NEW VIDEO: Stevie Nicks X Factor Australia "Secret Love" + Fleetwood Mac medley

I think Stevie did a really great job on "Secret Love"... She was certainly making the most of her few minutes on stage in front of a national audience... She looked great! GO STEVIE!  Little confused on the "new single" angle... Thought it was released in Australia back in May like the rest of the world?

X Factor finalists performing Fleetwood Mac Medley "Little Lies" "Don't Stop" "Go Your Own Way"
They actually did a pretty amazing job I thought!

Fleetwood Mac & Stevie Nicks make huge gains on Australian Albums Charts + NEW Interview Tuesday!

Photo by JoAnn Kowalski
In the lead up to opening night of Stevie's 10 date In Your Dreams Australian tour this Saturday in Melbourne, both Best Of albums from Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks make some pretty healthy gains on both the Album Charts and the Catalogue Charts in Australia.

These increases can be credited to Stevie's being in the country promoting her new album In Your Dreams as well as her tour since the beginning of November.  She's been scheduled on multiple radio programs covering most of the nation - so the awareness that she's in Australia... That she's touring is there - Hopefully all the press she's receiving ignites interest in what she's really there for - to promote her amazing new album In Your Dreams!!

So far the national radio broadcaster ABC has aired numerous interviews with Stevie on a variety of shows covering multiple territories in Australia - with more to come I'm sure.  Today alone (Nov 14th) she appeared on Breakfast with Adam Spencer on 702 ABC Sydney + 4KQ 693AM Brisbane.

Stevie's scheduled to appear on Perth's 96FM Breakfast program with Fitzi and Carmen.  The show airs from 5:30am-9:00am, so check it out if you can by streaming the program live HERE!

Also on Tuesday Stevie will be interviewed one-on-one by Melissa Doyle on Sunrise Channel 7  The show airs weekday mornings 6:00am-7:00am. The interview segment will air at 7:40am  Later Tuesday night Stevie will appear and perform on Australia's X Factor - so definitely check that out!

In the next week or so Stevie's interview with Fenella Kernebone should be on Australia's Art Nation on ABC (Date TBA).  

So it's been a busy couple of weeks for Stevie in Australia... She's working hard!

Fleetwood Mac "The Definitive History" Book - Highly Recommend!

Fleetwood Mac - The Definitive History
Published October 4, 2011
by Mike Evans
288 pages 
Size: 12 x 9.4 x 1.4 inches

On aesthetics alone this book gets a pass! It's stellar!  It's a huge book, almost textbook like in size and weight with thick pages, loads of pictures filling each page with old pieces of documentation marking Fleetwood Mac's history.  The way the book is layed out in almost a scrapbook type form is really cool and fun to look at!  The book runs the gamut from the beginning in the 60's up until the Unleashed Tour in 2009 and includes the solo careers of Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Christine McVie and Mick Fleetwood with their first initial solo albums detailed and how their solo careers fit into the time-line of Fleetwood Mac.

Really good looking cover... Even the book without the cover is stunning.  Would make a perfect coffee table book! and for the price on Amazon.com of $19.77 it's an absolute bargain.

The photos below give you an example of the book layout, but don't do the book justice.. There's just so much in it.  Any Fleetwood Mac fan would be pleased to own this. 

Amazon Description:
Can't stop thinking about Fleetwood Mac? This lavish, in-depth volume tells all about the legendary group: its music, tours, awards, turbulent personal relationships, and more.

Review: Lindsey Buckingham "Seeds We Sow" "dream-like atmosphere throughout the album ""

Lindsey Buckingham – Seeds We Sow (Eagle/Shock)

In between touring and recording with Fleetwood Mac, Lindsey Buckingham has nurtured a solo career, reaching back to 1981. Following up on 2008’s Gift Of Screws, comes Seeds We Sow, Buckingham’s 6th studio solo outing.

While Lindsey is a fine singer and songwriter, it’s really his guitar playing that stands out on the 11 tracks included here. Buckingham has developed his own, unique sound, based around his delicate finger-picking and he using the technique to full advantage on songs like That’s The Way Love Goes, Stars Are Crazy and Rock Away Blind. His rippling notes seem to flow off the fretboard.

Sonically, Buckingham induces a dream-like atmosphere throughout the album thanks to his lyrics, which often refer to dreams, and his layered vocals.
