"ROLLING STONE" - Random Notes - April 21, 1977

In the latest of a series of mini disasters for FM, John McVie was jailed on a drunk driving charge following an accident after a night of heavy drinking at Carlos and Charlies in L.A. The other guy, according to McVie, ran into him, but the LAPD gave McVie a breathalizer test and was "not amused" when it came up positive.

"They whisked me away to spend a night in the drunk tank," said McVie. "My whole life passed in front of my eyes. It's also a WEIRD (my emphasis) place to wake up with a hangover."

Other bad news for the band is that Stevie Nicks lost her voice and has had to take singing lessons to strengthen it. 17 of 20 dates on their spring tour had to be cancelled. And then there's Lindsey Buckingham, who used the time off to have his wisdom teeth removed. His blood didn't coagulate properly and he's bedridden with two black eyes and a great deal of pain."
