Recently much to the dismay of many Fleetwood Mac fans singer Stevie Nicks stated that she doesn't want to do any more albums. However, we will not be going completely dry. guitarist/vocalist Lindsey Buckingham and keyboardist Christine McVie are putting together a new collaborative album to be titled Buckingham - McVie that will also feature bassist John McVie and drummer Mick Fleetwood. Fleetwood has come forth to express how he feels big things are in store for this album.
In a recent interview with Uncut, Fleetwood talks about how much life, energy, and drive McVie and Buckingham both have and how their album will be something special, saying:
“The crafting of the album became so specifically about Chris and Lindsey some time ago. It came under the heading of music that had to come out. Chris is full of vim and vigor, which is mind-blowing, and I’m really happy for Lindsey, because this is what he most likes to do – putting something together.
This relationship is a real expression of a musical powerhouse that’s come to the fore, and we’re all happy about that. It’s really cool. I think they’ll be walking down some red carpets with this one.”
Personally I'm stoked for this album. Whatever Buckingham and McVie will be nothing short of gold, I'm sure. Plus, I always felt that Nicks was kind of the weak link in Fleetwood Mac anyway. Even if Nicks did participate it would still be great, don't get me wrong. I just think she would be kind of half hearted about it. That said, having everyone else working together with her out of the way will definitely bring about something spectacular.
