Fleetwood Mac has not stopped thinking about tomorrow.
Word has it that Sheryl Crow will join the ’70s rock band and fill the slot originally occupied by Christine McVie, who retired a few years ago to the English countryside.
Remaining Mac members Lindsey Buckingham, John McVie, Mick Fleetwood and Stevie Nicks are said to be working on new material, and Crow’s participation is seen as a positive step. She already has a close working relationship with Nicks, and is an accomplished keyboard player (she once taught piano). This makes her a perfect replacement for Christine, ex-wife of John and the band’s original keyboardist.
Reached last night in Manhattan, a rep for the band said: “The only discussion I know about Crow and Fleetwood Mac is for Crow to open for the band when they tour again. A rep for Crow was unaware of the news but promised to look into it.
