    Question About "American Girl"

    It really depends on my mood but it's still a darn good catchy song and I can hear why so many fans love it and why the band chose it as their big finale towards the latter half of their career. It had been a while since I listened to the original version. It's interesting how the instruments come in at the beginning and blend together, as well as the part leading to the outro, that quick start-n-stop breakdown. What don't you like about the drum beat? I think it keeps the song light and flying along, they sound good and add to the energy. cheers

    So Mike is in Fleetwood Mac ?

    I've now learned or "learned" more about Fleetwood Mac than I ever cared to. The only thing worse would be Mike joining the Eagles. Apparently there are some Fleetwood songs I like that I've heard on the radio over the years and never knew it was them. Also, I think I read somewhere supposedly Buckingham was verbally/physically abusive to Stevie. I don't know. If true I feel badly for her. From very much a grateful outsider's perspective, this all seems like a complicated mess and I still think it was a bad idea to go with Free Fallin' as a live tribute. Fleetwood Mac can exist without Mike Campbell on guitar but the Dirty Knobs doesn't as far as I know. I'm sure a lot of folks on here will give quite the cheer when their album is released. I certainly can exist without looking into this thread any further. I think this place is much too polite for something like that.

    Sad to say I've learned the hard way that is true in life, relationships as well. A word to the wise. cheers

    Ha ha, it's making me reminiscent for Tom Petty hair discussions....

    Yes it is sad, I agree and I wouldn't even be posting on this if not for Mike being a part of the band. It's pretty crazy. I figure it takes quite a disciplined grounded person to not go cuckoo over vast sums of money when one is already rich. I figure he's going to be a gentleman and honor his commitment to this tour and then he'll go back to his own band. However if he wants out he'll walk after, contract or no. Are they going to sue him to or force some kind of penalty for breach of contract? I figure Mike wouldn't give a damn. But like I said, based on interviews and such and reputation and his own style of playing the man conducts himself in a tasteful way in the public eye and I figure he'll put his head down and play through this tour, Free Fallin' and all and will really savor playing smaller clubs with the Dirty Knobs and be excited to have their first album out. cheers

    Wow! I agree. Don't saddle the man with the song he has to now play every night as a tribute to Tom. The Dirty Knobs tribute had such wild energy and emotion, again, Free Fallin' just feels very generic. Yes. I'm sure he knew while inside the band how special his situation was compared to other "horror stories" he may have heard about other bands; but something different to be a part of it, even at a far remove regarding the lawsuit. Good points.

    I think Chris Cornell or Kim Thayil called being in a band a five way marriage. Or someone did, but it makes sense. Not easy between fame, drugs, women, money, and wild egos to survive, let alone be close and dignified. From all accounts it seems like Tom did the best he could as a leader and in the end, there was a drummer change and a bass change and then back to the original bassist. Over 40 years; it's impressive.

    How much dignity can you have in the first place if you're known as the Five Fireflies?
