Lindsey Buckingham Interview Preview Pt I

(antiMusic) When you manage to snag an interview with an artist who's most popular album has sold as many copies as The Beatles biggest selling album in the U.S., and overall has sold more albums than such icons as Bob Dylan, Bon Jovi, Prince, Queen and even Eminem and Britney Spears, you can't just run the interview. It calls for something special. So this week we are forgoing Singled Out! so we can preview Morley's interview with Lindsey Buckingham. Lindsey has released a wealth of music over the years as both a solo artist and as one of key songwriters and voices of Fleetwood Mac. He just released his latest effort, Gift of Screws, and Morley managed to get him on the phone to discuss the effort as well as other interesting topics. So each day this week we will be teasing you with one question and answer from the interview before we post the full thing on Friday! Today Morley asks Lindsey about the title to his new album:

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!
