Lindsey Buckingham knows there's an easy way to guarantee pretty good sales for the solo album he's just putting the finishing touches on now. "I could slap the name Fleetwood Mac on it and it would get a lot of attention," says the singer-guitarist-songwriter. The name value is clear. "The Dance," the 1997 Fleetwood Mac reunion album, sold an impressive 3.6 million copies in the U.S. In contrast, Buckingham's last solo album, 1992's "Out of the Cradle," came in at a mere 53,000.

This post has been corrected. Please see note at bottom for details. Fleetwood Mac is headed down the home stretch of its 2013 tour, with only three shows remaining: Wednesday at Staples Center in L.A., Friday in San Diego and Saturday in Sacramento. But 2013 represents a milestone of another kind for band members Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks: It's the 40th anniversary of “Buckingham Nicks, ” the only album they put out as a duo before joining up with Fleetwood Mac in 1975.

In one sense, it's hard to know just what the third solo album from Fleetwood Mac's erstwhile all-purpose player--his first in eight years--is all about. Buckingham's sparse, spare lyrics rarely address anything concrete; there's lots of talk of dreams and fires and sunsets and souls. But on a more visceral level, it's impossible to miss the meaning of "Out of the Cradle": the primacy of the guitar as an expressive instrument.

Only a band as famously twisted as Fleetwood Mac would follow an exhortation to “get this party started” with a song as bleakly imagined as “Dreams.” That's the indelible 1977 smash in which Stevie Nicks warns a capricious lover about hearing “the sound of your loneliness like a heartbeat,” and Saturday night at the Hollywood Bowl, Fleetwood Mac performed it near the beginning of a sold-out concert that Nicks said represented the group's happy...

Fleetwood Mac's array of instruments, mike stands and amplifiers stretches across the vast Culver City soundstage like a miniature city, a gleaming monument to a distant era when rock was big and grand and this band turned its personal soap opera into arena-filling anthems. Lindsey Buckingham, the key architect of that sound, walks past the silent stage, where in a few hours the band will be rehearsing for its summer tour.

It's hard to pick the right descriptive noun for Lindsey Buckingham's concert Thursday night at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano. A comeback? Besides a few cameos and TV appearances, Buckingham hadn't played in public since 1982, when he was a member of Fleetwood Mac. Or a debut? Until he stepped on stage to open his two-night stand, Buckingham never had fronted a band of his own. (These shows were warm-ups for an upcoming TV concert taping and a planned tour early next year).

CHART WATCH: The "Lethal Weapon 3" soundtrack turned out to be a dud, dropping out of the Top 200 after just three weeks despite the success of the film and a star-studded single, "It's Probably Me," featuring Sting and Eric Clapton. And despite all the interviews former Fleetwood Mac member Lindsey Buckingham did in support of his latest solo album, the collection--"Out of the Cradle"--is already in trouble. After just four weeks on the chart, it dropped from a peak of 133 to 143.

Some of the most exciting news to come out of a conversation with Stevie Nicks on Monday was when she discussed a recent studio session with fellow Fleetwood Mac member and longtime collaborator Lindsey Buckingham. The two will join Mick Fleetwood and John McVie to resurrect Fleetwood Mac for a 2013 tour, but they have a history that extends long before they joined Mac in 1975.  The pair recorded one gorgeous, self-titled record in 1973 as Buckingham Nicks, and it was this work that prompted Fleetwood, McVie and then-keyboardist Christine McVie to ask them to join Fleetwood Mac. The rest is (a tangled, romantically complicated)

Lindsey Buckingham, the sonic architect of Fleetwood Mac, has been through a lot: megastardom during the decadent 1970s; a split with bandmate and girlfriend Stevie Nicks that defined the rock 'n' roll breakup; 20 years of balancing pop stardom with an irrepressible avant-garde urge; the only band reunion by presidential request (for Bill Clinton's 1993 inauguration); first-time parenthood at 48. But he never expected to live in Brentwood.
