A Q&A and Video Premiere from Local Natives

I noticed you have a cover of Fleetwood Macís Tusk so Iím 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 ďSaraĒ 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 ďDark Days.Ē

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.

Default Favourite music for middle aged Britons is Fleetwood Mac, Queen and Bowie

Well I'm quite pleased to know I'm not yet in the middle aged bracket (as far as the Independent is concerned).


MIDDLE-AGED PEOPLE WATCH GREASE, LISTEN TO DAVID BOWIE AND WANT TO SEE NORTHERN LIGHTS, STUDY SUGGESTS

Is seeing the Northern Lights or learning a new language on your bucket list? Do you like Fleetwood Mac, the film Grease and drive a Ford Fiesta? If so, new research suggests you are in the middle-age bracket.

A recent survey by Nationwide building society looked into the finances, lifestyle habits, concerns and aspirations of 2,000 50 to 59 year olds.

According to the results, one in five average 50-something wants to travel the world and one in eight (12 per cent) wishes to learn a new language. Other travel-based adventures feature high on the bucket list including a third vying to see the Northern Lights (39 per cent), 13 per cent wishing to swim with dolphins and five per cent wanting to travel out of space.

The average 50-something also has a number of regrets mainly tied to finance and adventure. More than a third (34 per cent) wish they had saved more money while 31 per cent wish they had travelled more. More than a quarter (26 per cent) wish they had saved more money into their pension, a quarter regretted not doing enough exercise and just under a fifth (19 per cent) wished they hadnít lost touch with family and friends.

A quarter of those surveyed were divorced or single but almost three quarters were in relationships, the average length being 24 years.

The nine things 50-59 year olds are partial to are divided into music, film and TV. Favourite music of those in the age range is Fleetwood Mac, Queen and David Bowie while the favourite films are the John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John featuring musical Grease, ET and Indiana Jones. Iconic British comedies like Blackadder, Only Fools and Horses and Fawlty Towers top the list of favourite programmes to watch on television.

The survey found that health fears top the list of worries for people in the age range with more than half (58 per cent) saying their health is a concern and more than a third (38 per cent) worried about their partnerís health.

The next line of worries largely revolves around financial concerns including 46 per cent concerned about money saving and more than a third (35 per cent) worried about the strength of their pension.

The average annual income for a 50-something in the UK is £19,165 and amount of debt is £4,641 with an overdraft of £330. They tend to have savings of £4,511 and a monthly disposable income of £297.

Who knew we could have that in common? I spent a small fortune on both bands.

Yes, it's mainly my mother's doing, she's a huge Freddie Mercury fan still to this day, seconded by the fact that Highlander is one of my favourite movies.

In my case, it's my sister's doing. I'm more of a Brian's fan, but clearly I adore the whole band. No drama there.
