SECOND HAND NEWS REVISITED BY HOFFS AND SWEET

Lindsey Buckingham appears on Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoff's take on Fleetwood Mac's Second Hand News a remake from their songs of the 70's CD "Under the Covers Vol 2"

You can listen to the track at the Sid and Susie Myspace page

Mentions of Stevie and Lindsey from a recent Magnet Magazine Interview with Matthew and Susanna:

MAGNET: Why did you move to L.A. from New York, Matthew?
Sweet: I came out here to record Altered Beast with Richard Dashut, and Dashut severely turned me on to L.A. He was like this magic leprechaun that showed me all the groovy, classic L.A. factors. He took me to all the different areas. He showed me the old clubs on Sunset Strip and took me by where Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham and him rented a house together (when Dashut produced Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours and Tusk). And Stevie would go down to Ben Franks on Sunset Boulevard and work all day, and they would sit at the house and smoke pot. He turned me on to the California dream sort of thing.

Any feedback from the original artists on your Under The Covers sets?
I know Mike Nesmith liked “Different Drum” from the first one. Who else? I’m sure the Raspberries will be thrilled (with “Go All The Way”). We met them when they played out here about a year ago. It would have been great to have had Wally Bryson and Eric Carmen play on that. We did get one of the original guys to play on the Fleetwood Mac song and the Yes song, and that was really fun. We got Lindsey Buckingham to play on “Second Hand News” and Steve Howe from Yes to play on “I’ve Seen All Good People.” He played a Portuguese 12-string and the crazy electric lead.

Listened to this version and it's "OK", but not that special.

Yug, it's pretty bad. They don't even sound like their singing in tune with each other.
