THE DANCE - 1997
Historic 1997 Live Reunion Of Classic '70s Line-Up In Celebration Of Rumours' 20th Anniversary Available On Vinyl For the First Time!

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Fleetwood Mac's landmark 1977 album Rumours, the powerhouse '70s Fleetwood Mac lineup - Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, Christine McVie and John McVie - reunited for a historic national tour and this extraordinary live album recorded for an MTV special at Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, CA. The beloved incarnation's first together since 1987's Tango In The Night and the band's first No. 1 since 1982's Mirage, the 5x platinum affair features compelling new versions of classic material like "The Chain," "Go Your Own Way," "Landslide," "Rhiannon," "Dreams" and "Silver Springs" alongside fine new additions such as "Bleed to Love Her," "Temporary One" and "Sweet Girl." The Dance ultimately became the fifth best-selling live album of all time in the U.S.

Fleetwood Mac's 2003 reunion album Say You Will served as the band's first studio effort since 1995's Time and currently stands as their final studio release to date. Although the majority of the classic '70s line-up returns to the fold here including Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie, Christine McVie opted out (she does appear as a guest on a few tracks but doesn't contribute as a songwriter). Say You Will also marks the first appearance of superstar duo Buckingham and Nicks together on a Fleetwood Mac record since 1987's triple platinum Tango in the Night and they each offer up a diplomatic nine songs apiece which frequently recapture their past melodic and melodramatic glory.

Check this out... Looks like a great read! 



I have worked in the music and sound business for over forty years. I started in the early 1970’s before programmable drum machines and auto tune. It was a time when only NASA had lasers and techs. The sound systems were stacked right on the stage and fog machines weren’t required to fill the room with smoke. 

In 1975 I was hired away from my sound company by Fleetwood Mac to drive a truck for their first tour with new members Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham. For the next seven years I worked full time as truck driver, equipment guy, stage manager, guitar tuner, accountant, onstage guitar player, electronics guru, caterer, Rastafarian, bartender, chauffeur, security guard, baby sitter (child and adult), mechanic and medic. Traditionally known as a roadie. Many came and went but I was the only one besides the faithful Judy Wong who was there full time from beginning to end. It was a rare and supernatural ride void of game plan. Talent, instinct and destiny were the driving forces. As the band’s success grew, so did the power and chaos. There was an unstoppable energy that fed on itself and continually propelled us forward. Every week was more and bigger. More records sold and more sold out shows. Longer trucks with more equipment for bigger stages. Never-ending months in the studio. Extra buses and nicer planes. More, bigger, longer and louder was our normal.

This was the beginning of the golden age of the business of live rock and roll and the early years of large scale tour production. There was a lot of money to be made playing in sports arenas and football stadiums. A new business model was inspiring long-haired innovators and entrepreneurs to elevate the aesthetics of live music events. This was done while raking in huge piles of partially accounted for cash. Creativity, commerce and the counterculture merged and clamored for a hip place on the grid. Fleetwood Mac and I landed right in the middle of this uncharted territory. We survived and succeeded the only way we knew how-on our own terms.

Between 1992 and 2009 I worked exclusively for Lindsey Buckingham. We recorded a number of albums in his home studio and embarked on numerous solo tours. Lindsey was often asked in interviews to compare those efforts to Fleetwood Mac and was fond of calling one the "small machine" and the other the "big machine." In May of 1975 when I started with the band, Fleetwood Mac was a very small machine but their signature sound and musicality was already apparent. Forty years later the band has assembled their largest machine ever. As the group and their fans celebrate the return of Christine Mcvie to the stage, I am warmed with the memories of the early days and simpler times. Without the great Peter Green, there would never have been a Fleetwood Mac, but for me, the five musicians who mae up the band in 1975 were the defining formation of the group. No producer, manager, lawyer, or floor of accountants could have put them together. In spite of the countless emotions that drive them apart, the band couldn't and still can't, deny the musical magnetism that keeps them playing together. I was immersed in a potent and enticing stew that was too compelling for a sheltered kid from the Midwest to walk away from. i made myself a safe place in the eye of the storm keeping all of the band's toys working and accounted for. I acquired miles of rope while avoiding to hang myself with it. In additon, I aslso played guitar on stage with the band for every show between 1977 and 1982.

A lot of international attention has been stirred up by the enormous success of the band's recent reunion. Their colorful history and survival instincts are recounted in the media worldwide. When a LIFE magazine reporter contacted me for background information for the publication’s tribute to the band. His first question to me was “How do you become a roadie for Fleetwood Mac?” John McVie’s answer would be that I must have lost a bet but there's a lot more to it than that.

Within days of one another.. Lindsey first joined Instagram and Stevie followed - either reactivating her account or re-joined. She had an account previously around 2014 that was official but was deactivated after the 24 Karat Gold album ran it's course.

Mick Fleetwood "In truthful language, we just weren’t happy"

Mick Fleetwood Opens Up About His Rock Photography, Fleetwood Mac's Tour & Lindsey Buckingham's Departure


On Saturday night (Aug. 4) in Los Angeles, Fleetwood -- who is in town rehearsing for the upcoming Fleetwood Mac tour -- popped by the Sunset Marquis Hotel in conjunction with the Morrison Hotel Gallery to showcase a selection of his favorite music shots, which included candid photos of the likes of Keith Richards, John Lee Hooker and bandmate Stevie Nicks.
Billboard caught up with Fleetwood on site to discuss his love of rock photography, his secret mission to infiltrate the stash of early Fleetwood Mac shots that McVie has been holding hostage and what he’s most looking forward to about his band’s upcoming tour.

What are you most looking forward to about the upcoming Fleetwood Mac tour?

We’re very excited. Obviously this is a huge change with the advent of Lindsey Buckingham not being a part of Fleetwood Mac. We all wish him well and all the rest of it.
In truthful language, we just weren’t happy. And I’ll leave it at that in terms of the dynamic.
And he’s going out on the road more or less the same time I think -- not in the same places, I hope (laughs).
So we’re with Mike Campbell from Tom Petty and Neil Finn from Crowded House -- both really credible gentleman and really talented. We are a week into rehearsals and it’s going really well and we’re looking forward, in true Fleetwood Mac style. If you know anything about the history of this band, it’s sort of peppered with this type of dramatic stuff. It’s a strange band really.
It’s ironic that we have a 50-year package coming out with all the old blues stuff with Peter Green, all the incarnations of Fleetwood Mac, which was not of course planned.
But that’s what we’re feeling, especially myself and John, having been in Fleetwood Mac for 55 years. So it’s exciting, totally challenging in the whole creative part of it, and we’re really loving it.
We’re just looking at a whole 18 months on-and-off of trekking around the world like we normally do and having it be fun.
