Documentary: FLEETWOOD MAC - DON'T STOP Airing on BBC4 May 4th

This 2009 Documentary originally aired on the BBC just ahead of Fleetwood Mac's Unleashed tour dates in the UK and Ireland.  

The Documentary takes a look back over the band's long career, from the early blues outfit led by Peter Green in the late 1960s, to their reincarnation in the 1970s with the line-up that went on to record the 40-million-selling album Rumours. Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks reveal the truth behind the successes, failures and relationships that have characterised their music and made them one of the most enduring acts in popular music.

Excerpt 1

Fleetwood Mac - Don't Stop lacked the caustic edge of the Rock Family Trees film about the band from 1995. That contained some great stuff about the fake Fleetwood Mac launched by their former manager Clifford Davis, true confessions from ex-guitarist Bob Weston about his affair with Mick Fleetwood's wife, and the one about addled guitar hero Peter Green wandering around with pieces of cheese in his hair. But inevitably director Matt O'Casey's new film had the advantage of being able to bring the story up to date, notably in a bittersweet coda reflecting on the still-unbridged chasm between Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham.

For all the doggedness of founding father Mick Fleetwood, who increasingly resembles a castaway from a tropical island - funnily enough, he now lives in Hawaii, along with original bassist John McVie - the Mac became the biggest band of their era because of Buckingham and Nicks. Of all the inter-band traumas, theirs was the most spectacular, intense and creative, and it still bites both of them hard to this day.

Nicks, in particular, wasn't pulling any punches. It hurt her when Buckingham wrote "Go Your Own Way" about her, and it still does: "Ladylike, prudish Stevie, which I am, was very offended by him saying 'shacking up is all you want to do', because I was not in any kind of shacking up mood. I was not shacking up with anybody."

By all accounts Buckingham has always been a gifted but bloody difficult band-mate - "one of those people that will go up on the cross to make a point, and die," as Nicks put it - but marriage and children have given him some equilibrium. Yet his history with teenage sweetheart Stevie is still a weeping scab. "Maybe in 10 or 15 years when Lindsey and I are 75, we'll be friends again, when Fleetwood Mac is a distant memory," she said wistfully. But like the Flying Dutchman, maybe the Mac can never stop.

NME 100 Best Songs of the 80's 
Fleetwood Mac - Everywhere #92
Penned by Christine McVie about new husband Eddie Quintela, it was McVie doing what she did best; a simple song about the joys of new love. Lindsey Buckingham’s typically progressive production covered the song in a glossy 80s sheen, and would lead to another massive hit for the band from their monolithic ‘Tango In The Night’ album.

Totally 80's Summer Stevie Nicks | Bonnie Raitt | Steve Winwood

By the time all three became pop superstars in the ’80s, they had been in the business for a decade or more. Bonnie Raitt, Steve Winwood and Stevie Nicks needed time to develop. In today’s fragmented industry of microwavable stardom, it’s hard to imagine their careers taking shape the same way if they were starting now.

As the ethereal focal point of Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks was a star. Her moody, throaty lead vocals on “Dreams,” a hit off the band’s 1977 mega-selling “Rumours,” helped make her a sensation. It also didn’t hurt that the camera loved her.   Full article at

Thanks Jeannie!

Elise Testone Talks Idol & Stevie Nicks

Meeting Stevie Nicks was the highlight of her Idol journey so far. “I definitely felt like her and I were old friends and clicked right away,” she recalled of their meeting a few weeks ago, when they joined together for an impromptu duet and Nicks said, “If I needed a singer, I’d hire her in an instant.” “She was so passionate and sincere with her advice when she spoke to me,” said Testone. “That was the most incredible mentor for me we’ve had so far. And I hope she calls me to be her backup singer!”

Another new documentary on the Starck Club revisits the storied Dallas nightclub of the '80s

It was May of 1984, and young punk Frank Campagna was racing around Dallas in his '75 burgundy Chrysler Cordova – the model with the real Corinthian leather. His mission: to find some green tea for Stevie Nicks.

