Why? At this rate it'd be a competetion to see who keels over on stage first, with John McVie and Mick Fleetwood the top contenders unless Lindsey Buckingham has a coronary event while shredding his guitar. I doubt it'd be Stevie Nicks for some reason.
 
2012-12-04 04:08:24 AM
Yes, I'm sure she meant Big Mac, too.
 
2012-12-04 04:48:20 AM
Only if they bring back Peter Green.

They even plan to rent a C-5 to fly Stevie's ass around to each concert where it will be reconnected once inside the arena.

Nix was always over-rated: Linda Ronstadt was sexier and a better singer. As for "classic" rockers, RETIRE ALREADY. Give it up. You're too damn OLD.

The One True TheDavid: You're too damn OLD.


Strangely enough nobody ever tells that to blues musicians. Granted, if we're talking about cawk rawk, there's a definite expiration date, but how would that category apply to Fleetwood Mac? I think they were in their 30s when Rumours came out.

/Teenage angst nu metal bands in their 30s are even more embarassing...

Rumours was a damn good album.

Judging by what the Marcus Amphitheater gets for Summerfest lately, I'm expecting an announcement about them headlining a show there any moment now.

She still does it for me.

This is an old cowboy song that she performed live with chris isaak a few years back..

Article doesn't say whether or not Christine McVey will be joining them. I don't believe she participated in the last tour. Too bad....her keyboards and voice were pretty central to their sound.

Abacus9: Only if they bring back Peter Green.


And Bob Welch is dead and Danny Kirwan "retired" to his sister's basement after a couple years on the streets.

If you think their best albums were Kiln House and Mystery to Me, this tour is a non-event.

Rock and Roll and golf have a lot in common. They both have a seniors tour.

This. The lack of Christine McVie was what kept me from seeing them on the last tour.

True story: the ONLY Fleetwood Mac album I own is Then Play On.
 
2012-12-04 08:32:27 AM
Fleetwood Mac is my parents' music. But I would fap to seeing them live in the '70s.
 
2012-12-04 08:40:20 AM
Meh, saw 'em in '87, that was enough. Stevie was my goddess thru the early '90s, then I upgraded to Suzanne Vega and Kate Bush.

It's amazing how many people don't know this.

Anyway, if you're really, really in to this era of Mac (which, judging by the fact that I've never found a greatest hits of the pre-Buckingham & Nicks era Mac, chances are people are) I'm sure it'll be okay. And by okay I mean exorbitantly priced gigs that fifty- and sixtysomethings with burnable income will flock to.

\would love to hear a pre-"Rhiannon" greatest hits cd of theirs
\\know I'm missing out, but don't know what on
 
2012-12-04 08:51:55 AM
I took my wife to see them on their 2010 tour. They were good, but yes it was an oldies tour. You've heard it all on classic rock radio 1,000 times by now.
 
2012-12-04 09:01:38 AM
My wife and I saw Lindsy Buckingham solo last month. Worst concert we have ever been to. His voice is completely gone. He tried to compensate by amplifying his sound so loud it made your ears bleed.

Truly awful
 
2012-12-04 09:15:02 AM
Stevie Nicks, you say?
southparkstudios.mtvnimages.com
No thanks.

Icetech3:

"Without peter green it's not even fleetwood mac..."

Yup. Although I do like the Bob Welch era, too. PG was the man, though. Probably the best true blues guitarist Britain ever produced.

If you want to get annoyed with a marching band, go listen to the original version of Tusk, then find a recent upload of the USC band playing it this year.

Try to spot the differences.

Sorry, beg to differ. The artist has perfectly captured Stevie's face in her renderings. I wish I could draw such "bad art."

unfarkingbelievable: Sorry, beg to differ. The artist has perfectly captured Stevie's face in her renderings. I wish I could draw such "bad art."


Technically, the artist is quite proficient, in that the drawing looks exactly like Stevie Nicks. However, the composition is cliched and quite awful, and when put into context with her other works lends this creepy lesbian stalker vibe to the whole thing.

Upon closer inspection of this particular drawing we also note a number of flaws:

(1) The artist has apparently never seen an actual owl.
(2) Stevie's center of mass does not appear to lie above her rather bizarrely shoed feet. She should be falling over backward, although perhaps her heels are anchoring her to the ground.
(3) Stevie does not appear to be twirling in the drawing. As far as I know she has been in continuous twirl mode since approximately 1987.
(4) The drawing is missing a caption: "They said I could be anything I wanted...So I became a coke fiend."
(5) The dog in the drawing has entirely different lighting on it than tambourine-playing Stevie. Either the giant floating head of Stevie is casting a shadow on it, or the artist can't draw dogs very well, or else the dog is far in the background, and therefore enormous--perhaps it is Clifford the Big Red Dog.
(6) What exactly is going on in the drawing anyway? Stevie appears to be enjoying a little crepuscular tambourine thwapping while a dog sniffs her vagina and a tiny mis-shapened owl attacks her, perhaps attracted by the flapping of a scarf that seems inconveniently located for optimal tambourine usage.

How is it that a band can have one good album and still be talked about so many years later. It's not as if they have a body of work like the other bands of the day: Aerosmith, Stones, Beatles, Zeppelin etc.

Ditto the Eagles. One good album.

Go away...and thanks for the earworms.

1. Tempo too fast
2. Shorter arrangement of the song robs it of the slow build that makes it so effective
3. The entire battery's been tuned up so high that there's no longer any balls to the sound
4. Having played this after every game for 35 years, the band is so bored with it that each section entertains itself by adding semi-coordinated visuals, detracting from the overall effect
5. The students are no longer drunk during performance

I have one of these CD racks filled to overflowing with nothing but Fleetwood Mac albums. I have a second one filled to overflowing with their solo outings.

1) The Beatles aren't really of the same day as (the most well-known version of) Fleetwood Mac.
2) Both Fleetwood Mac and the Eagles have TWO good albums.

Hi, Prank! My comment comes from someone who can't even draw a realistic stick figure! :) You sound like a talented artist (your comment about different lighting and shadow, an observation I have no ability to even conceive of making) and I am nicely envious -- meaning, I think you are so lucky! If I could draw or paint ... my life would be so much more fun and amazing, I think.

The real question is "Can Stevie find someone to cover for her at the Fajita Roundup while she's out on tour?"

That's sad to hear but completely understandable. He's constantly on "11" and doesn't seem to know how to back off to save his voice. Too bad, he's a gifted songwriter.

CSB: About a decade ago I was delivering some advertising comps to a local radio station early one morning. There, in the studio, was Lindsay Buckingham, doing a live promo for a local appearance. He played "Bleed To Love Her" like his life depended on it. It was depressing in a way - he was sining his heart out for a bunch of drive-time listeners in between ads for used cars and a mattress store.
