Lindsay Buckingham & Stevie Nicks FLEETWOOD MAC REVISITED*
British blues band Fleetwood Mac spent years trying to make a name for themselves. But it wasn't until the mid seventies, when Americans Lindsay Buckingham and Stevie Nicks joined the group, that they started to make serious progress. When they finally broke through, they rose to success faster and higher then they ever dreamed possible. In 1975, Fleetwood Mac's eponymous album surprised everyone in the music industry by going straight to the top of the album charts and spinning off the hits “Rhiannon” and “Say You Love Me”. But the group's real breakthrough came in 1977 with the release of “Rumors”, their second album, which rocketed to the top of the chart and remained there for an astounding 31 weeks, eventually selling more than 40 million copies. The success of Fleetwood Mac's albums was mirrored by a stream of hit singles, among them “Dreams”, “Go Your Own Way”, “Rhiannon” and “You Make Loving Fun”. But by far the most memorable hit was “Don't Stop” which was chosen as US presidential candidate Bill Clinton's campaign song, putting it in steady rotation on radio stations across North America for a second time. In all, the group has sold well over 100 million records and their hits remain a staple on oldies radio stations everywhere.
Shaun Sanders is a busy singer/guitarist who has recorded and toured with rock stars, from The Buffalo Brothers, to power rock quintet Helix. His lengthy career has taken him across Canada, the US and the Caribbean. He currently fronts “ZED”, Canada's top Led Zeppelin tribute. He is a lifelong Fleetwood Mac fan. Shaun's performing partner, singer/songwriter/actress Megan Schroder, another big Fleetwood Mac fan, started her career as drummer in a dance band. She was a cast member in the stage plays “Cabaret”, “Elvis Is Dead” and the movie “Tapped Out” and wrote the song “If I Make It Through This Christmas”. She is currently lead singer of the 70s/80s cover band “Loveless”. Although Shaun and Megan knew of each other, they had never met. Then, when they were performing at the same festival, Megan's guitar player was late, so Shaun offered to fill in for him. Even without rehearsing, it went so smoothly they decided to form a duo, and their mutual love of Fleetwood Mac's music made creating a tribute a no-brainer.
