Fleetwood Mac- Rumours 45th anniversary- Stevie Nicks, Mick Fleetwood, Lindsey Buckingham
Sad to report the death of Fleetwood Mac pianist/singer/songwriter Christine McVie at age 79. Fly away, “Songbird”.
When assembling your album shortlist for that Seventies time capsule, better reserve space for the February 1977 release Rumours by Fleetwood Mac. And you can measure its merit any way you choose: quality of songs, sheer number of quality songs, stellar sound production, musicianship, awards, sales. Holy cow, the sales are estimated now at 45,000,000 copies ! Rumours was like a Fleetwood Mac greatest hits album unto itself, with “Second Hand News”,”Dreams”,”Never Going Back Again”,”Don’t Stop”,”Go Your Own Way”…and that’s just side one! Band co-founder Mick Fleetwood, chanteuse Stevie Nicks, and prodigal picker Lindsey Buckingham all join me here In the Studio for the forty-fifth anniversary of Fleetwood Mac Rumours .
