Last weekend, on a gorgeous evening, I took the missus to see Fleetwood Mac at Jones Beach Theater.
They were never my kinda band, although I will admit to liking the album Fleetwood Mac. Their breakout hit, Rumors, was too commercial for me, lacking much of an edge. (Bill Clinton adopted Don’t Stop (thinking about tomorrow) as his campaign theme song)
The years have treated the songs surprisingly well — they more or less hold up. My guess is because of what an interesting and brilliant guitarist Lindsey Buckingham is. (I had no idea prior). Stevie Nicks has a huge fan base who adore her, but I found her sincere but a bit ditzy, and she seemingly messed up the lyrics to Rhiannon.
They are doing a national tour, and I assume they are going to get tighter as the shows go on. If you are a fan, you are encouraged to go. Everyone else can skip it.
