"A GREAT time at lunch with some members of the Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks family."

Somethings cookin' over at the Nicks residence and it may be more than lunch... Dave Rahn, Production Co-ordinator and Catering Manager for Stevie's 2010-2011 tour and Fleetwood Mac's Catering Manager on the 2009 Unleashed Tour posted this photo yesterday with the caption:

"A GREAT time at lunch with some members of the Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks family. Love this group of people!"

Not in the photo, but also there and had just left apparently was Waddy Wachtel.  The photo was taken yesterday (July 31st) and appears to have been taken at Stevie's home.





(From left) Sharon Celani, Carlos Rios, Karen Johnston, Dave Rahn, Kellianne Murphy, Jimmy Paxson, Sheryl Louis, Brett Tuggle and Eilynn Chapman.  On the floor... Stevie's little Yorkie Sulamith.

A lot of familiar faces connected to Stevie either solo or with Fleetwood Mac. Sharon of course sings back on everything Stevie does whether solo or with Fleetwood Mac. Carlos has mainly been backing up Stevie on her solo ventures. Karen is Stevie's Assistant. Kellianne is one of Stevie's god daughters and if you saw the In Your Dreams Documentary, she was sprinkled all through the video. She did all the cooking at the big house during the recording of the album. Jimmy is Stevie's solo band drummer. Sheryl Louis is Stevie's Manager. Brett supports Stevie and Lindsey solo and has been part of the back up musicians on Fleetwood Mac's past 3 or 4 tours. Eilynn is Stevie's makup artist for everything Stevie does. Not shown, was Waddy Wachtel who of course is Stevie's Musical Director and co-Producer of her new album "24 Karat Gold - Songs From The Vault".

Of particular interest is the presence of Waddy Wachtel, Carlos Rios and Jimmy Paxson - which leads me to believe this was more of a Stevie (solo) meeting rather than something to do with Fleetwood Mac.  Just a guess of course.

Will Stevie tour (solo) anytime soon? Would love to see her again! FM Tour too expensive this time around. But, I saw her twice on IYD tour and FM twice last year. (And many times since 1986). Love her!

Ya kind of odd to see this group of people together just before a Fleetwood mac rehearsal. I myself have 2 shows in Boston on the mac tour. But very disappointing with what we had too pay. If that's what we have to pay in the future to see the mac then I would rather see a Buckingham & Nicks tour or Stevie and Lindsey solo!!!

Perhaps they are planning a short mini-tour for early next year, maybe something along the same length as the twelve shows she did for Bella Donna. We know Fleetwood Mac is going to record next year, so perhaps Stevie will create a small-scale tour for 24K Gold.

A thought to pounder maybe a performance prerecorded on the voice. For the show to help promote 24 karot gold!!

Hell/// I would trade FM tickets in less then a heartbeat for a chance to see Stevie Nicks solo...and pay the same price... seeing Christine McVie interests me not a smidge!!

I'm not reading too much into a lunch. They are probably in town to start preparing for the FM tour or were there working on Stevie's project. As for Buckingham Nicks, I have been thinking the last two tours WERE Buckingham Nicks. Just hoping Stevie's new project is terrific - nervous about this one - she never released these songs before and have to wonder why. But she does always come through so I am very optimistic and excited. Weird though with no tour to promote. Just maybe she can do one song with FM ???
