Fleetwood Mac fans have waited nearly 30 years for the band's classic 'Rumours'-era lineup to record a new studio album. If recent reports are accurate, it looks like their wait might finally be almost over.
The guitar line that follows a young man in the latest Bank of America commercial as he buys a bouquet of flowers, catches a cab and knocks on an apartment door is unmistakable. Any one of the 40 million people who've purchased Fleetwood Mac's 'Rumours' since its 1977 release will recognize the guitar pattern from 'Never Going Back Again.'
"This is the worst kept secret there is, but Christine McVie will be rejoining Fleetwood Mac." That's the way drummer Mick Fleetwood broke some very good -- and not entirely unexpected -- news to a concert crowd in Hawaii last night.
It takes a lot of fortitude to log nearly five decades in a band as infamously tempestuous as Fleetwood Mac, so even though he isn't the most vocal fellow in the group, we know John McVie is a strong person. And according to McVie's longtime bandmate Stevie Nicks, it's that strength that will pull him through his recent cancer scare.
Fleetwood Mac closed out 2013 with two shows at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Dec. 30 and Dec. 31. The concerts marked the first performances of the band since bassist John McVie was diagnosed with cancer, which canceled its fall tour of Australia.
