Because Fleetwood Mac never really broke up, it isn't entirely correct to call the band's current album and tour a comeback. But with the return of Lindsay Buckingham and Stevie Nicks -- and a set list that leaned heavily on favorite tunes from the albums "Fleetwood Mac" and "Rumours" -- it was hard not to think of "The Dance" as a reunion album.But unlike most rock reunions, which tend to feel awkward and forced, the second coming of the Buckingham/Nicks Mac sounded even stronger than the first.

I have to admit that even though "Second Hand News" is a great way to kick off a night of what was clearly going to be hit after hit of A+, No. 1, solid-gold Fleetwood Mac tunes, hearing Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks sing the first few measures put a little stone in my throat. Lindsey sounded ragged and rough: Did he give too much to Madison Square Garden the night before? Perhaps over-carousing? Does Lindsey deign to carouse? And Stevie, oh Stevie, the top range of her uniquely fluid yet meaty voice clipped.

LandoverRomantic intrigue and changing personnel may be what keeps Fleetwood Mac an item in the gossip columns, but onstage what makes this band matter is the rhythm section.Which was why, even though singers Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie got most of the applause when the band played the Capital Centre last night, the real stars of the show were drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie. After all, they were the ones who kept the pulse percolating behind "Rhiannon" and put the push into "Go Your Own Way."

Few rock 'n' roll bands openly displayed their internal fissures like Fleetwood Mac - or rode them to greater success. But the hurt feelings and emotional turmoil that were poured onto vinyl for 1977's mega-platinum Rumours, still one of the best-selling records of all-time, are decades behind them now. When the band shows up at 1st Mariner Arena tomorrow night, for one of the last stops in the "Greatest Hits Unleashed" North American tour, don't expect...

FLEETWOOD Mac seems to revel in its own ironies.It's the classic case of the more things change the more they stay the same.The band's strongest entity has always reflected its name, and Wednesday night's show at the Capital Centre was no different, as the groove laid down by drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie was as tight as ever.But where keyboardist Christine McVie and tambourine queen Stevie Nicks used to be the unquestioned leaders of the band on stage -- the crowd used to "ooh" and "aah" just at the sight of them -- the two newest members, guitarists Rick Vito and Billy Burnette, seemed to take over that role for a largely female audience.

What is it about rock group reunions that so tantalizes fans and so traumatizes stars?When it was announced earlier this month that the members of Fleetwood Mac would reunite to perform for the Clinton inauguration, the official story was that the group's gesture was in response to Clinton's use of "Don't Stop" as a campaign anthem.But for many fans, the prospect of seeing this group together again -- Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood, the same five musicians whose 1977 release, "Rumours," spent 31 weeks at the top of the album charts -- is the ultimate in pop music wish-fulfillment, a perfect chance to recapture the past.

Fleetwood Mac's array of instruments, mike stands and amplifiers stretches across the vast Los Angeles soundstage like a miniature city, a gleaming monument to a distant era when rock was grand and this band turned its personal soap opera into arena-filling anthems. Lindsey Buckingham, the key architect of that sound, walks past the silent stage, where in a few hours the band will rehearse for its summer tour. "I'm jazzed," he says by way of introduction - not about playing with Fleetwood Mac for the first time since 1997, not about its first album of new songs in 16 years but about being interviewed about it. The musician's inordinate enthusiasm for this duty is a product of the release of that album, Say You Will.

Avril Lavigne / Patriot Center She was shut out of the Grammys this year, but Avril Lavigne didn't seem too fazed. The bratty punkish pop tart has sold 4 million copies of her debut, Let Go, and she has amassed a devoted following of teen-age girls who also find boys and life in general to be "so complicated." Lavigne plays the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Va., on Monday night. Show starts at 8, and tickets are $35. Call 410-481-SEAT, or visit www.ticket master.com for tickets. Pete Yorn / 9:30 Club Pete Yorn, a handsome alternative pop star, landed a major record deal on the spot when he sang an impromptu version of his song "Life on a Chain."

