Stevie Nicks promises band reunion and hints at new album

Steve Nicks has said that Fleetwood Mac will reunite next year.


The singer has just released a new solo album In Your Dreams, on which she worked with ex-Eurythmic Dave Stewart, her first since 2001's Trouble in Shangri-La. But she has revealed that plans are already in place for the band to regroup in 2012, and possibly even make a new album, after she and Lindsey Buckingham finish promoting their solo work.


She told US blogger Perez Hilton: "When my album and Lindsey's albums come to a stop, then Fleetwood Mac will gather again and we'll either make another record or we won't and we'll just go on tour." It has been eight years since their last album, Say You Will.


Buckingham's LP Seeds We Sow is due this autumn. Nicks said it is her favourite solo album by her bandmate. "He took some serious melody pills on this one," she added.


She also said her favourite song of the moment is ET by Katy Perry. "I will stay up until 4am to see the video," she said. Meanwhile, Fleetwood Mac are the next artists to get the Glee treatment with Rumours, an episode dedicated to them, to be broadcast in the UK soon. Gwyneth Paltrow covered their song Landslide in a recent episode.

Help: Fleetwood Mac Song? [02 Mar 2010|06:39pm]

Hey Fleetwood Mac fans!

I have a question and hopefully someone here can help. The other day I was driving home and I switched stations on the radio to hear the last minute or so of a song. I can only describe it as medieval or, I dunno, Faire-ish? There were no lyrics sung, but this may have been because it was the last bit of the song playing. I waited for the DJ to name the song and they did, saying it was by Fleetwood Mac. Unfortunately, I didn't write it down, as I was driving and have forgotten the name.

Anyone know this song? I'd like to hear it in full. I hope I didn't mishear the name/artist of the song!

Oh, and don't worry! I'm a big fan of the group. In fact, Lindsey Buckingham is the sole reason I started playing guitar. I just don't recognize this song, as it doesn't sound like it is from the Buckingham/Nicks era or bluesy *shrugs* It sounded like a jam, maybe

Save the studio..featuring a dapper Mick Fleetwood [05 Jun 2009|03:16pm]


What a great event to attend..if you're in the bay area, check it out...

Campaign to save legendary Sausalito Plant Studios

Posted: 06/04/2009 09:05:18 PM PDT

Mick Fleetwood recently made a pilgrimage to Sausalito to pay homage to the Plant Studios, where his band, Fleetwood Mac, recorded 1977's "Rumours," one of the classic rock albums of all time. He was shocked to find the place closed and the doors locked.

A historic landmark of weathered redwood on the Sausalito waterfront, the Plant, where many of rock's greatest hits were recorded, has been closed since January. It sits empty, moldering on prime bayside property, facing an uncertain future.

After the last owner, Michael Indelicato, defaulted on loans, the building went into foreclosure and is now in the hands of Marin Mortgage Bank. While it's not on the market at the moment, the fear is that it could eventually be sold to


After assessing this rather depressing situation,

at least for rock preservationists, Fleetwood enlisted in the campaign to save the Plant, appearing in a video in which he calls it "truly iconic" and vowing to help "preserve the legacy of this building and the music that was made in it."

The local preservation effort is being led by Mari "Mack" Tamburo, a singer who lives in Mill Valley with her husband, former Plant owner and engineer Arne Frager.

"The building is in limbo," she says. "There's been a lot of misinformation about its status, but the bank owns it. We're engaged in a capital campaign in hopes of making an offer on it."

The problem with that idea is that the Plant has been appraised at more than $4.4 million. That's a lot of money to have to raise in today's lousy economy.

Tamburo quotes "a high-profile person in the music community" as saying, "After I saw the Mick Fleetwood video, I thought, 'Wow, why doesn't he just buy the building himself?'"

She hears that kind of thing a lot. "It's funny when people say, 'Why don't you go to Carlos (Santana) and why don't you go to Sammy (Hagar)?'" she says. "Yeah, I guess if a few of those kinds of folks pooled some money and donated to the nonprofit we could easily buy the building and preserve it for future generations."

When it comes down to it, she figures if a 10th of the 40 million people who bought "Rumours" contributed $1 each, that would be enough to buy the building.

"That would be the far-reaching power of music," she says, "but I don't think we'd be able to reach all those people."

In a perfect world, Tamburo and her nonprofit, Artsboretum, would reopen the Plant as a Sundance-type Institute, but for rock 'n' roll instead of film. She envisions it as "a music arts incubator" where young people could be mentored by "legacy artists."

