Everything Comes


Lindsey Buckingham is like the rest of us a soul

He has been with Fleetwood Mac and done solo work

For decades.

I venerate him because of signs in his work that he is a kindred spirit

It’s not just my late 1940s Martin guitar that sits always in view.

It’s not the fact that I began fingerpicking and never stopped pickless performing.

It’s some of his lyrics that tell a clearly unfinished tale

Eyes of the World is one

Pray for Guidance From Above is another

Add in the inventiveness of his segues

It is likely there are others but I know none but Lindsey

As the only figure in pop music who shares my lonely

Proclivity for expressions that transcend the boundaries of popness and and Religion

These premises are the reason I founded Persephone Music and created three albums and other items including The Story of Job

And toured the North East performing my folk oratorio New Rain

Lindsey has had the inestimable privilege of having a decent studio at home almost forever. He has a genius for effects and the ability to integrate them into usable musical events.

Fleetwood Mac owes him enduring thanks for having taken the lyrics of his colleagues and created arrangements that have made them standards.

And for producing most of Fleetwood Mac’s major albums including Rumors and Tusk.

I wake up in the dawn and daydream about a collaboration in which my role would be very small and remote, since I have no intention or capacity to move from where I am looking out over Broadway.

I would merely give him what I have created with the thought that he might go further with his lyrics that I have already referenced.
