then leave,
because I was doing that painting thing.
And they were happy to see that being done.
- Lindsey Buckingham

When I work alone, it can be like dabbling with a canvas.
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

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

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.
- 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

You're only here for a short visit.
Don't hurry. Don't worry.
And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.

dance lightly with life,
and smile at the riddles of life,
knowing that life's only true lessons
are writ small in the margin.

Choose Inner Peace.

Take action as circumstances require,

Stop. Breathe deeply.
Close your eyes and breathe deeply again.
Then, and only then, take action -
from a peaceful heart.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

considering individual rights,

Life is NOT "Supposed to be Fair."
Know that there is no single way that life is "supposed" to be.
Demanding that life meet our expectations
is a sure fire recipe for a miserable existence.

to receiving whatever life throws at us -
with Gratitude. Have NO Expectations of life.

when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.

We have only this moment,
sparkling like a star in our hand -
and melting like a snowflake.

There are only two or three human stories,
and they go on repeating themselves as fiercely
as if they had never happened before.
- Willa Cather

Feeling sorry for yourself, and your present condition,
is not only a waste of energy
but the worst habit you could possibly have.

Just stop it. Seriously.
Whatever it is. Just stop it.
If only for an hour, a day, a week.
Stop doing it long enough to get a glimpse
of what the change would actually look like.

Find your balance and stand with it.
Find your song and sing it out.
Find your cadence and let it appear like a dance.
Find the questions that only you know how to ask and
The answers that you are content to not know.

the only star - of your own life show.
Everyone else is a bit player in the great drama of your life.

For some of us, the world appears to provide
only a fixed quantity of each resource -
a limited amount of food, of money,

inventiveness, and service that they contribute.
In this world-view, money that is spent
or given away returns multiplied.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

our only job is to move our doubting minds aside
and let the miracles flow.
