Newsworthy: Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, Fleetwood Mac

By March 16, 2012

Follow me on:

It has been an eventful week for Bruce Springsteen. As his new album, Wrecking Ball, debuted at #1 on the US and UK charts, he delivered the keynote at the music portion of SXSW, during which he paid tribute about his biggest career influences, a musically diverse group including The Beatles, The Animals, James Brown, Elvis, and Woody Guthrie.

Elton John has a new album coming out soon. The artist tells Rolling Stone that The Diving Board will be a back-to-his-roots production with only bass and drums and piano as accompaniment. He credits the album's producer, T Bone Burnett with the idea, which has resulted in what John calls "the most exciting solo record I've done in a long, long time."

Things are about to get really busy on the live concert circuit. Coming soon:

What's this? No more Fleetwood Mac reunions? Mick Fleetwood says we may never see the group perform together again. In an interview with Playboy (you know, the magazine guys read because of the excellent interviews) Fleetwood attributes this to the fact that Stevie Nicks seems more focused on her solo career than in getting The Mac back together. Both Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham spoke optimistically throughout 2011 about the near certainty of another tour, and possibly even a new Fleetwood Mac album.
