If the sellout crowds and critical thumbs-ups are any indication, Fleetwood Mac has been a part of a great night out for a lot of people lately. Twenty years after the release of the veteran band's monstrously successful "Rumours" album, its reunited classic lineup--Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Christine McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks--is on the road, garnering enough popular support and positive reviews to quiet any skeptics who doubted the group's ability to reinvigorate itself.

Stevie Nicks had hoped to make it to Friday night at the Forum before the tears started falling. That's when she and Christine McVie apparently will be making their last appearance as full-time members of Fleetwood Mac.

Along with a bride of 8 months, Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac has been sharing his Malibu digs with Pete Bardens, one-time leader of a band called Camel, and that's just for openers: Fleetwood also is sharing his manager with Bardens, lent his drumming to tracks on the keyboard player's "Speed of Light" album, and now is sandwiching 11 far-flung Bardens concert appearances (including one at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano tonight) between new Fleetwood Mac recording sessions.
