Lindsey Buckingham

The legacy of Lindsey Buckingham will obviously always first connote him with his success as the guitarist and lead singer of Fleetwood Mac, but that doesn't mean his solo material should be overlooked. His first solo effort, 1981's Law and Order, featured the infectious hit single "Trouble" and a smoldering photo of a shirtless Buckingham on its cover. His 1983 ditty "Holiday Road" famously appeared in National Lampoon's Vacation and became a cult favorite. 1984's Go Insane was an awesomely surprising venture into synth-pop. His next four solo albums, up to last year's Seeds We Sow, are all solid collections of smooth pop-rock. That all being said, Buckingham does sneak a few Fleetwood Mac classics into his sets, so do hold out for "Go Your Own Way." ERIN K. THOMPSON
