Default Rumours II

After the success of Rumours, WB hoped the band would deliver a "Rumours II" style album instead of Tusk. And when they finally softened their approach with Mirage, it was sometimes referred to in the media as an attempt to craft a "Rumours II."

Here's an interesting idea: How about for the 45th anniversary of Rumours in 2022, the new lineup (with Neil Finn and Mike Campbell replacing Buckingham) rerecord the whole album as Rumours II. Maybe with Dave Stewart producing.

Bonus tracks: "Don't Dream It's Over" and "Free Fallin'"

This topic will certainly bring some great discussion.

This would amount to the current band acknowledging it has no original ideas of its own.

Well, I won't participate in any discussion, except by saying.... No.

PS: Ok, one more thing. Shouldn't this post be in Present Band forum?

This band..if it even still exists was/is so creatively bankrupt that they will not record any music old or new borrowed or blue. They function as a mercenary touring group.. or did .I'm hoping that it is over for good.

At the OP:


~diiiiieeeeesss laughing~~!!!!

That's very funny, thank you!

One almost wishes they would give it a shot for real, so they could look like the has-beens they are, with nowhere to hide from the vilification!

I agree with this statement, and other than my intial thought of "eeewwwwwwwww, *spit, spit, spit*" it would almost be funny to see them try to pull it off.

But really, I hope we never have to discuss this "mish-mash Present Band" again due to them touring.

I'm on a family ski trip with a bunch of other families and kids - ages from 19 and up. A couple of the 22 year olds who had gone to see the 2015 tour, went to the last tour. Unsolicited by me, I overheard them talking about how much this latest version of FM "sucked big time." My husband winked at me, as I had a HUGE grin on my face. And believe it or not, I kept my mouth shut and went about my business.

I of course would not pay for it but I would sure as heck listen to it on my streaming service. It would have a lurid fascination for me, like a road wreck.
