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.
For the first time since one of their founders was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year, Fleetwood Mac will return to the stage with a couple of concerts. The band will say goodbye to an eventful 2013 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas for a public show tonight and a private date on New Year’s Eve.
Here's a thought. How about getting John McVie some recognition for his birthday? The bassist and one of the founding members of Fleetwood Mac is often overlooked amongst some of the band's bigger personalities. Meanwhile, he stands toward the back of the stage laying down some killer bass licks.
