Mick Fleetwood Discusses Band’s New Members

Fleetwood Mac will hit the road with a new lineup as they gear up for their new An Evening with Fleetwood Mac tour, set to launch on October 3. “Change is not an unfamiliar thing in Fleetwood Mac,” drummer and co-founder Mick Fleetwood tells Billboard. Lindsay Buckingham departed Fleetwood Mac earlier this year and was replaced by guitarist Mike Campbell and Crowded House frontman Neil Finn. “If you look at the track record of this crazy outfit known as Fleetwood Mac over the last 50-odd years, change is not an unfamiliar thing. We don’t look at it in a flippant way or in a light way,” Mick Fleetwood said. “This is a huge change. But we went into it with spirit and knew that it was really, really good and had to feel right. And now we are able to say that and feel that and, now, play that. That’s how we got where we are. It’s a big decision and it had to be right, and with Mike and Neil that spirit has been ignited in a way that made this really make sense.” Fleetwood thinks that, “one of the amazing things is both Mike and Neil have their own credibility in their own right from their careers, but they were thrilled to be playing songs that are not their songs.” “The amount of absolute pleasure they’re having in playing these songs energizes the rest of us, and of course their own styles have affected some of the things we’re doing, which is invigorating,” he adds. “They have huge deference to what we’re doing and huge respect for this long story which is Fleetwood Mac, but they bring their own substance and we’re having fun reinterpreting a couple things here and there which I think is going to be different and fun for our audience, too.” Copyright(c) 2018 RTTNews.com.
