Catch STEVIE NICKS on the Big Screen with Dave Stewart in Nashville

Dave Stewart to Debut "The Blackbird Diaries" and "The Ringmaster General" Documentary August 22, 2012 at the Belcourt Theatre in Nashville.

Description: "This tongue-in-cheek documentary follows Stewart's adventures in songwriting, letting the viewer witness his eccentric but compelling methods of creativity.  The days were filled with mayhem and martinis, while a circus of characters cross Stewart's path; many muses appear to join in the fun including Alison Krauss, Martina McBride, Colbie Caillat, The Secret Sisters, Joss Stone, STEVIE NICKS, Jessie Baylin, Diane Birch and Orianthi."

There are a limited number of general admission tickets available to the public for this VIP Event which go on-sale June 1st at  Each ticket includes a free limited edition vinyl copy of Dave's forthcoming "The Ringmaster General" album which isn't released in the US until September 4th (Sept 3rd in the UK).

An alternative to seeing the Documentary in Nashville is to order Dave's new wine "The Ringmaster General" from Mollydooker Wines which is gift packaged with a DVD of songs from both albums plus the 90 minute documentary on the making of The Blackbird Diaries and The Ringmaster General.

Place orders through Dave Stewarts on-line store.

Maybe this will be the route for Stevie's yet to be released In Your Dreams Documentary, which by the way, Dave tweeted about just a few days ago saying that distribution was still being set up for the release.

Nicks Nixes Interview Footage on New Music with Buckingham

Lindsey Buckingham Talks Possible Nicks Reunion 
In new radio documentary by Pete Paphides, Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham says "I would love to work with Stevie [Nicks] again"
The Quietus

Less than 24 hours remain to listen to last weeks broadcast from BBC4 on "Follow-up Albums" featuring Fleetwood Mac's "Tusk".  Pete Paphides 3 part documentary on bands that made a splash with an album only to follow it up with a left turn.  Great piece on the band with new interviews from Lindsey and Stevie.

Catch it at the BBC4 website

The above headline grabbing headline from The Quietus article opens a topic that has come up again and again regarding the idea of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks reuniting as a duo (Buckingham Nicks).  It's a topic that's come up in the past, something the fan community would certainly welcome and what most people expect to happen if and when the Buckingham Nicks album ever sees the light of day on CD.  Their first and only album together from 1973 has never been released on CD.  Lindsey and Stevie both own the album have have the rights to do whatever they want with it.. and both have blamed each other for it not happening.  With the 40th anniversary (yes 40th, if you can believe that!) of the album approaching (2013). It would be the perfect opportunity to bring some attention to this really great album... Either re-release it as a stand alone, or record some new music together and release it as a double album, kind of a then and now... I think it would be cool!  Then do some live shows!

Anyway... the REALLY interesting part of this article is where Pete Paphide apparently confirms with The Quietus that portions of Stevie's interview regarding Lindsey working on new songs which he hoped the two of them could record together had been edited out of the interview footage by someone on Stevie's staff, who recorded the interview... Pete apparently also said that Lindsey was inspired to write the new music by the death of Stevie's mother whom he had known since both he and Stevie were teenagers.  Pete also said that Stevie was to meet up with Lindsey the day after their interview together.  What that meeting would have been about is unknown.  Could have been about the new music or the future of Fleetwood Mac.

"When we spoke to Paphides, he confirmed that when he interviewed Nicks for the programme (in a section that was never broadcast), she had mentioned that Buckingham had been working on some new songs, seemingly with a view to record them together. He had been inspired to do so after the death of Nicks' mother, whom he had known since he and Nicks got together as teenagers. Nicks was apparently due to meet Buckingham the day after Paphides' interview took place. The interview, Paphides explained, was recorded by one of Nicks' staff, and when it was sent back to him that section had been deleted."

Lindsey Buckingham is a rare mega rock star who sounds as easy with a scream as he does with a whisper

Lindsey Buckingham goes his own way
By George Lenker

Although he is neither a Fleetwood nor a Mac, Lindsey Buckingham is as responsible as anyone for the massive success of the band that combined those two names.

Buckingham and his then-romantic partner Stevie Nicks transformed a solid but little-known British blues band into a monster hit-making machine in the 1970s. Penning such hits as "Go Your Own Way," "The Chain," and "Second Hand News," Buckingham showed both great pop sensibilities and the ability to push the band in new directions. While 1975's "Fleetwood Mac" and 1977's "Rumours" showcased mostly catchy pop fare, 1979's "Tusk" found Buckingham pushing Fleetwood Mac in more adventurous directions.

Since his Fleetwood Mac days, however, the singer-songwriter-guitarist has not exactly rested on his laurels.

Lindsey Buckingham B.B. King Blues Club June 4-5
Wall Street Journal

Lindsey Buckingham is a rare mega rock star who sounds as easy with a scream as he does with a whisper. He's tended more toward the latter in his solo work the past few years, with a lightly brushed folk sound that takes up lyrical subjects such as aging and introspection. But he has a vast and significant songbook, of course, to mine from all of his fateful, fitful years in Fleetwood Mac. In a show here tagged as "An Intimate Evening with…," Mr. Buckingham will perform by himself in a considerably smaller venue than usual, with a set dedicated to his 2011 album "Seeds We Sow," as well as classics from his storied past. He has not been one to shy away from vintage material in general, so expect more than a few hits—all delivered in a solo guitar style that can siphon out the essence of songs that are pure to their core.

Happy Birthday Stevie Nicks... Born On This Day May 26, 1948

ONE YEAR AGO fans filled The Wiltern Theatre in L.A., including myself, to celebrate Stevie's Birthday and also to celebrate the release of her new album "In Your Dreams"... The show was dubbed a "Record Release Concert"  What a party it was!... As you made your way into the theatre you couldn't help but pass by trays of stacked up cupcakes plus this giant 3 panel Birthday card that could signed and I'm assuming was somehow delivered to Stevie later... It was a great night full of new music from the new album and a few surprise guests including Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, Dave Stewart and Mike Campbell.  Although it was Stevie's Birthday and we were there for her, the night it seemed turned out to be an amazing gift back to her fans.

Happy Birthday Stevie!

Fleetwood Mac will re-release the four CD box set "25 Years – The Chain" on June 11th in the UK on Reprise.

25 Years – The Chain was originally released in 20 years ago and compiles seventy-two tracks spanning the band’s history from their formation in 1967 to 1992.

Like the Rod Stewart Storyteller reissue from late last year, 25 Years – The Chain will be available at a bargain price of £11.97 via AmazonUK and comes in new packaging – a double ‘fat box’ CD with a sixty-eight page booklet and outer slip-case.  It's also available in the US as an import for $34.02 or in Canada for $30.34.
