Fleetwood Mac Lead Guitarist Would Love to Record a New Album with the Band
Rolling Stone reports that guitarist Lindsey Buckingham has stated he would love to record a new Fleetwood Mac album.
The band recently announced they are going to start a reunion tour next April. Singer Stevie Nicks hinted that they could return to the studio.
In the Rolling Stone interview, Buckingham said he’d like to work on new material with the band, though he did say that any recording plans are currently on the “back burner”.
Regarding recording a new studio album, Buckingham stated: “Absolutely, absolutely I would. In fact, about six, seven months ago, John [McVie] and Mick [Fleetwood] were over here and we actually cut some tracks, and we did enough for maybe half an album. But you gotta get Stevie on board with that, and at the time, she was really quite caught up in what she was doing. But I would love to do that because John and Mick were playing their asses off.”
Regarding the 2013 reunion shows, he said: “The last eight or nine years, I’ve had a lot of growth. I sort of caught up on the need to explore the more esoteric side of the palette. Fleetwood Mac is gonna start rehearsing probably the beginning of February and I’m actually looking forward to it. I miss those guys.”
