In 1976 when the album Rumors came out, I was blown away. I listened to this album non stop for at least a year. I must admit I was a huge Fleetwood Mac fan before that album came out but this was different. Recently, I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing the finest Fleetwood Mac tribute band in the world. I had seen them on AXS TV before, but had not seen them live.
I was brought back to 1976-77 right away. The show and the musicianship was perfect. Michelle Tyler, aka Stevie Nicks, was absolutely spot on. The set was just like seeing and experiencing Fleetwood Mac in concert. So many memories flooded back into my mind when I saw them perform. This whole tribute thing that has taken over the music scene the last decade was not my favorite type of live show, but this was different.
I have seen Fleetwood Mac live several times and this was as close to the real thing as I’ve ever witnessed. If you have a chance to see Bella Donna in concert do it! If your a Fleetwood Mac fan as I am, you will absolutely love this band. They will be performing at Pala Casino on September 12th, 2015 or you can catch them at a venue near you.
