Rock Talk with Drew Darkwell #16 – Fleetwood Mac
Holy smokes, Fleetwood Mac is everywhere lately! Why you ask? Firstly because long time band member, Lindsey Buckingham was recently let go from the group after his 2nd tenure with the group (which spanned 22 years, and that isn’t even counting the first time that he was in the band.)
Look, I love Fleetwood Mac. “Landslide” is one of the greatest ballads of all time, and “Rhiannon” and “The Chain” are just downright cool. I’ve supported this band for a long time, but to me, it’s not Fleetwood Mac without Lindsey Buckingham. That would be like Led Zeppelin without Jimmy Page.
But that isn’t the only reason The Mac is getting attention lately. “Dreams” off of the 1979 hit album “Rumors” is back on the billboard charts, coming in at number 16 on the Hot Rock Songs list. Check out the video to find out why Buckingham is no longer in the picture, and why “Dreams” has been so popular lately.
