I don’t believe this. A new album and world tour.

Also, he sung on a song titled “The Toy Master,” which is by a band put together by Tobias Sammet.

http://www.tobiassammet.com/eng/Music.htm

The song is definitely Alice Cooper.

Just got James Taylor’s new concert DVD — one of the best I’ve ever seen, for sure. He’s doing GREAT at 60. Hilariously funny, too.

This is a “fly in the wall camera” in Stevie Nicks’ dressing room in 1981, while she was singing a raw version of what would become the title track of her 1983 album, “Wild Heart”:

Are you a Fleetwood Mac fan?

I was suprised to find that Mick Fleetwood's first wife and her sister ran with the 'big boys.'

"His ex-wife, Jenny Boyd, is the sister of Pattie Boyd, who married George Harrison and Eric Clapton. Fleetwood referred to Harrison as his brother-in-law, in his autobiography."

Eric Clapton's song Layla was about Pattie Boyd and Donovan's song Jennifer was about Jenny, Mick's wife. George Harrison had an affair with Ringo's wife. It's a wonder they didn't all get an STD, lol.

Stevie Nicks had an affair with Mick and one of their popular songs, Sara, was about it. (You never told me about the fire, etc)

If that wasn't bad enough, Ronnie James Dio, one of the godfathers of metal turns 66 this year. He's teamed back up with some of the Sabbath guys to form Heaven and Hell.

I suppose that being in a rock band is like an incestuous sort of thing.... I did know about Stevie & Mick and about Patty Boyd with Harrison and Clapton.

She still looks good - I say this, and I’m less than half her age. Fleetwood Mac was an amazing group (still is).

Yes...I have about 10 songs of his on the Ipod. I actually wrote a parody of that song a while back called “Blind Girl shooting Darts”.

"Fleetwood Mac was an amazing group (still is)."

Only after the addition of Buckingham and Nicks, IMO.

In honor of the large number of hard Rock/Metal musicians on the list, I'm contributing the following. Glory in its wonder:

You can't kill the metal
The metal will live on
Punk-Rock tried to kill the metal
But they failed, as they were smite to the ground
New-wave tried to kill the metal
But they failed, as they were stricken down to the ground
Grunge tried to kill the metal Ha,hahahahaha
They failed, as they were thrown to the ground
Aargh! yaow! [x2]


[Singing]

No-one can destroy the metal
The metal will strike you down with a vicious blow
We are the vanquished foes of the metal
We tried to win for why we do not know


New-wave tried to destroy the metal, but the metal had its way
Grunge then tried to dethrone the metal, but metal was in the way
Punk-rock tried to destroy the metal, but metal was much too strong
Techno tried to defile the metal, but techno was proven wrong
Yea!


Metal!
It comes from hell!

Oh, absolutely. Lindsey Buckingham is one of the most creative guitarists that’s ever walked the planet as far as I’m concerned.

Ditto. Without Lindsey, I'd never have heard of Fleetwood Mac...the old Peter Green Blues band.

Fleetwood Mac - 1968

It was so cool that Led Zeppelin broke up after John Bonham died, rather then replacing him.

kool?? maybe respectable but as a life long Zeppelin fanatic who was able to see them in '77 I was heart broken in a number of way- the tops being Bonzo passed on my 17th birthday... anyway- the greatest singer of the greatest band then: and now....

Yup. I thought she had turned 60 last year, but I read my facts wrong (several sites have 1947; others have 1948).

I SHOULD KNOW THIS! SHE’S ONE OF MY FAVORITE SINGERS!

So Kate was like the mother hen of the group! Kinda like Grace Slick when she was with Starship in the 80s...she was a good ten years older than the rest of them.

Okay, I admit it, I've had a crush on Stevie Nicks for the past thirty years.

I had a Stevie Nicks poster on the wall about twenty years ago that my teen-age children thought was too cool. My wife never shared their enthusiasm. Go figure.

Like Stevie, I turned sixty this year. Guess it's time to move on, but thanks for the pics Silvie.
