Brief Music Break

A while back, I wanted to include Sometimes by Fleetwood Mac in a Music Break post, but the YouTube video had become unavailable.  Today, I was able to find another video of that song.  The reason for my renewed interest is that today is the 67th birthday of the song's writer and singer Danny Kirwan.  The song, in my opinion, shows some country influences, especially with Kirwan's lead guitar, and the acoustic rhythm, played by Kirwan and/or Bob Welch.  Christine McVie adds a happy-sounding piano part.  Sometimes was included in the band's 1971 album Future Games.

Although he's now 67, Kirwan is still younger than all of Fleetwood Mac's current members, who achieved great success during the late 1970's.  In related stories, Ultimate Classic Rock reviews Bare Trees, their last album with Kirwan, and Observer has a story about his time with and departure from Fleetwood Mac.  Happy Birthday, Danny, wherever you are.
