Happy birthday to a great vocalist, composer, producer, and guitarist, who was born October 3, 1949 in Palo alto, California.

He's best known of course for his work with Fleetwood Mac from 1975 to 1987 and then from 1997 until today.

In 2011, Buckingham was ranked 100th in Rolling Stone magazine's 2011 list of "The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time".

He's just announced a new leg of U.S. tour dates, having had to extend the original jaunt due to public demand.

As for a Fleetwood Mac reunion and tour?

According to Stevie Nicks, a new album and tour will happen come 2013!
