Fleetwood Mac to Revisit Blues Catalogue
10 May 2018
Following the departure of Lindsey Buckingham from Fleetwood Mac, the band is set to revisit its extensive blues catalogue from the Peter Green era for its upcoming tour this fall.
In a recent Rolling Stone interview, Stevie Nicks said, 'We're gonna lock in to the history of Fleetwood Mac, which we were never able to do since 1975.' While bassist John McVie said, 'I felt very comfortable when we rehearsed,' before adding, 'It's another exciting chapter in the book, in the saga.'
Fleetwood Mac's founding member and drummer, Mick Fleetwood recently released a Genesis signed limited edition, Love That Burns
documenting the early years of the band during the British blues boom, from 1967-1974.
This insider's account includes commentary from Peter Green, and other original Fleetwood Mac members including Jeremy Spencer, Christine McVie and John McVie.
Fleetwood said of Peter Green, 'he had a presence about him, and that of course came through in his writing. The power of what he created in such a short space of time, and the collateral effect of other players, is a testament to who he was.'
'I don't think there's anything Peter touched that wasn't special. He was so great.' - Mick Fleetwood
