Song Of The Day 5/28/2013: Stretch - "Why Did You Do It"
This didn't work very well, because US audiences could tell that Christine McVie, at the time their most distinguishable member because of, well, her gender (and her status as lead singer on many songs), wasn't there. To make matters worse, Fleetwood didn't join the tour, and in fact declaimed having any knowledge whatsoever about the pseudo-Mac band. So the tour was canceled. Daft Punk would never have this problem. 'Cause they wear helmets. Get it?
The fake Mac band reformed in 1975 as Stretch and recorded "Why Did You Do It" as a musical retort to Mick Fleetwood. They got some consolation out of the whole experience as the song made the British Top 20. They also made a 12-inch dance version. Their chances in the US, understandably, were probably screwed. Stretch reformed a few years ago, but I only knew that because I looked it up.
