NEW on BBC Radio 2: Fleetwood Mac: Don't Stop - Feb 17th

Fleetwood Mac: Don't Stop
Duration: 1 hour, 56 minutes
First broadcast: Sunday 17 February 2013 15:00 (3pm)
BBC Radio 2 - Johnnie Walker's Sounds of the 70's

Johnnie Walker re-visits the decade that brought us Pan's People, Punk and Pink Floyd. This week's show is dedicated to one of the most enduring and beloved albums of the 1970's: 'Rumours' by Fleetwood Mac.

35 years on, with 45 million copies sold, the confessional 1977 LP from a band embroiled in personal drama still sounds as compelling and fresh as it did on release. Johnnie talks to the drummer who leant his name to the band, Mick Fleetwood, about how the album came to be written.

'Rumours' was the work of the second incarnation of Fleetwood Mac, at the turn of the 1970's founder member and blues guitarist Peter Green left the band. The next few years gave a flavour of what was to come; a revolving door of troubled band members and relationship drama. In 1974 Mick Fleetwood, along with John and Christine McVie recruited Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks and 'Rumours'-era Fleetwood Mac was born. Mick talks to Johnnie about life in the Fleetwood Mac bubble, from the relationship dynamics of the band to drug abuse and rock and roll decadence and the strange alchemy that produced such iconic songs as 'Dreams', 'Go Your Own Way' and 'The Chain'.

Fleetwood Mac Live 1977 Rumours Tour: "This is the holy grail for Mac fans"

Fleetwood Mac, “Rumors: Deluxe Anniversary Edition” (Warner Bros., three discs). 

It’s certainly not news that Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumors” is a pop masterpiece, a high-water mark in the annals of ’70s California-based rock and pop. Very few self-respecting record collectors or rock historians would consider their collection complete without it. We all know the story of its creation – how the songs reflected the romantic turmoil within the band, as various relationships crumbled, principally the very torrid one between singer Stevie Nicks and guitarist/songwriter Lindsey Buckingham. What we may not know is what a fantastic live ensemble this particular lineup of Fleetwood Mac was. This new anniversary edition gives us a beautifully remastered version of the original album, with the inclusion of the revered outtake “Silver Springs” tacked on, and a whole disc’s worth of alternate versions and outtakes, too. But the grand prize is the full live concert from the 1977 “Rumors” world tour, which takes up a full disc. This is the holy grail for Mac fans, and makes the anniversary edition a must-have. 4 stars (Jeff Miers - The Buffalo News).

The Live component of the re-release can be streamed in it's entirety at Rolling Stone.

Rumours Expanded Edition (3XCD) Available now at Amazon or iTunes

Despite tragedies, drug excesses and separations it Fleetwood Mac 1977 managed to take one of the most successful pop albums. Now the united band is back on tour and released anniversary edition is one of "Rumours". "Go Your Own Way" and "Dreams" - these sellers are selling the album "Rumours" publish 45 million times, although it appeared 36 years ago, Fleetwood Mac a "35th Anniversary Edition" with three albums (including session recordings and live recordings). As a blues band Fleetwood Mac 1967 have begun. After Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks got on and changed the sound toward Softpop and mainstream rock, came the great success. Even the album "Fleetwood Mac" could sit up, followed with "Rumours" then the climax: 31 weeks, the album was number one on the Billboard charts and received a Grammy. In the list of "500 greatest albums of all time" by the magazine "Rolling Stone" is "Rumours" in the top 30 During the recording there was the purest sense of chaos. Singer Stevie Nicks has compared the history of Fleetwood Mac with a soap opera: The marriage of Christine and John McVie was as broken as the relationship of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. Drummer Mick Fleetwood was allegedly having an affair with Stevie Nicks. The well-known in an interview with "U.S. Magazine": "It was quite scandalous and incestuous." All these feelings dramas and separations were finally processed in the songs. The Canadian newspaper "The Globe and Mail" called "Rumours" even the "unofficial soundtrack to the distinctive culture". The History of Fleetwood Mac but is not over: The band, which was recorded in 1998 in the "Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame", has reunited and goes on To urnee - to Germany. In October, she will be in Cologne, Stuttgart and Berlin - but without Christine McVie.

Fleetwood Mac: Love, Hate and Betrayals

Fleeting glimpse of pre-sale Mac seats
Evening Times

FLEETWOOD Mac’s loyal fans who registered on a ticket presales site are furious after being offered only single seats for their Glasgow gig.

The band line-up of Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham will be among the first to grace the stage at new city venue The Hydro this autumn with their Rumours 35th anniversary tour.

Fans who had registered with the Hydro website were on wednesday given an early chance to get their hands on tickets but the pre-sale allocation quickly ran out.

Another pre-sale, held yesterday for people who had signed up to distributor Ticket Soup’s website, also saw the second allocation quickly snapped up as keen fans swooped.

Now anyone still chasing much-soughtafter tickets will have to hope they are lucky in the public sale which began this morning.

one disgruntled music lover from Glasgow, said: “I am signed up to thehydro.com and I had hoped to be able to get a pair of tickets in the presale on wednesday but all that was available was single seats … I am really disappointed.

“I thought that with a venue that has a 12,000 capacity and with such a high profile concert I would have been in with a good chance of landing them.”

Tickets for the concert, to be staged on october 3, range in price from £45 to £125.

The SECC confirmed that a certain amount were allocated to the pre-sales and some held back for today’s general release but they would not confirm how many were up for grabs on each day.

A spokeswoman said demand for tickets had been “very strong”

She added: “There were two pre sales – on wednesday and Thursday – and a general release today.

“The pre-sales were well advertised on our website.”

Fleetwood Mac last toured the UK in 2009 with the sold-out Unleashed Tour.

New venue the Hydro is due to open in September and the showcase event will have a Commonwealth Games theme to reflect the spor ts extravaganza which will get under way in Glasgow in the summer of next year.
