Real Estate’s Alex Bleeker Interviews Fleetwood Mac, Ducktails Play the Relix Office
Last month, Fleetwood Mac announced a series of arena dates beginning in April. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees will kick off their first tour in three years with a show in Columbus, OH on April 4 before making their way through the United States and Canada, including stops at Madison Square Garden in New York City, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. The tour coincides with the 35th anniversary of the release of Fleetwood Mac’s classic album Rumours . When the group’s Lindsey Buckingham began doing press in conjunction with these dates, we enlisted Real Estate/Alex Bleeker and the Freaks member Alex Bleeker to interview Buckingham for Relix. Bleeker discussed the band’s influence on his own work, Fleetwood Mac’s new generation of fans and his new album One Man Show. The interview is now available on Relix.com.
In related news, Real Estate guitarist Matt Mondanile recently stopped by to play a few songs with his Ducktails side-project. A video of Ducktails and special guest Bleeker performing “Ivy Covered House” has been posted online.
