After doing one album and tour as a four person band, Fleetwood Mac is now looking to replace singer/keyboardist Christine McVie according to internet buzz (which I think started at
Yep, Sheryl Crow says she may be working with the band in the future, although she didn't really word it the way the media has been spinning it - she didn't say she's "joining."
I actually predicted this a few years ago. Sheryl did a great speech for the Mac at their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame - and by the way, she came off as a big fan of the pre-Lindsey Buckingham/Stevie Nicks version of the band, even mentioning that she had seen Peter Green perform in Europe.
Sheryl has also collaborated with Stevie a few times, including on the criminally underrated "If You Ever Did Believe," off of the 1998 Practical Magic soundtrack. Sheryl also produced on a number of tracks on Stevie's 2001 album Trouble In Shangri-La, which for my money is Stevie's best solo album (even if lacked a monster single). On that tour, Sheryl sat in with Stevie's band on a few shows: I went to one, and they have great chemistry together. It will be interesting to see if this will actually happen: I think it would be great for both Sheryl and the Mac.
