If you had the chance to see the newest incarnation of Fleetwood Mac, then you got a first-hand experience of their skill. The new line-up excludes Lindsey Buckingham but adds Crowded House’s Neil Finn and Heartbreakers’ Mike Campbell. Hard core fans shunned the group without their star guitarist. But has Mac ever really been known for consistency in their personnel? Not really.
So what’s the problem? Well, according to this review, it’s not the line-up, per se, but rather the age of the musicians. While the instruments are still sounding amazing at the hands of the 70-something rockers, their voices are suffering. Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie just can’t hit the notes they could when they were younger, and their blending is suffering too. At least, according to this latest review of the 2019 Mac tour.
