I'd rather Jack

Seriously, every band i work with at the moment and every band that i get sent a press release by state Fleetwood Mac as an influence. Now don't get me wrong, i understand that enough time has passed by for the Mac to be appreciated for the fantastic run they had in the mid 70's, culminating in the majesty of 'Tusk', but why the need for every band to be thought of in the context of the Mac right now? For some I think it's purely and simply the hooks and melody's, for others, it's that amazing combination of virtuosity and dry production that sets a certain, brilliant aesthetic, whilst some love the 'guilty pleasure' aspect. Either way there are very few artists who deserve to be mentioned in the same breath.

here's one.

and another

and (one of) my fav Mac song(s)
