Neil Finn admitted was concerned about negative reactions from Lindsey Buckingham fans upon joining Fleetwood Mac. The Crowded House frontman became part of the group along with Mike Campbell after Buckingham’s acrimonious 2018 departure. In a recent BBC interview, Finn said: “I had no idea whether I was going to have a half a dozen Lindsey fans poking their tongues out. But […]

Crowded House frontman Neil Finn said he’d “gladly step aside” to allow Lindsey Buckingham’s return to Fleetwood Mac. Finn joined the band alongside Mike Campbell in 2018 following Buckingham’s dismissal. While it’s not known if there’s any chance of a reunion, drummer Mick Fleetwood last year revealed the pair was back on speaking terms. “I would […]

The past three months haven’t delivered a huge bounty of reissues and archival recordings, but there have been some great records nonetheless. The usual assortment of deluxe editions, super deluxe editions and vinyl-and-multi-disc-stuffed box sets arrived. But there are also sets dedicated to a lost ’60s band’s entire recording output and an album including the last […]

Former Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham showed up on the season finale of American Idol to perform “Go Your Own Way” with onetime contestant Cassandra Coleman. Buckingham traded lines with Coleman, who added tambourine and appeared in Stevie Nicks-style attire for the Rumours hit. The singer and guitarist appeared to be in good voice last night. He had open-heart surgery in […]

Late Fleetwood Mac founder Peter Green and Pink Floyd‘s David Gilmour unite on a newly released version of “Need Your Love So Bad,” the blues and R&B classic that Green’s band covered in 1968.

A new video features Pink Floyd‘s David Gilmour on steel guitar for a performance of Fleetwood Mac‘s instrumental classic “Albatross,” a song originally composed by founding member Peter Green. The video arrives in anticipation of a full-length concert film honoring the work of Green, who died last year, as well as the early music of Fleetwood Mac. You […]

When Peter Green was putting together the band that would become Fleetwood Mac, he invited Mick Fleetwood to join simply because the drummer was enduring heartbreak at the time. But Fleetwood discovered the truth behind the loving gesture only a few years before guitarist Green died in 2020, as he told Classic Rock in a […]

Mick Fleetwood said the “first mistake” he made in his fledgling music career concerned future Fleetwood Mac bandmate Peter Green. At the time, the drummer had just recently started playing with other musicians. He’d practiced alone for several years until future Camel keyboardist Peter Bardens passed his home, heard the noise and asked him to join Peter […]

The viral video featuring Fleetwood Mac‘s 1977 hit “Dreams” will be auctioned as an NFT — but without the actual song. The Rumours track reentered the charts last fall after appearing in the popular TikTok clip. But due to rights issues, the tune will not be included in the upcoming NFT (non-fungible token) sale of the original video, which shows […]

Mick Fleetwood said he plans to make music with Lindsey Buckingham again, but it may not happen under the Fleetwood Mac name. The band’s founding drummer previously credited the July 2020 death of founding guitarist Peter Green as the catalyst that brought an end to a bitter estrangement between him and Buckingham. The singer and guitarist was fired […]
