Fleetwood Mac originally formed in London in 1967. They were founded by guitarist Peter Green, drummer Mick Fleetwood and guitarist Jeremy Spencer. Bassist John McVie completed the lineup for their self-titled debut album. This was one of TWO albums titled “Fleetwood Mac”.
In late 1974, while Mick Fleetwood was scouting studios in Los Angeles, he was introduced to folk-rock duo Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. Fleetwood Mac soon asked Buckingham to be their new lead guitarist, and Buckingham agreed on condition that Nicks be allowed join the band. The addition of Buckingham and Nicks gave the band a more pop rock sound, and their 1975 self-titled album, Fleetwood Mac (the SECOND album by the group to be called “Fleetwood Mac”) reached No. 1 in the U.S.
The massive, juggernaut success for the band came when they released the album “Rumours” in 1977. “Rumours,” Fleetwood Mac’s second album after the arrival of Buckingham and Nicks, produced FOUR U.S. Top 10 singles and remained at number one on the American albums chart for 31 weeks. It also reached the top spot in various countries around the world. “Rumours” has sold over 40 million copies worldwide, making it the eighth-highest-selling album in history. The band went through personal turmoil while recording the album as both the romantic partnerships in the band (John & Christine McVie and Buckingham & Nicks) separated, although they continued making music together.
Fleetwood Mac released the album “Tusk” in 1979, and it did…um…OKAY. It just wasn’t the bajillion-seller that “Rumours” had been. Then, in 1982, they released “Mirage” before divorce, drugs and money caused the members to split and go their separate ways.
They were back together….then split….then back….then, well, you know what the deal is now. Unthinkable. Touring WITHOUT Lindey Buckingham. ~Sigh~
But we’re not gonna talk about that. Instead, we’ll play about 16 of the GREAT hits that we all love from the Fleetwood Mac era 1975-1982. And there are TONS of hits! We’ll play all of ’em between 6:00 and 10:00 Saturday night! Plus, your requests! Don’t forget to call ’em in or text them to us at (806) 350-1009! It all happens this Saturday evening from 6:00 pm until 10:00 on 100.9 The Eagle!
