    Lyric Question

    you did say Tom Petty lyrics ... but please, oh, please, may I nominate Mudcrutch's Welcome to Hell by Benmont Tench? Ah, welcome to Hell / population two / little old me, and the lack of you

    Lyric Question

    So many... Ever since that bathroom scene / there's been a slight concern. I guess I like this because it has a certain internal rhythm. It's also a phrase I can imagine someone saying to a friend in a cafe & being overheard by a certain song-writer waiting in line for his coffee. The poetry in the everyday, you know?

    So Mike is in Fleetwood Mac ?

    Yeah, totally agree - that's an amusing idea in itself hahaha. Like a crowd clapping and no-one wanting to be the first to stop. As for me, I definitely like reading other people's insights and interesting ideas & learning about their passions & what they respond to! Anyway, there's such a rich diversity of ideas, not just reduced to something being either this or that. 😻
  4. Oh yes - another good one!! The hunger in her veins (which I took to mean her body was still addicted on some level, even if 20 years ago she'd gone clean & moved away from Houston). And now because of losing her house in the hurricane, she's back in the big smoke again. Also love "copper colored sky"! But sin spokeA constant invitationIt was in her veinsAnd wouldn't let her go

    oo look another snippet from October 12 Mike's smiling at people in the mosh pit in the good ol' way!! also ❤️ his red boots!
  6. What Are you Doing? would we be thinking of a name ending with o? but maybe there was more than one annoying person following them around? 2 Gunslingers oh, while I adore the gunslingers' moments of clarity, I also dig the stranger muttering his complaints to his missus. Maybe they argued all the way home? so while one fight stops another begins?

    Okay, whatever, if that's your thing. Maybe start a different thread if you really want to talk about someone in specific detail like this. She also fuelled his first wife with drugs. Even her solo career lends its success to her innate 'sex appeal' - far too 'up her own arse' for her own good. I definitely don't want to even think about policing the thread (not my place) - but this seems to be a major departure from the tone so far. The conversation so far is not reverential - I think you'll find it's been quite critical of FMac at times and protective of Mike. But it hasn't drawn on SN's personal life, sex appeal or decisions she made in the 1970s.

    Look, just personally, I'd feel very uncomfortable if this thread ever hit the level of just hating on Stevie & laying insults on all aspects of her life. There are other fan sites that do that.

    Question About "American Girl"

    Uh-huh, Mr timba, good point. Helping 45 Guy out by sharing some of the more obvious, available possibilities. Um, how about versions released as singles? Q: how sure are you that the track you heard was being sung by Tom Petty & Heartbreakers? Lots of people have covered it, so maybe worth checking on / eliminating that possibility too. Good Luck!!

    on a happier note - we got songs from rich musicians - reminds me of this from Letterman. Dave wants the house band to play an Eagles song but the legal people keep saying no, no, no... it will cost too way too much.

    Question About "American Girl"

    and option 4 is the original version of American Girl off their 1976 album (also harvested from youtube as you can see). ... after listening to the Live Anthology I am once again totally in love with this song. In the 1976 version - for a group of 20-something boys they sure hit those high harmonies. Almost sounds like girl back-up singers, but that's not the case is it?

    Question About "American Girl"

    Yes, 45 Guy, I figured these 2 would be some of the standard versions of American Girl that your radio version was so different from. Sometimes I love American Girl, sometimes I like it, sometimes I just admire the structure but don't care too much either way. I do admire that it was on their first album - what a way to start! Shadow of a Doubt - nice! What about this recording from Live Anthology?

    The part that shocked me was reading that a) there doesn't seem to have been a specific issue and that b) they didn't at least try to mediate an ending via lawyers / professionals that was more or less okay with everyone & c) friends refused to take his calls / respond to e-mails. I don't know the legal position, but if we consider Fleetwood Mac as a business for a moment, then imagine a company edging out a long-established partner in this way. What? Hey man, you're no longer working with us at the bakery as of today. No particular reason, we don't want to talk about it & we've changed the locks to the shop & warehouse. Still, there are always helpful lyrics somewhere - may I suggest the immortal Better Get a A Lawyer as growled out by The Cruel Sea? Then the officer said Better get a lawyer, son You better get a real good one Get yourself a suit and tie And get your hair cut way up high Get yourself a lawyer, son You're gonna need a real good one...

    oh my... you may be reading this elsewhere (from article in Guardian website which I have cut down to the main points) https://www.theguardian.com/music/2018/oct/12/lindsey-buckingham-sues-former-fleetwood-mac-bandmates-for-dropping-him-from-tour?CMP=twt_gu Guitarist Lindsey Buckingham is suing his former Fleetwood Mac bandmates, accusing them of breach of contract for cutting him out of their North American tour and the millions of dollars he would have earned from it. In a lawsuit filed on Tuesday in the Los Angeles superior court, Buckingham said the dispute stemmed from a clash between the planned 2018–19 Fleetwood Mac tour and Buckingham’s wishes to play some solo dates. The lawsuit claimed that each member of the group would have earned about US$12 million to $14 million for the 50-city tour, which started last week. The other band members “intentionally acted to interfere with Buckingham’s relationship with [concert promoters] Live Nation and the prospective economic benefit he was to receive as a result of his participation in the tour,” the lawsuit said. Buckingham said he learned he had been dropped two days after a Grammy MusiCares celebration in New York in January. “Less than a week after having shared a stage at MusiCares, the other members of Fleetwood Mac had suddenly cut Buckingham off entirely,” the lawsuit said. Buckingham included in the lawsuit a copy of an email he sent to the band in February, begging the band to overcome its differences. “After 43 years and the finish line clearly in sight, it is hard to escape the conclusion that for the five of us to splinter apart now would be the wrong thing,” he wrote. “If there is a way to work this through, I believe we must try. I love you no matter what.” In an interview earlier this week with Rolling Stone magazine, Buckingham blamed Nicks, his former girlfriend, for the rift, saying he was told by the band’s manager that Nicks was angry when Buckingham smirked while she was giving a speech at the January Grammy event.
