Stevie Nicks, circa late 70s/early 80s? Hell, yeah. In a heartbeat.

This really should have gotten the "Obvious" tag, because it's about Prince in the 80s.

So he did know a girl named "Nikki" and he guessed that you could say she was a sex fiend.

as an aside, is there a reason why there seems to be a sudden (re)interest in Fleetwood Mac? I mean, they have one of the biggest selling albums in the world, yet within the past year or so it seems like they're treated as if they were some kind of Velvet Underground-ish secret and are now a frequent reference point among indie circles.

If the indie circles you're referencing are in the 18-24 age group, that might be it.

(I think I discovered The Velvet Underground sometime around that age, as a matter of fact.)

Maybe.  I'm almost (ALMOST) old enough to be the father of someone from that set (*shudders*), though, so they might've been raised on things like, I don't know, Talking Heads, Fishbone, Fugazi, etc.  All kinds of stuff, really.  Just maybe not Rumors, or, say, Hotel Califo...never mind that last bit.  (*Bigger Shudder*) Nothing against Rumors, or Fleetwood Mac in general, but I heard plenty growing up myself and don't feel the need to play a lot voluntarily.  I won't change the channel if they come on, y'understand, and will probably sing along, but I'm not actively playing them.  So maybe for these kids it's new.

Velvet Underground was new for me, because my father was meh on them when they came out, so I wasn't exposed to them.  (He thought Andy Warhol was alright; he has pretty decent taste in music overall.) One way or the other, I thought I'd found some fresh new old thing, when everyone who had a few years on me knew damned well all about it long before.

(Wasn't Sinatra big with the young'uns a few years back?  Nothing wrong with that, but yeah, we know.  See, I'm getting old.)

only among the try-hard contrarians.


I don't really have any problem with Fleetwood Mac, I just think the trend is somewhat odd; it would be like Bad Company or Bachman-Turner Overdrive becoming indie staples. But I've also thought the indie adoration of "In the Court of the Crimson King"-the proggiest of Prog Rock albums in a genre that's always been rather suspect in indie circles-was a bit odd; mostly because I think they have albums that are arguably better and more crossover appeal.

Heaven help us all.  See, the one might be worth exploring, to some extent, at least.  Those other two serve no purpose whatsoever.  But then Pabst Blue Ribbon, so...(do they not have Mickey's Big Mouth where these people are from?)

Red?

I didn't know prog itself was suspect, as much as some prog bands specifically.  (*Casts glare at Rush*) But I was never strictly an indie kid, per se; I was kind of all over the place.  I know Tool cited King Crimson as a big influence, which led to something of a rediscovery in certain circles, but I doubt that'd be the indie kids.

Honestly, though, I don't know what the kids are up to these days.  I'm grateful I haven't heard any of that atrocious emo that was not Rites of Spring or Beefeater but was instead Dashboard Confessional in years, and I hope to keep it that way until...I die, I think.

Maybe it's envy as they realize that post-modern youth culture of the 21st century has yet to produce anything that will be as enduring as Fleetwood Mac in  general and 'Rumors' in particular.

American Horror Story has certainly put enough Stevie Nicks out there this year, with more to come.

I'm also convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt that Prince wrote Stand Back. His version of the story of how he got involved/did the keyboard part doesn't match her version at all... and there are probably hundreds of songs that he will never receive credit for. Doesn't make my sympathize with his dickish protection of his properly credited musical career... but makes it somewhat understandable.


UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: Gunderson: I liked the girl with the hooked nose in Fleetwood Mac more

Christine McVie was a much more accomplished musician. She was my favorite too.


Each had a few good songs and a few stinkers. The real talent in that band were Green, Fleetwood, and Buckingham (depending on lineup). And if you ever watch the video version of The Dance, it's pretty clear that Christine McVie would rather be anywhere else in the world than be on stage with that band.

I saw her perform in Dallas a couple years back.  The concert was great, but she stopped the show shortly after they begun to lecture people in the front rows about filming her with their cameras.  For what they paid of tickets, I figure just let them be lol.  Anyway, it was worth seeing her live but she certainly does have that biatchy attitude you hear about.
