LINDSEY BUCKINGHAM: I met Mick right before New Year’s Eve in 1974. Stevie and I were living in LA. We’d done an album on Polydor as a duo, which had come out without making much of a splash, and we were trying to figure out what the hell to do next. Anyway, we were doing demos of new tunes one day at Sound City studio in the San Fernando Valley. At one point I walked towards the control room. I heard a song of ours, “Frozen Love”, being played very loudly and I saw this giant of a man standing up, grooving to a guitar solo of mine. I thought, “What is goin’ on?”, and left them to it. That man was Mick.
When he heard my guitar something obviously clicked in his mind, because after their guitarist Bob Welch left, I got a call from Mick asking if I wanted to join Fleetwood Mac. Originally they weren’t looking for a duo, but I said Stevie and I were a package deal.
