Happy 30th Anniversary US Festival '82 Fleetwood Mac Closed out the Festival Sept 5th

The 'US' Generation Documentary

Well this should excite the masses!  Fleetwood Mac are part of an upcoming documentary on The 1982 US Festival.  Check out the official trailer below... Fleetwood Mac come in at about the 2 minute mark where they are shown on stage, in crisp clear footage, singing a bit of Go Your Own Way... They are also on stage introducing Apple co-founder and US Festival visionary, Steve Wozniak.

This looks so cool, I can't wait to see it!  The documentary will in some format be released to coincide with the 30th Anniversary of the Festival this Labour Day September 3, 2012.  Originally scheduled for a Labour Day release the documentary has been pushed back a bit as they are awaiting final interview approvals from key artists that performed.

Hell yeah...I'm from Milwaukee. Suddenly I'm feeling only 7 degrees of separation from Stevie.

I wasn't there, but I'm really looking forward to seeing the documentary. I'm excited for all of you who actually attended the event. It will be interesting to see if the film captures some the magic all of you experienced in 1982.

Does any body else find it ironic that in the screen capture photo above Stevie is holding up the hand of the man who is now probably one of the richest people in the world thanks to his involvement with Apple?

How many times have we heard Stevie say she hates technology and computers? :-)
