Fleetwood Mac: Don't Stop

Happy Throwback Thursday!

 

This group is a personal favorite of mine. Fleetwood Mac formed in London in 1967 by Peter Green (guitar), Mick Fleetwood (drums), Jeremy Spencer (guitar), John McVie (bass)and started out as a British blues band. The band later picked up Christine Perfect on keyboard. After finding success in the United Kingdom, the first guitarists left and their replacements were dismissed. Before coming to the United States, Fleetwood Mac no longer had a guitarist or a singer.

In 1974, Fleetwood Mac was looking for a studio on Los Angeles, California. During their time, the band met a folk-rock duo with Lindsay Buckingham on guitar and Stevie Nicks on vocals. Fleetwood Mac originally only wanted Buckingham, but she only would join in Nicks was allowed to join as well.

In 1975, the band released their self-titled album Fleetwood Mac which reached #1 on the US charts. In 1977, the band released the album Rumors which had 4 #1 singles in the US, and won a Grammy for Album of the Year in 1978.

Fleetwood Mac is one of the top selling artists of all time. The band still tours and remains popular through many generations.
