So yesterday we here at A&F discovered some very exciting news...FLEETWOOD MAC ARE TOURING!

We LOVE Fleetwood Mac! Not only are their songs all time greats but the legend behind this band is so twisted. It's like The Bold and the Beautiful, without the bad acting, "fashion" shows, disturbing old people making out and self-righteous old women in unflattering pant-suits.

When the group started there were 2 couples John & Christine McVie and Lindsey Buckingham & Stevie Nicks. Mick Fleetwood (who after watching the video below, we now believe to be one of the coolest dudes EVER) was not involved with any of them, however had the honour of watching both relationships disintegrate (as most inevitably do).

We've always loved "Go your own way", but loved it even more when we learnt the story behind it.

Lindsey Buckingham wrote it about Stevie Nicks. When their relationship came to an ugly end, he wrote this song...on which she was forced to sing backing vocals (THAT'S SOME COLD SHIT!)

Lindsey always thought Stevie was cheating on him, something she has steadfastly denied. The line "Packing up, shaking up's all you want to do" is a dig at Nicks, she asked him to take it out of the song...he refused.

We won't go into the band's other dramas...let's just say, they are one fucked up group of people...that's one of the many reasons we love them.

So below is a live performance of the song...we're sorry about the penguin but it's best just to go with it (it was the 70s after all)

So "Go Your Own Way"?
Fleetwood Mac touring?
That weird penguin thing Stevie Nicks is playing with in the video??
