Lindsey Buckingham Interview Preview Pt 4

(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 have been teasing you with one question and answer from the interview, here is today's final installment but you can skip reading it here because you can now read the full interview! Today Morley asks Lindsey about the music direction of the new album:

antiMusic: Your last record Under the Skin was largely an acoustic record. Gift of Screws has you rocking out more. Was it purposeful to divide the two records into these collections or was this just the material that presented itself to you in both instances?

Lindsey: Well you know, I did have a very specific idea last time of just taking the finger style and applying production values to it and it was as much about what I DIDN'T do, you know, the lead, and probably very little bass or drums. I was kind of was thinking I was going to approach Gift of Screws in a similar way, maybe stepping it up a little bit. But I certainly didn't think it was going to end up rocking as much as it does. It's just...it's basically what you said you know, you start working on something and you have to sort of be open to where the work sort of wants to lead you, and in fact it seemed to want to lead me in a direction where it was sort of hitting the wall rocking so, you know, I sort of let it do that.

Enough teasing, you've been waiting all week to read the full interview and now you can. All you have to do is click - right here!
