A Conversation With Lindsey Buckingham And Christine McVie

Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie are two links of the figurative chain that once made up one of the most popular bands of the ’70s, Fleetwood Mac. Though the two have been making music together off and on for nearly half a century, it didn’t occur to them until recently to begin making music as a duo. Their recent collaboration turned out to be a success, leading to their first self-titled album, which became available to the public, June 9, and began their North American tour June 21. Buckingham and McVie, who have shared a mutual respect and admiration for each other since their days in Fleetwood Mac, decided it was time to combine their individual musical talents. The album is already receiving rave reviews from Rolling Stone and Variety, among others. The album features classic Fleetwood Mac tones, while also showing fans a fresh side of these two artists. Much of the album was recorded at The Village Studios in Los Angeles, the same recording studio wherein Fleetwood Mac recorded several albums. Drawing on their classic style while exploring fresh new sounds, Buckingham and McVie created a unique album, in a way paying homage to their musical beginnings, some 40 years ago. Before they head back out on tour on Oct. 14 for another 22 shows as part of their successful tour in support of the new album, the GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to welcome Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate conversation about their collaboration and distinguished careers. The evening will also feature a special screening of a short documentary on the making of the album, and will be hosted by Executive Director of the GRAMMY Museum, Scott Goldman.
