Rumors was a great record the first couple times I heard it, but it was so overplayed it drove me nuts.

I'm only 30 so I didn't have to hear it a million times like you! Sucks when the media can ruin stuff by beating it to death for that last dollar.

Thanks, "Sooner", for the warm welcome!

My contribution to this Fleetwood Mac thread is to say that IMO the feel of Peter Green's awesomely
original opening blues-rock riff in 'Oh Well' has resurfaced - with just a few minor creative modifications -
several times throughout Mac's 43-year musical journey. So, his influence has never really left the band.

As Billy has pointed out in this thread, I've visited the Forum regularly for quite a while now to keep
track of opinions about all matters Orange. I also write the news features for the Orange
website and update the artists/endorsees section.

Orange CEO, Cliff Cooper, and I have been working closely on the Orange book which is
now in the final stages of editing. Researching and compiling this detailed illustrated history
of Orange Amplification has been a dream of a project for me.

As UK Forum Moderator, I look forward to assisting Billy on his anti-spam mission, and being useful
to Forum members on all matters Orange wherever I can.

My mum used to be good friends with Mick Fleetwood back in the day, as well as a certain Mr Cliff Cooper :D

Hijack is such a strong word :D . I prefer to call it a Topical Contingency Operation.

Lots. She joined Fleetwood Mac after Greeny left.
Oh really? Jeez thanks for the news flash Billy. My point was, that making a connection to Peter Green through Stevie Nicks is kinda weak, considering that Fleetwood Mac with the two girls is lame crap, whereas Peter Green was awesome.

Your opinion. Record sales say otherwise. I like things about both and dislike things about both. The point is, they both were in the same band whether you like it or not.

You might recognise him from this title as Peter Green's authorised biographer!
