Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham will make a rare late night television appearance tonight when he drops by the set of Conan to perform a number from his brand new solo album Seeds We Sow. The guitarist – who recorded, performed and released the new disc entirely on his own – will likely perform with a backing band, but will definitely showcase his talent for dazzling, high-speed finger-picked guitar melodies.

Lindsey Buckingham - Conan, TBS 11:00 p.m.

Jim Jones Revue - Late Show with David Letterman, CBS 11:35 p.m.

Roger Daltrey - Tonight Show with Jay Leno, NBC 11:35 p.m.

The Antlers - Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, NBC 12:35 a.m.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
