Move over, Fleetwood Mac! Marshall execs rework rock hit for the coronavirus age

Time 2 years ago

Two senior executives at Marshall Motor Group have combined their musical talents to record a special version of the chart-busting Fleetwood Mac track Don’t Stop.

They may be stuck at their respective homes because of the lockdown, but that didn’t stop company secretary Stephen Jones pounding the skins while head of property Simon Page wielded his axe and assumed vocal duties to rework the 1977 hit – taken from the British-American rock band’s album Rumours and which reached number 3 on the Billboard chart – with both performances being neatly edited together.

Christine McVie’s song now cleverly reflects the coronavirus situation while giving a Marshall angle to it – including a nod to chief executive Daksh Gupta – with lines such as:


‘If you’ve closed up your site for a while

Daksh’s videos will make you a smile

Locked in your house every day

Hoping you’ll be back at work in May.’

And as with the original song, the duo urge everyone to be positive, with Page singing:

‘Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow

Don’t stop, it’ll soon be here.’

adding:

‘Marshall will be here better than before

When Covid is gone, Covid is gone.’

Nice work, guys!
