Hall of Fame musician Lindsey Buckingham is celebrating the release of his new CD, Gift of Screws next week by launching a national tour that kicks off at the Mountain Winery in Saratoga Sunday night.

For Buckingham, it's coming back home.

ABC7's entertainment reporter Don Sanchez sat down with Buckingham at the Warner Brothers studios in Burbank.

The two talked about how before he had his first guitar, he taught himself to play on a toy Mickey Mouse ukelele, life at Menlo-Atherton High School, where he and classmate Stevie Nicks formed a band that opened for Santana, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin and balancing a solo career with being a member of the legendary group Fleetwood Mac.

Buckingham will play a second Bay Area show Sept. 13 at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco.

Fleetwood Mac is expected to release a new album and go on tour next year.
