Fleetwood Mac And Blur Sing-A-Longs Are Expected For Isle Of Wight Festival 2015


Isle of Wight Festival Blur Fleetwood Mac Prodigy Black Keys Billy Idol Groove Armada Paul Oakenfold Charlatans Counting Crows First Aid Kit James Bay Suzanne Vega Foxes Chicks On Speed Sharon Corr Ash James Walsh Honey Ryder

Summer festival season kicks into high gear this weekend with the first big event of the calendar taking place on the south coast. Tens of thousands of people will be heading to Seaclose Park on the Isle of Wight for a bill, which is top heavy on heritage acts that bring with them a sense of nostalgia. While recent years have welcomed the likes of Jay-Z, Calvin Harris and Kings Of Leon to headline, this time round it seems big names with an even bigger back catalogue are being used as the main attraction.

However, many of the headline acts seem to be experiencing a renaissance of sorts. For example, Blur, whose new album 'The Magic Whip', their first since 2003, has won critical acclaim. The former Britpop poster boys will take to the Main Stage on Saturday night in the knowledge that this is one of the first times that UK crowds will get to see this new material given the live treatment. You can expect a set heavy on those new songs, but peppered with all the classic singles, certainly a formula for a memorable festival appearance. It's a similar story for The Prodigy who'll headline the Main Stage on Friday after The Black Keys. Both acts have played the festival in recent years and here they're repeating the joint top billing that was given to Biffy Clyro and Calvin Harris last year. As with Blur, The Prodigy's new album, 'The Day Is My Enemy', has revived interest in the band following an extended period out of the spotlight. Elsewhere, Fleetwood Mac will bring proceedings to a close on Sunday, bolstered by the return of Christine McVie to the band, a set covering Rumours era gems like 'Don't Stop' and 'Songbird' is a strong possibility.

Glastonbury Festival: Just Give Us The Wellies And "We're There" - Fleetwood Mac


Fleetwood Mac Glastonbury Festival

Fleetwood Mac is not making their long-awaited Glastonbury debut this year – the full line up has been announced, the posters have been made. Forget about it. But that doesn’t mean the legendary band won’t in the future, after Christine McVie confirmed the group’s desire to play the world-famous festival to The Daily Star.

Having just picked up her Lifetime Achievement Award at The Ivors, McVie – who re-joined the band full time not long ago, said: "If Michael Eavis provides the wellies I'll be there." It was a double scoop, too, as the singer confirmed that the band is recording another album. "We are making new music right now," she added. "It's half done, then the world tour starts in September."

Christine McVie Is Open To Rejoining Fleetwood Mac Permanently


Fleetwood Mac

Fleetwood Mac's reclusive former member Christine McVie has apparently voiced her interest in once again becoming a full-time member of the acclaimed, reformed group. After leaving the band for good in 1998, McVie came out of retirement in September this year to perform 'Don't Stop' with the rest of the band at London's O2 Arena and since then, it seems as though she's acquired the hunger for performing once again.

Speaking with The Guardian last week, the one-time key member of the group revealed her reason for leaving the band, but said that despite her feelings in 1998, she feels ready to face the world again and team up with the band as they continue to tour. The band are currently on hiatus from touring while Christine's ex-husband John McVie undergoes cancer treatment, however when they do return to the road, McVie's comments have suggested that she might be on the road with them.

Stevie Nicks Has A Lot Of Time For Beyonce Because She's "Not Skanky"


Stevie Nicks Fleetwood Mac Beyonce Knowles Cory Monteith

Beyoncé Knowles Carter is never going to be an artist lacking in fans, and even the artists who may have influenced the 'Grown Woman' singer are full of praise for her, namely, Stevie Nicks. The Fleetwood Mac singer was speaking with The Telegraph recently about the latest Fleetwood reunion, when she gave Bey a glowing review for her level head and the way she handles fame and presents herself to her many adoring fans.

