Fleetwood Mac

Lucky Fleetwood Mac fan jet sets

For Randy Lane, an out-of-work laborer in Toledo, Ohio, one day had passed much like another since he was laid off last February. But all that changed a few weeks back when a sleek black limo pulled into the blue-collar neighborhood where Lane, 24, lives with his parents. Accompanied by his fiancée, Debbie Canning, and two friends, Lane piled into the limo and embarked on a whirlwind junket that would have left even the most jaded of groupies gasping.

It all started when Lane entered the “One Night Stand” with Fleetwood Mac contest sponsored by MTV, a nationwide cable channel that airs video rock music 24 hours a day. Lane’s winning entry was one of more than 200,000 received. With MTV picking up the tab, Lane and his three friends (two of whom had never flown before) were whisked by Learjet from Toledo to Phoenix. There another limo transported the star-struck quartet to the Compton Terrace Amphitheatre, where they dined at fresco with the band and made very small talk. (“Did you have a good trip?” “I really love your music”) Most notably, Randy and John McVie discussed sailing while Lane’s buddy, beer lover D.J. Cousino, swapped suds talk with Mick Fleetwood, who introduced a delighted D.J. to the pleasures of Foster’s Lager.

Lane and his pals were then treated to two hours of vintage Mac, the high point coming when Lindsey Buckingham dedicated “Hold Me” to “our good friends, Randy and Debbie.” After some quick postconcert farewells, it was back to the Learjet—and almost four hours later, Toledo. Nineteen hours after it began, the magical mystery tour was over.

After getting some sleep, Lane stopped in at his favorite hangout, Jim Dandy’s, and, between games of foosball, reflected on his good fortune. “That,” he said of the postage stamp on his winning entry, “was the best 20 cents ever spent.”

Backstage in Phoenix, Lane enjoyed a preconcert chat with mighty Mac’s members: (from left) Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood.
