“The concert was a celebration of those early blues days where we all began, and it’s important to recognize the profound impact Peter and the early Fleetwood Mac had on the world of music. Peter was my greatest mentor and it gave me such joy to pay tribute to his incredible talent. I was honoured to be sharing the stage with some of the many artists Peter has inspired over the years and who share my great respect for this remarkable musician. ‘Then Play On’…”

Dave Mason Teams Up With Sammy Hagar, Mick Fleetwood, & The Doobie Brothers For Remake Of Traffic’s “Feelin’ Alright”

Dave Mason has joined forces with Sammy Hagar, Mick Fleetwood, Michael McDonald, The Doobie Brothers, and more for a new version of Traffic’s “Feelin’ Alright.” You can check that out below:

Mason commented:

“Who would have thought that this would go on to be covered by so many different artists and bands, you just never know. But what I do know today is that people need some hope and comfort and especially music, which is why I called up some friends to rerecord a special version of the song. To do this remotely was somewhat challenging, hence the name ‘The Quarantines,’ but the spirit of strength, hope and heart prevail.”

Hagar added:

“I’ve always been a fan of Dave Mason since TRAFFIC. He’s written some classics that I’ve cut my teeth on… learning how to play and write songs myself. ‘Feelin’ Alright’ is one of my favorites.”
