Sheryl Crow to join Fleetwood Mac

 
  • Sheryl Crow to join Fleetwood Mac

    Move over, Stevie: Sheryl Crow is planning to join Fleetwood Mac.



    "We definitely have plans for collaborating in the future, and we'll see what happens," Crow tells Spinner. As to when fans might hear those collaborations, she says, "I think that's going to be next year."

    And what songs would she ideally like to perform onstage with Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham? "I'd love to do 'The Chain' and 'Second Hand News,'" she says. "There's so many great songs that I absolutely love, and just to get to sing harmonies on them is going to be a thrill."

    For Crow, who is just beginning to tour in support of her recently released 'Detours' album, the opportunity to join the legendary group (and fill the shoes of Christine McVie, who retired from touring in 1998), is a chance to work with her close friend Nicks. Perhaps more important, it will help keep the band alive, as Nicks had previously gone on record as saying she was unwilling to carry on Fleetwood Mac without McVie, who had been one of the constants of the often-evolving group since she joined in the early '70s.

    According to Crow, Nicks has been a major influence in her life as an artist. "I love people that are not jaded or de-sensitized and that are still really into what they're doing and into growing as an artist, and that's her," Crow says. "She'd walk out and stand at the microphone, and I swear I was looking at a 20-year-old, because she just exudes this kind of sensual love for music."

    good idea

    i always love new personnel in fleetwood mac. sheryl would be fresh blood and a bunch of new ideas. she'd never replace godess christine however.

  • Um...I'm pretty sure Fleetwood Mac is not reuniting again. Stevie and Lindsey are on their own tours. Something irks me about Sheryl joining, perhaps because I am so attached to the fab five that is Stevie, Lindsey, Mick, John, and Christine...there is so much history between them even without Christine, so Sheryl just kind of...breaks that bond for a devoted fan like me.
