Like many British bands in the ’60s, Fleetwood Mac started as a blues group that paid tribute to the American bluesmen they loved. Fronted by drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie, the band went through several lineup changes over the years before two Los Angeles singer-songwriters, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks, joined in 1975 and made Fleetwood Mac one of the biggest bands on the planet. For the next dozen years, they dominated the charts with their blend of classic rock and SoCal pop. Their 1977 blockbuster ‘Rumours’ remains one of the best and bestselling albums ever made, a breakup record informed by real-life tension among the band’s five members (singer-songwriter Christine McVie rounded out the group). Buckingham and Nicks’ solo careers eventually led to the split of the classic lineup, although they’ve occasionally reunited over the years for tours and records.
