47. "The Ledge"
"Lindsey was really making a stand," Nicks
said of Tusk. And never so much as on "The Ledge," a happily
demented leap into post-punk primitivism and noise for its own sake. He
recorded the song alone, turning his guitar down until it emitted an ugly
rumble as he yammered another thinly veiled screed about his relationship with
Nicks. "I was trying to find things that were off the radar," he recalled of the song and others like it on the LP. "On this, that one
guitar was covering everything. It was a concept piece on that level. There was
nothing for John or Christine to do."
