I think we can safely nominate the CD with BB & Dave Mason as worst Fleetwood Mac album ever!


You know something was amiss, when the best track on the whole thing was Mick Fleetwood's spoken word track "These Strange Times"

They need to get Christine McVie back. She was sorely missed on the last album.


I missed Christine McVie so much on the last album that I ended up putting together my own version of "Say You Will" that incorporated songs from her solo album, "In the Meantime," which came out around the same time. (Sorry, Christine.) I took out two songs each from Lindsey and Stevie, moved some of the remaining tracks around, and inserted about a half dozen of Christine's songs. I works pretty well, I think. Although Christine's songs lack Lindsey's distinctive guitar work, the resulting faux "Fleetwood Mac" album has been a favorite in my car.

Let's go. :ohyes:

I don't suppose they talked Christine into joining the tour. Who will handle the vocals on her songs?

I don't think they intend to do any of Christine's songs. Sad because "Say You Love Me" alone is a MUST!

I hope they come to Vegas.

Well they can't rightly call it a greatest hits tour and leave out Christine's songs! No "Over My Head"? "Songbird"? "Hold Me," fer chrissakes?

I'll still go for sure, but I'm less excited. What about those rumours that had Sheryl Crow joining up?

On the "Say You Will" tour, Stevie did Christine's verses on "Don't Stop."

It was weird, but not horrible.

Since this upcoming tour is being billed as a "Greatest Hits" show, I hope they do a couple of Christine's songs. Could they really not? I just got my tix for May 30 at the MGM Grand! I've never seen them live before. It's funny, I remember listening to their records in 1976 and 1977 and thinking I'd like to see them live. It only took me 33 freaking years. That blows my mind. Imagine telling a 16 year-old kid "You'll see that band live in 33 years."

Me too. Always enjoyed their music but never seemed to catch them live even during The Dance Tour. Jimbo and I will be seeing them at MSG in March!!!!!! :) :) :)

The first time I saw them was around 1990, after Lindsey left and they had Billy Burnette and Rick Vito in the fold. Then I saw them twice on "The Dance" tour, they were phenomenal.

That March date will be here before you know it!

I just hope it warms up a bit by then. I hate the cold this year more than ever. Got home form work yesterday completely frozen.

Stevie Nicks clears the air on the Sheryl Crow "issue"...
Quote:
"What happened is that it was absolutely discussed and [Sheryl] absolutely was invited to join the band. The reason was I wanted another woman in the band, because I missed Christine so bad that it was just really hard for me to be in the boys club. What happened was, really... everybody thinks it was just because Sheryl got really excited and told the world about it a little bit too early. That wasn't what it was. I started explaining to Sheryl what it was going to be like to be in this band. It's all-encompassing, and for somebody with a new baby...for a woman in her forties with a new baby, and as loving and as nurturing as Sheryl Crow is... if you know her, you know that she just is a caretaker. We had a conversation at the beginning of this year. I said, 'I rented a studio,' and it was around Mother's Day. 'You need to come in and we need to play music for two days, because we should. It's not an audition for us, it's not an audition for you, it's just us to play music. We'll set it all up and we'll be on a stage and have great monitors, and all your pianos and everything will be set up. We're just going to rock for two days, go out to dinner and hang out. We need to do that.'

She had all these really important plans, because it was her first Mother’s Day, and she was also on the road, so she had to escape out of that for three days. I said, 'You have to do it, you have to come.' That was on a Thursday. She said to me, 'Are you trying to talk me out of this by telling me how difficult this is going to be for me?' I said, 'I'm not. I'm just being truthful with you. Imagine this, when we went on the Say You Will tour, we thought it was forty shows. It was 135 shows. Nobody knew that, but that’s what it was. And that was for an unhappy tour.'

'So it is kind of like joining the army. Personally, it's going to be very hard for you. I'm not trying to talk you out of it, I'm just trying to let you know what it is.' So she said, 'Okay, I'm going to think about it,' and she called us back two days later. We were in the car, on speaker, and she said, 'I think I'm going to have to pass.'

I said, 'Honey, as Stevie, your friend,' who spent three solid years with her working on Trouble in Shangri-La in ’98, ’99, and 2000, I said, 'I think you're making the right decision. As Stevie Nicks, I'm disappointed. But as your friend, I think this is the right decision.'

Sheryl Crow passed on Fleetwood Mac, and I want that out there, because people seem to be getting different stories about this. That’s what happened."

Funny about all of this because I'd read earlier that Mick Fleetwood said Sheryl blew it by "announcing" she was joining the band before the band finalized it. This weekend, Lindsey Buckingham was on a local Vegas radio station and confirmed the Mick Fleetwood version!
