Stevie Nicks "I'm never making another record without Dave Stewart"

"If I can drag Dave into the making of the next Fleetwood Mac record I think that would be great. I think Lindsey would be glad not to be the producer." - Clash Magazine August, 2011

According to this article, Rumours is to be re-released in the Autumn. Interesting! I'm still wondering what ever happened to the CD/DVD version of Rumours that was supposed to be re-released to coincide with the Unleashed Tour back in 2009 (according to all the press releases about the tour.)
