Star Wars Watch Strategy Debate

The creator of the Star Wars franchise thinks you should watch the series in numerical order.

Many purists disagree. They think the films should be viewed in the order in which they were released.

“I have sadly taken leave of my band of 43 years, Fleetwood Mac. This was not something that was really my doing or my choice,” Buckingham told the crowd.

“I think what you would say is that there were factions within the band that had lost their perspective.”

“It harmed the 43-year legacy that we had worked so hard to build. And that legacy was really about rising above difficulties in order to fulfill one’s higher truth and one’s higher destiny.”

He refrained from commenting when one audience member yelled “F*** Stevie Nicks.”

There isn’t much there, except the words: “Destruction is Coming”.

Further causing rumors to swirl, a billboard went up in the U.K. containing graphics of the Appetite For Destruction-era band members.

Could be a reunion. Or…could just be a reissue of the band’s most iconic album.

Time will tell…

The Mac Attack Cometh!

Now that guitarist/singer/songwriter Lindsey Buckingham has been ousted from the band, Fleetwood Mac has hired two musicians to fill his very big shoes.

Guitarist/songwriter Mike Campbell of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and Crowded House frontman Neil Finn are now members of Fleetwood Mac.

As the tour was announced today, the band gave several interviews where, obviously, they were asked why they parted ways with Buckingham. Their answer: He didn’t want to start touring for another year.

Almost a full year ago, the band had started promising to announce tour plans this spring. So that kind of delay presented a problem.

Stevie Nicks told Rolling Stone:  “We were supposed to go into rehearsal in June and he wanted to put it off until November [2019],” says Nicks. “That’s a long time. I just did 70 shows [on a solo tour]. As soon as I finish one thing, I dive back into another. Why would we stop? We don’t want to stop playing music. We don’t have anything else to do. This is what we do.”

You need to get there early as these treasures will be snatched up quickly. But really, the day is more about enjoying the experience of a REAL record store.
