A copy of Fleetwood Mac's 35th anniversary edition of "Tusk" recently arrived in the mail. I listened to it while having my Saturday morning coffee. I bought a vinyl copy "back in the day." It reached #4 on the US chart, produced 2 top 10 singles, and sold 4 million copies worldwide. Label execs branded it a flop.
Christine McVie joined Fleetwood Mac in 1970. Christine is the pen, and the voice behind classics like "Over my Head," Don't Stop," "You Make Lovin' Fun," and the longtime concert favorite, "Songbird." She departed after their 1997 tour that produced the ban's multi-platinum live album "The Dance." Christine was on hand when "The Mac" was inducted into the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.
