Lindsey Buckingham Gives Retroactive Credit To Blinker The Star And Medicine Songwriters

Lindsey Buckingham has given retroactive songwriting credit to Blinker The Star’s Jordon Zadorozny and Medicine’s Brad Laner after accidentally plagiarizing one of their songs. Upon hearing “Swan Song,” a standout on Buckingham’s new self-titled solo album, Zadorozny noticed that it sounded remarkably similar to “Mind’s Eye,” a song that he co-wrote with Laner over 20 years ago. “It was a strange feeling of déjà vu, but a déjà vu where your hero is singing your song,” Zadorozny tells Spin.
