I had read that Fleetwood Mac might be hitting the road next year. Has there been any movement on that, or on a new album?
It’s funny because six months ago or less even there was quite a bit of talk. I know Stevie [Nicks] was talking quite a bit about it in interviews, because she has a solo album out as well.
