some bad songs
Tusk and Tango in the Night are all classic records.
Go Your own Way is too good for words.
The Dance DVD is well worth a look too.
Rhiannon is good too. And Dreams.
Other than that I'm not fussed.
the question here should be which line up?
The early line up with Pete Green did some great stuff as did the massive 70s line up with Christine Perfect, Lyndsey Buckinham and Bonkers Woman.
Everything esle tends to be dross.
is amazing. tusk is very good too.
is my favourite track.
are an amazing band. The stuff they did in the 70's/80's was Pop/Rock perfection.
Fantastic live too.
called Stevie Nicks.
Well, that's what we call him.
I always thought they stood for everything I hated in music. but one of my friends gave me a mini-disk that includes the greatest hits. and i'm finding myself quite enjoying it.
I feel very guilty.
they stood for everything you hate in music?
that certain bands are uncool or unhip is just so teenage...actually its just so nme. they only do it to make the shite thats out today seem all exciting and revolutionary when in fact most of it is wank.
that's pretty much it
it was that when i was about 14 or 15 that was an example of what people's parents used to listen to. and i thought it was rubbish.
I already like the cars, who sound like the kind of thing i would have hated, but i hadnt heard them when i was 15 so could get away with it.
There's something quite positive about them. You have to have things you like and things you dont. And it just happened that fleetwood mac were one of the things I hated.
When you start liking things you used to define yourself against. It gets a bit dangerous. It's like one step away from saying "everything is subjective, and all music has it's merits". Which is a depressingly boring attitude to take, even if it's true.
i see what you mean. it gives you a bit of belief in what you're listening to, and i was the same when i was going through punk and metal stages, totally dismissing other stuff. i think in time though if you love music enough you come to realise that there is greatness in a lot more things than you first realised.
but then to take on your second point, i dont think it has to lead to everything being completely subjective or saying everything has its merits. its clear that some things have absolutely no merit whatsoever. however when people take the piss of bands like fleetwood mac or say bruce springsteen, its generally because they haven't really listened to them, or haven't listened to them without letting preconceptions get in the way.
