Stevie Nicks Soundstage Update

The PBS Soundstage website has been updated with Stevie's Bio/Gallery and a complete video of Gold Dust Woman.... This is going to be really great to see... and If I had a choice out of all the pictures I've seen so far of the show... This picture below would make a great cover shot for the DVD, or even maybe the reverse side... It's just a great action shot of Stevie.

Happy 65th Birthday Christine McVie!! (July 12)

Happy Birthday Christine
July 12, 2008
An English songwriter, vocalist, pianist, and synthesizer player who has worked both in bands and as a solo artist, McVie is one of the most highly regarded female musicians in the genres of pop/rock and blues/rock. She is considered a pioneer, and was one of the first female musicians to enter the British blues scene of the 1960s, as well as one of the first to release a solo album. Her soulful alto, keen melodies, sensitive lyrics, and grounding presence were a focal point for nearly 30 years in Fleetwood Mac, a blues band that became a highly successful mainstream rock act.

The Heart of the Group

Christine McVie played keyboards and sang background vocals (sometimes uncredited) on several records by Fleetwood Mac, and she even painted the cover for their album Kiln House (1970). In August of 1970 she was asked to join as a permanent member, replacing guitarist Peter Green as the band's main songwriter. The early 1970s was a difficult period for Fleetwood Mac: they lost several band members and released critically acclaimed but generally unsuccessful records. In addition, John McVie had begun to drink heavily, and his behavior strained his marriage.

In 1974 Fleetwood Mac relocated to Los Angeles. After Fleetwood heard a recording by the California duo Buckingham Nicks in a Los Angeles studio, he invited the pair---guitarist Lindsey Buckingham and vocalist Stephanie "Stevie" Nicks---to join his band. The quintet's first recording, Fleetwood Mac (1975), was a huge success, becoming the top-selling album produced by Warner Brothers up to that point. Three of the four songs that Christine wrote for the record---"Over My Head," "Say You Love Me," and "Warm Ways"---were hit singles, and she also began a fruitful collaboration with Buckingham with "World Turning." Writing in The Encyclopedia of Popular Music, Colin Larkin called Fleetwood Mac "a promise fulfilled. The newcomers provided easy, yet memorable compositions while the British contingent gave the group its edge and power." The rest is history... [musicianguide.com]

The 27-city Gift of Screws Tour kicks off September 7 at The Mountain Winery in Saratoga, Calif., and wraps October 19 at Nokia Theatre Times Square in New York City.

Other stops include Moore Theatre in Seattle (September 9), Royce Hall Auditorium in Los Angeles (September 14), The Joint in Las Vegas (September 20), The Pageant in St. Louis (September 29), Murat Egyptian Room in Indianapolis (October 5), Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort in Atlantic City, N.J.

Lindsey Buckingham maps summer road trip

Lindsey Buckingham has lined up a headlining tour this fall as the Fleetwood Mac singer/guitarist continues to work out distribution details for his next solo album.

Buckingham, who mounted his first solo tour in almost 14 years last spring behind his 2006 release, "Under the Skin," will kick off the fall trek Sept. 7 in Saratoga, CA.
The 27-date outing includes a lengthy West Coast leg through much of September before heading on to the Midwest and eventually ending in the East. Details are included below.

Buckingham's most recent studio set, "Under the Skin" follows 1992's "Out of the Cradle." The singer said he was inspired to get to work on his latest solo effort after reuniting with Fleetwood Mac for 2003's "Say You Will."

The musician told Billboard.com earlier this year that he's planning another solo album for release later this summer, one that he recorded with members of his touring band along with Fleetwood Mac bandmates Mick Fleetwood and John McVie.

The forthcoming album "has a little more of a rock feel to it" than "Under the Skin," Buckingham said. "It's just another group of tunes that hopefully will translate to stage, and hopefully we can get some more [solo] dates this summer." The singer has also told various interviewers in recent months that he hopes Fleetwood Mac will mount a tour behind a new studio album next year.

Earlier this year, Buckingham released "Live at the Bass Performance Hall," a live DVD documenting the musician's performance last year at the Fort Worth, TX, venue. The package is available in a bonus set that includes more than 45 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage, and an accompanying audio CD with the same track listing as the DVD.