Nicks is a fan of Beyoncé as a person and musician

"Beyoncé's great. She's got her alter ego [Sasha Fierce], but Beyoncé the girl, the woman, is very sweet and nice and polite," Nicks told the paper. She went on to add that the singer has remained herself since she burst on to the music scene in 1998 with Destiny's Child, and that after she met the star in 2001 on the set of the Destiny's Child music video for 'Bootylicious,' Stevie was overwhelmed by how down to Earth the singer was. She continued, "She's a good role model. She's not skanky. I'm glad we have her."

Glastonbury 2014 Headliners Are First-Timers, Fleetwood Mac, Pearl Jam, Depeche Mode?


Glastonbury Festival Michael Eavis Fleetwood Mac

Glastonbury Festival boss Michael Eavis has revealed that he has more or less signed the headliners for 2014, teasing that neither act has played the historical music gathering in the past.

In an interview with NME, Eavis explained, "Next year's headliners are more or less in place. They're three bands who haven't played Glastonbury, and that's important." Though the article sent the internet into frenzy with speculation over Eavis's dream headliners Prince and Madonna, the emphasis on the word 'band' appears to suggest the acts will be more conventional four or five-pieces, perhaps in the rock genre.

Of course, both acts travel with accomplished bands - Prince particularly - though Eavis's comments leaves those possibilities in doubt - for this writer at least.

Nine Inch Nails' & David Lynch Get Creepy With 'Came Back Haunted' [Video]


Nine Inch Nails David Lynch Trent Reznor Lindsey Buckingham Adrian Belew Fleetwood Mac The Who

Industrial rockers Nine Inch Nails have teamed up with prolific filmmaker David Lynch for their new music video for 'Came Back Haunted.' After going on hiatus in 2009, the band's return was announced by lead singer Trent Reznor in February 2013, along with a worldwide festival and arena tour.

Nine inch nails
Nine Inch Nails Mark Their Return With 'Came Back Haunted.'

In typical NIN fashion, the video is about as disturbing as it can be (see also: the universally banned Broken EP videos), showing shaky images of singer/guitarist/wizard of weird Trent Reznor spliced over an image of what looks like a flobberworm. Add in a red/white flashing screen, a particularly evil eye and strange gas mask-wearing spidergirl images, and you have a pretty good accompaniment for the dark subject matter of NIN's songs. "They put something inside of me/The smile is red and its eyes are black/I don't think I'll be coming back," sings Reznor atop trademark fuzzy guitars and synthesised 'oohs.' The song is catchy and the video is strangely hypnotising - a simple idea that gets under your skin, making you look around to see if anyone's lurking behind you.

Fleetwood Mac Drop Surprise New EP On ITunes


Fleetwood Mac

Fleetwood Mac are the latest in what’s becoming quite a long procession of acts rocking up unannounced and dropping material on us causing a mass outbreak of giddyitis. That’s right the seminal British group may have already announced their live return, but they didn’t say anything about when they were going to be putting new material out. It turns out that they had an idea of when all along – namely yesterday (April 30, 2013).

The group have released an EP of new material onto iTunes without warning, their first new studio recordings since 2003’s Say You Will LP. We knew it was going to come because guitarist Lindsay Buckingham had said last month at a show "One of the things we thought would be a good idea before we hit the road would be to go into the studio and cut some new material. So last year we did that. It's the best stuff we've done in a long time and in a few days we're going to drop an EP of new stuff."

However, the surprise is that it’s dropped now. The EP contains the songs Sad Angel, It Takes Time and Miss Fantasy – all of which were written by Buckingham. It also includes the track Without You, originally written by Stevie Nicks as part of Nicks and Buckingham’s former collaborative project. The group come to the UK in November.

New Chapters To Be Written: Fleetwood Mac Release 'Extended Play' - First New Music In 10 Years


Fleetwood Mac

Fleetwood Mac are currently in the early stages of a huge tour and to prepare fans for their arrival on the world stage once more, the band have released an EP of new material, to whet their appetites. Entitled simply Extended Play, the record is available exclusively on iTunes and features three new songs written by Lindsey Buckingham (Sad Angel, It Takes Time and Miss Fantasy) as well as a revisioned track, Without You, which was originally written as part of the Buckingham Nicks project.

