Flashback: Fleetwood Mac’s “Tusk” Turns 30

October 9th, 2009
We just glanced over at the calendar and realized in just over a week Fleetwood Mac’s masterpiece Tusk will celebrate its 30th anniversary. Sure, Tusk wasn’t (and still isn’t) as successful or acclaimed as its predecessor Rumours, but this perfectly flawed double vinyl has a special place in our hearts, and to celebrate, this week’s Flashback features Stevie Nicks’ “Angel” as it appeared onstage in the 1979 Tusk documentary. As Stephen Holden wrote in his ...

October 9th, 2009

October 9th, 2009
