Babies' Second Concert: Lindsey Buckingham

27 weeks along, and already, our boys are showing refined and eclectic musical tastes. Tonight, we attended what will probably be our last concert in a good long time: Lindsey Buckingham, live at the Danforth Music Hall.

Buckingham isn't exactly a household name, but just about everyone knows at least a handful of his songs. Who hasn't hummed along to the catchy rockabilly riff of "Holiday Road" throughout "National Lampoon's Vacation"? But he's best known as the on-again/off-again frontman for the superstar rock band Fleetwood Mac, whose 1977 classic "Rumours" was once the best-selling album of all time. The guy singing "Go Your Own Way", one of their rare hits not performed by Stevie Nicks? That's him.

Lidia says the boyos were kicking it up big time from the second song, the catchy "Love Runs Deeper", and again during the lengthy "World Turning". Could this merry evening have inspired guitarists and drummers in our future? Glad these townhouses have concrete walls...
