Thanks for following along on my musical adventure. Today we feature the band, Fleetwood Mac.
Fleetwood Mac is named after Mick Fleetwood and John McVie founded along with original member Peter Green. Green left the group in 1969, leaving it to Fleetwood and McVie. Over the years the band has added a number of talented members. Christine McVie joined the band in 1970, with Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham joining in 1974.
Band members John McVie and Christine McVie have had an on again off again relationship as did Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. This sometimes caused turmoil during recording sessions and tours. One such story claims that the song You Make Loving Fun was about Christine McVie’s affair with one of the band’s supporting cast. According to the story, she told then-husband John McVie it was about her dog. But despite the unrest, the band somehow continued to pump out great songs.
Christine McVie left the band in 1998 but continued to work with the band in a session capacity. She has since rejoined them for select appearances.
Fleetwood Mac has sold more than 100 million records worldwide. Received Grammy-awards for their albums Rumors and The Dance.
The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.
