Fleetwood Mac is a British-American Grammy Award-winning rock band formed in London, UK in 1967. The band has gone through multiple line-up changes over the years with Mick Fleetwood being the only original band member still present in the current line-up.

Fleetwood Mac, named after John McVie and Mick Fleetwood, is arguably one of the most successful and influential bands of the 20th century. Since their inception in the late 60s, the band has sold over 100 million records worldwide, making them one of the most successful bands ever.

Fleetwood Mac has released an astonishing 17 studio albums to date and has gone through two distinct periods of success in two different rock genres. Originally releasing blues-rock material, the band’s first two albums, “Fleetwood Mac” and “Mr. Wonderful” did well in the UK, both achieving top ten positions in the UK album charts.

As the band’s popularity began to rise, Fleetwood Mac decided to expand their style and play with a more rock and roll edge to their sound. Popular in Europe, the band toured extensively and got involved in the alcohol and drug-fuelled rock and roll lifestyle. Frontman at the time, Peter Green, found his mental state deteriorating after the use of LSD, and he eventually left the band in 1970.

From here the band went through a transitional period where Christine McVie, wife to the Fleetwood Mac’s bassist John McVie, was recruited and found the band additional success with her songwriting and vocal abilities. Fleetwood Mac continued to steadily gain popularity throughout the early 70s, but their fame exploded with the recruitment of guitarist Lindsey Buckingham and his vocalist girlfriend Stevie Nicks in 1974.

The new line-up soon released the album “Fleetwood Mac” (also known as “The White Album”) in 1975 and it proved to be a huge breakthrough success. The album shot to number one on the US album charts and spawned legendary tracks “Say You Love Me”, “Rhiannon” and “Landslide”.

The resulting pressure from this sudden success, combined with the rock and roll lifestyle such success bought, contributed to the breakup of John and Christine McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks, and Mick Fleetwood and his wife Jenny. The band channeled their emotions into their work and produced the album “Rumours”.

The raw emotion contained within “Rumours” rocketed the album to number one in both the UK and US, where it remained at the number one spot for 31 weeks. “Rumors” was an album that seemed to appeal to everyone, and still does today; it’s various singles, “Go Your Own Way”, “Dreams”, “Don’t Stop”, “You Make Loving Fun”, “Second Hand News”, “Gold Dust Woman” and “The Chain” are considered iconic, and the album itself is the second highest selling album of all time.

The band went on to release further successful albums throughout the 80s, 90s and early 2000s. While the various configurations of the group have all achieved success, the power line-up is still considered to be Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and John McVie.

The band still tours regularly across the globe, constantly changing line-up just as fans have come to expect. Fleetwood Mac is a band that has become legendary within it’s own lifetime. Its constant injections of new talent and the band’s willingness to experiment and take risks have ensured that their success will continue for years to come.
