"I honestly don't know how I do it," Fleetwood says, laughing. "I think it's because I'm a blues-based drummer playing rock 'n' roll and pop music. To me, I respond to a vibe, a certain musical heartbeat. Of course, it creates problems when I play something and I'm asked to repeat it. The whole thing is a mystery to me.
The Greatest Hits Tour
Fleetwood can be forgiven for name-checking one of his own albums, as he and the rest of Fleetwood Mac have been busy combing their multi-million-selling catalog in preparation for the Fleetwood Mac 'Unleashed' Greatest Hits Tour, which starts this March and runs until "the people tell us to stop."

HOSTED BY GRAMMY NOMINATED SINGER/SONGWRITER CHRIS ISAAK SERIES DEBUTS THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 26 AT 10PM ET/ 11PM PT AND WILL FEATURE...
TRISHA YEARWOOD, STEVIE NICKS AND GLEN CAMPBELL AMONG FIRST GUESTS
New York, NY JANUARY 27, 2009 Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Chris Isaak will host BIO's new original series, "The Chris Isaak Hour" debuting on Thursday, February 26 at 10pm ET/ 11pm PT. Each weekly one hour episode will feature one of music's most popular artists in an intimate studio setting.
"On my show artists get to talk and really get to know my guests and the sound is always great. On most TV shows, artists are asked one question at the end of the show and the sound is a bit shaky," said Chris Isaak. "I also get to share in the thrill of meeting and performing with great artists like Glen Campbell one week and Michael Buble the next. I'm having a blast."
"Chris Isaak is one of the most engaging and talented performers in show business," said Tom Moody, Senior Vice President Program Planning & Acquisitions, A&E Network & BIO. "He is intelligent and funny and has an amazing rapport with his guests in both conversations and musical performances."

It still gives me goose bumps and it still makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up," says Stevie Nicks, who is eagerly anticipating the first Fleetwood Mac tour in five years, which kicks off March 1st in Pittsburgh. Nicks tell the Smoking Section that fans can count on renditions of "Gold Dust Woman", "Rhiannon", "Monday Morning" and "Dreams," but the rest of the set has yet to be hammered out. (For what it's worth, we request "World Turning.") "It's pretty easy to choose when there's such a great vault to pick from," she says. Nicks is also thrilled with her two solo releases, out in March. One is The Soundstage Sessions, a CD featuring live versions of some lesser-known jams, and an orchestral version of "Landslide." The other is a DVD called Live In Chicago, where she mixes Mac classics, solo hits and a few covers, including Dave Matthews Band's "Crash Into Me." "I think I did the song justice," she says. "I'd like to do a record where I take boys' songs and twist them into women's songs." Look out.
