Stephanie Lynn “Stevie” Nicks was born on 26 May 1948
in Phoenix, Arizona. Happy 73 to the natural born star.

From 1972-1973 she formed a duo with her boyfriend
Lindsay Buckingham. They released one album called
Buckinham Nicks in 1973.

In 1974 Nicks and Buckingham (awesome guitarist) joined Fleetwood Mac who,
after their blues legend Peter Green left, became a pop/rock band, mind you,
a brilliant one. Between 1975 and today the group released 8 studio albums
with, of course Rumours as their multi-million selling magnum opus in 1977.
Stevie made as many solo albums herself.

Turn Up The Volume’s picked these three big Stevie moments…

(Written by Nicks. On FM’s eponymous 1975 LP)

– DREAMS –
(Written by Nicks. From the ‘Rumours’ album)

– THE DEALER –
(From her 2014 solo album 24 Karat Gold)

Reveries for the laziest day of the week

8 May 2021


(Peter Green: far right)

PETER GREEN (29 October 1946 – 25 July 2020), co-founder of the original
‘blues’ Fleetwood Mac, is regarded by many (fans and critics) as the heart
and soul of the band’s initial incarnation.

One of their greatest hits was NEED YOUR LOVE SO BAD – #2 in the UK in 1968 –
was originally a big hit for Little Willie John in 1955.

Now a new version has come to the surface featuring vocals from the late Peter Green
and a newly recorded guitar part from former Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour.

Check it out…

Happy 73 To FLEETWOOD MAC Legend PETER GREEN

29 October 2019

Happy 73 to blues legend PETER GREEN – real name Peter Allen Greenbaum – who
co-founded blues band FLEETWOOD MAC in 1967 (along with current members Mick Fleetwood and John McVie). He was born 29 October 1946. Despite being only 3 years
in the group the exceptional gifted singer/songwriter and awesome guitarist wrote a
series of brilliant, timeless classics, therefore he was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall
Of Fame
in 1998. He left the band in 1970 due to severe mental health problems. In 1979 he returned to the scene, collaborating with various artists, releasing solo records and playing live. Peter Green is still active today (see his FB-Page at the bottom).

Here are three timeless pearls to celebrate this outstanding musician’s birthday…
