Probably like a lot of people on here, I'm more a fan of the Peter Green era, fantastic stuff, but Buckingham can play man, and they aren't a shabby bunch of song writers, sometimes can be a bit overly easy listening for me, but can't deny they are a world class band, 'The Dance' is evidence of them still being able to perform to a high standard in their later years.
Anyone going to see them in Birmingham on 3rd November? I'm going and it'd be good to meet up with people at the bar. Especially at the NIA as you can buy 2 pint glasses there. Rockin!
Shame you can't make it, woulda been nice to have met up with a friendly face. I live in Rugby so Brum is only down the road for me.
And yep, you are on the money. It was me rockin out at Shine a Light on Broad street. Cracking night (from what I can remember) hahaaa
Rock on brothers and sisters!
Yeah I'm So Afraid is Lindsey's tour De Force. Your right,after his haunting,great lyrics. When they get to jamming,it really is a power trio. Absolute killer song.Quote
I saw them in Glasgow a week ago. I wasn't really expecting much. I knew Christine McVie wouldnt be there,and had heard that Stevie Nicks voice was shot. But my God, what a show. A beautiful mix of rockers interspersed with Nicks "torch songs". The highlights were numerous - but Landslide and I'm so afraid were probably the two that stood out the most for me. Plus they played Storms, which is probably my favourite Mac song. One thing that struck me is what a cooking BAND they are. The instrumental ending to Im so afraid sounded like a power trio. McVie and Fleetwood are an unbelievable rhythm section - and in Buckingham....Put it this way, I walked out of the venue convinced he is the greatest guitarist I have EVER seen perform (and I've seen a few).
All in all a fantastic, emotional performance. Catch em while you can.
Hi Simon and Logie - what cameras do you use and what settings. I've only ever once used my Canon EOS 450D at a gig - the Stones last night at O2 - and got great pix - sharp with good colour balance. But it's big and bulky and could be easily spotyted by security.
When I use a compact Lumix the shots always turn out a bit blurred or the subjects are blanched out because of harsh spotlights.