Speaking to Rolling Stone prior to the EP’s release, Buckingham explained that – despite many years of writing music together, he still finds that his song-writing partnership with Stevie Nicks shows new developments. “It's still evolving, and that's the beauty of it too. I've known Stevie since high school. We were a couple for many, many years, and we've been a musical couple forever," he explained. "After all this time you would think there was nothing left to discover, nothing left to work out, no new chapters to be written. But that is not the case – there are new chapters to be written.”

Extended Play marks the first release of new material from the band since 2003’s Say You Will LP.

Stevie Nicks Extinguishes Reese Witherspoon's Chances Of Playing Her


Reese Witherspoon Fleetwood Mac Lindsay Lohan

Stevie Nicks appears to have shot down any chance Reese Witherspoon had of playing her in a movie biopic, branding the Oscar winner "too old" to play her. Witherspoon has mentioned as a possible casting choice for a planned movie about Nicks and Fleetwood Mac, but the legendary singer says her days after numbered. "I've already told her she's almost too old," the singer told ET Canada at the Toronto premiere of her new documentary In Your Dreams.

It appears Witherspoon might be of the same opinion, "I love her, but she's like, 'I could play your mother," Nicks recalls. Though the Hollywood actress is just 37, a movie about the Fleetwood Mac singer is likely to focus on her younger years and rise to stardom, which probably would make it a little difficult for Witherspoon to tale the role. Anyway, she's got other things on her plate.

She was snapped on the set of her new movie 'The Good Lie' in Atlanta this week, wearing cowboy boots, a jean skirt and a teal top. The movie is based on the real life story of a young refugee of the Sudanese Civil War who wins a lottery for relocation to the U.S with three other boys. He develops an unlikely friendship  with a brash American woman assigned to help him, though struggles to adjust to the modern world and feels guilty about the brother he left behind in war-torn Sudan.

Fleetwood Mac Tour On The Way And Why Rumours Is Still Great 35 Years On


Fleetwood Mac Stevie Nicks

Fleetwood Mac is back and basically everyone is excited. Having announced a tour that will span America as well as the UK there is already plenty of speculation about where they will go and what their sets will be like.

Unlike many other great bands of bygone eras whose discursive value has been delegated to rife cynicism, Fleetwood Mac have managed to avoid such tarnish and aside from a few people who have never been fans, their return is welcomed rather than dreaded. Their iconic album 'Rumours' turns 35 this year, and like the band themselves, it still doesn't seem to be stale.

Gigwise have made a few predictions about what to expect from the UK show. One of their first suggestions, that hits the nail on the head is: "A mix of age ranges in the audience." According to the website " Fleetwood Mac manage to appeal to everyone... from children to grandparents."

35th Anniversary Of Fleetwood Mac's Rumours Headed For UK Top 10


Fleetwood Mac

35 years after it first became a UK number one, Fleetwood Mac’s classic album Rumours is on the right path to re-entering the Top 10. Featuring classic hits such as ‘Go Your Own Way,’ ‘Don’t Stop’ and ‘You Make Loving Fun,’ the album was recorded during a time of notorious turmoil within the band, as relationships between Steve Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham, as well as Christine McVie and John McVie were strained. The band members carried on in a professional capacity, but personal relationships were at tipping point and bitterness spilled out into the song writing process.

A statement from the Official Charts Company today (January 29, 2013) read “35 years after it first went to Number 1, Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours is set to re-enter the Official Albums Chart Top 10 this Sunday. Rumours is not only one of the Top 20 biggest selling albums of all time, it is also the most charted album in British history, spending a staggering 493 weeks on the Official Albums Chart.”

A special 35th anniversary edition of Rumours is released this week, with two bonus discs. One contains live versions of the album tracks (and extras) and a third disc contains a series of demo recordings, and acoustic versions of the Rumours tracks.