"This respects its legacy, while stimulating our local economy and providing opportunities for our creative community," she says. "The potential to serve the community is very great. Otherwise, I wouldn't be going to all this trouble."

Indelicato, the Plant's last owner, supports any preservation effort that would save it. In fact, he says he's working on some projects of his own that may involve the building.

"But right now we don't have anything firmed up," he says. "It's still in its formative stages. In the meantime, I'll support anybody if it means saving the Plant."

In any event, Tamburo hopes the "long, bizarre tale" of the Plant Studios doesn't have an unhappy ending similar to the Hit Factory in New York.

"It's now condos," she sighs.

When the Plant opened in 1972, it was a one of three Record Plant studios in the country. The others were in New York and Los Angeles.

It's colorful history includes a lot of great music and a lot of hard partying and superstar craziness. At the opening night gala, for instance, John Lennon and Yoko Ono showed up dressed as trees.

There's a "garden" area in the building that Tamburo says was built over what she calls "Sly Stone's Pit," where he had his bedroom and lived for several years as the Plant's "resident artist." Another resident was the notorious Rick James, whose contribution to the decor was the installation of large pair of lips puckered around a doorway.

When one of the Plant's short-term owners was convicted of drug trafficking and income tax evasion in the mid-1980s, the federal government actually ran the studio for a time, hence its then nickname - "Club Fed."

I recall Frager telling me how Metallica literally raised the roof of the place. When the band was recording "Reload, " they hired a construction crew to lift the ceiling in the largest of the Plant's two studios in order to enhance Lars Ulrich's monster drum sound.

I have my own fond memories of the Plant. I interviewed Booker T. Jones, of Booker T and the MGs, there when he had an office in the building. He was sitting at an electric keyboard and played the famous lick to his blues tune, "Born Under a Bad Sign," when I asked him about the hits he'd written. I can tell you that interviews don't get cooler than that.

A lot of recording studios went under during the recent digital revolution, with technology like Pro Tools allowing musicians to record in their livings rooms, their kitchens or their closets, for that matter.

Despite that, there's nothing like the sound of a professional studio. And the Plant was actually quite busy before if was forced to close.

"As soon as the Fray left, we left," Tamburo recalls. "It's ironic that the last two albums we did there, 'The Fray' and Journey's 'Revelations,' are doing quite well."

He's a deep thinker. :) I say that with nothing but love. This is taken from the Stevie fan group on myspace...

According to Lindsey, "Unleashed" is going to be something unexpected:

"If I knew what to expect, I would tell you. It's been a little convoluted emotionally. We have some work to do." Only 16 dates have been announced so far, but Buckingham said there would be about 40 in the U.S. As to who might put out a Fleetwood Mac album after the tour, Buckingham said nothing was set in stone, but that "we have a strong relationship with Warner Bros.

From EW.com   ....

Happy birthday, John McVie!

Nov 26, 2008, 11:05 AM | by Michael Slezak

Categories: Celebrity Birthdays, Music, Things That Are Awesome!

The Fleetwood Mac bassist turns 63 today, and as a gift (for us as much as for Mr. McVie, really) let's revisit his stunning work on the band's classic "The Chain." I just so happened to be playing this track on a roadtrip this past weekend, and honestly, there's nothing quite like cranking up the volume once McVie's chill-inducing bassline kicks in at the 3:05 mark.

Buuummm... ba-da-ba... ba-da-ba-da-da buuuuummmm...

Q: Is "The Chain" one of the great songs of all time ever?

A: Yes.

Happy birthday, sir!

Fleetwood Mac to tour, record — but without Sheryl Crow


July 24, 2008


In the wake of Lindsey Buckingham’s latest solo project, Fleetwood Mac is gearing up for a tour in early 2009 that will likely be followed by a new band album.

Buckingham — who releases ‘‘Gift of Screws’’ on Sept. 16 and has scheduled a solo tour, which arrives at Chicago’s House of Blues on Oct. 2 — says Fleetwood Mac will convene in January to begin rehearsing for the tour, whose itinerary is currently being assembled. It will be the group’s first outing since promoting the ‘‘Say You Will’’ album in 2003 and 2004.

‘‘There was no sense we had to jump right in the studio,’’ Buckingham reports. ‘‘I think maybe there was even a sense that we would make a better album if we went out and hung out together first on the road ... maybe even sowing some seeds musically that would get us more prepared to go in the studio rather than just going in cold. It takes the pressure [off] from having to go in and make something cold.’’

Contrary to previous reports, however, the Fleetwood Mac tour will not include Sheryl Crow, who spoke of the possibility of being part of the group while promoting her most recent album, ‘‘Detours.’’

