All of us... anyone that's been in Fleetwood Mac, as far as I've been aware, has been seemingly pretty well brought up by their parents: not goody two-shoes - God knows we weren't - but there was a level of civility that the lads in the band were aware of, what is over the brink of decency.
Fleetwood Mac has been pretty truthful. Open about what we do. We've always done it from the inside out. Versus being pressured from the outside and changing the inside. And that's our story.
Fleetwood Mac were really accessible musically, but lyrically and emotionally, we weren't so easy. And it was our music that helped us survive. But all of us were in pieces personally.
I have a lot of respect for these rock photographers. You realize that some of them were really led into the inner circles of some of these artists and bands. And you see how those photographs really capture the artist, the moment.
I keep fit, I work out, I eat pretty damn well, I don't drink like a fish, and all of those things are tempered with a holistic mind-set that you need to damn well respect the vehicle that you're walking around in.
John Lee Hooker became a friend of mine and I love all of his work. He was truly an icon. He lived the life. I miss him.
No matter what - rehearsed, under-rehearsed, over-rehearsed, doubts about rehearsing - the first gig is always the first gig, and you put on your little praying hat, batten down the hatch, and do what you do.
Obviously, this is a huge change with the advent of Lindsey Buckingham not being a part of Fleetwood Mac. We all wish him well and all the rest of it.
Quotes from the news wire:
The new book is a pictorial book, which stays very much focused on the beginnings of Fleetwood Mac -- 1967 thought the next eight years -- and it's very much regarding what drove us as young musicians, which was blues, it's really a journey that chronicles all of those early years that are mostly unknown in America.
I think it's all personal choice. Hey, if you go straight to the source and are someone like Bob Dylan or John Lennon who made very specific choices about what they chose to do -- that had direct political meaning, that's something that that we haven't touched on. We're a band that mostly, if not entirely, relates to human relations and emotive content that means a damn, and we're very comfortable.
