In 2011, Buckingham was ranked at the 100th position in the Rolling Stone Magazine’s 2011 list of “The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time”. Buckingham is also known for his fingerpicking guitar style which is quite unique. Fleetwood Mac, the band that established Buckingham on the map of success, had been performing since the late 1960s. The band began as a ‘British blues’ outfit led by Peter Green. The band experienced several problems after their leading man, Peter Green left the group. Buckingham was then invited to join Fleetwood Mac in 1975 as the lead guitarist. After joining the band, Buckingham insisted that Stevie Nicks should join the band as well. The duo then became the face of the famous group and the band saw its peak period with them as the frontmen.

Theirs was a very messy romantic relationship. The duo continued to sing songs and romance while Buckingham’s future wife, Kristen Messner would work as an official photographer of the band standing few feet away from them. Their tumultuous relationship ended when Messner was pregnant with Buckingham’s first child.

There was this multi-platinum ‘Rumors’ album during their period. But as every good thing has to last, the band faced some personal conflicts and as a result, Buckingham left to focus on his solo career. In an interview later, he also revealed that he waited for a long time for Nicks and decided that it was time to let go and move on in life. He also mentioned that he was aware of peers and co-workers who become parents and eventually screw up the lives of their kids. He therefore put too much effort into his family life and today is happily married.
