Lindsey Buckingham coming to the Capitol Theatre in Clearwater
Let us hope that this news is for real, and Deandre Cole isn't waiting to pull the rug out from under us like so many times before.
Lindsey Buckingham, one of the greatest rock guitarists of the past 40 years -- yeah, we said it -- is coming to the intimate Capitol Theatre in Clearwater on Oct. 5. He'll perform solo tunes as well as hits from his Fleetwood Mac catalog. Ticket details are still trickling out, but we'll update you when we have them. In the meantime, click here for details.
When it comes to Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks may steal more of the headlines, but it is Buckingham who still has us thinking about tomorrow. When the band played the St. Pete Times Forum in 2009, we wrote:
Lindsey Buckingham is an absolutely kickass guitarist. During the show, he finger-picked his way through Big Love; displayed unparalleled chops in the art of fretboard wankery; and made eight of the top 10 guitar faces I've ever seen.
He did the same thing during his recent cameo on Saturday Night Live, too. What a great show this will be.
