Good news about Fleetwood Mac after the tragic suicide of former band member Bob Welch last month. During an appearance on CBS This Morning, Stevie Nicks said it’s in the plan for the group to reunite for an album and tour in 2013. Nothing is set in stone as of yet, but the possibility sounds promising. Last year Lindsey Buckingham did and interview with Rolling Stone and said, “Nothing is on the books right now. With Fleetwood Mac, there’s a lot of landmines out there politically and it’s hard to get everybody on the same page at the same time–but I think this might be one of those years where everyone will want to do the same thing.” Yesterday when Nicks was asked if everyone was on board she gave a definite, “Oh, yeah.”
For now she and Lindsey Buckingham are doing their own thing separately. The last time the group performed together was in 2009 for their “Unleashed” tour. Nicks is currently on tour, playing a few solo dates and will follow-up with the “Heart & Soul” tour with Rod Stewart. She also spoke about the suicide of Welch saying she couldn’t imagine anything being that bad to cause him to take his life. Perhaps by reuniting they can give him an all-star tribute with some of the best guitar string stroking imaginable.
