Video: Stevie Nicks Performing on Good Morning America

Stevie took to the stage today in Central Park, New York City... The last half hour of GMA was pretty much owned by Stevie save for a bar-b-q segment... We saw a clip of her performing Stand Back first.. Then a short clip of her rocking the tambourine to Ghosts Are Gone and then the full live versions of Landslide and For What it's Worth.  Surprise of surprises.. Mike Campbell of The Heartbreakers who wrote For What It's Worth was there to perform the song with her.  Stevie played out the show with Rhiannon.  Steive and her band looked awesome and sounded amazing for a tv show which is a rarity as the sound mix can often sound pretty bad.. Great job guys!

Things are starting to ramp up in the promotion dept. for Lindsey... We'll start seeing press and tv coverage over the next couple of weeks as the album release date nears.

Jerry Penacoli (Extra TV) met up with Lindsey today at his home and posted this photo to his facebook page saying that Lindsey sang his new single "Seeds We Sow" live acapella.

Also, Sandy Cohen of the Associated Press interviewed Lindsey at his home today... She tweeted that it was so cool to interview him as she has been listening to his music all her life thanks to her mother.

Still following her ‘Dreams’

Stevie Nicks tours behind new album that takes her in many different directions

Stevie Nicks will twirl her way to the stage of the Bank of America Pavilion on Monday, and she’s thrilled to be hitting the road in support of her latest solo release, “In Your Dreams,’’ her first in a decade and what she calls one of the best of her career.

Produced and partially co-written by erstwhile Eurythmic Dave Stewart - with help from Glen Ballard - at a studio in Nicks’s Los Angeles home, the album finds the Fleetwood Mac chanteuse covering a lot of ground. She spreads her patented brand of mystical glitter on everything from the emotional ode to our troops “Soldier’s Angel,’’ featuring Mac compatriot Lindsey Buckingham on guitar and vocals, to the expansive rocker “Wide Sargasso Sea.’’

We chatted with Nicks recently on the phone from LA.  Check out that interview here

Review: Stevie Nicks Mystic Lake Ampitheater - Twin Cities Metro

A Landslide of Awesome! 
By: Mary O'Regan
Twin Cities Metro 

The best thing about Stevie Nicks is that she knows she's a rockstar and she's not afraid to say it. During her enthralling performance at Mystic Lake Ampitheater last night, Nicks told several stories about her life as a musical legend, including one about visiting soldiers in Iraq—a surprise medevac left her humbled as her celebrity status went out the window and parametics pushed her toward the exit. "I arrived a rockstar and left a soldier's mother," she said, before launching into "Soldier's Angel," off her new album, "In Your Dreams."

One of the best parts of the evening was when Nicks introduced her band members. She'd known many of them for thirty or forty years, which made for some gracious, touching stories. She recalled attempting to film a music video at El Mirage Lake in California. They drove for miles, trying to find a lake that got further and further away the closer they came.

Check out the >> 2 Bonus Tracks << For Lindsey Buckingham's New Album... Listen!

Amazon in the US now have the album sampler up to pre-listen to Lindsey's new "Seeds We Sow" album (in stores September 6th).

12. End of Time (Acoustic)
13. Seeds We Sow (Electric)

Quite different from the standard album versions.  Not sure if these are exclusive tracks to the mp3 album download or if Amazon or another retailer will offer the hard copy album with the bonus tracks... Hope it's the latter if this is the mp3 album.

In any case... They sound great!

Fleetwood Mac: No Recording Plans...Yet

Fleetwood Mac have no definite commitments for the future. 

Talking to Classic Rock, guitarist/vocalist Lindsey Buckingham denied reports that the band are currently working on a new album.

“We’ve nothing like that going on at all. Stevie (Nicks) has been busy touring and I’m just about to release my new solo album (Seeds We Sow, out on September 5) and have plans to tour on the back of that. So, right now nothing’s booked for the band.

“However, I would be very surprised if we don’t make a new album at some point. Currently, I have eight or nine new song ideas, some of which might fit in with Fleetwood Mac.”

Review: Stevie Nicks, old and new | Mystic Lake Casino Amphitheatre

by: Claude Peck
Star Tribune  

Stevie Nicks, whose distinctive voice helped propel Fleetwood Mac into the pop-music record books, is still recording and touring at 63. Her fans caused a miles-long traffic jam Wednesday night near Mystic Lake Casino in the Twin Cities, where she and her tight 10-piece band performed at the new outdoors amphitheater.

After a sundown set by warmup act Michael Grimm, Nicks appeared onstage without much diva fanfare. The 5-foot-one pop star wore stacked black boots, chain-metal-fringed gloves, a crimson shawl over a black dress, her long blond hair catching the cool breeze. She opened her 14-song set with the uptempo hit “Stand Back” from her 1983 solo album “The Wild Heart.”
