Lindsey Buckingham Interview Preview Pt I
antiMusic: Gift of Screws. Where does the title come from and why did you decide to use this as the title track?
Lindsey: Well, it's not as rude as it sounds. It's actually from an Emily Dickenson poem. And I was just leafing through a notebook of her poems one day and I came across that and I had to read it a few times really to get…and .I hope I got it right…what she meant. But the way I took it was that you have to turn the screws of the press yourself to get the oil from the flower petals, to get the fragrance out. In other words, you can't just sit there and watch the flower grow and expect to come up with something from that. If you want to have something happen from the gifts that are around you, you've got to apply your own vision first of all and then your own love and your own effort. So anyway, that was kind of something I bought in to.
If you still haven't picked up Gift of Screws and need further convincing, would a 5 Star review sway you? While we wait for the next installment in the interview you can check out what Kevin Wierzbicki had to say about the album - right here!
