I said "Fleetwood Mac Sucks!" I was busy seeing Led Zeppelin, Rush, Nazareth, Yes, Ted Nugent, Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush, Aerosmith, Heart... you get the idea. I had only heard "Rhiannon" on the radio and considered it commercial fodder, nothing more. The 17th of September came around, she called me bawling her eyes out, saying she had no one to go with (Diana was 14) her parents would trust, she was going to miss a band she loved, and she had already spent the $15.00 on two tickets. That was a lot of money in 1977! So I said yes, I would take her. She even gave me gas money for my '73 Mustang Mach I. So off we went, and I figured it might be boring but I really had nothing better to do.
"It's hard to describe what I experienced at that show... I have never been more surprised by a band that I "didn't like" in my life! Completely blown away. They were "on" that night, and it was clear that EVERY person in this band was extremely talented. It was also clear there was magic in the air... you knew it was something special. I remember Stevie singing "Rhiannon", it had little in common with the radio track I had heard. It built with Stevie's incredible vocals and Christine McVie's keyboards, until she started yelling and screaming out the ending lyrics over Lindesy's guitar. I'm sure my mouth was hanging open. She gave it everything she had... I remember spittle flying from her lips and thinking how sexy it was, and how Stevie was so in the moment that she didn't care. I've never seen or heard anything like it, before or since.
"I also remember Mick Fleetwood doing an insane drum solo, which turned into him running around with huge "bongo drums", arms flailing and eyes bugging out! One of the best concerts I've ever seen, and I've seen a few."
