June 4, 1979 — Fleetwood Mac gathers the USC Trojan Marching Band and a crew of hundreds at Dodger Stadium to record the title track to “Tusk,” the follow-up to “Rumours.” The album is released on October 12, 1979.
The band’s a mess — John McVie is battling with Buckingham. But no matter — Mick Fleetwood’s brainchild comes to fruition and the film crew captures enough for an official video. Fleetwood Mac presents the USC Trojan Marching Band with a Platinum record the following year.
t’s my favorite Zevon album and it’s released on May 18, 1976.
It’s his second and some of his friends help out on the album: Jackson Browne, Glenn Frey, Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, Phil Everly, Don Henley, Bobby Keys, Bonnie Raitt, J.D. Souther, Waddy Watchel and David Lindley.
May 15, 1975 ~ 45 years ago today, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks perform live for the first time as members of Fleetwood Mac.
Fleetwood Mac has been around forever with various members coming and going — Bob Welch, Peter Green, etc. But no one can deny The Mac’s hey days were the 70’s and their work with Lindsey Buckingham. To tour without him — to fire him — is an abomination and anyone’s efforts to promote a Fleetwood Mac tour without him is a joke. Yea, you gotta make a buck and, unfortunately, that’s all any tour without Buck is: a fleecing of Fleetwood Mac fans.
Fleetwood Mac have canceled the remainder of their North American tour, including an appearance at New Orleans Jazz Fest , due to singer Stevie Nicks ’ bout with the flu. “While she is feeling better already, management has consulted with her doctors and have decided to reschedule the remaining four shows of their North American tour to allow for her full recovery,” the band said in a statement.
