Fleetwood Mac’s Songbird: Christine McVie
BBC Four, 9pm

Christine McVie and Stevie Nicks in 1987

As always with BBC Four’s rock-doc tributes, the eulogies flow freely over introductory footage, in this case of Fleetwood Mac taking the stage at Wembley this summer. Anyone who was there will have been reminded how Christine McVie is the band’s not-so-secret weapon. Not only did she write their most beguiling hits (Songbird, You Make Loving Fun, Don’t Stop, Everywhere), her voice is a thing to cherish — a warm, bluesy thing, a world away from today’s bombastic divas. She is the longest-serving female member of any of the rock ’n’ roll acts that emerged from the 1960s, but this profile reminds us that she was famous before the Mac, as Christine Perfect, in the band Chicken Shack, singing their 1968 hit I Would Rather Go Blind. Then she saw Fleetwood Mac, met their bassist John McVie and the rest is rock history — mega-selling albums, cocaine, divorce, make-ups, seclusion in Kent, comeback glory. All covered in this rock-doc. Mrs McVie talks about how she was initially jealous of Stevie Nicks who took the spotlight while Christine was stuck behind the piano. Yet they also bonded as two women in rock’s boys’ club. “I told her, we will be a force to be reckoned with for all these men that surround us,” recalls Nicks. Christine talks of the infamous decadence during the Rumours era — she wrote You Make Loving Fun about the lighting guy with whom she was having an affair — one that was kept from John despite Christine singing the song on stage every night. At least the music was great. She also recalls her relationship with Beach Boy wild man Dennis Wilson, “really sweet man” but also a “nut”. Quite a life for an unassuming girl from Smethwick.

Songs appear on forthcoming compilation, ‘Solo Anthology – The Best of Lindsey Buckingham’

Lindsey Buckingham performed two songs from his forthcoming album, Solo Anthology –The Best of Lindsey Buckingham on Monday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live. The anthology – comprising album, live and alternate versions of songs culled from Buckingham’s solo, collaborative and soundtrack material – bows on October 5th via Rhino.

On Kimmel, Buckingham performed “Trouble,” which first appeared as the lead single to his solo debut, 1981’s Law and Order. He also delivered “Soul Drifter,” a song originally from his third solo effort, 1992’s Out of the Cradle. Backed by his four-piece band, Buckingham tenderly sang the songs, buoyed by the group’s harmonies.

Buckingham embarks on a North American fall tour beginning October 7th in Portland, Oregon, at Revolution Hall and it wraps in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, on December 9th. The 34-date trek is his first tour since he was fired from Fleetwood Mac in April.

Fans delirious as Stevie Nicks joins Tom Petty on stage | BBC News

It was Side A all the way when Tom Petty played the BST festival in Hyde Park on Sunday.

“We’re going to look at the show like it’s a giant one-sided vinyl,” said the star, “and we’re going to drop the needle all up and down the record.”

The set included nearly two dozen classics, such as Free Fallin’, I Won’t Back Down and Learning To Fly.

Stevie Nicks joined him halfway through the set for a special version of their 1981 hit Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around.

“You know that Tom Petty is my favourite rock star!” said the singer.

Nicks had earlier played a support slot, running through her Fleetwood Mac songbook with renditions of Dreams and Gold Dust Woman, alongside solo hits Edge of Seventeen and Landslide.

After playing Rhiannon, the 69-year-old noted she’d played the song at every concert since it was released in 1975.

“It’s never not been done,” she deadpanned. “Rhiannon: You just can’t get rid of her.”

Nicks also delved into her pre-fame catalogue with the Buckingham-Nicks song Crying In The Night which, she noted, was written in 1970, when she was a struggling musician working as a waitress in LA.

“Dreams do come true,” she told the audience. “Because 44 years later you can sing a song you thought nobody would ever hear in Hyde Park in London, England.” Continue reading Fans delirious as Stevie Nicks joins Tom Petty on stage | BBC News
