My Music Monday

Poor Lindsey Buckingham

First kicked out of Fleetwood Mac last year, sued the band and settled that lawsuit - and probably walked away with some decent coin.

Now he's had emergent open heart surgery - which would have cut that tour short had he been a part of it - and possible sustained vocal cord injury which is, I'm guessing, due to the intubation.

Assuming it's not complete loss of speaking voice, I'm guessing even a hampered vocal cords would render a greater vocal range than Stevie Nicks' current three note ability.

I figured I'd give him a feature today - as I assume he's a long-time reader (ha!).  "Doing What I Can" comes from what is inarguably his best solo disk, his 1992's Out of the Cradle. It's not a perfect disk by any means, just his best one. I'm not sure what that says about some of his others.   (psssssst.  I totally know what it says about the others!)

Do I remember 1992 radio?  I do not. Not specifically. I know Buckingham wasn't really making an appearance on the airwaves, but some of his stuff could have - including "Doing What I Can".

It couldn't be worse than Jesus Jones.
