“The Chain,” off Rumours, is the only song on which every member of Fleetwood Mac’s most popular lineup was given a songwriting credit. Former member Lindsey Buckingham shares his thoughts on it.
“The only thing I remember about that is we had a great take of that in Sausalito when we were recording it, and one of those little 3M machines ate it, and we had to do it again. There’s not a lot to say about that, that was a good stage song. It certainly was a good cross-pollination of Stevie’s lyric, and there was something that everybody contributed.”
Lindsey Buckingham turns 71 years old today (October 3rd).
