Matchbox 20 Discusses Paying Homage To Fleetwood Mac

Matchbox 20, Jewel, the Cranberries, Duncan Sheik and Tonic are among the artists featured on the new album, "Legacy: A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac's 'Rumours,'" out this week.

On "Legacy," Matchbox 20 puts a rollicking spin on "Never Going Back," and frontman Rob Thomas recently spoke with MTV News about how the band reworked the Mac track.

"It was just so different," Thomas said. "The original version of the song is Lindsey Buckingham playing guitar, it's an acoustic guitar and a vocal. And we added drums and loops and fun stuff and changed it all to minor chords. We just totally changed it all around" [350k Audio].

Mac's original 1977 album became one of the biggest sellers of its time, selling over 17 million copies and producing such FM staples as "Dreams," "Don't Stop," and "Go Your Own Way." The album also features "Gold Dust Woman," a track Hole covered for the soundtrack to the 1996 film "Crow: City of Angels."

Meanwhile, Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks is putting the finishing touches on "Enchanted," a box set of solo material set for release on April 28.

Aside from her solo hits, "Enchanted" will include a few previously unreleased tracks, including demos and a live version of "Edge of Seventeen (Just Like the White Winged Dove)." The set will also come with a 64-page booklet with never before released photos and entries from the singer's journal.

Nicks is also planning to tour this spring, the dates for which have yet to be finalized.
