That’s basically what’s going on now: Everything is propaganda.

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.

Another, Away, Working

Lindsey Buckingham
Use, Tried, Certain

Trust, Learned, Confident

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
Time, Learning, Away

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
Life, Time, Good

Lindsey Buckingham
Time, Able, Taken

Lindsey Buckingham
Lessons, Scales

Lindsey Buckingham
Work, Embellish

I was playing a Fender Telecaster when I first joined.
Lindsey Buckingham
Playing, Joined, Fender

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
Quite, Bit, Level

Those 12 years, they were ambiguous at best.
Lindsey Buckingham
Best, Ambiguous

When I work alone, my process is like painting. With Fleetwood Mac, it’s more like movie making.
Lindsey Buckingham
Work, Alone, Making

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
Work, Easy, Weird

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
Help, While, Her

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
Time, Care, Making

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
Morning, Happy, Others

Lindsey Buckingham
Strength, Strong, Words

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
Great, Together, Takes

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
Good, Happy, Confidence

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
Politics, Point, Bit

Lindsey Buckingham
Life, Work, Alone

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
Freedom, Enough, Successful

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
Time, Work, Order

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, Mick, and Stevie.
Lindsey Buckingham
Time, Good, Having
