Info Page


After the release of Lindsey's "Out Of The Cradle" album in 1992 and the subsequent promotional and tour activities that wrapped in 1993, Lindsey began working on his next solo album that ultimately would not be released until Fleetwood Mac's return with "Say You Will" in 2003 or Lindsey's next solo release "Under The Skin" that was
released in 2006.


So what happened between 1993 and 2003?


1992 1997 2003  
2006 2008 2011  


What we do know is that Lindsey reconvened with Fleetwood Mac for their successful #1 reunion live album and tour "The Dance" in 1997, but what happened between 1993 and 1997 and 1998 and 2003?



Late 1993

After the live shows with Tina Turner wrap Lindsey takes his touring band to Maui for two and half weeks  to begin recording tracks for hist next album, the band members that travel to Maui are  Freddie Pol, John Wackerman, Janet Robin, Scott Breadman, Liza Carbe, and Mike Tempo.


Memory from Janet Robiin 

This was one of the most memorable times of my career. LB rented out the bar lounge at the hotel in Maui for 2 1/2 weeks and had recording consoles and all kinds of gear flown in. We had just finished touring, opening for Tina Turner, and we all felt like such a wonderful musical family he wanted to experiment writing and recording songs together. Some of those experiments ended up re-recorded on the next FM record... Amazing experience to say the least, snorkeling by morning, recording by day, eating and drinking by night. Yes, dream gig indeed! 


Memory from Mike Tempo 

Maui 1993 with Lindsay Buckingham and his merry band. We went to work on his next solo CD. 2 and a half weeks recording in Maui - it was pretty wonderful!! Lindsay is kneeling with the pineapple. From left to right: Freddie Pol, John Wackerman, Janet Robin, Scott Breadman, Liza Carbe, and Mike Tempo.
