CIRCUS WEEKLY MAGAZINE -- FEBRUARY 13, 1979

"FRONT PAGES" COLUMN EDITED BY KURT LODER

(ENTITLED: MAC UPDATE; WELCH DE-EVOLVES)

Although Fleetwood Mac couldn't make it to the star-studded "Music for UNICEF" concert at the United Nations last month, they are donating a new song to the U.N.'s "Year of the Child" fundraising campaign. Written by Stevie Nicks, the tune is titled "Beautiful Child," and it will be included on the Mac's long-awaited new album, now scheduled for summer release.

"'Beautiful Child' is a lullaby," says Stevie. "It was written two years ago on a Sunday night sometime after midnight, and finished before dawn. It is my most special song....from Fleetwood Mac to the children, with love."

Meanwhile, Bob Welch and his manager, Mick Fleetwood, have been hard at work at Sunset Sound studios in Hollywood on the follow-up to Welch's platinum-selling "French Kiss" album. Interestingly, the devilish duo has decked the walls with Devo posters, and even donned an occasional Devo-style yellow jump suit for some of the sessions. Inside word has it that there may even be some discernible Devo influences on the final product. Huh....?

Thanks to Kayde for transcribing this and posting it to the Ledge and to Anusha for sending it to us.
