Fleetwood's Daughter is Discharged

Mick Fleetwood's Daughter is Discharged
from Los Angeles Hospital


Fleetwood Mac drummer Mick Fleetwood's six-year-old daughter Ruby has been discharged from the pediatric unit of Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center today after being admitted in critical condition following a pool accident on July 18th.

"The doctors at Cedars are stunned by our little fighter," says Fleetwood's wife Lynn. "Based on the condition Ruby was in when she arrived at the hospital 12 days ago, none of them expected her to have come this far in such a short time. She has blown them away with her strength and her will to survive."

Lynn Fleetwood reports that Ruby is now walking on her own, drawing, kicking a ball, and recognizing more of her everyday words and objects. "Her smile is bright, her eyes sparkle and her sense of humor is funnier than ever before."

On July 18th, Ruby and her twin sister Tessa were on a playdate with close friends of the family at a pool in the Hidden Hills area of Los Angeles. The Fleetwood family says that Ruby was doing somersaults in the pool, became disoriented, and swallowed a high quantity of water. She became unconscious in the pool, was revived by CPR, and was rushed by ambulance to West Hills Hospital where she was stabilized. Several hours later, she was transferred to Cedars Sinai Pediatric ICU.

"We would like to thank everyone at Cedars-Sinai for their excellent care," says Mick Fleetwood. "Their wonderful bedside manner was second to none and helped us tremendously throughout this entire ordeal. We want to thank them for everything from the bottom of our hearts."

Ruby will be treated as an outpatient at UCLA Medical Center. The Fleetwoods wish to thank the media for all its well wishes and ask that everyone continue to respect their privacy while they tend to their children and their family.

Sheryl Crow is putting the "Rumours" to rest

Crow: Not working with Fleetwood Mac anytime soon
The Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Sheryl Crow is putting the "Rumours" to rest: She's not making a record with or joining Fleetwood Mac — not anytime soon at least.

"No, that was those 'Rumours' — to quote the album," she joked Wednesday, referring to the group's 1977 hit album.

"I'm a huge fan and have a great relationship with Stevie (Nicks), and actually with all of them. I just absolutely adore them," Crow said during a question-and-answer session with college students in Nashville as part of a Grammy Foundation event.

"I think their next album may be while I'm on the road. Hopefully in the future we'll have some kind of collaboration, but not at this time," she said.

Crow, 46, reportedly told the AOL music Web site last spring that she and the band "definitely have plans for collaborating in the future, and we'll see what happens."

Afterward, Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham told, "I think we were all surprised (Crow) was announcing to the world with such certainty. We have talked about bringing another woman into the scene to kind of give Stevie a sort of foil and shake it up a little bit. (Crow) was certainly a name that has come up. We'll have to see."

Nicks has been Fleetwood Mac's sole female member since Christine McVie left in the late '90s.

Buckingham has said the band plans to go on tour in early 2009 and follow it with an album, their first since 2003's "Say You Will."

Crow, who has recorded and performed with Nicks, is on tour supporting her recent album, "Detours."

Fleetwood Mac Likely To Follow '09 Tour with New Album

Sans Crow, Fleetwood Mac To Tour In 2009
July 23, 2008 , 3:45 PM ET

Gary Graff, Detroit
In the wake of Lindsey Buckingham's latest solo project, Fleetwood Mac is gearing up for a tour in early 2009 that will likely be followed by a new band album.

Buckingham -- who releases "Gift of Screws" on Sept. 16 via Warner Bros. and begins a solo tour Sept. 7 in Saratoga, Calif. -- tells that Fleetwood Mac will convene in January to begin rehearsing for the tour, whose itinerary is currently being assembled. It will be the group's first outing since promoting the "Say You Will" album in 2003 and 2004.

"There was no sense we had to jump right in the studio," Buckingham reports. "I think maybe there was even a sense that we would make a better album if we went out and hung out together first on the road ... maybe even sowing some seeds musically that would get us more prepared to go in the studio rather than just going in cold. It takes the pressure (off) from having to go in and make something cold."

Contrary to previous reports, however, the Fleetwood Mac tour will not include Sheryl Crow, who spoke of the possibility of being part of the group while promoting her most recent album, "Detours." Buckingham says the matter "kinda got out of hand," though there were discussions between the Fleetwood Mac members and Crow. Ultimately, he says, the prospect "just kind of lost its momentum."

"I think with Stevie (Nicks) ... maybe to some degree there was a little too much testosterone on stage when we went out in 2003," Buckingham notes, "and I think the band was looking to kind of balance that out a little bit.

"I think the good side has been, for Stevie, she came to a point of clarity where she realized the most appropriate thing we could do as a band was to create what needs to be created in the context of the four of us. That's been a real positive, and it's been a real rallying point for all of us, too."

The Fleetwood Mac rhythm section of drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie appears on three songs on "Gift of Screws," which was the title of a solo album Buckingham was working on before Fleetwood Mac decided to record "Say You Will."
