    A dear music industry friend of mine who I've known since the 70's saw the new Fleetwood Mac tour with Neil Finn and Mike Campbell at the LA Forum earlier this week and says it was like hearing familiar songs played in a brand new way. He told me the tour is worth seeing if you like their music (plus the Crowded House and Tom Petty songs they also played.) Interesting, I had written this band off as live muzak years ago... but I trust Stan's opinion when it comes to music so... might have to find a ticket.

    Davis doesn’t need the coke. So he’s cool. Maybe he will
    Just mumble I’m with Welch.

    Every review I've read, which interestingly are a lot more than I would have thought, seem polite in their criticism. All of them raved about the lone Crowded House song they do and the Petty medley.

    I have always lusted over Christie McVie . She, and especially her voice, has always turned me on.

    Yeah, I admire his musicianship and songwriting. But that doesn't change the fact that he really is a whiny bitch.

    Open heart surgery I read, with the vocal cord damage from an emergency intubation. Maybe there was a reason he was fired from Big Mac besides being a whiny bitch.

    The last few dinosaurs roam the earth still. But time is not on their/our/my side. Jagger is 75 and preparing for another tour, but at least he has run 5 miles a day for decades. (Keith... a violation of the laws of nature!) The rest of us are on Medicare praying that we can afford our meds.

    Buckingham was a part of one of the (apparently) major coke-consuming acts back in the day. Mebbe that is a factor. I, for one, hope he recovers and does what he wants for the rest of his life. I have a hard time holding him fully responsible for a firing (apparently) based on Nicks' inability to work with him anymore.

    You're right, Carl. And so it goes.

    I was speculating that maybe he was having medical issues and the rest of the band didn't want to rely on him if there was a possible heart attack in the wings... but yes I hope he recovers.