If there is one thing that Stevie Nicks has learned during her travels as a solo artist and as a member of Fleetwood Mac, it's that the power of the band makes all the difference.Especially, in her case, when she is on stage without as much as a tambourine to lend a hand.So for her latest solo tour, which landed at Merriweather Post Pavilion last night, Nicks outdid herself, employing a crack seven-piece band of hired guns that made even her most lackluster songs come vibrantly to life.Delivering a greatest hits package of 14 songs -- including three dusty Fleetwood Mac killers -- all Nicks needed to bring for success was her wispy, raspy howl and a couple of shawls.

Colbie Caillat is the queen of MySpace. There was no official coronation. But with more than 12 million views, 267,000 friends and a No. 5 song on Billboard's pop chart, Caillat (rhymes with "ballet") has to be the networking Web site's biggest success story for a newcomer. A year ago, the 22-year-old acoustic-pop-soul singer was working the front desk at a tanning salon and living with her parents in Malibu, Calif. Now, she has a hit album and a headlining tour. It's all because her tune "Bubbly" popped from MySpace to No. 1 on iTunes to adult-pop radio to top-40 radio.

The so-called big break got them nowhere. Kimberly Roads, Karen Fairchild, Jimi Westbrook and Phil Sweet - collectively known as the country-pop quartet Little Big Town - landed a record deal with Sony Music in 2000. The mighty label poured about $1 million into the recording and promotion of the band's self-titled debut, which finally hit stores in 2002. But the album, insincere and polished within an inch of its life, bombed. The foursome and Sony were unhappy, and the company soon dropped the band.

Amy Ralston leaned over the pool table, eyeing the cue and eight balls intently. She set her cue stick on her left hand, lined up her shot, then removed the stick and walked to the far side of the table. Lips pursed, she studied the table again. Then she moved to the head of the table, sliding a coaster along the table's rails as she tried to choose a pocket for the eight ball. Ralston, 37, is a skill level three player; her opponent, 57-year-old Chadha Uttamjeet, is a level seven. But by league rules, she needed to win only two games yesterday before her opponent won six to take the set. And if she sank this shot, she would send her team - Giddy-Up - to Las Vegas.

The playing field began to tilt two years ago. The operators at MTV's popular countdown show TRL were being inundated with requests for Michelle Branch. Problem was, they didn't have any videos from the young Arizona singer. Her debut CD, The Spirit Room, wasn't in stores yet. So MTV called Branch's record label, Maverick, wondering where in the world kids were seeing her clip. The answer was AOL Music. Along with Yahoo's similarly themed Web site, Launch, AOL Music has become a significant player in the music industry.

Despite the portentous title of Stevie Nicks' first solo CD in seven years, the Fleetwood Mac singer assures fans her "crystal visions" are clear again. "Trouble in Shangri-La," her collection of relationship-based songs, hits stores this month and the tracks come "pretty much from my life," Nicks says. But the CD's release comes at a time that finds Nicks healthy and seemingly in vogue again. Such wasn't the case when her last album, 1994's problematic "Street Angel," nearly capsized her career.

The fall concert season is shaping up to be quite dry not just in this area but throughout the country. Many bands had a difficult time selling tickets in the summer, therefore managers are leery about sending their other acts into the drought.Only two major arena shows have been announced -- one a holdover from the summer -- and many local clubs are also suffering empty dates because record companies are pulling tour money from bands.* Billy Idol and Faith No More perform on Sunday at the Capital Centre in Landover.

Sunday's radio auction for Center Stage raised $186,867, the second-highest total in the auction's 23-year history, according to coordinator Sydney Wilner, who called the event "a wonderful success."

The inaugural seven-day cruise of the Crown Dynasty from Baltimore to Bermuda fetched $2,300, and a pair of round-trip United Airlines business-class tickets, good for travel anywhere in the world, fetched $3,640.
