Fleetwood Mac Glad Eagles Didn't Go Their Own Way

Though Fleetwood Mac has nothing special for the closing night of Classic West this Sunday at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, at least two members of the band are curious about the Eagles reunion that will close out Saturday's schedule.

Christine McVie tells Billboard, "I was quite surprised, actually, but I'm proud of them for doing it. I think they've got a good replacement for [the late] Glenn [Frey]" -- his son Deacon and Vince Gill.

Lindsey Buckingham says, "It was just a sad thing, Glenn's passing, so I don't know what you do in that kind of situation. I don't really have any preconceptions. They're smart guys; I'm sure it all works on some level, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it works out. But, you know, it's just such a loss in the sense of Don [Henley] and Glenn for all those years."

Joining Fleetwood Mac on Sunday are Earth, Wind and Fire and Journey. The Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan will take the stage before the Eagles on Saturday.

All six acts will do it again at Classic East on July 29th and 30th at Citi Field in New York City.

It will be a reunion weekend for Stevie Nicks as four of her former boyfriends are on the bill -- Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, Don Henley and Joe Walsh.
