A Q&A and Video Premiere from Local Natives

I noticed you have a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s Tusk so I’m guessing Lindsey Buckingham must be an influence. Tell us about the cover. The way Lindsey uses the guitar (and the recording studio) is similar to how some of your songs are constructed.

Fleetwood Mac is a huge influence for us. Covering Tusk in the studio that they built to record that album was pretty amazing. There was the piano they recorded “Sara” on, and the stained glass window Stevie Nicks had put into her vocal room. Lindsey is an amazing songwriter, and you can hear the influence of his guitar style on our song “Dark Days.”

Sheryl Crow was on Stern today and talked Fleetwood Mac and Nicks. Howard directly asked her about being asked to join the band. Sheryl said she wanted to so bad and still wants to join the band today. But she was afraid of bad blood between her and Lindsey right away. Robin and Howard were joking and saying that bad blood and fights in the band always led to great music.
She also spoke lots about Prince and rehashed Stevie's Stand Back story. Prince called Sheryl about her song Every Day is a winding road and covered the song. they became friends until Sheryl's Central Park concert where she invited all her friends to perform for a free concert for children with AIDS. Prince chewed her out and did not perform because American Express was promoting the concert. That was the last time they spoke.
She mentioned Prince playing basketball at Sunset Sound with high heel boots on during the recording of Stand Back (according to Stevie).

There would definitely have been bad blood. I think FM dodged a bullet, actually.

It was an excellent interview. Howard asked her direct questions about Fleetwood Mac. I think Lindsey was the only group member that made it not happen. Thank goodness it did not happen.
