As press reports saying that Sheryl Crow would be joining Fleetwood Mac as the new lead singer replacing Christine McVie, who has left the group, began widely circulating, Crow did what any curious singer would do. She phoned Mick Fleetwood and apparently offered to join the group. However, she was turned down.
"Sheryl called me and expressed an interest in joining the band following lots of speculation in the American press about it," Fleetwood said, according to the World Entertainment News Network. "Sheryl already has a very close relationship with our band member Stevie Nicks and was keen to join our ship, but I told her there isn't room for another member. Sheryl is a great songwriter and an accomplished keyboard player, but we don't need anyone else."
