Tusk

Forty years ago — 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 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.

It’s #25 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. In 2018, the album was selected for preservation in the National Recording Registry, being deemed “culturally, historically, or artistically significant” by the Library of Congress. It’s simply one of the greatest albums of all time … released on February 4, 1977.

Buckingham Nicks Join Fleetwood Mac

May 15, 1975 ~ 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 this current tour is: a fleecing of Fleetwood Mac fans.
