Fleetwood Mac Vs. Creedence Clearwater Revival – Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame Finals
The June UCR Hall of Fame finals pits two undeniably legendary bands — Creedence Clearwater Revival and Fleetwood Mac — against each other. Each month, our readers will determine which of eight legendary artists or bands is immortalized forever for their contributions to classic rock history.
Fleetwood Mac emerged from the British blues revival of the late ’60s, but after a series of lineup and style changes achieved their greatest fame and influence in the ’70s with the addition of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. They defeated Iron Butterfly and Jeff Beck to arrive in the finals, and you can check out this list of their top 10 songs if you want to understand what got them here.
Creedence Clearwater Revival exploded out of the fertile San Francisco music scene in the late ’60s and helped lead a massive roots-revival movement in rock music. They were only together a brief amount of time, but a look (and listen) to our list of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Top 10 Songs shows just how much they accomplished together. They defeated Deep Purple and the Doors to reach the finals.