"It was before there was Whole Foods or any of these organic places," he explains. "Hell, I'd never even heard of green tea before that. But that's what she wanted, and it was the only thing she drank."

NEW on CD: Real Gone Music Reissues Mick Fleetwood's '83 Album "I'm Not Me"

Never Before on CD
Real Gone Music Re-issues Mick Fleetwood's 1983 Zoo Album "I'm Not Me" May 22, 2012

Though I'm Not Me, the 1983 album by Mick Fleetwood's Zoo is commonly thought of as a Mick Fleetwood solo record, it really was the product of a band, and a helluva band at that. Aside from the drummer — who lays down the primal, bedrock rhythms for which he is famous — the denizens of this Zoo include Billy Burnette and Steve Ross on guitar and vocals, session bass player supreme Roger Hawkins and, on background vocals, none other than Christine McVie and Lindsey Buckingham (the band got its start backing Buckingham on a Saturday Night Live appearance). Though produced by Richard Dashut, producer of Rumors and Tusk, I'm Not Me was almost the anti-Tusk, a low-key affair showcasing the considerable singing and songwriting talents of Burnette, Ross and Hawkins. Given the talent assembled and the fact that it scored a hit in "I Want You Back," it's odd that this engaging, infectious album has never been out on CD. The Real Gone reissue includes notes by Scott Schinder that place I’m Not Me in its proper Fleetwood and ‘Mac context.

• Features a Supergroup of Mick Fleetwood, Billy Burnette, Steve Ross, Roger Hawkins, Christine McVie & Lindsey Buckingham.
• Remastered by Mark Wilder at Battery Studios, NYC.
• New Liner Notes by Scott Schinder.

Fleetwood Mac Singer/Guitarist Lindsey Buckingham Interviewed for BBC Radio 4 Documentary

Pete Paphides interviewed Lindsey Buckingham last night (April 16th) for a documentary about the making of Tusk which will air next month on BBC Radio 4 in the UK. The interview was about ways in which bands have followed up commercial success ie Rumours.  

Sounds like it's not just a documentary on Fleetwood Mac, but on a multitude of bands put in the same position.  

Mr. Paphides did ask Lindsey during the interview about his cancelled UK dates and whether or not they would be rescheduled.  Lindsey told him he has no plans as of yet for future UK dates.

No air date has been set for the documentary, I'll post about it when I hear of the date.

About the interviewer:
According to his Wiki page, Pete Paphides between 2005 & 2010 was the chief rock critic of The Times and presented The Times weekly podcast for Sounds Music Supplement.  He has since gone on to freelance for The Guardian, Mojo and Q Magazine and has made a string of documentaries for BBC Radio 4 among other things.

Looking forward to it!

Fleetwood Mac's "Go Your Own Way" #2 on @NME Top 100 '70's Tracks!

British Music Magazine NME just published it's list of the top 100 tracks of the '70's.  Fleetwood Mac make two appearances.... #47 with Dreams and #2 with Go Your Own Way!!

Full list

GO YOUR OWN WAY - Released: December 1976
Written by Lindsey Buckingham about his disintegrating relationship with bandmate and girlfriend Stevie Nicks, 'Go Your Own Way' channels desperation and heartbreak into one of rock's most memorable choruses. The group's first Top 10 in the US, it propelled their album 'Rumours' into the charts, and has since been covered by everyone from Boy George to NOFX.

DREAMS - Released: February 1977
Simple, pretty and aimed like a laser at Lindsey Buckingham's guilty conscience, 'Dreams' was written by Stevie Nicks as everyone's marriages and relationships fell to rack and ruin around the recording of AOR phenomenon 'Rumours'. It doesn't do a great deal but is mesmeric as it needles away, persuading its target to have a damn good think about "what you lost".
