So what if it's an extended tequila commercial? The pairing is unexpected and cool.

You’ve heard pretty much everything you need to know about Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours, but what you probably didn’t know before this clip is how close to deportation an earlier version of the band came after a gig with the Grateful Dead. You probably haven’t heard Edith Piaf mentioned this much outside of a theatre luncheon and you probably never thought you’d see Nicole Atkins and Mick Fleetwood jam. But there they are… and it’s pretty damn good. Sponsored by Cabo Wabo Tequila (Sammy Hagar started the company) the Off The Record shows promise even if it’s just an extended booze commercial.


Also: You will fall very deeply in love with Atkins by the end of this clip. You’ve been warned.
