While these two apparently remained unconvinced,  in April bassist John McVie, during a question-and-answer session on the Penguin Fleetwood Mac fan website, said of the reunion idea:. If we could get Peter and Jeremy to do it, I'd probably, maybe, do it.
I know Mick would do it in a flash. Unfortunately, I don't think there's much chance of Danny doing it. Bless his heart.
