Bel Air Rain

Album: Gift Of Screws (2008)
  • songfacts ®
  • In this song Buckingham looks back at the decadent times he spent with Fleetwood Mac and contrasts it with the relatively calm life he is living now. He explained to The London Times September 13, 2008: "I lived in Bel Air for a number of years as a bachelor with some crazy girlfriends. I also built a house there when I started my family. Fame is really funny, it gives you lots of freedom but then at the same time it takes away a lot of yourself."