Buckingham says the matter ‘‘kinda got out of hand,’’ though there were discussions between the Fleetwood Mac members and Crow. Ultimately, he says, the prospect ‘‘just kind of lost its momentum.’’

‘‘I think with Stevie [Nicks] ... maybe to some degree there was a little too much testosterone on stage when we went out in 2003,’’ Buckingham notes. ‘‘And I think the band was looking to kind of balance that out a little bit.

“I think the good side has been, for Stevie, she came to a point of clarity where she realized the most appropriate thing we could do as a band was to create what needs to be created in the context of the four of us. That’s been a real positive and it’s been a real rallying point for all of us, too.”

The Fleetwood Mac rhythm section of drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie appears on three songs on “Gift of Screws,” which was the title of a solo album Buckingham was working on before Fleetwood Mac decided to record “Say You Will.”

Fleetwood Responds To Inaccurate Near-drowning Story

By WENN, July 22 2008

LATEST: FLEETWOOD MAC founder MICK FLEETWOOD has issued a statement following reports his six-year-old daughter almost drowned at his family home in California on Friday (18Jul08).

The rocker's daughter Ruby is recovering in hospital after falling into a swimming pool, but Fleetwood insists she wasn't at her own home when the incident occurred.

A Fleetwood spokesman says, "On Friday, Ruby and her twin sister Tessa were on a playdate with close friends of the family at a pool in the Hidden Hills area of Los Angeles.

"Contrary to recent Internet reports, the child was not doing cartwheels near the pool and did not hit her head. The accident did not occur at the Fleetwoods' home."

The spokesperson confirms Ruby passed out in the pool and was revived by CPR before she was taken by ambulance to West Hills Hospital. She was later transferred to Cedars-Sinai Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, where she is currently being treated.

Attending doctor, Keith Kumble, confirms young Ruby is in critical, but stable condition.

He says, "Ruby was the victim of an accident that is potentially extremely serious, but she is doing quite well and the medical staff at (hospital) Cedars (Sinai) is optimistic that she will make a full recovery."

Stevie Nicks Says Issues With Lindsey Buckingham Threaten Her Involvement With Fleetwood Mac
By: Howie Edelson

Stevie Nicks says that ongoing problems with bandmate and one-time boyfriend Lindsey Buckingham may signal the end for her in Fleetwood Mac.

Nicks, who'll be hitting the road next week for a string of spring dates, told Q magazine that the band's tentative tour for next year is up in their air due to personality conflicts, revealing, "Lindsey knows that I did not have a great time during (2003's) Say You Will (album and tour)... He was not being very nice or friendly to me and at my old age I'm like 'Please! I can't do it.'I have a great, great, (solo) band... The only reason for me to do it is for my heart."

She went on to say, "I've always loved being in Fleetwood Mac and I'm never going to be the one to squash it... So if Lindsey Buckingham wants to be the Lindsey Buckingham that he was a long time ago -- and be happy with me and enjoy what I do, and enjoy my celebrity and just appreciate the marvelous gift of being in this elite band -- then I will do it again. I will also walk away so fast that the palm tree tops will fall on his head."

Although Lindsey Buckingham admits that there were tensions during Fleetwood Mac's 2003 tour, he says that the band has yet reached the end of its run together: "We are all friends, I would say quite honesty Fleetwood Mac is still a work in progress. There are pieces of baggage probably that still remain that are in the process of being worked through. I mean, we consider ourselves a band that is not broken up, but we don't see each other a lot, so the distance sort of keeps us from working through things at a quicker pace. But no, I think there are a few chapters left to go."

Last month Sheryl Crow told the press that she would be joining Fleetwood Mac on their 2009 tour. Buckingham says that although there are tentative plans for Fleetwood Mac to regroup next year, and that Crow has been considered to perform with the band, he and the rest of Fleetwood Mac were surprised that Crow would make any type of announcement this early.

Out now is Buckingham's solo CD/DVD Live At The Bass Performance Hall. The disc also features a 45 minute documentary called Not Too Late, which includes behind the scenes footage from the recording of his 2006 album Under The Skin.

Stevie Nicks kicks off her 12-city tour on April 18th in Reading, Pennsylvania.

I have a couple hundred screen caps from the Mick Fleetwood Story: Two Sticks and a Drum DVD.
Part one mostly consists of 'the early days', and by that I mean pre-Buckingham Nicks. There's a few Rumours era caps tossed in there, and some of Mick's childhood.
Part two features screen caps from roughly 1974 - 2001.
