Fleetwood Mac is an iconic British-American rock band formed in 1967 by Peter Green and Mick Fleetwood. The band’s name originally came from two of the member’s last names, Fleetwood and McVie, which was created by Green and Fleetwood as a way to persuade John McVie to join their new band. The band's second album Rumours achieved top-10 singles such as Go Your Own Way, Dreams, and You Make Loving Fun.
In their early days, Fleetwood Mac struggled with the constant filtering of multiple members. The folk-rock duo Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks joined the group in 1974. With the addition of the newfound pair, Fleetwood Mac’s sound evolved into a pop-rock/folk-rock sound, which can be heard in their first studio album together with Fleetwood Mac.
Breaking up in the late 80’s, with rare performances in between before the band reunited in 1997. Shortly after, Christine McVie announced her retirement from touring, leaving the group as a four-piece, but rejoined again in 2014. Fleetwood Mac’s last album Say You Will was in 2003. Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie released a side project in 2017 with contributions from some of the other band members. Today, the band is collectively Mick Fleetwood, John and Christine McVie, Stevie Nicks, Mike Campbell, and Neil Finn.
