On this day in 1949, the world was blessed with the birth of the rock and roll guitar god, Lindsey Buckingham!

Lindsey Buckingham’s music has made my life so much richer, as a part of Buckingham Nicks, Fleetwood Mac and with his solo career.  I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Lindsey Buckingham live both solo and as a part of Fleetwood Mac and those experiences make you realize that he is a creative genius that can sing and play guitar with the best of them.

For those that have any doubts, you MUST see his performance of the Fleetwood Mac classic “I’m So Afraid.”  The man tells a story with a 6-minute guitar solo (and please note that he does not use a guitar pick.  He plays with his bare fingernails!)  that will leave you breathless.

Happy Birthday Lindsey!
