It’s always interesting to know what influences the band to create their music.
8. Fleetwood Mac – Go Your Own Way (1977)
“People might be surprised by me choosing Fleetwood Mac, but I loved them growing up and Go Your Own Way is a classic. Feeder were going to cover this about ten years ago. We worked out a very good rock version but we didn’t end up doing it. I wish we had, actually. It’s probably been done a million times now.
“It’s a weird song, because I know that Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks were going through a really bad breakup. A great song though, and again it’s timeless. Whether you like Fleetwood Mac or not, Rumours is a classic record from start to finish. Not a bad song on it. I don’t do karaoke, but if I ever got drunk enough I might sing this. It reminds me of growing up and summers in Wales, with flashbacks to that period of my life.”
Damn. I’d LOVE to hear a cover of that song! Reckon I’ll throw in a request when I get to see them on the All Bright Electric tour…
