When it comes to tackling such a big yet different kind of project it is understandable to some times have doubts. Members of Fleetwood Mac were no different when it came to putting together the upcoming Buckingham-McVie album (due out June 9th).
In a recent interview with Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie (which can be viewed in the video above) these doubts are discussed, but then put to rest when Buckingham says:
“One of the things we thought about was to create an environment that was a departure, but also one that was familiar and felt like home. We immediately thought of John and Mick, the greatest rhythm section there is. It was a wonderful idea on paper. Whether or not that played out remained to be seen. We didn’t go in assuming it was going to be wonderful. We knew we loved each other and we wanted to do it. But whether the process would be as enlightening and effortless as it seems to have been was another question.”
It's understandable that they might have been unsure at first, but from the looks and sounds of things it's turning out to be a great album. I'm kind of glad that Fleetwood Mac is in some form moving forward despite lead vocalist Stevie Nicks not wanting to do another album as a band. Personally I am betting that the band will sound even better without her because Buckingham and McVie are way better singers and songwriters.
