From my journal: Thursday June 27th, 2019 The Carole King Musical Starring Vanessa Carlton Low and behold~ My girl has done it again… Tonight I attended her opening night here in New York City as Carole King. In January she and I went to see “Beautiful” to see if she wanted to try her hand at being a Broadway actress. She decided to do it and I decided she was very brave to dive into such a huge project since we are just rock and roll women. Well, I must say, I have never been so wrong. She blew my mind tonight. She WAS Carole King~ she’s a great actress~ her compassion for the part she was playing~ it was her honor to play Carole~ and I think Carole King will be very proud of my brilliant little friend of 15 years~ for throwing her heart and her soul into telling this story. I cried from the moment I got to the theatre~ until it was all over. She didn’t know I was there until I walked into her dressing room after the show. She forbid me to come actually~ and I was in Europe finishing the FM tour~ so she freaked out and so did I. Never, (except when her baby was born) have I been so proud and so happy for her. Tomorrow I leave for LA to rest for the Australian tour~ and tomorrow~ she begins a new chapter as a shooting star~ a new little star on Broadway~ someone who can bring some joy into this crazy world… I want you all to see it if you can. It will change your state of mind, heal your heart~ and bring Carole’s beautiful, beautiful songs back to life. So, good luck my sweet girl~ I can leave New York now knowing that ~ all is well~ Love, Stevie

  • REVIEW: Fleetwood Mac at Rod Laver Arena Tuesday, September 3, 2019
    Given the well-documented dramas they’ve endured over the decades, you assumed by now Fleetwood Mac were pretty much invincible. However reuniting that classic Rumours-era line-up back for the 2014/2015 tour proved they had one more soap opera-style twist up their billowing sleeves. So in 2019, it’s either this Lindsey Buckingham-free version of Fleetwood Mac or […]

Perhaps it still […]

  • Fleetwood Mac: Still going their own way Thursday, August 22, 2019
    Since it began as a British rock band in 1967, Fleetwood Mac has undergone 19 iterations while steadily adding Americans and, most recently, a New Zealander to its line-up. Its only remaining founding member is drummer Mick Fleetwood, who recently described each version of the group as “incredibly different musical episodes in this Shakespearean play […]
  • Seeing Fleetwood Mac in 2019 is a strange experience — but they’ve always been a strange band Wednesday, August 21, 2019
    If their songs weren’t so strong, endurance may be Fleetwood Mac’s greatest legacy Thirty minutes into Fleetwood Mac’s set at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre this week, Stevie Nicks admitted that she didn’t realise “Black Magic Woman” was a Fleetwood Mac song until well after she’d joined the band. It’s an astounding admission. Sure, the song […]
