Fleetwood Mac has been a staple of the music scene for ever. I mean, there are very few bands that anyone can say have lasted generations! I mean just thinking of some singles like Dreams, You Can Go Your Own Way, Landslide, and countless more!
Kenny headed out to try and meet the band with some awesome success. Can you say Mick Fleetwood!
Check out Kenny’s full recap after the jump!
Well I’m back again, with…yes, another 70’s Classic Rock Group! FLEETWOOD MAC! (there’s gonna be a lot of these, as this is almost the only genre I graph!)…with the exception of a few rappers here and there….
FLEETWOOD MAC is literally in my top 3 favorite bands, with THE EAGLES being my all time favorite group, ah Don Henley why are you so mean? Ok, back on track… Where was I? Oh yeah, FLEETWOOD.
So This was a difficult band to find, (that being the hotel info). So I had to pull a few strings, maybe even ruffle a few feathers to get a check in name.This is only the beginning for me, now I have to call a million hotels. Ahhhh.
About 1 1/2 hours later BAM! Got it, one of the best feelings is when you find the hotel, like “YOU CAN’T HIDE FROM ME!” …(stalker much??)…
So now I just have to wait for show day. So I arrive to the hotel at about 1:30pm. And of course what do you think happened? Some one signed! Ahhh.
(Editor’s Note: I hate it when that happens! It kills me! M-)
John McVie hit a few items for my buddy! Keep in mind there is only 5 of us at the hotel. Why was I not there!
So we wait, wait….”OH LOOK, there’s John McVie ! ” walking in the gift shop, I wait till he exits. “Mr. McVie can you sign my rumors album?” his response … “no way!” wow …cool Buddy!”
So we wait till around 4:30pm and the SUVS’s for them pull around and get ready to pick them up in the front. We wait, and MICKS guy who runs with him knew what we were doing and informed us that Mick would sign and we wouldn’t have a issue. Cool, but we need McVie or Buckingham.
John exits first and smokes a cigarette. I ask him to sign, he just stares at me and gets in his car. Lindsey comes out and doesn’t acknowledge our existence. Ah, that’s the guy I needed! Well whatever. No, I’m not bitter…maybe a little!.
Mick comes out of the hotel and was supper cool!
He signed two items each, I brought someone with me and a buddy hooked me up. 5 items total, sweet right?
Oh but wait theres more….. Did we miss someone! ? !
STEVIE NICKS! I just really Love Stevie! (if you don’t know Stevie is a notorious non-signer)
Her SUV swings around back and I walk back there to catch a glimpse. I walk in between her SUV and the hotel door where she exits and not to my knowledge halfway in between the door is Stevie! I am literally 3 inches from her! I quickly but swiftly ! Wack out my greatest hits album.. I try and try to get her, but not so much luck!
I got Stevie a couple months before so I wasn’t too bummed!
Until next time!
