Just been listening to the new Liam & Neil Finn album on which Mick Fleetwood plays drums on a couple of tracks. It is a two way street.

Those clips are actually kind of fascinating. Mike Campbell's solo on The Chain sounds entirely like Mike Campbell and nothing like Lindsay Buckingham. It is a sort of Fleetwood Mac & The Heartbreakers hybrid. It must feel like a strange gig for Mike who has effectively only played with one band for the last 45 years.

Neil seems to fit in perfectly easily though I'm betting he won't stay with them beyond this tour (however long that turns out to be). I'd go see 'em but not for the money they will probably charge if and when they get here.

Surprised they don't do The Boys Of Summer, Mike co-wrote it.

Mr Buckingham isn't a happy bunny about the current situation

You are just discovering this now? The entire last 40+ years of their career has been all about this particular soap opera.

It is very telling that Mike Campbell is now in the band (and possibly unwise of him to have taken the gig) as Stevie Nicks has repeatedly tried to leave Fleetwood Mac to join the Heartbreakers since the early 80s but Tom Petty, very sensibly, would not let her. She nevertheless gatecrashed their gigs at every opportunity.

Buckingham seems reasonable.  Nicks sounds, as ever, like a pain in the arse.  Fleetwood's attitude is lamentable.
