makjr33: Let me know when Bob Welch rejoins the band.
And Bob Bruning, Jeremy Spencer, Danny Kirwan, Bob Weston, Dave Walker, Rick Vito, Billy Burnette, Bekka Bramlett and Dave Mason rejoin too.
I'd see them even without any of those guys....

/ too soon?


Bob Welch killed himself last year.
Bob Brunning had a heart attack 2 years ago and died.
Danny Kirwan has gone full Syd Barrett.
Billy Burnette had quintuple bypass surgery in 2009, but is probably available.

Do they even play any of the pre NIcks Buckingham stuff in concert anymore?

Albatross is a damn fine song.

I have a VHS (yes I'm old) of a Fleetwood Mac concert.  It was done in LA, and apparently only beautiful people were allowed to be in the audience.  (Seriously.  I don't think there's anyone below a 7, most are 8 or 9).

Anyhow, this was when Stevie had inflated, and the camera dwells as little on her as possible. If she's singing, the camera is straight on her face, and if she's not, the camera only picks her up in passing.

My point: Big Fat Stevie Nicks only seen in passing STILL has more stage presence than Christine McVie, who has to be one of the most wooden uninteresting performers I've ever seen. She has a beautiful voice and is a marvelous songwriter, but I can see why she keeps quitting. I think she'd rather be getting a handy from the dentist while on roofies than being on the stage.

Now that was a concert, but at "12 years old", I remember Fleetwood Mac was considered dinosaurs and on their way out even then....


I saw them on the Tusk tour in Honolulu (got two 11th row tix for washing and waxing my sister's car), and in that iteration of the band, Christine was integral. Without her superior songwriting and vocals it would have been just another concert. Ms. Nicks is pretty and a good songwriter with a distinctive voice, but Christine had chops that Stevie couldn't touch.

Dragonflew: Why am I the sole person in this thread to correctly call her Christine?


Perfect.
