Singer and songwriter says she would like to return to band she left 15 years ago – if they want her back
When Christine McVie joined her old band, Fleetwood Mac, onstage during their recent shows at the O2 in London, it was billed as little more than a special treat for fans.
Yet the group’s singer, keyboardist and songwriter seems to have caught the bug and has said she would like to rejoin permanently. “I like being with the band, the whole idea of playing music with them,” she said. “I miss them all. If they were to ask me I would probably be very delighted … but it hasn’t happened so we’ll have to wait and see.” Continue reading

Stevie Nicks will release what’s being billed as an “intimate” documentary, titled In Your Dreams, on December 3rd. The film will chronicle the making of the Fleetwood Mac singer’s 2011 solo album, In Your Dreams – a period she has called “the greatest year of my life.” When it was released, In Your Dreams was Nicks’ first album in a decade, and it featured several songs cowritten and coproduced by Eurythmics founder Dave Stewart. Stewart also co-produced and co-directed the documentary.

The film will be available in different configurations, one of which – the limited-edition deluxe DVD bundle – comes with a copy of the film signed by Nicks, a limited-edition handwritten letter by Nicks and never-before-seen photos. It is currently sold out. Fans seeking an autograph, however, can attend a DVD signing at Barnes and Noble at the Grove in Hollywood on December 4th at 7:00 pm.
The documentary shines a light on Nicks’s personal life, according to a press release, and shows her writing songs, tap-dancing and attending costume parties and feasts. It’s said to include cameos by Mick Fleetwood, Reese Witherspoon and, quizzically, Edgar Allan Poe, as well as a white stallion, owls and “vampires” who appear in “home video–style music videos.” Lastly, it also includes a look at previously unseen seen pictures of Nicks’s childhood and several candid photos taken over the past 35 years.

WITH ITS VIEWS OF THE: PALATIAL architecture along London’s Victoria Embankment, the Corinthia hotel is a very Stevie Nicks establishment. Formerly the Metropole, it was once home to saucy wartime liaisons and secret (service) assignations. However, there was a time when the penthouse suite’s current occupant could have trumped any of the Metropole’s former residents for illicit adventure…

Even at 65, and after countless interrogations over the years, Fleetwood Mac ‘ s femme fatale still loves to unpack the details of her epic life. “That ‘s why I’m here,” she says, her soft brown eyes peering over dark tinted glasses. She pulls up a footstool and draws a cushion to her chest. “That’s why I got the ﬁreplace so sweet for us.” Continue reading
