Well, he certainly has made himself at home in the band. And why not? Neil Finn is a very talented singer and songwriter. Fleetwood Mac swooped him up to fill the shoes of Lindsey Buckingham two years ago after Buckingham was fired. The subsequent tour was very successful. Along with Finn, Mike Campbell joined the band onstage and delighted fans. They played Mac songs and some from Tom Petty’s repertoire (Campbell was his former guitarist). And, of course, Finn sang the hit from his former band, Crowded House.
Recently, Finn has collaborated with his new band mates, at least the women, for a special song. It’s called Find Your Way Back Home, and it was created to help the homeless population in New Zealand. Stevie Nicks sings lead on a verse, with Christine McVie on back-up. McVie is also credited as a co-writer for the song. It doesn’t exactly sound like a Fleetwood Mac song, but you can definitely hear those classic vocals. Stereogum.com has more details.
