    This appears to be Walmart click bait, Myles. I never did get to the article.

    i was suspicious to begin with, since my understanding is that Christine and Lindsey have written an album's worth of material together for FM which is either being recorded now or is about to be.

      I had no problem pulling up the article. Did you click the top link? It takes you directly to the article. No clickbait.

      Part of the reason that I posted the piece was Stevie's comment about the music industry and how it's changed but doesn't support the artist anymore.

    OK here was the report.
    After 17 Studio Albums, Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks Confirms The Inevitable

    “If The Music Business Were Different, I Might Feel Different…”


    With 17 studio albums, 8 live albums, 23 compilation albums, 62 singles under their belt and more than 40 years together in their current incarnation, Fleetwood Mac is done recording albums. Frontwoman Stevie Nicks laid it all out in black and white this morning during a particularly illuminating interview with Rolling Stone and in between sage wisdom about men and self-discovery revealed that Fleetwood Mac’s 2003 album Say You Will is very likely the last album of original material that fans will ever hear.

    The reason? Three words: the music industry.
    “I don’t think there’s any reason to spend a year and an amazing amount of money on a record that, even if it has great things, isn’t going to sell.

    I don’t think we’ll do another record. If the music business were different, I might feel different,” reveals Stevie.

    The sad truth is that at the end of the day, Stevie’s right. With the music industry rapidly morphing into something artists like Stevie Nicks neither like or recognize, there’s almost no incentive for bands and artists to spend thousands, if not millions, of dollars to head into the studio and beat their heads against a wall trying to knock out an album that will rival their previous release, only to find that it’s being illegally downloaded or streamed on services like Spotify and Apple Music. These days, touring is where the money is – so why not hit the road for a few months with material you know will sell out large venues?

    We’ll miss throwing around the idea of one last Fleetwood Mac album, but at least we’ll get Stevie and the gang in the form of another tour slated for the end of this year!

      Fleetwood Mac was a great band. All members combined to make a much better whole then their individual talents. Fleetwood Mac was unique in that they were popular and very good. Beatles, U2, Nirvana and Foo Fighters fall in this category. Most really popular bands(for lack of a better word) - Suck. Just a comment from the cheap seats.

        Back when I first started buying music in the 60s, pretty much every time I went into a store or thee local head shop, there was always something new that was good. So far this year I've made one new music purchase. The music industry has ruined music.

          It sounds like you live in my neighborhood so to speak. Interested to hear what bands you hitched to see back in the day. I have been to the Moondance Jam in Walker. Its in a great area(Especially in summer) and a fun event. Depending on the line up, I usually go to either the Basilica Block Party or Moondance. Last year I went to Basilica mainly to see Ryan Adams. Ryan Adams was awesome. One of the better shows I saw all year. Missed Gary Clark Jr. Two newer bands that I liked: Local band Farewell Milwaukee. Their album FM is good. Another band that I surprisingly liked was Milky Chance. Kind of an alternative rock band with a reggae back beat(OK on the radio. Really good live)

          Back in the day it was bands like James Gang, Cactus, Procol Harum, Creedence and what not. Left the area in '71 but occasionally make it up to northern Minnesota for vacation but I don't know what is worse, cold and snow or mosquitos.

          Tough call on the cold & snow or mosquito's. 1971 was a little early for one of the better times for local music in Minneapolis. In late 70's and early to mid 80's, we could regularly see the Replacements, Soul Asylum, Husker Du, Suburbs, Lamont Cranston(Blues-R&B), Flamin Oh's and occasionally Prince at the bars for a $5 cover(Not much into Prince at the time). It was a good time to be into local Alternative music Nice resurgence going on right now. Some great live music venues opening to go with established places like First Avenue, Orchestra Hall, State Theater, Orpheum etc. Quality older acts occasionally make the rounds. New acts like Hippo Campus, Bad Bad Hats, Bruise Violet, Lizzo and a few others to see. On my to do list, grow up and get a little more involved with Minneapolis Orchestra(channeling my dad on the last comment) If you are in the area, give me a shout. First beer is on me.

        If an artist or band decides that the time has come to end their recording career or concert appearances or both...regardless the reasons why.....I'm perfectly fine with that. In the case of FM I have much of their output to keep me happy and satisfied until I arrive at the Pearly Gates. I'll just say thanks for the great ride, it was an awesome one!

            I am disappointed. At their reunion tour 2 years ago, Lindsey Buckingham hinted they were working on an album. The crowd reaction was deafening. Could've gone platinum. That could likely leave Taylor Swift with the last platinum album to be recorded.

              I've seen them so many times I've lost count, not to mention Stevie Nicks solo career and her drop ins with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. but hey good luck to the members of the Mac whatever they do. Its not like we are paying them to keep playing year after year. .

                They are the headliner at "The Classic" set of concerts this summer. Doobies, Steely Dan, Eagles, Earth Wind and Fire, Journey and Fleetwood Mac. Appearing in that order over two nights in LA and NYC. Stadium shows. Upper deck nosebleed tickets $200 each. I read some tickets $1,000!!!!! That's alot of money for Geezer rock! Although I would certainly go if a ticket was thrown my way.

                  Does anybody have one of the new reissues of Tusk on vinyl? I was disappointed with the stock Rumours I got last year. Sounds like a flat CD pressed to 180g. Afraid to get the same with Tusk. I also have a fairly filthy used version of Tango in the Night..which above the clicks and pops sounds AMAZING!

                    The LP is part of my Tusk deluxe box set, but I don't do vinyl, so I haven't listened to it. But I'm going over to my friend's place this weekend, and he has a good TT setup, so I'll bring it along and report back.

                    I had the original pressing years ago, and I thought it was pretty decent sounding at the time.

                    Definitely was a favorite LP of mine back then. It did sound great. Some good condition used versions available under $50. Reissue about $50 as well.

                  I just saw the tv ad for the NY concert at Citifield. Didn't say the prices. Yowzer.

                    IMO, I think an album featuring Christine back in the fold would sell well--but, then again, with the music industry in its current state (and showing no signs of improving), I can fully understand why a band like the Mac would be hesitant to commit big resources to making an album and would instead be content to knock out the odd tour and rake in the (huge) bucks that way.

                    It's a shame to think that we'll probably never hear another album of original material, but, hey, they gave us a LOT of fantastic stuff over the years. Enough to keep my ears happy!

                    Think I'm gonna spin my Tusk box set again. Third time in a month!

                      I don't think Stevie Nicks is speaking for the band. Lindsey and Christine are said to be working on an album without Nicks. A great development in my view. Never liked listening to her caterwauling.
